Wednesday Meanderings

I really like the days before holidays, as everyone in Austin seems to take off early, making my commute almost pleasant.

We’re getting ready to have family over tomorrow for Thanksgiving dinner. I think it’s the first big holiday meal we’ve hosted, and we’re looking forward to it quite a bit. I’m going to make cranberry salsa for a bit of seasonal regional flavor.

The Korg Trinity keyboard I’d bought on eBay arrived yesterday, and I spent a happy afternoon getting to know it. The sounds themselves are of course great, but the fun really began when I fired up the sequencer and started layering dance rhythms over pipe organs, marimbas, and panpipes. What can I say — I want to be Mannheim Steamroller when I grow up.
