A week ago today I flew back home from Pittsburgh where I visited Sunny for a week. If I’d documented everything I did in pictures you’d be bored: I spent a lot of time indoors studying. We did get to go out a few times, though.
This is me outside the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. I love museums of natural history, especially ones with dinosaur skeletons. We also hung out in the rocks and gems exhibit and saw some beautiful jewelry. On a side note, I knitted that hat two years ago. I wish I had more time to knit these days!
These were taken when I walked with Sunny to CMU and then went off to Carnegie Library to study in their very old and beautiful reading room.
On the last night I was there we went to Union Grill for pierogies. Eating pierogies is pretty much a requirement while visiting Pittsburgh. It’s like visiting LA and eating tacos: mandatory and delicious. After Union Grill we were going to walk to the botanical gardens but we were so full that we decided to take a short walk down Forbes and around the Pitt campus. The above picture was from that walk, I think at Schenley Plaza.
Now I’m back and excited for Thanksgiving. How excited? I have to make a screencast for a class that teaches people how to use a social software tool. Mine is going to be about using social bookmarking from the point of view of someone who wants to use it to build a digital repository of Thanksgiving recipes. I think I’m going to try Jing to record it, but I’m open to other suggestions as long as the software has audio capabilities.
