Wicked on Broadway!!!!

The musical Wicked offers a lottery two and a half hours before each performance in which they offer 25 front-row tickets for the evening's performance for $26.25 (tickets in this section go for more than $150 each). I have thrown my name in the hat maybe five times and never won, but on Friday we got to attend the most magical show that I have ever seen. Some combination of emerald eyes and blouses brought Crystal and I luck. If you find yourself in the city, make every effort to go...it is an absolute treat.

Brett and Ameara

Last week I went to Minneapolis to visit my dear friends whom I met whilst at the University of Texas. We had a great time eating, drinking, shopping, playing Tetris, and enjoying the beautiful weather outside. It is actually already starting to get a little chilly up there.

The Getty

Kevin and I visited the Getty Center in late July. I highly recommend the architecture tour; it really gave me a better appreciation of the (already) beautiful museum. One tidbit: all of the tiles are some multiple or fraction of 30", the average length of an adult arm. This human proportion was chosen to keep the space from being overwhelming to visitors. As per usual, I am a below average human being.

San Antonio Visit

In August I got to visit my uncle Patrick and his lovely new wife, Nastasya. I had fun with her kids at Chuck E. Cheese, but my favorite was watching Zach and Mackenzie feed the stray kittens in the neighborhood.
