Why I am so tired this week.

A piano is sucking the life out of me. An oboe AND a piano.

Namely the piano that starts the Cheers theme.
"making your way in the world today takes everything you got!"

Channel 38 now runs an episode of Cheers at 11pm. There is something about the cornball opening theme that sort of hypnotizes me and lulls me into watching the whole episode.

And by the time the credits and ending theme roll at 11:30, and that oboe music starts up, I am completely in a deep trance.

At least I think it is an oboe. Quite frankly I don't know diddley-poo-poo about musical instruments. It could be a flute. Or a pan pipe for all I know.

What I do know is that I cannot resist the Cheers re-run. And it's sucking the life out of me.

Especially since I am also getting up these days at 6:30 in the morning to do writing exercises.

Ugh. I expect that I will only last until about next Wednesday.

When I was in college, I was in a rock band. My friend played the bassoon in the band. His verse in our theme song was:
His name is MacV and he plays the bassoon,
All the girlies is shiny and he's a raccoon.
He'll get one undressed and in bed before noon,
'cause the other guys are drizzles, but he's a monsoon.

Which just goes to show, you should never underestimate woodwinds.
