One way streets are so over-rated

Picture it. Riverside. 2010.* A trio of ladies made their way to Riverside, California, to see my best friend in Pirates of Penzance. The exact details of the drive are irrelevant except to say google's directions were completely misguided, and we might have gotten a little lost...the performance itself was extremely enjoyable, and afterwards we made our way down the hill, to the car, and began what I thought was going to be a relatively easy task of getting to the freeway. Not! Might I remind the reader, there were three of us in the car, and we could not for the life of us figure out how in the world to exit the premises of Riverside City College. Not only was the signage nonexistent, but various parts of the campus were under construction making our departure even more challenging. Suffice it to say I made one or two wrong turns, and the only way to get out...wait for it...was to drive the wrong way on a one way street! I've never done that in my life! Considering it was a single lane road, it's a good thing no one was coming toward me because I had no where to go. So I kind of, sort of broke the law on a college campus, with witnesses, but at least I can say we found the fairly short order.

*Reference to The Golden Girls. Sophia anyone?!

For all the tea in China

My dear friend Antoinette gave me a tea party in honor of my 27 years of life. It was a lovely afternoon of delicious food, delightful company, and memories to last a lifetime. Here are some photos from this lovely afternoon.
