    The highlights of the week were Saturday's visit to the Detroit Zoo and our trip to Oakland University on Sunday. When I left the house Saturday morning I thought we were going to the credit union and then coming straight back home. As the only thing on my agenda besides the banking was laundry, and knowing the zoo was only open for another two hours, I agreed to go. The trip itself was nice although most of the animals were hiding, presumably in their warmer indoor habitats. I was quite cold during our walk as I had only my hoodie, not my winter coat. The guanacos were the only animals I noticed that were outside and moving around. I saw a large flock of Flamingos near their usual location but they were inside an interior pen and not spread out as usual. The camels, on the other hand, looked perfectly content laying on the grass in the sun.

    Sunday's Composers' Concert lasted just sixteen minutes and all sixteen were very good. Four pieces were performed, three written by Ian Lester (who used to be in the FCB with [livejournal.com profile] jebra and the remaining piece by Joshua Bryzelak, who wrote a choral piece based on the poem Without the Night which concerns the negative effects that technology and society have on nature. It was interesting both because I could make out the words and because they made sense to me. I tend to hate all vocal pieces but this one was an exception.

    All three of Ian's pieces were excellent but not being a musician let alone a composer, I cannot even begin to tell you why. After the concert we walked around OU's campus playing Ingress, discovered their art gallery and walked through the current exhibit before resuming our game. I was hungry by then so we went to Burgrz for burgers, then to Trader Joes for groceries, to work to drop off some of our purchases. While at the office I wove in the ends on the most recently completed cat beds and had a photo taken of the collection for my records. Then it was time to go home and do my nightly chores, ride my exercise bike, and get into the shower.

    Monday was work followed by laundry & exercise, Tuesday was work followed by a walk at park closest to the office, and today I'm back at work and struggling to stay awake.

    Thank you to everyone who helped me celebrate my birthday. Getting ready for the trip to Indianapolis was exhausting and it's a good thing I wasn't the driver as I slept almost all of the way there. I also slept a lot while we were at the con — it's a nice hotel but our function space was crowded and *loud.* I think the longest I lasted in the main or side rooms was 15 minutes. After that it was either retreat to the hallway or to our room.

    On Sunday, before heading home we went to Noblesville to meet up with our favorite harpist and have coffee with her. Then we stopped at my brother- and sister-in-law's house to have an early dinner with them. We got home around midnight, I think. And then stayed up to unpack and reassure the cats we were back where they think we belong. I arranged for us to take Monday off, which was good as I was a zombie all day. Although I did accidentally discover the fastest method of getting [livejournal.com profile] jebra out of bed — ask him what time it is and then ask him when the rental car was due back at Enterprise (in this case, the two numbers being the same).

    Wow was I ever wrong about the title of that documentary
    I was just scrolling through the online tv guide and took a look at viceland just in case one of the shows I was curious about is on at this ungodly hour. None are, but I did discover that movie I mentioned the other day. It's called The House I Live in and the online listing reads "Eugene Jarecki, David Simon (2012) The death of his housekeeper's son inspires filmmaker Eugene Jarecki to add up the true cost of America's losing was on drugs." It's an extremely interesting film and I recommend seeing it.
