Rainy days and Mondays

...are at least not snowy days. But still Mondays.

I've been meaning to hit the Midwest Independent Film Festival some first Tuesday or other. Networking yay! Was too sick last month, but am totally going to haul my finally-getting-better butt into the city tomorrow night. (Yay, Zithromax! Yay, sinuses no longer attempting to secede through the front of my skull!) The offering scheduled happens to be one that others might also be interested in, a docu about women's body image called America the Beautiful. Tickets are $10. Chicago peeps, if you end up planning to go, let me know!

In opera news, apparently we're doing Tosca next year. Went to Solange's bel canto recital yesterday afternoon, and she did "Vissi d'arte" (of all things...fach shift much?) as her encore and mentioned that. First I've heard. And actually, this time last year she was talking about The Merry Widow, which ended up morphing into Elisir, so we'll see. I did a bit of a doubletake at the public mention, tho.

Also, now that the former Café Magdalena is officially launched as the newest location of Villa Verone, our cabaret nights there are coming back! Looks like they will now be Sunday nights, and early word is that they'll be Sundays in May and July. I'll keep you posted as details become available.

"Tosca" is my very favorite opera.

I actually don't know it very well, but well enough to know that I'll probably be more into it than Elisir. Fluffy and cute and sparkly has its place, but I'm a Puccini girl at heart. :-)

The documentary sounds interesting (and also possibly depressing, but definitely interesting). Can I buy a ticket at the door? It depends on how I feel after work (first day at new temp assignment and no idea how drained I will or won't be afterward).

I assume you can, but I don't really know. I'm actually not so sure now that I'm going myself -- I ran out of gas pretty early last night, and my week has filled up fast. :-/

I just got home from work and I'm planning to spend the rest of the evening horizontal. Bleh.
