1. My mom and I saw Metamorphoses at Arena Stage on Friday night. Honestly, it was all right. I felt kind of letdown. I was really looking forward to seeing this play – so much so that I practically told my mom I would be her + 1 for this particular show no questions asked – probably because of reviews like this one. There were funny scenes and the use of water as part of the set did add a fun dimension to the play, but for all the hoopla this play received, I wasn’t entirely sold. At least I didn’t fall asleep like my mom did – SHHH! The acting was great, but I don’t think I connected personally with the plot of the play. [Read more…]
And I am so over it.
In the grand scheme of things, I know I shouldn’t be complaining about the weather here in D.C. considering there are other parts of the country that are getting pounded with snow and have freezing temperatures, but I am sooooooo ready for some spring-like weather. We are expected to have a winter storm come our way on Wednesday. Whether that actually happens or not remains to be seen, but it is definitely cold outside and definitely super windy. Even Violet, who loves her walks, cowers and closes her eyes when the wind blows. [Read more…]
Yesterday was a crazy day.
It began waking up at 4am because I was on a 6am train to New York City for work. (For what it’s worth, it was my first time taking the Acela train. Loved it.) I love going to New York, whether if it’s for pleasure or work. I DO NOT love going to New York when it’s rainy, cold, and windy. Terrible idea. I had to stand in line in the freezing cold and windy rain for 40 minutes. Once I got into a cab, the day started getting better. [Read more…]
I discovered Twice, a resale website that buys and sells gently worn, not too old ,second-hand clothes from another blog I read, Peanut Butter Fingers.
I was intrigued by the website because the idea of not going to a consignment store to try and sell clothes that I didn’t want anymore (because of the fit, the style, or because I was just tired of it), but that were still in very good condition was very appealing to me. Perhaps this is what you would call laziness. [Read more…]
1. I am currently reading Mr. Penumbra’s 24 hour bookstore for book club this month. While I ordinarily wouldn’t have gravitated towards this book, I’m glad to have gotten the chance to read it. It’s pretty interesting so far. I have about 100 more pages to read – hopefully I can do it by this Sunday! [Read more…]
This past weekend Tommy and I joined another couple for a weekend away at the Greenbrier, a resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. [Read more…]
