I'm settling into my new job. I work as a receptionist/office assistant in an office of about 30 people, and the dynamic is quite unlike anything I've experienced before. It kind of reminds me of "The Office." I don't think anyone ever actually does work, they just wander around and get into dumb arguments about butterscotch versus tapioca pudding and play catch from their desks. It's so blue collar New England. It's kind of cute. I was very nearly killed by the label-making machine today.

Dido and Aeneas was quite good. I like to think I am not easily impressed by amateuer theater, but the quality of the voices definitely made an impression on me. Larry Bacow was also quite convincing as a drunken courtier. It reminded me yet again how much I love opera. I'm actually starting to think nostalgically of my opera class from freshman year, having finally gotten over the painful memory of that 8-page review of Madama Butterfly. Very excited for next weekend as well.

This is my peak stress week for the semester, and considering I still had time to see an opera, that's pretty awesome. So much easier than last semester. Thank god. Lucia and James, have fun in EPIIC next fall!!!

Wouldn't the fact that it's in an office make it white collar? I tend to think of blue collar New England more as my firefighter and carpenter's union leader uncles arguing about Puerto Ricans XD

lol I heard Bacow was making a cameo in the opera?
