Rocktober 16th - High School Orchestra practice @ posh private school

Ok...maybe this one is kind of a stretch. But stay with me on this one.

Last night Teen Heartthrob and I went to visit our friend who works at a boarding school for the ultra rich. She invited us for dinner and a walk around the campus. Being a public school aficionado, I had never been exposed to the lives of the rich, famous and well-bred. This campus was amazing. Wouldn't even compare to my high school with it's florescent lighting, linoleum floors and stained glass windowless-library. Thinking back to my high school after last night, I can't help but think I must've grown up in a 3rd or at least 2nd world country. Poor unfortunate me.

After a lovely dinner of braised carrots with savory rice and some chocolate cake, we made our way over to the Field Looking Over the River. Do all private schools have these? It was dark, so we couldn't necessarily see anything, but we knew it was there. The three of us sat down in comfy chairs and proceeded to contemplate religion, human nature and relationships.


In the background, we listened to the sounds of the Boarding School Orchestra. The BSO played such hits as Rhapsody in Blue, a very hearty rendition of Stars and Stripes Forever, as well as other tunes I can't quite recall. But they were cranking them out. And they were good. And a perfect accompaniment to the evening sky and talks with great friends.

After the Boarding School experience, we went to the grocery store. Since I don't get to make it to the store very often, I was pretty excited for this event. I went in for one thing and ended up buying over $30 worth of food. It's okay, considering I haven't been grocery shopping in over a month. I tend to get the same things. I always have nacho materials, pancake materials, and a little bit of fresh fruit and veggies. This trips pick was a golden delicious apple and some green beans, which I plan to eat tonight alongside some curried salmon. Yum!

Totally great night. I'm so excited it's getting colder and I can put my sweaters and jackets to work. They've been so bored all summer!!
