- On Friday, Nick and I went to Pittsburgh to see the International at the Carnegie museum. Some of the exhibits were interesting, some seemed kind of silly, but that's pretty much how art is.
- We had lunch with his friend Ginger and her friend at an Indian restaurant. They were very nice, and Indian food is a very nice change from what I'm used to eating.
- We visited Jen and Anne's apartment and stayed there Friday night. I miss those two, they're wonderful people.
- On the way back to Meadville, I drove part of the way. Nick's car was definitely not built for small drivers, but I managed.
- I read "Ella Enchanted" on Saturday (yep, the entire book in one day). It was excellent. Is the movie any good, or is it too icky and modernized and Hollywoodized like they tend to do to many good stories these days? Should I see it, or would I be disappointed?
- Tomorrow I'm going home for Thanksgiving break, and Aunt Barb, Uncle Sam, Kara, Danny, and Grandma are coming up to see us. Yay! My mom and I were discussing going to the museum while they're here so the adults can see the International and the kids can see the dinosaurs. I personally prefer the natural history museum because I love animals, skeletons, extinct creatures, and dying/dead cultures. The art museum is neat too, but it doesn't excite me as much. And the Egyptian exhibit has this neat little tomb area you can crawl through (Nick was a bit too big to get through comfortably, but I managed just fine, which is another advantage to being short, although I hate it when museum guards glare at me the instant I walk into a room like I'm some toddler and say "Don't get too close to the table and don't touch anything!" even when I'm several feet away from anything).
And today I'm going to try to spend a lot of time in the ceramics studio, getting caught up and stuff. Woot.
