But my fascination with “social buying” is best espoused elsewhere. In any case, the museum was great.

In other non-photography-or-wedding-related news, I busted my knee later that night. I was walking up an escalator, my left foot slipped and my right knee, lifted in mid-step, slamming right into the sharp edge of the escalator stair.

I’m a big big walker so it’s really painful to have to sit around all day not able to do any of my normal stuff. Plus, I had already missed almost a month of yoga because my toothache was so distracting. Alas. On the plus side, it should be fine in a few weeks, tops. It already feels better today than it did yesterday.
