Well, I’m going to try and get in as much here as I can in the next ten minutes, no, nine minutes. I’m up at 5:30 these days, trying to get some extra work finished. Not sure how much longer I can keep that pace up.
In any case, here’s the update on me: Friday night, headed over to Cam and Melissa’s to watch Capote. There was a slight moment of fear when Cam couldn’t get the English subtitles working, but we got them going. Thank God. I love Philip Seymour Hoffman, but his character in this film, Truman Capote? Mumbles like a mofo. Good film, recommended.
Saturday I had photography class at Ringling Museum. Wait. Before I get to that, I should point out that the class before Saturday’s was on Wednesday, when Louis and I took a field trip out to Siesta Key. Got some great photos there (I think so anyway) and discovered a brand new spot on the beach I’ve never been to before. So that was a lot of fun. Zoom back to Saturday, Ringling Museum centers around the clown and amusement park history that is deeply grained in Sarasota history. The Ringling Circus? Yeah, it’s that Ringling. Sarasota has been their winter home since the 1930s. So there were many exhibits around that. In addition, we (and by we, I mean Cam, Joe, Tori and Louis) saw the Ca’ d’Zan (“House of John”), a waterfront mansion owned by John and Mabel Ringling, and, stupendously, only lived in for three years. But it’s gorgeous, and it seems like they brought the entire thing over on a boat from Italy.
Oh.. time is up. Pictures, hopefully tomorrow. Bedtime!
