Weekend Ramblings

It's been such a lovely weekend that my complexion is still glowing!

In fact, the weather was so gorgeous that I am playing hooky tomorrow. Bwah-ha ha ha ha!

Of course, the past couple of days haven't just been about my roaming around wearing an assortment of adorable spring clothing. No-- it's been about my roaming around at various Events of Interest while wearing an assortment of adorable spring clothing.

Friday evening I attended a concert (organized by Greg Glowacki) featuring Stanisław Drzewiecki at the Palladium Theater in St. Petersburg. Despite the moldy old piano, he played lovely and highly edible music: Liszt, Rachmaninoff, Schubert, and Chopin. Not only that, but he had highly luxurious hair, which is a very valuable trait in any musician. Saturday afternoon was the annual Antiquarian Book Fair , which had all sorts of fascinating things, from early pulp and odd memoirs to signed first editions and leather bound volumes that smelled delicious. After that, a stroll over to Haslam's Bookstore to meet an author and purchase a book about circus freaks before engaging in an intoxicating evening of beer sampling.

To-day was an outing to A Corner of England for tea and yummy tidbits such as scones with cream, finger sandwiches, cream puffs, mini-quiches, eclairs, fruit and chocolatey things. After that, a brief visit to the Crawfish Festival at Vinoy Park ensured that I will never have to eat again.

Ever.
