Well, I haven’t been blown up. And it’s raining, which means that everything surrounding the house will be nice and not flammable. On the other hand, you know how sometimes losing a night’s sleep while you’re traveling can sometimes make you vulnerable to catching colds? As it turns out, being unable to sleep for most of a week AND traveling, even during the day, has the same effect. Or possibly I can blame this on my graduate students, two of whom admitted in seminar last week that they were sick.
I finished my French version of Don Carlos last night. I’m not really sure what to do next. Falstaff? Rigoletto again? Nabucco? Something completely different?
