Release the penguins!

I ganked this shamelessly from theweaselking.

Factoid not many people know: I used to play classical piano, when I was a wee tot. I even used to compete, nothing big, just little community kiddie contests, lil' Suzie's playing Chopin, isn't that sweet. I quit lessons when I was about 10 because I was sick of getting in screaming arguments with my instructor over fingering. (Another factoid most people don't know: I lopped off a good chunk of my right pinky when I was 4. They managed to reattach enough to save the nail, but it's a good 1/2" shorter than it should be. Combine that with the fact that I have very small hands to begin with, plus I was a kid, and yeah, I couldn't do a 1-5 full octave reach, sorry.) Now that we're in a house, my parents are actually sending my piano out to me soon, and I can start playing again. *glee!* At any rate, when I saw this, all the old memories came flooding back and I think I spring a rib laughing. Ohhh, yeah.
