I decided long ago that I wanted to be Max Headroom. If only I could upload myself and live in the ether! Oh, well. I was musing about how I'd like to live in the wings of an opera house -- I think reading about a production of something - I forget what - with Jose Van Dam and an immense orchestra and cast that requires a staggering 5 hours made me think more about that. I could just be there all the time. That would be nice. Then this morning I thought, "I must be aspiring to be The Phantom of the Opera." That was a great movie. My father and I always had a shared interest in these things -- I could just say "Punjab lasso" and we'd both raise up one hand and exclaim, "The strangler's noose is quick to fall!."
