didjeridu

guess what my husband is sitting on the couch playing as i type?

don't guess wrong, the subject is a big clue.

it sounds kinda funny. like he should say "excuse me" when he pauses for breath.

now he's holding it up and looking through it like a telescope.
argh, he's a pirate!

oh, he just said that it's made of PVC and is probably fake plastic wood coating. wow. that's kind of a ripoff. but still, it sounds cool. and i guess it's rainproof now. hmmm. should have looked more closely at the booth? anyway, i'm gonna try to get Ave to add some didjeridu.

more didjeridu, they needs more didjeridu.
i have a fever, and the only prescription is more didjeridu
try to explore the space!


now, he's sitting there with it resting on his head like some belly dancer.
ooops, he's got it behind his back now like he's in chains.
suddenly he's waving it in the air as he talks to me about the Apple 2E
he looks like captain caveman.

seriously.
i took a picture.

pardon me!
he was just talking. about a computer and some guy they had on their podcast. he's fixing the guy up a computer. but as he's telling me this story he's punctuating it with swishes of the didjeridu. like it's some littlle wand or something. the darn thing is nearly as tall as me, but he's just swushing it around all la-di-da as he talks about the computer.

i started to giggle.
repeatedly.

then he gave up on the story and starting making guina pig noises.

i love my life :)

nope, that was me looking at them last time. i wanted to get one for John. good thing i waited, though - because i would have picked out the wrong one!!

i need to build on to the house so i can store the instruments we don't play ;)

To me, didgeridu always sounds like someone singing through a fan. (Did you ever do that as a kid? Do you think kids these days do that, or has AC made it as irrelevant as prank calling?)

oh yeah, i used to do that. actually, i still do it when ever i find a fan. i also like to sing INTO banjos (since i cannot play a banjo) and listen to the odd effect there as well.

the other day, i actually DID successfully play the didgeridu for a few seconds. got applause from my group of friends.

have you heard a song by Heather Dale called Mordred's Lullaby ? I think there is a didgeridu on that piece and it sounds really super cool.

okay... what does it say about me that I have a didgeridu? I've had one for years now. I can make it make noise but that's about it, I just can't NOT do the circluar breathing thing. Oh, then I got my lip pierced and that made it, well a lot harder.

i didn't know you had a didgeridu!!
no way i can do the breathing right - and i've only once made my lips do the right thing to bring out the sound. but i've made some interesting sounds trying!! ha!!

i could see how the pierced lip would mess it up.

tonight john played the chanter on his bagpipe a little bit! so much yay!
