The coffee machine is broken!

The dayjob's coffee machine is broken! Or possibly it's a fuse. Anyway, there is much woe today. Well, until people went elsewhere for coffee.

We had a great rehearsal last night - we've now run everything but the last three movements of the Distler (all the movements are short). I love this music. I was sleepy when I got to rehearsal, tired from doing intervals at the gym, and still vaguely irritable from the work day. Once we started singing, I felt complete focus and joy.

Couldn't get to sleep until midnight (we get out of rehearsal at 10 pm). I am craving silence and solitude today; instead I get people endlessly standing around talking about football. The same conversations as new people arrive late. Maybe more caffeine will help.
