Choo-Choo Choir!

So today marked my first time joining the choir at Novena Church, after a long, long time and many repeated promptings from...well, various sources. All in all, rather non-eventful (heh), although at one point halfway through the mass, one of the parish priests came up to the choir area upstairs on the balcony and started taking photos of us. Turns out he was snapping pics for the church website, and lo and behold, within a few minutes of my joining the choir, apparently I'm to be regarded as a permanent-ish fixture, since my pics already up on the site and all, oy, vey! What's interesting is that the choir conductor and organist, my former piano teacher(s), told me it was "strange timing" because in all their time conducting the choir (since last year), no priest has ever come up to snap pics. So... make of that what you will, but it seems to be another thing to add to the list of happy Nick-Choir coincidences...

Meanwhile, have I ever mentioned that when Gerard and Geraldine dropped me off at my block the last (and first) time we met up, they knew where my building was straightaway? Turns out I live in the exact same building as a friend of theirs who has since moved to Canada - a friend who introduced them to the Novena Church choir to begin with! How's that for an uncanny coincidink?? Odd, huh??? Well, add that to the list too, I reckon!!!

Anyway, here's a blurry pic of me this morning on the keyboard (with snazzy new haircut), which you can also view in all its murky glory on the N.C. website. Erk, I just realised that Novena Church and I share the same initials. Oy!!!!
