My weekend was great, everybody! So great I forgot to take any pictures!
(Obviously I did not take that one! Source here).I was in Northampton, Massachusetts, at Smith College, visiting A, who I've known since we were thirteen or so, and her roommate S (the photo above is a vintage postcard of their dorm back in the day). I arrived Friday night just in time to catch a frozen-yogurt-and-bookstore excursion, where I found sweet vintage postcards of local (and not-so-local) sights, plus a beautiful old Modern Library edition of The Enormous Room that looked a little something like this:
Sunday we did some pretty unremarkable shopping and wandering...and then it started torrentially pouring just as I hopped in the car to drive eastward, and I-90 was partially flooding. But now I know I can drive successfully through a monsoon, which? Cool.
Andrew Jackson Jihad turned out, in fact, to be playing TT the Bear's Place, a fact which did nothing to impair the show's awesomeness. AJJ shows are always more like singalongs, group therapy, giant festivities of (fun!) catharsis, than they are events where a performer attempts to entertain a crowd. This was no exception, nor would any of us have wanted it to be, I think.
Great times. Coming up soon: a rumination on the nature of business casual (I GOT A REAL OFFICE JOB GUYS), some outfit photos with that red dress I finally finished remaking, and some cheeky peeks into the archives (ie, What I Do All Day aside from the soon-to-commence office job). Stay tuned!
