The Plot Of Carmen
POSTED in: Daily Life, Knitting

Carmen was pretty good! See some pictures of it here. I wasnt able to read the “subtitles”, which made it a bit tiring after the first two hours. Lesson learned: read plotline before going to the opera, especially when it is in a foreign language. 😈

On Friday, they actually begged me on their knees, to stay a week longer at work. I refused, and now I feel like a pig. Other mail carriers begged me to stay tough and keep saying no. I realize they keep asking me, because they know I cant say no, and if I do say no, they keep asking until I say yes. How can they live with themselves.

My Hoodie has come to a standstill. Rowan Yorkshire Tweed, as lovely as it is, is awful for seaming, as it keeps breaking, and now I dont know how I am supposed to finish it. Bummer. I put it aside for now until I come up with something. What to knit next?

I will now read The Glass Castle. 🙂

    That looks like one cool, modern version of *Carmen*! I’ve only seen the traditonal version.

    Opera lyrics are so insipid usually you probably didn’t miss too much in translation! Were the suptitles on the back of the chair in front of you?…or over the stage? (that’s what we have here…I prefer the back of the seat ones…) 😉

    Over the stage, and what I was able to read, didnt make any sense, like you said! Back of the seat would have been brilliant. 🙂

    Did you like the music? I don’t even think I know the storyline but love the music 😀 Yay, well done for saying no 😀 Does this mean you’re not working any more.
