Most boring opera EVAH.

We left early. If we're gonna sleep, might as well do it at home while listening to Beethoven. In comfy shoes.

We couldn't find an open box office desk tonight; we need to ask about prices and how many we can buy at once. We're gonna call next week.

I see you hit the cheese festival - any recommendations? We're going tomorrow.

Stalls are set out along the street in Pike Place Market, with various vendors offering sample cubes and toothpicks. Almost everyone is selling their cheese pretty cheap. There was a big crowd of people sampling the cheese, though it's likely to be better earlier in the day. There's a wine tent at one end, but I didn't go in.

Bring something to carry cheese in. I parked at Pacific Place, but the garage near Macy's is closer. If you buy any, you should probably get it back to refrigeration fairly quickly.

I liked the Schlosskranz Herz.

I Puritani.

You know that opera stereotype where someone's like "I'm in love!" and the HUGE chorus is all "She's in lovve! She's in love! Woohoo she's in love!" for 20 mins? Then he runs off with the Queen of England and there's AN ENTIRE ACT of, "Her boyfriend ran away and she's crazy very very crazy" for 15 minutes followed by her coming out and acting crazy for another 15 minute. Trite. No amount of decent singing could save it, really. There was a lot of twitching and napping in the audience and I came away going, "You know, I think there's a reason that one's not done all that often anymore."

But you know it's not over until the fat lady sings.
