The Things I Do For Ethnomusicology

This morning, I had the immense privilege of standing out in the pouring rain at 10:15 this morning (having previously had to explain to a university catering services person that the broad category "tea" also includes the subcategory "black tea," and that, while I am not ordinarily a violent woman, subcategory "black tea" should be produced RIGHT NOW, since it was for a university catered breakfast, thankyouverymuch) watching a faculty procession and the 500th convocation, and having to listen to the university pipe band play "Scotland The Brave" not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES.

Oy vey.

"Scotland The Brave" is a lovely tune, but no one -- not even the pipers -- NO ONE needs to hear it three times in one day.
