Spring Already Feeling Like Summer

I helped a friend dye Easter eggs yesterday. Photo by Pierre.

It hit 90 degrees today. The sky was clear and blue. I'm already looking forward to summer. I really hope that I get summer half-day Fridays.

We went to the Reagan Library today. It was a pretty user-friendly place. Not much propaganda. Other than some pictures of Reagan with Gorbachev and a piece of the Berlin Wall, there wasn't much on policy and ideology. There was an exhibit on Nancy's clothes. Clips from some of his movies. A case of his belt buckles. A re-creation of the Oval Office. The coolest thing was his Air Force One. We walked through it and I was surprised by how dumpy and small it was. It must've been pretty sweet in the 80s, but now it's like the crappy Southwest plane you get on the LAX-SFO route.

Last night we went to see Horton Hears a Who, which was extremely bad. Don't go unless you have kids who really want to see it. If I'd been watching on video, I would've stopped midway and sent it back to Netflix. This is a bad time of year for movies. I don't think anything good comes out for another month or two.

I'm bummed it's Monday tomorrow. At least the days are getting longer.

You would think with Steve Carrel, Jim Carrey and Carol Burnett the comedy factor would have been higher, but no, I agree with you completely on that one. I did see Penelope and Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day and was pleased with both of them.

I've been curious about visiting that Reagan library for awhile now - do they sell Jelly Beans?
