Today I battled the mother of all traffic - Pittsburgh Penguins playoff game traffic (rivaled only by Steeler's game traffic) - to go take a couple pictures at The Opera. I interned there about a year ago and when they emailed asking if I could come by today, of course I agreed! The barter system, by the way, is pretty much the best thing ever because in exchange for maybe half an hour of my time total before and after The Marriage of Figero (and whatever editing I do), I got two tickets to the show. Good tickets. I gave them to my mom for Mother's Day, so I'm covered for that. Thank you, Pittsburgh Opera, I love you! You too, Mom!
