Figuring shit out
First things first: Training going well, life going just fine. My hideous stressballiness last week was hormones, turns out. Do not be concerned! More updatery tomorrow.


Every training, we make the new volunteers a mix CD of their theme songs. Usually I write these down; this time, I was called out of the room for a walk-in who needed BARCC-type counseling (I still don't know who was actually on office coverage), so my co-facilitator did it, and... hee. Her handwriting is an interesting puzzle.

But the big problem is that one of the people was extremely softspoken, and my co-facilitator was unable to make out quite what she was saying; she had her repeat herself a few times, but anything else would have seemed suspicious.

So I do not know what song this person wants. What is written down is "The Memory of Kintero". Neither Kintero not Quintero are pulling up anything; Kitaro doesn't have a song with "memory" in the title.

So, Detective LJ: Does anyone here have a clue what song this might be?

Long shot, but maybe this? Perhaps that was her dog?

So what IS the song?

The only thing that comes to mind is that the person writing it down majorly misheard "The Marriage of Figaro." That could be possible depending on how soft/garbled/accented the person's speech was.

There's a Japanese composer called Kitaro, but none of his pieces are called "Memory." His surname is Matsuri, though.

All I can think of is the Folksmen's "Skeletons of Quinto."

You could always tell the person that you're having trouble finding it and if they could send you a link to it online that would be helpful...

Any chance you could politely tell the person you couldn't read your coworkers handwriting and ask her again? Then she might not be embarrassed about you asking again. If your coworker knows she has bad handwriting she might be cool with you doing this. (I have terrible handwriting and wouldn't mind you blaming me to get an answer for a quite speaker.)

Perhaps "The Memory of Trees" by Enya?
