I can't put this down

May 23, 2010

I went to the Met to see the American Woman exhibit (a slight disappointment, but good) and lugged around this giant book so I'd have something to read on the subway. I spent a couple hours in Union Square after, reading and waiting for Whitney to meet me. I can't put it down. I wish it came in volumes, or by chapter, so it'd be easier to carry around.

Whitney and I did some light shopping. Then I had to meet my class in Williamsburg. I honestly with all my heart did not want to go, but I didn't want to be "that girl" or "too cool" to do class activities. It was listed as "optional", but if everyone's going except you, it's kind of not. So I met them there halfway into their trek. One of my teachers was set on getting a drink at 5 in the afternoon, so we found a bar that had free pizza with every drink and had a couple beers.

Friday night was interesting. I met Whitney and Evan for Indian food at a place that is covered in Christmas lights and decorations. When you approach the building, there are four different guys in suits trying to get you to come into their restaurant. They all look the same with the same lights, but Evan said they're all different and owned by four different brothers. I guess it's part of the experience.. getting tugged at from all directions. But. "Top Right".

Then we three went around the hood to go to a bar you need to be on a list for? We waited all night and were at the top of the list, but still, no go. Blah blah blah, here's EB with a douchbaggy glass of beer at the Pretentious Pig. Oh I mean the Bourgeois Pig.
