I met up with Milton at Dia:Beacon, which was not very, aah... accessible. There was a Richard Sera piece which I of course enjoyed, an odd plywood construction against a wall that made it look like there was a big hole in the floor, + too much art we weren't allowed to get near. I find that those kinds of museums are most fun when you're allowed to take pictures in them- art about the art is more interesting than the art itself. Is that offensive, or narrow-minded? I guess I'd be annoyed if somebody thought that about my art... but my art isn't in a museum, eh?
After, we went to the Muddy Cup coffee house, which may win the prize for Best Coffee House, ever. Too bad it's half an hour away from my house. They had such a huge selection that I couldn't decide what I wanted, and a neat aesthetic. Throne-like chairs, and a good place to sit + chat quietly for a few hours, which we did.
I took the scenic route through Fahnstock state park back home, but was sad that it was so cloudy. On even just a decent night, you can see the milky way from there, and when the lake is still, it gets reflected in the lake, surrounded by tree-covered hills, + is quite breathtaking. I learned to skip stones there, actually.

I don't know why, but ever since starting college I've become a bit of a neatnick, and that tendency has just accelerated with the past semester. I always make my bed, and clean my room every night before going to sleep. I just can't think when my room is a mess.
Anyway, that weird looking white pillow in front of the doll is actually a "book bag", a cute little bag to keep (you got it!) books in. I put 'Little Women' in there, so I don't have to think about it while I'm not reading it.

After a long night of (mostly) inoffensive shenanigans, Matt, Mike, Dave, Jason Zwick, Allie, Mary + I headed to the diner, for a little late morning nosh. And Matt, being the hooligan he is, looked like he was commiting some kind of intrigue behind that menu.
