To say that I had fun at our first ever letterpress class this weekend would be a devastating understatement. I was positively giddy the entire time. I could have spent hours at the Idaho Poster and Letterpress studio searching every drawer and fingering all of the gorgeous type. But since our time was limited, I pulled a few cards and then busied myself with picture taking and question asking. Good luck getting me to shut-up about letterpress from here on out.

But that wasn't all that made our weekend so fantastic. We also went to see Ira Glass speak at BSU! I figured seeing this show was as close as I was going to get to having him over for dinner. Of course I loved every second and wish I had it all on tape so that I could listen to the entire thing again. If he is on his way to your town, I would highly recommend attending. And if you do, let's chat about what it is like to tell people about your weekend plans. For example, I had this conversation several times in the last two weeks:

"Any plans for the weekend?"
"Yeah! We're going to see Ira Glass!"
"Blink...blink. To see what?"
"Oh. He's the host of This American Life. A...radio program?....on...NPR?"
"Yeah. Anyway..."

I hope your weekend was equally as wonderful. Today Z-cakes and I both have coughs so we're going to be wearing flannels and watching a lot of movies. I can't say I'm complaining.

A letterpress class?? I can't convey the depth of my jealousy. The good kind of jealousy, though. The kind of jealousy that makes me happy that at least someone I know got to take a letterpress class.

And I'm also seriously jealous about your night with Ira Glass! I love This American Life! That is so cool.

When nate told me about the plan, I at least understood what it was! Nevermind I kept forgetting why you were going to Boise (for some reason the cross state travel is the only thing that stuck in my mind)

You had me at Ira Glass. I love him.

michelle said...

Oh! I don't know which part I am most jealous about! Sounds like the most perfect weekend.

Hannah said...

You're husband planned that? Sounds like you are the perfect pair! What a perfect weekend!

Tanya said...

Ira Glass is my boyfriend.

bethany said...

I don't trust people who don't know who Ira Glass is.

Rachel Whipple said...

Jealous. Sounds so great!

Oh man! I've always wanted to take a letterpress class. I had no idea we had a place in Boise! Sign me up...

Jen said...

The This American Life Guy? Are you serious? Did you tell him, "Hey I have a friend that uses your show as writing prompts!" I am way jealous!
