YASE -- Yet Another Short Entry

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Argh. I saw "Swan Lake" tonight, here in [my hometown] St. Petersburg. And it was rather interesting, especially since I saw it with Susanne, who has actually been in a production of "Swan Lake," but the upshot of the whole thing is that I haven't time to write a proper entry. I don't even have my Harry-Potter-Pensieve of a notebook with me. What follows is just stuff I remember from today. Believe you me, this weekend I'll be writing thousands of words about Moscow, art, alcohol, race, and more.

Opera seems to bemessibng up a bit, so I'll just leave it at that for now.
