End of the Weekend

Can you believe that my shoes are still wet from Friday? Neither can I. I think I'll put them outside today and see if that helps. The real problem is the humidity. Today it's not so bad, but all weekend with the impending rain it was a lot like walking through soup. 

The remainder of the weekend was alright. JD is in the final stretch before the bar exam so he doesn't have a lot of free time and cannot participate in fun weekend activities like day drinking or being outside. After brunch on Saturday he retreated to his library cave at school and reemerged around 7pm. But in a few weeks he will have all of the free time in the world and we will go on a fun little vacation to a place where it's probably even hotter and more humid than New York, New Orleans. Though, they're always wearing jackets on True Blood so it's hard to tell. I never know what season it's supposed to be on that show, or what's going on really. I started watching a few seasons in, the one with the witches, and have never really understood why they don't just move out of this town if it's causing everyone so much trouble and heartache. That would make sense, right? Clearly, I'm missing something. But that's okay.

So Saturday evening we went to see one of my favorite improv shows at UCB, Grandma's Ashes with friends and it was the funniest show I've seen them do. I laughed to hard at one point, the Meth Camp scene, that I couldn't breathe. I should explain. They get their ideas from secrets that the audience members have written down on little white scraps of paper and dropped in a bucket in the center of the room. One of the secrets was something along the lines of: a group of friends brought meth with them to church camp and one of them got caught. The rest of them stayed up all night dancing in the cabin while a girl in a wheelchair they were sharing the cabin with cried herself to sleep. Yes, it is a horrible secret, but the scene they created from it was hilarious. It mostly involved everyone jumping up and down, dancing, and occasionally knocking Abra out of her chair. This is probably one of those things that you needed to see. Writing it out just makes it sound uncomfortable, but I promise you it was not. The show also had one of the best endings I have ever seen. They managed to justify every single character, including why the girl from meth camp ended up in a wheelchair. She was shot by a detective after being caught in the illegal soda ring. Yup. 

Sunday afternoon I did a makeup class since I missed my class when I was away in Maryland for the fourth. It did not go well. JD spent the day studying in the library. And that was that. Once again, I failed to take any pictures aside from of my food and drinks, which I already posted on Saturday. 

This summer seems like it's going by way too quickly.
