National Archives. All last week the National Archives was showing the documentaries that had been nominated for Academy Awards for free. We saw a movie called The Cove, which was excellent. (We went to the Archive’s screening Food Inc. earlier in the week and we liked that too.)
Saturday afternoon, Chuk and I made the short trip to Old Town to watch the St. Patrick Parade down King Street. There were lots of bagpipers and little kid Celtic dancers, who were so freaking cute it was hard to contain myself. For the first time in a long time, it was sunny and warm out so it was great to be outside enjoying the community atmosphere.
historic Christ Church and graveyard. The church had a special pew for the Washington (as in George and Martha) family; it is where Robert E. Lee married Martha Washington's great granddaughter, and it is where Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt and Winston Churchhill worshipped on the national day of prayer in 1942. Most of the graves in the yard dated from the 18th century. I love living in a place with so much history.
we like going to Costco together. We took a long nap in the afternoon and then Sunday night we had a VIP Oscar-watching party (which is what we call it whenever we want to have a party but are too lazy to actually invite our friends over) complete with appetizers and margaritas.
