"Art?" "History! It's reputable!"

I celebrated being done with my exams ALL WEEKEND.

Friday night Bryant and I went to Sylvania for Japanese food with Michelle and Matt. Saturday we made a huge breakfast, read magazines at the public library, put in an appearance at the art grad barbecue/mixer, made a lovely dinner, and then ate ice cream while watching a video.

Sunday we rode the Slippery Elm trail 15 miles to North Baltimore, where we got "arctic blasts" at the Daily Queen, a walk-up ice cream place remarkably reminiscent of Zesto.

A fellow biker, a fifth grader, wandered over in a (futile) attempt to avoid the bees besieging him. When I told him we had biked the whole way from BG just for ice cream, his jaw dropped. "What about the Dairy Queen??"

We wrapped up the weekend with a $2 showing of "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," which I really enjoyed. The theme is improbable, but clever, and it's not difficult to watch beautiful people, especially when they actually can act, like Brad and Angelina.

I watched the preview... is it at the Ross right now? Why the recommendation?

it was at the ross. i saw it and it was cute and sweet and really, i walk a fine line between normalicy and being very much like the lead character...

i liked mr and mrs smith too. i thought the sequence with the car chase in the minivan was especially nice. i've always thought brad pitt was a better comic actor than anything, but angelina tends to get on my nerves.
