After this prissy chick won Opera Idol, I was invited out by the lovely Michelle (Marketing Director), Ruth (Leasing agent at the property we were at), and Mary (Ruth's friend). Needless to say we caused a ruckus at the IHOP we descended on. Nice conversation, no end to the laughs, and we looked like we'd been friends forever. Left there 12:30 am-ish.
So if you get a chance to go see some opera live, you really should. I never expected to enjoy it, but it was very powerful and moving in person.
SIDE TRACK! I started watching Sherlock (BBC) a couple of days ago, and I am an addict for the chemistry between actors Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and Martin Freeman (Watson). Both actors have had some very main stream success; Martin being the main in The Hobbit, and Cumberbach being the villain in the upcoming Star Trek film.
There are 2 seasons up on Netflix, each 3 episodes at about hour and a half length each.
