Last night the lemur and I celebrated Wolfie's 250th by watching a recording of Die Entführung aus dem Serail. It was a bit abortive because for some reason the second disk (it was a VCD recording) was FUBAR but the first hour or so was interesting. I've never seen a FemDom version of Entführung before but this surely was one. Constanze was played by a large lady of mature years wearing shoulder pads that made her look like a cross between a linebacker and Brian Blessed as Exeter. Pasha Selim was a mild little chap. He never had a chance! Similarly, Blonde, curiously a redhead, was giving poor old Osmin a really rough time with a fair bit of casual bondage thrown in. Overall the singing was pretty decent with some pretty good coloratura from Constanze (she really would be better off as Queen of the Night). I'm kind of sad that I didn't get to see how it played out.

Environment Canada claim that it is 6C going up to 10C but it doesn't feel like it. Once again there is a very brisk cold wind blowing off the lake. It is though beautifully sunny so i decided to risk a bike ride. A bike ride in Toronto in late January is pretty special. So I put some air in the old tyres and headed down to Cherry Beach and then East. There was one daft bugger windsurfing but, naturally enough, a distinct shortage of scantily clad young women. Then I decided to head out to the end of the Leslie Street Spit in search of more probable forms of bird life. It was a stiff pull going out into the stiff, cold breeze but the lake looked just lovely. There was plenty of bird life on the artificial wetlands but I have no idea what it all was. They had feathers and swam. It was also quite muddy towards the end of the spit. Always fun on a bike! The spit is great though. I love it out there even when it's as cold as today.
