Update: toothache, opera, redheads, boiler

My back tooth rrreeeeeeelly hurts. I took it to the dentist who x-rayed it and said it seemed OK. Now I'm on anti-biotics for a gum infection and so am now into double figures on painkillers. Won't be long before I'm into treble figures on dental work. Lovely.

The painkillers might well have turned up at the right time, not only for my gums but for my ears when larians took me to see Ligeti's opera 'Le Grande Macabre' at the Coliseum. Gad.Awe-inspiring stage work, tepid music, discordance can be great, sameness never is. Worth seeing but I was ready to go home by the time it ended.

I'm a redhead now, got bored with the blonde. Looks great, trouble is how it looks under studio lights cos tans don't really work with red hair. If I put colour on, I look like a lean tangerine. If I don't I am lardgirl. Feh.

Re filming, great quotes for filming, very cheap, but still beyond my pittance...well, almost. No holiday this year and I will have to work Xmas/New year.

My cats are happy, my partner is lovely. Our lives are only slightly marred by a packed up boiler.

And the tiniest teeniest element of bone-tiredness.

Never been a fan of opera, despite propping for an opera company on various occasions over the years.

I enjoyed Carmen and La Boheme earlier this year, Le Grande Macabre was interesting in terms of spectacle but that was it.

I think I need to learn more about opera. Certainly last night reminded me to respect RocknRoll!

Interesting you mention Rigoletto: Miller's production of it is on at ENO any minute now and larians was talking about going. I'd love to see it.

You're lovely! Photos may be a while in coming, not least cos right now I am a troll in my boyfriends dressing gown!

Personally I think red would suit you better than blonde.

I hope the tooth pain gets sorted asap - owww! *hug*

Thank you:-) I am by nature more of a stereotypical redhead! It looks OK in real life, under cheap lights the whole white skin thing is not so flattering..gives one a big moooon face!

I always thought a 'moon face' was a quite mystical one... ;)
