Holy Sh** It's HOT out there....

It's a bad plan to wear black in September in Upstate NY in case you were wondering. It was fine until archery... But hey I hit the center ring of the target 4 times!!! Considering a week ago I was hitting the pavement 6 feet in front of the target, I think I"m doing rather well.
I haven't read any post-able books lately, other than The Last Lecture, which I'll do tomorrow or the next day.
Tonight I have to rip the 1st CD from the Music 101 class to my computer and put it on my iPod, so I can listen to it between classes.
Also must look into getting digital recorder so I can play back me myself and I being the only one who knew that violins used to be strung with cat gut (ick) and that nylon was the new fiber invented in response to WWII's silk shortages!!!!
PS people were shocked that I knew including th professor!

Congrats on the archery =)
Was nylon used for violin strings? The cat gut thing is so gross - I'd like to know what the first person to try that was thinking! I play the violin and I'm really glad no cats were harmed in the making of it.

Nylon was used for a while I guess. I think they were thinking that in the Middle Ages there was an abundance of cats, and not much they were good for (they were also in some eras considered evil).
You play violin? COOL!!!!! I always kinda wanted to learn but I"m tone deaf and rhythmically impared, but that is so cool, classical violin or what?

LMAO your archery ability sounds rather more significant than mine! In the year that I did it, I only hit the center of the target once. This would have been fine, except that it was the target NEXT TO THE ONE I WAS AIMING FOR! Bwahahah!

Also, ew at the cat guts on the violin. LMAO Jenny, yes, it does make one wonder! The thought of someone thinking "Oh look! A dead cat! Let's chop it up and use it to string a violin!?" is just...bizarre!

I couldn't believe it when I did so well. I may have been inspired by the really hot guy next to me who kept hitting dead center..
Also I love it, for some reason I find it really relaxing. Weird.
We have a girl who routinely hits the next target. Actually we have a couple.
Yeah it is really gross. I don't want to know how they decided to use cat gut. Maybe because most other animals were used as food?
