Nov. 9, 2007
I got to go to this amazing ceramics collection in the Claremont colleges yesterday. There was a man who was a teacher and to help students would buy students work for them to buy clay or live. When he passed away he donated his collection to the colleges. When he passed away he had about 1500 pieces in his collection. They do not have the funds to set it up properly so for now it is all on open shelves and in file cabinet drawers. You are able to pick up and touch everything. I was like a kid in a candy store. It was amazing. The craziest part is some of the artists who's work he bought ended up being really famous in the ceramics world. Awesome time.
I got a killer headache yesterday and ended up in bed early. It was one of those headaches that light, sound, smells everything just hurts. I feel much better today.
I weighed in this morning at 159.4 and was so excited to see the number I weighed in again and this time it was 161.4 so I weighed a few more times and it was 161.4 again all the other times. What a bummer. Awesome part is I am so close to being in the 150's. I cannot wait.
I am off to clean and get ready for a weekend of guests, parties, and football. I sound like a man. Oh well.
