Friday Afternoon Distraction

Here are some fun things I found or was sent this week.  A little Friday afternoon distraction.

A Good Reason to Drink Soda. Eco-Tec builds houses and "other community-enhancing structures" with plastic bottles.  What a simple but genius idea.

 (Thanks Mom)

For My Next 101 List.  Yum!  This is a round up of all the best pasta dishes from cities all over.  I may have to add trying each one of these dishes to my next 101 list.
(Thanks Jackie)

I Might Get Dumped. One of my favorite bloggers got go backstage at an Arcade Fire concert.  Matt is considering dumping me for her.

What are you up to this weekend?  Crossing anything off your 101 list?

Song of the Day
Katy Perry's Firework is finally available on Hypster.  Hello song of the Day

101 Things in 1001 Days: 17

Last week my friend Shu-Ping helped me cross #17 off my 101 List: Go to an opera.  I included the opera on my list as I have never seen one before.  I was curious about an art form that has entertained people for centuries and still continues to draw an enthusiastic audience.  I was not disappointed.

We saw Puccini's Tosca at the Metropolitan Opera.  The heroin, Tosca, is one tough broad.  The opera is the story of how she must kill to save the man she loves, Cavaradossi.  There is some miscommunication at the end and the lovers both die.  It was wonderfully romantic and tragic.  I was concerned that I wouldn't feel a connection to opera but after Cavaradossi proclaims his love for Tosca with his glorious and powerful voice, I was a goner.

Almost as awe-inspiring as the show is the Metropolitan Opera House.  What a beautiful and grand place.

Shu-Ping, thank you for a wonderful evening!

Song of the Day
Today's song is Whitney Houston's I Have Nothing.  It isn't a very positive song but I know it makes Shu-Ping happy.
