Blogging cello

When I took my cello out of its case at my last lesson, there was a loud rattle, as if the soundpost had fallen. My teacher and I looked apprehensive. Then she discovered that a pencil had fallen through an f-hole and was rattling around inside. I haven't been able to get it out yet. I am assuming my cello needs the pencil to start its own blog.

Now we'll hear the real dirt. Heh, heh, heh.

But how did a pencil get in there??

Actually, I fumbled a tic tac not long ago, but luckily it rolled off and onto the floor as I cringed with visions of the "Junior Mint" episode of Seinfeld.

Yipes, I had better try to get that pencil out before my cello spills the beans that I have not been practicing much lately.

I keep pencils in a convenient little pencil holder attached to my stand. I must have bumped it with the cello somehow to get the pencil to dive in.

I've been working like crazy to make up for the time I spent in Cincinnati last month. My work is very deadline oriented, so I don't have too many options. I am missing the blogosphere though, as my Internet connections are very shaky right now. However, I have to say I've been a bit more productive without the Internet!
