I had to work late Friday, so I stayed in the city & met my crew in the Mission before we trekked down to Truong's art show at SOMArts. It was spectacular--both Truong's work and that of his fellow artist, Peter Max Lawrence:
At War: showing at SOMArts through 2/29
I highly recommend you check it out!

After the show, we had a delicious Thai feast at Ozone before heading back across the Bay Bridge. I was super excited to crawl into bed with my book . . . I'm reading The Help and I can't put it down! I need some book suggestions, cause at this point, I don't think anything is going to live up to The Help. It's so good!
I got to be a little bit lazy on Saturday, which was nice. The weather was beautiful here, so when Matt went to The Bone Room in Berkeley, I opted to stay home and go for a short run instead. He did bring me back this extremely strange/slightly creepy souvenir:
headless, limbless pregnant "woman" with removable belly keychain
As for Superbowl Sunday, it was really nice albeit a bit anticlimactic. Heather and Serkan were gonna come over for homemade pizzas, beer, & football, but they (+ Rowan!) were sick, and Matt was in bed half the day recovering from a pretty fierce cold, which left me on the couch alone with these things:
Blue Moon & sesame sticks
Eventually I got restless and woke Matt up--we ordered pizza and he kindly watched the 4th quarter with me, despite his utter disinterest in football. Truth be told, I watched more for the cultural experience than for any real concern over the outcome. That last NY touchdown was pretty great, although I was eager to switch to Super Mario Bros. 3 on the wii as soon as the final score was called. :)
Hope your weekends were all lovely & full of either fun or rest. And here's to hating Monday a little bit less!
