For those of you keeping track, the student showcase belly dance performance was on Saturday. Photos from the second half of the event can be found here.
You might notice that there's a photo of me with my eyes all done up in that set. I think I figured out the make-up problem. It's not the make-up itself but what I used to remove it - Philosophy's Purity Made Simple face wash. I've worn make-up twice since that first test run, and it's been fine. This does not mean, however, that I'll be wearing make-up on a regular basis. Unless someone wants to come over every morning and put it on for me.
I cooked quinoa for the first time tonight, and it was an interesting experience. I also had a culinary adventure with some swiss chard stems. More on this later, including a photo.
In less than a week, I'll be in Boston. I'm simultaneously excited and wishing I didn't have to go. I think it's mostly the five hours in the center seat on the plane that I'm not looking forward to. Would someone just hurry up and invent a teleporter already? I'm guessing that won't happen between now and Saturday, but I'm going to cross my fingers anyways.
And finally, happy mother's day!
