I dislike Vegemite on toast, but a spoonful really improves beef soup! It's actually a lot like miso paste.
Rehearsal last night was great! I need to figure out the public transport next time though because I JUST missed the bus I needed and so JUST MISSED the train I needed and had to wait at the train station 45 minutes, and got home right around 11:30 pm. I have most of the music now so I have things to practice for the "tunes" part of my practice. I am actually doing quite well endurance-wise in the 2.5 hour rehearsal. That's because as you guys well know, there is not a ton of play time in a rehearsal. ;)
