I'm the book that beat the speed-reader, and I'm the card the dealers won't touch. And it's just not true I'm a man-eater; all the same, we should probably go dutch.
The things you pick up as you go.
Twenty-two years old, and I detest musicals, yet love opulent operas like this version of “Anna Bolena” that was performed at the Met this past fall. One of the things I miss most about living in Italy was the fact that operas and ballets were always viable options; CULTURE is something that is decidedly lacking here, and as much as I may be a football-and-beer girl, my SOUL needs something breathtaking and graceful with a wrought-iron skeleton like the taxing grand operas and ballets sometimes. They are just breath-taking and awe-inspiring.
