the big fat loud crazy apple

we've arrived! well, technically we arrived two weeks ago, bright and early. so far, so good. minus the crazy man who followed us for a block screaming about whites making black people suffer, suffer, SUFFER! let's consider it a very enthusiastic welcome to the neighborhood.

a gigantic happy thanks to klane and angie for letting us stay with them while we're here. they are the best and will be sainted i'm sure. we will at least build them a shrine before we go. mike is handy with things like that.

for the first little bit until i started at martha mike and i wandered around trying not to look like deer in the headlights and perfecting our sly maneuvers to turn around when we realize we had been walking the wrong way for a few blocks. we got pretty good at it. we managed to see a few things that we hadn't before, and my documenting skills are pretty terrible. i only took pictures at the library and museum of natural history, but we'll live.

last week ang and i went and saw memphis. we got student rush tickets and ended up on the front row. ooooooh it was awesome. we were so close we could touch the stage and see the spit fly. during the standing ovation, montego glover looked right into our eyes and smiled and we almost hopped up on stage with the cast to dance our hearts out and belt the final note. which would have been really easy since we are both really tall and our faces were about two feet from their faces. it was awesome. and now, pictures.

memphis! definitely recommend. below, the public library. oh, swoon. that place is what i imagine heaven to be like.

i suppose that's the end for now. i'm really needing a bowl of cereal. up next, life at martha!
