Last night, the fiance took me to see Swan Lake. Beautiful production, with excellent dancers. And then, on the way home, I looked up the ballet's synopsis online, and discovered that it bore no resemblance whatsoever to the performance I'd just seen - except for the characters' names, and there being a lake full of swans.

Which, I guess you can do with ballet, since you don't need to deal with any lyrics.

It did make for a rather confusing Wikipedia experience for me, though. Kind of like looking up the BtVS season 2 finale and seeing this:
In Whedon's original draft, the battle at the airport was less prominent than it became in the finished episode. Also, originally Buffy attempted to follow Emily's plan, and failed - rather than dismissing the plan outright.

Confusing, no?


Wonderfully fun evening, despite Wikipedia lying to me. Very tired today. Must sleep some more.

This got longer than it was intended to.

[personal profile] frayadjacent is moving to Melbourne, and I was thinking through the things she'd need to know about living here - and discovered that, actually, there are quite a lot of them. So, I'm dividing up by category, and posting them here for the amusement of anyone who has time to read things.
