    I have never seen the entire company, only Misa Kuranaga. The Tomasson staging is quite lavish, rivaling ABT's Macmillan production. NYCBs staging by Martins is too minimalist for my taste.

    Boston just did the Cranko, which is my favorite version though I missed Boston's production. I'm not a fran of Helgi's stagings or choreography in general, but his R&J is said to be one of his better efforts. Who did you see dance it? For me, Maria Kochetkova can make almost anything look good.

    And this is kind of heretical, but I've never really liked the Macmillan version. The Martins version was embarrassing,and should never, ever see the light of day again.

    Can we focus please?

    So speaking of "oohs and aahs" in line I was in line at a grocery store waiting to pay when the woman in front of me glanced in my direction and let out a huge "AAAAHHH." While this was clearly designed to engage me in conversation I wasn't having any of it, so I stepped back and raised an eyebrow, but she wasn't deterred and joyfully exclaimed, "My friend just took me to brunch and I'm still oohing and aahing over it! Would you like me to describe it?"

    I fled.

    O sounds while eating are a very unfortunate part of San Francisco life.

    scary story, but i'm afraid the telltale dropping of the object of the preposition is a dead giveaway that this was a manhattan transplant.

    How does this shit keep happening to you? Maybe I have an aura going and just don't know it.

    The correct response to the above query is a withering stare perhaps combined with a flat "no."
