Music:Scotland The Brave. If I have to listen to it three times, so do you!
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.
"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.
