23.11.2006 - 23.11.2006
Thanksgiving was amazing. We started out the day by putting on a performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Armitage decided that we had not seen enough Shakespeare productions this semester to satisfy him, so we put on a reading of our own. I got to play Titania, the fairy queen. Since this is an honors program and we are all nerds for coming here, we went all out with our set and costumes. We even had an audience of friends and families who were visiting for Thanksgiving break.
Then we all almost fell asleep during politics class.
Then we went out for Thanksgiving dinner! Professor Armitage made us reservations at a pub, the name and location of which he kept a secret until after our production that morning. The food was very good (turkey, steaks, and even an onion tart for me). We had appetizers, a main course, dessert, and coffee, which the program paid for. It was a nice alternative to having to cook in our flats. Armitage also got us all Christmas crackers, so we all got paper crowns and toys to play with while waiting for our dessert. Then we all walked home together singing every pop song we could think of at the top of our lungs. It was an odd way to spend Thanksgiving, but something we'll all remember.
