A mid-November evening's enjoyment.

My day was wiled away with reading, but my evening was rather remarkable.

It began at 5. I don't really know what's technically considered "evening," but that's where mine began.

A friend picked me up at the Institute building and we went to her house and made cookies. It was a rather fun time just hanging out. We didn't really do much cooking, though. The goods were the pull-apart kind. We made white chocolate macademia nut and these nifty cookies with teensy peanut-butter cups on top. On a completely unrelated note, she has the coolest little dog. It's an adorable little chihuahua named either Mini or Minnie. I asked which way it was and my friend told me it was whichever I wanted.

When our cookies were done, she took me over to my dad's girlfriend's house. Anne (my dad's girlfriend) and I went to see A Midsummer Night's Dream at her son's high school. He's on the stage crew.

It was actually a totally awesome performance. It was in the school's outside amphitheater and they "updated" the setting, taking it from Ancient Greece to the '60s. They left the dialogue in its original form, though, with a few added one-liners. And it was absolutely hilarious. Puck was awesome. Oberon was awesome. Bottom was awesome. The fairies were awesome. The lovers were awesome. Hermia's dad was awesome. It was just awesome, okay? I think they stuck their 10-minute intermission in a really weird place, though. It's been a while since I read it, but as near as I can tell the intermission was between Acts IV and V. The play was almost over. The intermission was really fun, though. One of the cast members was trying to sell wooden peace sign necklaces that he had carved. Their major selling point seemed to be that they "smelled like earth." They were actually pretty nifty and only $1. I definitely got one.

It was rather an enjoyable evening.
