Great weekend! Not enough time to do it justice, but:
- plumtreeblossom taught me how to make cheesecake on Friday! Om nom nom.
- She had borrowed I Am a Fugitive from a Georgia Chain Gang from me (I haven’t actually read it yet), and wanted to see the movie (same title, minus “Georgia”). Netflix didn’t have it, but Amazon did, and we really enjoyed it!
- And today, after breakfast of bacon and more cheesecake (hey, it’s a virtue to eat leftovers, isn’t it?) we went and saw the Big Apple Circus. We had a great time, despite somebody kicking over plumtreeblossom’s full glass of lemonade. Some of the acts were really spectacular. The most stunning bit for me wasn’t at all flashy, but it was just something that I didn’t realize the human body was capable of. A gymnast started standing, with her left hand on a post/support at roughly chest level in front of her. She lifted herself with just that one hand and arm to a one-handed handstand. I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it. The flashy stuff was lots of fun, too, and they’ve added a porcupine, a capybara (I think), and a pig to their animal act.
Oh, note new userpic — I figured it was about time I had one that reflected my current configuration of facial hair. plumtreeblossom
took it last weekend at the beach.
