Last night I had dinner with Artsy Friend and took her to a movie screening with me. I was there to review the film for a magazine I write for, so we got to sit in the reserved press row. Isn't that crazy?

This was the first time I had seen her since she got back from Florence just a week or so ago. She brought me back a bookmark from the Uffizi, one that has Eve from Lucas Cranach the Elder's painting on it. I had bought myself the same one when I visited Florence last year, but while walking to work in Venice, reading a book, it slipped out and I lost it. I was very upset. I didn't think I'd ever be able to replace it, obviously, but she brought one back for me! :)

Tomorrow I fly to New York and won't be alone anymore. Yay. And when I get back and am alone for a week or two, I really need to hang out with people. Sitting in the apartment depresses me and makes me a little crazy. Artsy Friend said to definitely call her, and I had to cancel on movie night with Book Club Friend two nights ago because I was sick, so I owe her a rain check!
