so, i'm going to an opera in a couple of hours. i can't believe i forgot to mention this to my dad on the phone just now. i've never been to one before, never been so inclined. opera is like punk rock to me. if i can't understand what they're singing about, i'm not interested. wagner is cool, though (i'm going to see the flying dutchman). kinda like classical goth music, so i think i'll enjoy it.
