haha! You guys are going to NY?? That's cool! We went last year for the... was it Veteran's Day parade? I don't quite remember... all I remember is freezing my ass of and being in the last line w/ one other girl (b/c I'm section leader, I get to make all those fun sacrifices...) but these people kept trying to cross the street in between groups, and sometimes in front of me and the other girl, so the assistant band director came back (he's pretty young, he's alright...) and walked w/ us to make sure we didn't get cut off (again...) So, the next time people cut in front of us, he yelled at them - too bad it was a couple of cops! They kind of just stared at him, then started laughing. He was pretty bewildered. He looked over at me, and was like, "Did I just...?"
Me: "Yeah. Yeah you did... HHAHAHAAAA!!"
I will always remember that...
We don't go to cool stuff like that ....although we do have a TOB competition this Saturday. But they're threatening to postpone it to Sunday, and like...No one in band can come b/c they rearranged their schedules for Saturday...
So our Band Director (Another story about him below) sent in a letter asking the panel to exempt us b/c we'll be missing like...20 people out of a 60 something band, and just let us go to the Charter Championship thing next weekend without going to the 2nd TOB comp.
Hopefully they will, b/c we don't want to go Sunday. I won't be there. Another flag won't be there...and we only have 3...so the really really really geeky one will be there >>;
And one flag is just...awful. The Flag Judge Dude will be like..
That parade thing sounds really hilarious...whenever we march in parades, this b*tchy Drum Major yells at us and disses us and stuff.
She was like..."If you can't march correctly, you shouldn't even be in band. What's wrong with you?! You should just leave!"
The other two are really nice! Just not...her.
We freeze...we have these really skimpy outfits that are cut really low on the neckline and it's very revealing...and very cold...and it's velvet...and mesh...and they look like clown suits!!!!!!!!!!!! -sobs-
(This leading up to the B.D. story)
So one game it was like....41 degrees out...the band was in their nice warm wool uniforms, while we where in our skimpy velvet uniforms freezing.
So we call the B.D. over and are like...Hey! Mr. D!!!! We want underarmor!!!!!
B.D: Well...I don't think it'll help much...
Flags: It'll cut off this chill! WE'RE FREEZING!!!!!!!!!!!!! -wrapped up in our flags as a testament to the cold-
B.D.: Hm....-looks us up and down, stopping periodically at the weighted part of our upper bodies.(couldn't think of anything else...I'm in a hurry)Stares there again. Gives an approving nod of his head, grinning.- Well I think they look great.
Pervert...I KNOW he is...I know it. And HE picked the stupid things out!!!!!!!!
So know he's the Pervvy Band Director.
He's a great B.D., don't get me wrong. He's just...a pervert.
Anyways. I have a math project to do before I go to band practice tonight...(It's freezing outside right now too...hope it doesn't rain like last week...we were out for an hour and a half in 38 degree weather and rain...it sucked...><;...)
I'll shall be back...with another long/short post...geez...I type ALOT don't I? I love band anecdotes!! Go Band Geeks! -And lone flaggot-
