Enjoying the views.

July 29, 2008


We went to see Wall-e tonight, and it turns out that it is better if you’ve seen Hello, Dolly! first!  Go figure. I highly recommend both movies!  Afterwards we didn’t have anything we really needed to buy, but I wasn’t ready to go home just yet.  We walked around downtown Lincoln a little bit.  Here are some things we saw:

I love walking in alleys.  As long as you don’t get mugged, you see the most interesting things, like these stairs.

I need those stairs.

Here’s my obligatory art shot.  I’m sure no one has ever taken a picture like this! Don’t bother fact-checking that.

Wavy, eh?

Lastly, we stopped to use the restrooms at the downtown community college and judged the art students below.  Lloyd was very harsh, but I was like Paula Abduhl. (But with worse nails and less crazy.)

That guy in the middle just sat there the whole time.

    Do people get mugged in Lincoln? In broad daylight?

    Those stairs say “Telephone Exchange”. Maybe that whole building is like a giant Tardis! (Thanks a LOT for getting me watching another TV show, by the way.)

    You’re welcome. 🙂

    Kitt, I think it could happen. Good thing we have Batman!

    What was Lloyd harsh about, the quality of their work?


  5. Peggy Said on:

    That 1st picture looks awful familiar … are you sure you werent’ in Venice last night …



  6. Deborah Said on:

    I had mint green pants (not rolled at the bottom because they were already very narrow); mint green, pink and white shirt; and mint green suspenders. And white sandle/shoes with no socks. I got my school picture taken in that. Too bad they couldn’t get the shoes in the picture.

      I could never dress that fashionably -- stupid hand-me-downs…


    • Beth Said on:

      Mine was a pair of peach pants, pinch-rolled at the bottom, with mint green socks, mint green short sleeve sweater, and a “belt”, which was really a long length of finished narrow fabric (light yellow, mint green and peach making some sort of Venice scene) that I tied it in a bow a little left of center so the two ends of the tie would hang down my left leg.
      I wore it with some rockin’ white jazz shoes.
