Spring Break - Friday

As luck would have it, ATL was off from work on Friday so the three of us took an excursion too see the origami exhibit at the Japanese-American Museum: ATL is very into origami:
That stuff was amazing. No pictures allowed which I thought very silly, it's paper, but copyrights or something, so no shots. One section had shapes like this: Then we lunched across the street at Senor Fish:Senor Fish was where I had my very first fish taco ever, when I was in college and it was, sadly, not as good as I remember. But the vibe was the same and it was a great walk down memory lane:Then we went across the next street to see The Hunger Games. I know, I know, it came out last week. But I am not so in love with any book-film adaptation that I want to sit in a theater with a bunch of screaming teenagers. So I didn't. And it was much better that way, I assure you.My opinion of the movie is this; very well done, though they were clearly expecting the audience to have read the book before they went and if I hadn't I would have been lost. There were some details that were excluded that I thought should have been INcluded for plot clarity with not a lot of time added. Further development of Haymitch for one, would have clarified the scenes when we were not immursed in The Games. Minor perhaps, but I would have liked to see it.
There are three more movies to go though, so they may do it later.

This is me and that was a great Spring Break.
