Pie!


Jenn's birthday was yesterday (Sunday), and I figured she'd know best what kind of birthday cake she wanted, so we went to Fortunato Brothers (a local Italian sweet shop we like--they made our wedding cake) and she picked out this fruit tart. It was delicious. The glazed fruit was sweet and perfect, and the tart part was creamy and delicious. A fine birthday cake, pie, tart, or what have you.

Birthday season seems to be upon us, or at least upon those I know. In rapid succession, I've wished my mom, dad, and Jenn happy birthdays, my sister's is coming up soon, and then mine isn't far behind. Birthdays are fun.

It was a rainy weekend, but we had a good time. On Saturday night I took Jenn to a restaurant in the neighborhood called Dressler, which was quite good. Then on Sunday we went to the International Center for Photography (cool cats call it ICP) to check out the work of Weegee, Atta Kim, and Marianne Brandt. It was all very interesting.

I think I liked the Weegee the best. He was famous for journalistic photos of crime scenes. The Atta Kim exhibit was experimental and cool. Jenn's favorite photo (and possibly my favorite as well) was a timed exposure of a block of ice melting. It seems pretty simple, but the result was quite fascinating. Marianne Brandt is best known as the first woman to be admitted to the Bahaus Metal Workshop, but she also made photomontages that depicted political and cultural events. They were very interesting.

I also liked the museum's water fountain. The button was hard to press in, but the water was cold and refreshing. Now I've got to get to work, because it's Monday morning, 9:00 a.m., and I haven't even showered yet. And I'm off!

Thanks, Seth. And thanks, honey, for a fantastic birthday weekend. I can't think of anyone else I'd rather spend it with!
