As for knowing what each of us is like, this is me: height 1,60, short blond hair, several kilos too many, green eyes, very fair skin. I´m fourth generation Argentine but my Irish ancestry shows. Interests: my family (grown-up sons), travel, photography, classical music and opera, watching tennis and some other sports such as F1 and football. Used to be into cooking but since the boys left home my husband and I are trying to pretend we´re not interested in food anymore!
Thanks Vale!! and good to see you here!

I knew you were a women and that you had adult sons but I had no idea you had blond hair and a fair skin. I always associate Argentina automatically with dark hair and tan but yes there also are a lot of blond people there too

I don't need to know the details of the rally. Just a simple glimpse at the guy and you know how I feel

Rain Delay in BA. It seems there´s quite a storm there, hail and all, so I don´t know when they´ll be able to play.

A great aunt of mine had a box at the Colón opera theatre in BA and used to take me as a kid. I grew up hearing famous singers and watching ballet. I´ve been incredibly lucky because I´ve seen some of the great stars: Plácido Domingo, Nureyev, Vassiliev, Baryshnikov. Sometimes we´d dine at a restaurant across the way and they´d come in after the performance, and the crowd in the restaurant would stand up and applaud!
Our long road trips are the perfect opportunity to listen to full-length operas, as one can just relax and let the music in, forgetting about the plot.

My brother-in-law got me hooked on classical music. He has a good collection of historic CDs and he always brings a few when he visit us in Bariloche, which I unashamedly copy!

Hope you enjoyed your walk in the snow, Choupi!

As for my relationhip with food, everything is worth a try!
A friend of ours, a very dedicated architect, says that building houses and preparing food are quasi-mystical experiences, all about breaking bread together and giving shelter. I love cooking - I have a very sensitive palate and feel like an alchemist when I´m in the kitchen searching for the perfect flavour. But the result is that I´ve been gaining an insidious 500 gr a year, so now I´m being careful and only break out on special occasions. Like last night, when we were eight for dinner and I prepared Beef Stroganoff made with lots of onion, a bottle of white wine, dried pine mushrooms, button mushrooms, cream, crispy bacon and fresh herbs from the garden, and for dessert we had homemade vanilla icecream with fresh raspberries. And to hell with watching calories and cholesterol for one night!

I've never shovelled snow. When you or Sue describe similar scenes, I'm so much jealous of you. I can understand, though, how your eagerness to garden makes you look forward to the first signs of spring.

This reminded me of a friend of my mother who provided us free tickets for all the performances at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus theatre (famous ancient theatre from Romans times on the south slope of Acropolis in Athens). Famous orchestras, ballets... you know. Also, I've seen almost all Sophocles' and Euripides' tragedies and Aristophanes' comedies in my early teens. "Hottest" moments were when Sviatoslav Richter gave me his autograph (yep, I asked for his autograph, but I was 13 or something... Since then, never asked again from anyone else...) and watching Maurice Bejart Ballet live performances (he used to come here quite often). Never seen Nureyev though. So jealous of you. He and Margot Fonteyn were among my "teens idols".
Oh yes, I've learnt to play piano and also took ballet lessons for many years. I was very very young, almost a kid... It was somehow compulsory for middle-class girls at the time. Well, I'm not going to describe my futile attempts at pointe... Prettily blushed look I have now, really. Dunno, perhaps someone else is reading this and laughing at me.

Bariloche and Beef Stroganoff combined sound very enticing, to say the least.

What a treat to have seen classical Greek theatre in that setting!
Béjart´s ballet company was great, and so were his choreographies. I got to see Plissetskaya dance his Bolero, and transform the cliché into something magnificent. She also danced the Carmen suite and absolutely transformed herself into a Spanish gipsy.
But undoubtedly my favourite was Nureyev. We have a TV channel here, Bravo, that is airing all his ballets for the Paris Opera and I watch them again and again. A drawback of living in Patagonia is the lack of live cultural events, but well... it has other advantages...

And btw, you should continue to ask for autographs. Being “young at heart” (George´s words), includes making a fool of oneself and not caring. When one of my boys met Gastón at the Catedral ski resort in Bariloche and asked him for an autograph “for my mother” I blushed with embarrassment when he presented it to me (in a frame!), but hubby Martín hung it on the living room wall and there it stays!!!

Le Sacre du Printemps, Petrouchka, Boléro , L'Oiseau de Feu... great memories.

Re: The "Everybody Wang Chung Tonight and Seb Loeb is annoying midget Chat Thread

The motley crew of characters in here, the child like Vale, the cryptic Greek, the gnome who does all her own handywork and the famous dog trainer.

Then of course there is the good doctor Suey and the others who drop around now and then.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

And you forgot our special AO reporter, always ready to chop 2.5kg onions at once

It's true that we're a bunch of very different characters here. I like it.

Well, shovelling snow is a good physical exercise I'd say. Can't talk for Sue but there's always a time when I'm fed up shovelling and long for spring to start expressing the usual signs.

Re: The "Everybody Wang Chung Tonight and Seb Loeb is annoying midget Chat Thread

Speaking of snow Another big storm heading my way tomorrow night. Means I will stay in the hospital again so that I don't have to drive home in it or back the next day Someone else ie: teenagers will have to do the hard labor. I do like it though. Gets me out into the cold fresh air and first snowfall is so pretty.

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.

Yes, make those kids do some work Suey.

Re: The "Everybody Wang Chung Tonight and Seb Loeb is annoying midget Chat Thread

Ha! Gaston won the second set and the King beat Almagro!!!!!!!!!
One kid is at a Bday celebration of a friend, the other is up in his room gaming ( it is vacation for them btw) and hubby is in the state of Massachusetts at a book reading and signing of one of his good friends. So here I am and no live stream anywhere.

Re: The "Everybody Wang Chung Tonight and Seb Loeb is annoying midget Chat Thread

Didn't get upright quickly what the kid in his room was doing. You said "gaming" and I was kind of confused with an invented verb usually used in KostasKastoria thread. Silly me.

So another night spent at the hospital. Hope no patient requires urgent care.
