I could die,

I could just DIE!!!!!

So I'm feeling terribly dramatic today, probably because my opera audition was tonight and so I spent the whole day making sure I liked my staging and character portrayal. Nonetheless, there are so many things that make me just want to lay down and die today.

1 UNO:

Renée Fleming is coming!!!!!


I heard that this afternoon and was so excited.

But wait.

"She might give Masterclass"....

I seriously almost just died right when I heard those words.

She's probably my biggest heroine

(outside of the lovely ladies in my family)

and I don't mean the drug.

Although, sometimes her voice acts like one to me....

I'm sad, it's true, but she's amazing.


"Nessun Dorma"

Now, for all of you bloggers out there who are not opera nerds, and

are so unfortunate as to have never heard this song, especially being sung by Luciano Pavarotti, I am posting a link so that we can remedy your sad situation. This is truly one of the most amazing Arias ever written. And I love a LOT of music. But you can't beat this.

I was lucky enough to hear Pavarotti himself sing this LIVE.

Amazing... Let me know what you think of it.

(Be sure to silence my music player on the right, first! :)

Watch it once and see how completely effortlessly he sings it.

Then listen to it again with your eyes closed.

Yes, I could just melt. Right into a puddle on the floor.

Doesn't matter when or where, EVERY time I hear it.



Seriously the cutest boy alive right now.

And he's a genius.


He's 15 months old.

I have 2 adorable photos of him on my fridge, which make me miss him all the time.

Check out my sister's (let's just drop the "in-law" thing now. We're close enough for that ;) blog to read more about Kohen and his adorable family. They're the "Laing Family Blog" in my blogroll.

And finally, classes begin tomorrow at, most sadly, 8 am.

Let the games BEGIN!

(P.S. Pics and "Balmer" news coming soon)

A bientôt, mes amies!

  1. So we have been watching a little sesame street lately and when I see your blog address it makes me sing, "la la la la, la la la la, Annie's world" (instead of Elmo's world for those who have been "off the street" a while...) Just had to say so....
