1. This turned out to be an unexpectedly busy weekend. Friday, after spending the morning at work, and the afternoon hanging garland, lights, and decorations for a client, a friend of mine and I went out for a night on the town. While I did not drink myself into oblivion as I have done the past couple of times a night out has happened, I did stay out til four in the morning.
2. Saturday, after sleeping in til almost eleven, I had a salon day. The same friend I went out with recently told me that I looked “ancient” in bright light because the white hairs that keep mulitplying across my head are all the more obvious then. So, guess what, I don’t have any white hair now. (I’ll grow old gracefully as soon as I am ready, thank you very much.)
3. Sunday, I went to Atlanta to see two exhibits–Dialog in the Dark and The Bodies Exhibit. Now I have seen the Bodies before…and expected it to be somewhat gory, but it wasn’t. It’s an amazing and very interesting look at real preserved human bodies. If you ever get a chance, go see it. It’s fascinating how many bits and parts we are made of. Dialog in the Dark was an hour long look at everyday life for a blind person. In total darkness, myself and seven others had to explore a park, cross a street, make purchases at a bar, grocery shop, and board a boat. Really gives you an appreciation for your sense of sight, and makes you marvel at what blind people go through. And our tour guide, herself visually impaired, sounded exactly like Wanda Sykes.
4. The Thanksgiving countdown is nearing zero. I’ll be making the trek up to the mountains of West Virginia in a few days and have a full schedule of people to see and things to do. I get to meet (I hope) my middle brother’s new girlfriend. I’ve only met one other girl he has dated, and she was about as refined as a dump truck, so I’m anxious to see what the new gal is like. Looking forward to some good food! (And someone best have me a pecan pie at the ready.)
