In the Next Room

This weekend was amazing! I got to combine almost all of my favorite things into one weekend! First off, Scott and I went to see the Impressionist exhibition at the Speed Art Museum. Then of course, we finished off the day with a spot of supper! He also surprised me with some early Valentine's Day presents. 

First off, he got me the exploding Van Gogh/TARDIS Dr. Who poster. For a nerd like me, I was so excited because I was having trouble selecting a favorite Who poster. The Van Gogh episode was one of my favorites because I got to combine my love of art with my love of Dr. Who! So it was basically perfect and now adorned above my bedpost. ALSO! He got me a heart of the ocean necklace! I'm also a Titanic nerd and know almost every word to the movie and cry every time I watch it but also I laugh when Fabrizio yells, "BASTARDO!" but basically I've wanted this necklace since I was a little girl and now I can hold onto it forever because, "A woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets!" 

On top of all that wonderful nerdiness, he burned me the sixth season of Dr. Who and now I'm all caught up and going through withdrawals. 

On Friday, Leslie and I went to go see In the Next Room (or The Vibrator Play) at Actor's Theatre. The set and costumes were beautifully Victorian and overall I really enjoyed it--except Leslie and I agreed the ending was a bit rushed and made it seem that hysteria was only sexual repression. In reality, women did suffer from mental disorders that weren't simply cured by "fluid releases" from the womb.

Now that the weekend's all but passed, I'm going to endeavor to finish my homework/responsibilities and for heaven's sake work on that darn thesis. But in other news, I'm all set for Valentine's Day! Tune in to see what's inside come Tuesday...
