It’s like a vacation, but no, I live here

A few new pictures up over at Flickr.

Last night, I went to see Little Miss Sunshine (for the second time) with my mom at the Bijou Art Cinema. The cinema is a Spanish mission-style building that has its own lovely courtyard and a 19-pound, 20-year-old cat named Boo. Two adult tickets: $10. They served organic popcorn and Pepsi products (alongside a bevy of good tea and fruit juice options) at prices under the theater standard (2 large drinks and a large popcorn: $7). The film was shown on a smallish-sized screen (Lawrence folks: about the size, or maybe a bit larger, than the small theater at Liberty Hall) in what looked to be an old auditorium, which had a (closed) balcony. The sound and picture were great. After the film, they took the popcorn buckets to recycle the cardboard. The theater sells 10-ticket passes for $40.

I love my new town.

P.S. I have Internet at home now. Woo!

    I thought of you immediately upon entering the theater, and again as every good thing happened. Particularly the ginormous cat.

  9. kepkanation says:

    Thanks! I like that one, too. Taken out a truck window, even!

  10. kepkanation says:

    Are people crazy? Do they not know about the food and the good company?

    Congrats on the pot scrubber, at least! I found a craft center on campus — I think I’m going to take a knitting class this fall. Whee!

    And thank you for the pretty birthday card!
