This week

March 03, 2013
Stella Dot bracelet (similar here), in the honor of my partner, born the Year of the Snake, and OPI Big Apple Red nail polish, because red brings luck. 

This week has been much better than the last, though I have been suffering from some mild insomnia, which I hope to have finally kicked off thanks to... Richard Wagner! Yes, those of you who have been reading this blog for a while know I have a bit of an obsession with Der Meister, and yesterday, despite falling asleep at around 4:30 AM, I nevertheless had to get out of bed five hours later to get ready for the Metropolitan Opera Live in HD Broadcast of Parsifal, Wagner's final opera. After six hours of pure ecstasy, I walked out exhausted, but happy, as I always am when I listen to Wagner's music. Also, seeing super-hot tenor Jonas Kaufmann shirtless on stage for about half an entire act was simply... priceless hahaha! 
One thing I noticed was that I was the only person at the theater under eighty... Which I think was a shame; during the intermission, there were so many people having fascinating conversations about the opera I'd have loved to join, but it would have been a little weird. So I kept to myself, but I started to think I should write opera reviews, since it is something I genuinely love and am not afraid to say it because some people don't think it's "cool" (honestly... to hell with "cool", I prefer chic and genuine much more). It's something you'll be hearing of! 

A Wagner opera is always an unforgettable experience...

Yours truly went a little crazy in the stationery aisle...

Very beautiful bracelet and its looking even more beautiful having red nails around in, for red is providing a very bright contrast against gold. I have never been to any opera but after reading your narration I feel I should try. You know I misread eighty for eight Lol. But soon gain my sanity back.
Your post was a nice read.

New post up
