Interesting. I've always been somewhere in the middle, far from either extreme. I hate everyone with foam at the mouth - regardless of what they are saying.

Mother's day

First of all, Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers on my friend's page!

Yesterday, I bought salad over at Burger King for lunch, and the lady at the counter asked, whether I was ready for the Mother's day.  I said I wasn't with a guilty look on my face.  Then she made me promise, that I will buy nicest card in the world, if it took me two hours to find it.  So I bought my mom a very nice card (to which I added my own text).  It's good to work in a place that carries Hallmark cards. :)  With a 15% employee discount. :)  I also bought her a couple nice brooches at SoHo (it was hard to find something nice - I looked at five different stores, but most of the stuff there is so vulgar... It looks like cheap junk it is.), a box of nice chocolates (with nuts - she loves chocolate with nuts) and flowers.  I feel  I have fulfilled my promise to the Burger King lady :) 

Also, back in April I bought opera tickets for us, for La Traviata.  So that's where we went today, while dad stayed home - he was just discharged from the hospital yesterday.  He is feeling fine, but isn't quite up to going out yet.  It was a very nice production - the last one by this arts director.  And the baritone who sang Giorgio Germont was absolutely and totally swoonworthy.  I don't remember ever hearing such a gorgeous voice before.  And baritone has always been my favorite voice.  Such a pity most big parts are written for tenors.
