I got up and greeted the vet to get Stinky dewormed (get a vet who makes house calls if you can, especially if you have hard-to-round-up kitties). Then we met my parents for lunch at South Congress Cafe, admired their new car, and took them to see Eric's art at End of an Ear (which will come down Thursday morning, so you should go tomorrow if you haven't seen it yet but want to). On the way there, I came within a yard of running over a guy who walked out in front of my car in the middle of Oltorf. Jackass. I wish people wouldn't try to make me kill them, because if I accidentally killed someone I would then have to kill myself, and I would be totally pissed off about that.
After all that, I drove back home to drop Eric off, went back down to South Lamar for a sassy haircut, and then went back home again to get Eric and the bikes, which we rode down to the Ransom Center to see Binh Danh talk about his chlorophyll prints on leaves. The lecture was a little droning, and although the guy was slightly charming and didn't come off as anything close to pompous, you could tell by the way he spoke of his "body of work" that he'd spent too much time in art school. Maybe I was disappointed because I was much more interested in the technical than the historical or conceptual aspects? Anyway, I'm glad we went because Dan and I are inspired to try something similar this summer.
Afterwards, we went to Madam Mam's for dinner and took a walk down the Drag so I could give my distended, Thai-stuffed belly a chance to subside before the long, fun bike ride home.
Now I'm drinking a Liberty Ale and checking on the statewide primary race results.
I feel like that's kind of a lot to pack into 12 hours for someone as sluggish as I am.
Also, according to the UPS tracking site, my barometer watch is all the way up in Secaucus, NJ. Come on, barometer watch!
