The Opera Choice

About this design:

My husband & I were invited to see "The Flying Dutchman" in a neighboring town. I'm thinking oolala an opera(flipping of the hair required when saying that). I made this and then chose what I was going to wear. I wore a LBD and heels; get there and women are dressed in slacks and sandals. What a let down!! Plus, the opera was in German! But they did have a tellaprompter. Did I spell that right, Deb?


labradorite ovals, silver night Swarovski bicones, silver findings, acrylic focal.

    LMBO I only correct MacGyver mispellings. No one can disrespect my man!
    Bur actually I think its TelePrompTer apparently because that is what my phone corrected me to.
    Your necklace is very elegant. I’m sure you looked 3 times better.than anyone else there. I had the same thing happen to so I know what you’re talking about. My friend Kathy and I got tickets to the opening of a
    play in the renovated original theater in my home town. It was a murder mystery and there was a wine and cheese social after. Playbill said semi-formal. We wear really nice cocktail dresses. Most women were in slacks.

    Actually, I badly twisted my ankle 3 weeks before; so my dear sweet hubby had to hold me while I tried to walk upright. I wore stockings and everything. I looked up telaprompter on the computer dictionary. Prompter was listed but no telaprompter. I’ve heard that word before haven’t you?

    Yea all the time. They make fun of people that have to use them for speeches. I think they said Obama used one a couple of years ago. I guess since its a name of a brand it might be hard to.find in dictionary

    You’re right Becky people are turning into.slobs. I always appalled.when I go to Walmart. Its unbelievable the thimgs.people wear out of their house. Things I wouldn’t even wear at.home with body parts showing. I don’t wanna know that much about them thank you very much. Jeez! the biggest hoot and most disgusting site on the internet.

    My father-in-law lives next door and sends us emails from People from Wal-mart. How do they even get pictures? I have too much consideration for others that I would not want to embarrass them by looking at me looking embarrassing! Makes sense, right?!

    I think people are so.used to camera phones now.they don’t.even notice. A woman my friend Kathy knows was featured 3 years ago. She wears a humongous teased wig with bows all over, plaster face make-up, and those house duster things old women wear. And slippers. She also.apparently hides little things.she steals in the wig. Weird!

    My daughter is in high school and girls wear their pjs. I would not even go in public in my sweats until I was over 35! No kidding! No PJs in public for me ever! Nor slippers! My second job was at Sears, back then the women were not permitted to wear slacks! I loved that job too bad the clothes I spent all my money on don’t fit! :)
