The Weekend, So Far

Friday was a two-hour workday (yay!), followed by hanging out with Professor K. We met at the Aerial Tram and rode up to OHSU and back, then went to see the 3D "Alice in Wonderland." Perhaps I'll do a real review of it later, but I can say that I enjoyed it quite a bit. It's more a sequel then a remake of either the original "Alice" or "Through the Looking Glass." The visuals are beautifully done. I don't think the 3D was quite as good as Avatar's, but still well worth it. (And if you have a thing for cute blonde women in full platemail, then there's a special treat in it for you.)

We stopped for Thai food, then drove up to the Lewis & Clark campus and mucked about there for hours. In many ways it seems exactly the same as it did thirty years ago, despite the renovations and additional buildings. We dropped by the Theater, and Joyce B. is still working at the department Admin person. I was quite pleased to see her and chat for a bit. Professor K and I then continued our ambling about and reminiscing. It was great! I'm very pleased that we had a chance to spend the day together.

I took some photos. You can view the images individually, or click here to go to my Flickr photostream.

On Saturday morning, I played Dude Golf by myself (yes, I know; I need a better class of friends). It was such a great day, how could I NOT go? I won't bore you with details, but I did surprisingly well for the first game of the season. I did lose two yellow balls, but found two orange ones, so I consider that a reasonable swap. I look forward to the Golf Season with hopes of improving my game. If you want me to go on in excruciating detail sometime, just ask!
