Dancer Annie Mallonee(Photo courtesy of BalletMet) After consistently watching BalletMet for five years now, I have come to expect a certain amount of excellent in both technique and artistry from the company. And with the start of every season there’s a bit of nervousness—will the company continue to reach (and exceed) the staggeringly high expectations they set for themselves...

Seven Quick Takes Friday
Tonight is full of epicness. Really, I haven’t had a Friday I’ve looked forward to this much in a long time. Why? Read on… This is a huge part of it. A Gifted Man stars my second favorite actor, Patrick Wilson, whom I adore. He can sing, dance, act—do it all. Not bad to look at, either. :) That lady with Patrick? That’s Jennifer Ehle, also known as…Elizabeth...
To the ER!
(Technically, it’s called an ED—emergency department—but whatever) You just never know when excitement will arise if you’re me. Today, the excitement came at 2:30 a.m. I was woken out of a sound sleep with aches all over my body. OK, I thought. Aches. We can deal. Tylenol PM, here I come! Took the two tylenols, tried to sleep. Pain gets worse—aches turn into hot,...

Emily Cooks: Tomatoes, Peaches, and Basil (?)...
Continuing my summer tomato adventures... This is from A Couple Cooks, a really fun cooking blog, that I just recently discovered. The recipe calls for mint, but I goofed and bought basil. It was very good that way, though, so if you can’t find the mint, try basil. Everything was local! The tomatoes, the peaches, the basil. OK, the balsamic vinegar wasn’t. But the main...
