Eric’s leaving in a week to attend graduate school in Colorado. On Saturday, he and his roommates, Paula and Joey, held a going-away party for him. Paula’s leaving too to teach English in France; I’m envious of her, as I’d love to be able to live in France for an extended period of time!
In the afternoon, Rae and I went to Culture Cache, where they were holding an anti-war art exhibition entitled, Get Your War Off. “In response to the United States Government’s ‘War On Iraq’, twenty artists from 5 states have joined forces to exhibit new works relating directly to recent U.S. military action in the Middle East.” We especially liked the Freedom Fryes piece by Charles Glaubitz.
Met a combination of new and old people at the party this evening. The Stanford contigent was there, represented by Jeremy H., Grant, Carolyn, and Jeremy. I saw Carolyn and Jeremy (along with Eric) last week at Vienna’s performance opening for Shawn Colvin at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga. I haven’t seen Jeremey H. in awhile, and it’s been even longer since I last saw Grant (Ultimate Frisbee match?). Of the new people that I met, I spoke at length with Glendy, My Thuc, Dave, David, Brian, Kim, Paula, Joey, Pete, and Lucia. The dog that graces the top of this journal entry is Pete’s dog, Paddington. Cute but deadly if he doesn’t like you!
