and we read to each other from our books

Monday, September 20, 2010

on friday, i skipped my last two classes.
it was too nice out and there was too many things i wanted to do.

so me and jason walked to the mall!

we saw a feather (actually we saw a million but i didn't think a million picutres of feathers would be very interesting).

jason got a burger and i stole his fries, of course.
then we split a blizzard. of course.

now for the fun part!
we went to chapters on a mission i came up with.
the mission was this:
we each had ten minutes to find a book for the other that looked/sounded interesting.
when the ten minutes was up we met in the center of the store and switched books.
then, we had another ten minutes to skim through the book and find parts that seemed interesting.
then we met again and read them to each other!

this was the book i picked for jason. he read a passage about smelly socks and another that i don't remember.

this is the book jason picked for me, which i actually loved when i was skimming through.
i read a paragraph about a man being picked up by an elephant and another about a man who used to be a really esteemed portrait artist but times were hard and he had to resort to painting portraits of people's pets (hello alliteration!) i think pet portraits are better than people portraits.

so that was friday. saturday was rainy and i bought some pretty fall things.
sunday i went for a hike and napped and went to a flea market and bought the most beautiful plate you have ever seen.
i'll put pictures of those up later.

now that i'm thinking about it, a million pictures of feathers would be very interesting.

love, loove <3

Adorable idea! You have to really know someone to pick out a book for them, so that's actually like a nice little couple-bonding exercise. The cover of that book is beautiful; I would have been tempted to pick it up too!

It sounds like a really lovely afternoon. Besides, it was the last weekend of summer so it was a sort of special occasion anyway :)

That is usually the best way to pick up books!
