Friday shenanigans

I think I mentioned this already, but I'm taking a photography class every Sunday. Well, one of our homework assignments is to photograph someone in front of a window. Seems simple enough, but being forced to be in "manual mode" makes things a little more difficult. I have to make sure that the shutter speed, iso, and f-stop are all balanced and takes a picture that's not too dark or too light. Anyway, here's the photo:

Listen, it's certainly not the greatest photo in the world (far from it), but I'm just sharing the process, so shut the hell up.

After our "photoshoot" (which lasted a whole five minutes), Al and I watched the CNN coverage of the tsunami and earthquake situation in Japan. Scary stuff. I bow down to nature.

Then I met up with my (fabulous!) friend Melisa for a healthy nosh at Whole Foods at Union Square...

...and then a movie. We saw Red Riding Hood.

If you haven't seen the preview yet, here it is:

I was pleasantly surprised. I thought it would be the worst movie ever, but it was actually damned entertaining. Well...honestly I can't even tell if movies are good or bad anymore. I've seen such crap lately that when I finally see something that's remotely interesting or entertaining, I'm THRILLED. What I was not thrilled about, however, were the teenagers seated to my left who after carelessly spilling nacho cheese goo on Melisa's shoe while violently pushing their way to their seat continued to talk and ruffle wrappers and comment on every scene in the film. And giggled when there was anything remotely sexual happening. ANNOYING. CLUELESS. Oh and one chick got up like ten times to go to bathroom. If she'd gotten up one more time, Melisa would have kicked her ass.


We'll be alright.


Oh. I almost forgot! Melisa purchased her ticket before I bought mine, so while she made her way upstairs to save a seat for us,  I waited in line to get my ticket. By the time I got to the ticket booth, the movie was sold out!  Melisa texted me in that moment and was like, "If the movie's sold out, just buy a ticket for any other flick and sneak in." So...that's what I did.

Shenanigans! Woo-hoo!

Tomorrow I'm meeting up with my friend Njeri for our weekly lunch date at Bonobo's and then I'm escorting her to the Apple store to help her purchase a brand new iPhone 4. I approve!
