In an attempt to taunt a couple of my British readers (and maybe a couple of Canadian ones), who are still dealing with snow, I feel that I must mention that I have officially stowed my windshield ice scraper in the trunk of my car, and have pulled out the sunshade. :P

It was a lovely day today, much too pretty to be working, but oh, well... I decided on my break to take a walk around the building, feel like I was getting some exercise for a change. I passed a younger man who was washing the windows, who stopped me with the comment, "Hey, what's going on? You're like the fourth person who has passed me, just walking. Is everyone bored in there?"

"Well, it's lovely out--why wouldn't I want to be out in it? Besides, I thought it might be a good idea to get a bit of exercise," I said, patting my belly.

The man looked at me and then said the nicest thing anyone's said to me in a while. "Girl, what are doing?" he said. "You don't need to change anything!" Well, of course I know exactly how much weight I need to lose and it is this: a lot. More than I'm willing to say on teh intarnets. But it was nice to hear, anyways. A bit of a flirt now and then is always good for the ego...

I went to Richmond to my alma mater yesterday, to the opening of the 2008 Student Art Show. Several of my classmates are still there, and it was good to see them and a few of my favorite professors again. Everyone said they missed me, which I suppose is true--it must be very quiet now that I'm gone... :) While I was there, I finally turned in my final artwork for the independent study that seemingly would never end. I still have to go and "present" it on Friday at the Undergraduate Presentation. I'm still not exactly sure what that is, but it seems that I will stand for two hours beside my project and answer any questions that arise from those who come by to view it. (The project, btw, is on illuminated manuscripts of 8th to 10th century Britain, which particularly interest me, but probably seem boring to most anyone else...) But hey, it gets me out of work for a few hours, so I'm not gonna complain too much...

Hahaha! You have no idea how fast I had to run to fetch my camera before the snow melted. Embra is just strange that way.

Love the photos!
