Hah! The ISA modem performs beautifully. Messing with the winmodem was not worth it.

Hannah gave me a grand tour of Memorial Presbyterian this afternoon, and afterwards we played in the sanctuary for fun, and it was definitely nice. They have such a pretty church. Later this afternoon, I had to troubleshoot problems one of my clients was having with his Winmodem. Those stupid things. It still doesn't work, and I think it's not worth the hassle. I went out to CompUSA tonight to buy a real one for him.

Josh and I finally got around to going to Office Depot to buy a Haier 1.8 Cubic Foot refrigerator with freezer. Then we went to Schnucks to get stuff to put into it, lol. Tonight I also went to Campus Crusade again, and afterwards some of us tried to go to IHOP, which is supposed to be open until 1:00, but it was closed. So we went to Denny's instead.

Gotta love the 1-class-on-Wednesdays situation. Add to that no orchestra rehearsal tonight, cause we just had our concert. So I got a lot done today, worked some, hung out with friends after their school was over, hehe. Josh hosted another prospective Wash U freshman today, (had one Monday night) and he was into computers, so that was cool.

Uh-oh, now I'm actually going to get what I asked for. I'm learning the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with my violin teacher now, and that piece is incredibly hard. Tchaikovsky was not a violinist, so he didn't write things that were convenient to play on the violin, whatever that means. I didn't know what that meant until today. Wow, but it should be really fun, I'm looking forward to this.

X-Nelo, a Christian pop band, came and played in the Swamp today. They're actually pretty good. They played a bunch of pop songs that I know and stuff, so it was nice.

So we had our first Wash U Symphonic Orchestra concert this afternoon, and going with tradition, it was outside at the Beaument Pavilion. It was a nice day today, until the early afternoon, and then the clouds rolled in. Halfway through the second piece, it started raining. It reminds me of the story Mrs. P likes to tell of us on the Europe Tour with Strolling. Everyone just opened their umbrellas, sat the listened, and the ones without cover went under trees. It was kinda cool, the cool breeze was sooo nice to play in! So it was all good, but then in the middle of Capricio Italien, my E string broke! Yikes! I got to practice upper positions on the A-string. That's the first time I've ever broken a string playing in an orchestra, more or less a concert. Gee whiz.
