On the Road

25 Mar

I’m traveling again this weekend, although this time I don’t think I’ll have much time to discover new foods to recreate at home. Well, I will probably try my hand at recreating a mocha frappuccino, which I finished in record speed and will likely get at least one more of this afternoon – caffeine is essential to my survival today. It was an accidental order but ended up being surprisingly good. Where have you been all life? Oh, right, I was too good to order you with your frivolous-sounding name. How wrong I was. A chocolate coffee slurpee? Sign me up.

Conference sessions are taking up most of my day, and I’m spending all non-session-attending time revising and re-revising my presentation, which I give tomorrow morning. Already this morning, I’ve learned about silent-era stag films – including an animated one (see below –  very adult content), on which all the animated studios collaborated. This afternoon I’m going to hear talks about Hank Williams and the Velvet Underground. Best conference ever? I hope these papers will come close to the paper about Madonna’s music videos at CAA four years ago [“no re-entry!” shout out to k 🙂 ]. After my talk Saturday, I hope to hit up the art museum and Kinsey Institute. Then, off to my parents’ house for a day to visit, see my grandma, and stock up at Trader Joe’s!

In lieu of the dispersal of any culinary knowledge, I will leave you with some pictures of the crazy weather I encountered on my drive. Yes, I took these pictures with my Nikon whilst driving. I am very talent. Or reckless. Probably mostly the latter.

    I think you take better photos driving than I do walking & standing. : )
