oh you guys...
I do already have stilettos and some other sexy stuff and I'm working on the ass part at the gym nearly every day. but hmmm....for sure that's another idea to think about (not really...well maybe...). However, yes there are two female judges so if I wear something more 'frumpy' then maybe I'll get their sympathy.(?)
@Avguste and Scott - I think your ideas about playing for people everyday and also going to the nursing homes are great. Except, I'm too scared to do that. I'm very shy in person and I could never just call someone up and say, "hey, I'm coming over there to play your piano and you have to listen to me." But you've got the wheels in my head turning - maybe I can try doing some of those things little by little.
The first question that comes to mind is : are you single?
Being shy is one thing, however you have to realize you dont have much time left before the competition.
The longer you wait to actually get ready mentally, playing wise and such, the harder it will be and the more fright you will have.
