Seen in D.C.

I went to see Bellini's Norma at the Washington Opera last night: not bad, and I may have more to say about it later. Getting there was surprisingly easy. I left school inside the Baltimore beltway at 3:05 and was at 16th and K by 4:05. Of course, it took 20 more minutes to find even temporary legal parking. While waiting for the show to start, I walked around the neighborhood and observed:

  • A restaurant called Yee Hwa. With a name like that, I assume it's Korean -- make that South Korean, or rather Deep South Korean.
  • Olsson's Books and Records has a section (of books) labeled "Self Help & Sexuality". I hope that's a mixture of books in two different categories, rather than a whole pile of books on how to help oneself sexually.

The end of the second grading period is Friday, so that's all for tonight. At least I didn't sink so low as to repeat the joke about the duck who went to the drugstore to buy some chapstick.

...cryptic last sentence. I know the joke; but who did post that lame old canard?
