Last week, Curtis and I visited our friend Anna in Bloomington! It’s a fun ride down there with lots of pretty scenery and it’s only an hour away from Butler (it’s an extra 20-30 minutes from us, and I blame I-465 … and the conventions of distance).
It was so much fun! Anna works at the Lilly Library and knows All Things About Books, so she had awesome things to show us liiike AN ORIGINAL SHOOTING SCRIPT OF STAR WARS A NEW HOPE. (Imagine me shouting this while flailing my arms around.) We also got to see the original written manuscript of Patrick O’Brien’s The Far Side of the World, which my favorite movie Master and Commander is based off of.
Paul Bettany + Russell Crowe + Napoleonic era naval warfare = MASTER AND COMMANDER.
We had a ton of fun visiting Anna’s favorite haunts. It’s so cute and cozy down there! It was nice to take a little trip out of the city to visit our buddy. I heeeard there’s a rotation block down there and I wonder if I should request it! Free housing and everything!
