Oh wait. Occupied :(
Guess I'll have to make other plans for lunch...
On my way to campus this morning, I noticed a tree that is already covered in pale pink flowers! It seems like a pretty early sign of spring, even here. But it made me so happy to see it! Spring always seemed to be fairly nonexistent when I lived up north, but here it's one of my favorite seasons. I can't wait till the magnolias and paperwhites start blooming. It won't be long!
In hopes of early spring, I've really been into the florals lately.

This is what I wore yesterday. I switched to my black tights when I went to the Shakespeare production with my students because they're warmer. Sorry for the weird lighting, I took these when it was already dark outside.
Can I just say I love these shoes? They make me four inches taller! I'm almost as tall as the Mr. when I wear them.
I'm also a fan of this hairstyle. Perfect for Fridays, when I feel too lazy to try very hard.
The production of A Midsummer Night's Dream was pretty solid. It's a play that is very near and dear to my heart because I played the role of Hermia in a production of it when I was a senior in high school. The actors in this production were quite good, but they went for a 1940s theme with the costumes of the mortals. The fairies were wearing a hodgepodge of costumes, including track pants, leather vests, and jersey skirts. The fairies also performed this weird butt-shaking hip-hop dance in the second act. I'm all for creative reinterpretations, but in spite of these updates to the play, they still used the original Shakespearean lines. I thought it would have been more effective if they would have updates the script with more modern English if they were going to update everything else about it. K said it would be neat to reinterpret Athens in the play to Athens, Georgia, and do an Old South-style production of it, script and all. Hm.
"Lysander, I do declare..."
It would certainly be interesting.
