today is Cristina's birthday !
Cristina shows up on this little blog a lot.
Of course, that's partially because she is my roommate.
Also, we work together.
But of course, I work with a lot of people, and plenty of people have roommates they never hang out with.
Cristina started working at the opera at the beginning of our 2008-2009 season.
A few weeks after that, I wrote in my journal, "I think Cristina and I are going to be fast friends."
Totally, totally right.
Let me tell you about her. She is awesome. She will drive you to the airport at 4 in the morning. She will make the coffee in the morning. She is up for a late night drive to the food carts. She even makes a good hangover buddy.
She's pretty. She lets me borrow her clothes sometimes. She listens to me even when I'm chatty. (Which is all the time).
We are celebrating her birthday in style today. I can't tell you the details because it's (sort of) a surprise.
love you, lady. I'm so glad to know you!
