I just had an infection under my thumbnail. It's already much clearer. I did have to wear that ridiculous bandage for a day, though. Which wouldn't have been too bad, but I went to a concert today, and ended up having to explain the story at least two dozen seperate times.
In other news, I just saw an amazing opera- "Die tote Stadt." Everything about this I liked: Marietta (who was Salome when I went on VDay), Paul, the beautiful music, the trippy staging and sets, my theksy opera companion (since we've ended up going to the last two operas together), the group of American music students next to us. Check it out.
