Weekend at a glance: the arts #41

It used to be that every day of the weekend had to be chuck filled with activities. Now I’m simply too tired, and over, all of that. The highlight of my Friday nights have been a mindless number of Say Yes to the Dress episodes. Oh, and a pizza. Mmmm! Saturday, I felt like staying […]
