question completely unrelated to the rest of the post: i have some glucosamine tablets i was going to take for my joint issues that i've been having lately. on the bottle, it says "take three tablets daily with water." that would be three at once, yes, not one three times a day, otherwise it would say "take one tablet three times a day", yes?

my mother is a pill popper for Rx, which i could never understand, but i always declared that i wasn't a pill popper. but then i take several of several kinds a day, though they're suppliments and herbals and stuff like that instead of pain pills, etc.

anyhoo.

thank you, bostondave, for the loverly Christmas Robot card i got in the mail last night, and the picture therein. it's now hanging on my wall with the rest of the cards i got so far. (three total!)

should be studying for my ear training final, as right this instant is the only time that i'll have to study for it until it happens at 7 am on thursday morning. as i'm working until 11 pm the night before (why did i offer again? aah, yes, money.) and have to leave the house around a quarter to six to make it there on time, i shall be getting little sleep. i PLAN on getting up early enough to loosen up my vocal cords with some hot tea and try to sing my scales in a place where it won't wake the roommates (virtually impossible.) i never did well on tests that i studied for in advance, though this is an ear training thing, meaning it's training my ears to listen for different rhytmic inflections and such.

my test will have three parts:

singing: when we walk in the door, we will pull a number from a hat, 1 - 20. we will then, when called, be forced to sing whatever song corresponds to this number. you'd think that would be easy, yes? but it's just a bunch of notes on the page, no words. you must sight sing everything, adding solfege to it all (do, re, mi, etc.), which i do NOT do well with an audience, though i'm certain that the other classmates are just as nervous as i. we get ONE chance to sing it and will lose points for hesitation, wrong inflection, etc. my voice sucks at the 8 am class, i'm sure it will be much worse an hour earlier.

rhythmic dictation: he will play a melody on the piano and we will have a piece of paper with a straight line on it. we will have to write the correct notes (quarter note, dotted eighth note, etc.) for the several measures that he plays. he will play them a few times, then give us mere seconds to write it down. he flips if we pick up the pencil before he says to write, which is understandable - he is trying to help us think in groups of information, instead of just bits, much like in words versus letters.

melodic dictation: taking it up a notch, he will play different melodies on the piano and we will have to write the songs on the clefs accordingly. i always did best on this one, as my rhythm sucks.

You say "sink or swim", what a cruel cruel phrase
I'd rather fly, don't want to get caught in this endless race...

There's only so much glucosamine your body can absorb in a single sitting, so my recommendation would be to take one pill three times a day with a meal. Some things are more easily absorbed while your body's digesting food.

I don't understand music at all. I would probably fail that class.

Glucosamine will only help with joint issues if you have inflammation and swelling, so sez my Rheum.

Good luck on your test! That would make me nervous as hell, but I have severe stage fright.

On a completely non-related note, I had a dream last night that you called me and invited me to an LJ friends party. The funny thing was, you had an Irish accent! You asked me what I was doing and I said I was about to watch Trainspotting and you told me to skip it because it was awful.

Odd. Very odd. Brains are funny.

Everyone here is trying to get me to take glucosomeine with condrotin. How accurate is that spelling 0% is my guess.

Onward...

Good luck on your tests, they sound killer! Some of that stuff seems like it would be hard to a pro, but I know you'll use your tiger instincts. Go get em'
