:: Sunday, October 23, 2005 ::

Friday evening was one of music; I attended a small chamber music concert featuring student musicians in our house playing classical pieces, and after that I went to see my favorite singer/songwriter Vienna Teng, who plays the piano and sings evocative pieces with clever lyrics that often have multiple layers of meaning. I last saw her two years ago when she stopped by Cambridge, and this time she played some new songs that I look forward to hearing again next year when her third album is released.

Yesterday, I watched the film "The Silence of the Lambs" for the first time. It was for the film class I'm taking this semester. What a well-done yet psychologically disturbing film! The final scene in the basement was so frightening... I wanted to jump out of my seat because it was so suspenseful. Now, I finally get all the references my friends make about the film...

"Good evening, Clarice..."
"It puts the lotion on its skin, or else it gets the hose again." ... "Put the fucking lotion in the basket!"
"A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti."

ha ha

I also went to my friend's birthday party, and that was a lot of fun. There was Toblerone chocolate! Yum. It also reminded me of newspaper class from senior year of high school.

It has been raining like crazy the past few weeks, and the air is getting really cold, too. Not all the leaves have started changing colours yet, so it doesn't look completely autumn yet, but soon that will change.

This weekend was the annual Head of the Charles Regatta, where all these schools race on the Charles River, which my house is on. It was really busy with all the visitors. I did get out a bit to see one of the concerts and get some free ice cream that they were handing out at one of the many promotional tents along the river.
