Pops!

To celebrate our anniversary, Petunia and I went to see the Boston Pops' Fiedler tribute last night. It was wonderful! They played some v. fun Leroy Anderson arrangements I hadn't heard before, a march I played in college, and several short pieces that I didn't recognize from the program but knew as soon as they started to play. Keith Lockhart conducted, and all I can say about him is that he needs a good haircut. Dear Keith: No duck tail, okay?

Because our awesome floor tickets were free (I completed a survey for the BSO last year, and the tickets were my thanks), Pet and I decided to splurge once we got there. Champagne, you ask? No, Pops Punch. We went for a whole pitcher, so you know we were livin' it up.

My favorite part of any trip to Symphony Hall is WASP watching. Technically, I'm a WASP too, but a trashy one. The good folks who keep the BSO in business are hardcore WASPS--you've never seen so much cashmere in your life. The oldest folks there could barely stand, but their tweeds were impeccable. LOVE it!

Thanks to Petunia for a fun night. Spicy bamboo chicken rice plate--YUM!

Awesome! I'm glad you ladies had fun, and also, I love the WASP watching. The trashy kind of WASP is the only good kind anyway, Nigel, don't worry. ;)

Ha ha! You know, at L&Y's wedding there was much discussion about how one of their mamas wanted chips and dip on the tables cuz "that's what people like at weddings." You know I LOVED that--I could so relate! It's all about the trashy beginnings, baby. Bring on the fried baloney!
