As mentioned in yesterday’s post, I have company this week (tomorrow Leanne and I are both heading for Boston), and this will – I repeat will – interrupt my blogging (and there was much rejoicing). There might not be another post up before I get back on Monday, or, there might be posts every day. Who knows? Anyway, until further notice, expect delays in both directions (I’ve been riding the DC metro too much lately). The following post was supposed to be up yesterday (so for your own convenience, translate every “today” into “yesterday”). There were new shenanigans today (not yesterday), which might, or might not, be posted tomorrow. Please step back for the doors to close.
Leanne arrived ridiculously early (and on time, even though her train was stuck for a while in Connecticut, or Bommdbugbtt as I called it in my 4 am reply). We even managed to find each other in the crowd at Union Station, and deposit her suitcase in daycare (I think it must have been one of those pre-Harvard ones, as it was horribly expensive).
Architecturally and interior-wise, the library couldn’t be better. Imagine the library in Beauty and the Beast (every girl’s childhood fantasy). Add a tablespoon of alcoves with tiny little staircases, and a pinch of real books (with real funny titles – like the Dictionary of Art, Volume 19, “Leather to Macho”). It was almost like coming to heaven.
All in all a very good day (we didn't even get caught doing bogus research!) – tomorrow we’re off to another state!
