Not feeling very musical

I have a work conference to go to next week, and have to leave my kitty at home with a very good and trustworthy friend sitting her, but nevertheless. I am not feeling the musical love right now. And I just took out the full-size and it feels like I have a goddamned gorilla sitting on my shoulder. I want a 14″ viola. Eff this. Thankfully, I will not be making any decisions right now since I’m not in the best mood to be making any. When I get back and hopefully things are okay, I can start to think about this in a quieter frame of mind. But right now that thing feels like it’s clamping onto my neck like the face-hugger in “Alien.”
