My old "boyfriend" Ilya

I've been working on arrangements for my trip to Russia next week. One of the items on my list was to book a ticket to Marinskij Theatre. When I lived in Russia we bought our tickets from a woman named Olga, who used to stand outside the Teatralnaya Kassa on Nevskij. Now you can buy tickets online.
No operas on the playbill so it will be Swan Lake instead.

I once had a little "fling" with the soloist (the Prince) in Swan Lake. It's quite a funny story but I won't go into it here.

My cousin Charlotte still considers him the most attractive man she's ever seen. So for her benefit I was going to dig up a photo. He's quite famous so there are plenty to choose from, but I wanted one with the standard figure-hugging tights.

I found this quite recent one instead! I always claim not to be superficial or care about looks, do I wish I had kept his phone number or what! ;) Hehe - this one is for Charlotte and all my female readers out there- enjoy!

Well, well, well! I see it takes a half-nude picture of a hot ballet dancer to get my girlfriends to post comments. Haha - why am I not surprised?
