a night at the opera

so the girlfriend and I are going to see opera tonight. not full-on opera, more like opera lite. They're billing it as some sort of opera version of American Idol. I doubt somehow that the evening is going to ignite a lifelong love of opera (even dating an opera singer in my youth didn't so much kindle an interest). So, I'm largely expecting to be bored, and am even bringing a book (just in case), but on the plus side, we're going to the all-you-can-eat sushi place before the show. And if there's one thing that can make anything all right, it's all the sushi I can eat...
