O is for…

I haven’t followed my father into oblivion – at least, not yet. I have been (pre)occupied with grown-up things (translation: dull, yet stressful) mostly, but still found a way to have a little bit of fun.

Brought to you by the letter “O” and other letters that just sound like it, the little bit of fun:

– The Turner, Whistler, Monet exhibit at the AGO: Perfection. A visual feast. Extra credit: first time I had looked at Turner’s paintings without my father and I didn’t cry. Go, Me!

Wilco, live and in person. An unforgettable evening. Jeff Tweedy is so geeky in real life – he looks like a substitute English professor at a community college – that he’s utterly charming. And his voice is magic. Hearing him sing “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart” live is a dream come true.

– The Cocteau exhibit: Almost an assault on the senses, film sculpture, drawings, music, poetry. Beautifully arranged, no expense spared, and lit low, so you felt as if you were in a dream – the best way to appreciate the works.

Now back to faux grown-up, real reality.

PS Will the Olympics ever be over?

    Olympics? What’s that? Thank God for cable, so I can avoid them. Of course, being my b-day month helps. I’ve been too busy to turn on the TV!

    Life maintenance is a drag, glad you’re finding ways to have fun!

    I can’t believe that you’ll watch lame ass baseball but don’t like the Olympics. Good god, woman. I personally wish they were every TWO years instead of every four. 😉

    Candi – they are every two years nowadays…Winter in 2002, Summer in 2004. 😉

    I was referring to summer Olympics, obviously. I don’t get into the winter Olympics as much. 🙂

    Goodness. That women’s sand volleyball was sort of softporn, don’t you think? I heard that next year they are playing in the nude.
