Award-Winning Mother's Day Gift

I got Anne Sofie von Otter's autograph today at rehearsal for Les Troyens, as an early Mother's Day gift for my mom. She's a huge fan. That is to say, my mom is, of Anne Sofie von Otter. I'm fairly certain Anne Sofie von Otter has no feelings one way or the other about my mom.

Anyway, check it out:

My mom's gonna flip when I send this to her on Mother's Day. Shhh, no one tell her, I want it to be a surprise. ;)

Ooh, I do like Anne Sofie von Otter.
She's SO nice. And she's really down-to-earth, too. She doesn't get all gussied up for rehearsals, she just shows up in jeans and a sweater. And she kinda does this dorky Swedish person dance when the orchestra's playing up tempo. I'm enamored. :)

Also, she has invisible eyebrows. When I was up close to her, getting the autograph and talking to her, I could see them, but from far away, they might as well not be there. Trouble with being a natural blonde, I suppose. ;)

I think she's fine. I haven't seen her in a while, 'cuz, y'know, I can never get up there to visit. You'd know if I was there, 'cuz I'd be in your living room, playing with your Wii. :P

Someday, my dear, someday. :)
Oh what a great gift!
thank you for posting the photo , I have to say I always loved that ceiling I have found memories of looking up at it as a child my folks took me to concerts and rehearsals from when I was a little kid till I left for collage it was odd to see it and know just were it was taken
I guess they knew what they were doing when they designed this season's program covers. :)
