Oh crap. I really don't know my operas very well. Annie is going to toss me from hers when she sees this, as she will be ashamed of me.

Excellent. I like that a lot. I told you I'd learn it tonight!

that is very very good memory aid, Nance,

And it DOES NOT REQUIRE SITTING THROUGH 16 HOURS OF OPERA to use it to remember....

Who's to say what's "proper"? Would alphabetical order be "improper"? I'll find out:
2 4 1 3

another fact used in at least one BG maybe QoD is that the Norse saga version of Gotterdammerung is Ragnarok. I think..
