The Weekend...So Far

Today? Today was brilliant. You see, Beth and I got to have lunch with the famous bmh, of freshbaked fame, and her sister! How cool is that? Very.

Despite the fact that it was absolutely pouring, Beth and I drove into the District early and hit the National Gallery of Art to catch a Rembrandt exhibit as well as the work of Edward Ruscha. Both turned out to be wonderful but I was especially fond of Ruscha's stuff.

12am by Edward Ruscha

After the exhibit? Off to a late lunch. bmh and her sister put up with our dorkdom for a couple of hours, despite their busy schedules, and I truly enjoyed the chance to meet them. There was talk of the Pope, the President, Jesus, boxes, glowing religious icons and ascots. Clearly, we were trying to squeeze a lot of stuff into a short amount of time. It was a wonderful.

Pictures will be on their way soon...right now? Bed.

Talk of glowing religious icons is always good. Was it a Jesus nightlight in this case?

Am I totally missing something, like some deep symbolism why the clock doesn't actually say 12am?
