Late this afternoon I moseyed over to my brother's house and spent an hour or so potting up flowers for centerpieces for his wedding to Maurie in two (and a half) weeks, then picked up Worthy Opponent and went to Seattle Center to see the Bumbershoot Art Exhibit. As I expected, Ben Rubin's show beat the others by a mile. The "interactive poetry" exhibit was as unappealing as I always find poetry when not on paper or being spoken by its author, and the mixed bag of the "Final Judgment" group exhibit brought down the excellent 3-D artwork inside (plus the insipid commentary on the cards "explaining" how the various works related to the theme made me want to run from the room screaming). After we left, we were supposed to catch Le Roi et le Oiseau at the Grand Illusion, but I guess since it's part of the childish film festival everyone who might want to see it would expect to be in bed at 9. The bubble tea, banana fritters, and Boggle that we enjoyed at the Pochi Tea Station were pleasant anyway, and we considered the evening very well spent.
