Yeah, I'm not going to come up with dialogue or develop a storyline. Too many Laurens and Davids. They're a fun bunch, though. A dialogue between all the food items, however, that'd be hilarious! ("Hi, I'm gouda." "Hi, I'm feta." "That's 'goud'a!" ba-dum-dum. crash.)

General statments:
I got to hang out with 100,000 people last night.
The music was excellent, the weather was perfect.
I thought we were going to see La Boheme ("is the real life, is this just fantasy/caught in a landslide/ no escape from reality ..."), what the freak is Turandot? And why are three of the characters' names Ping, Pang, and Pong?
It looked as if the three couples on a triple date sitting next to us were sharing one bottle of beer for the entire three hours.
I just might have to start going to church in Brooklyn.
