I just got out of a fairly challenging cs theory test, but that had been far out of my mind for the whole week. Why? Because it's Dante party week!
Dante Marioni is here at Centre, to teach us glass kiddies and to give demos and such, and I have been bounding about in excitement for the past two days.
It's a bit frustrating, as I'm sure it is with well-known badass people in *any* field of interest, that I flutter around going "Dante's coming!! Dante's coming!! It's gonna be soooo awesome, eeeeeeeeee!!!", and my friends just sort of half-smile and say "Uh...good!" Oh well, I'm sure it's that way everywhere else. Whether you're big into glass, comics, basket-weaving, trashy romance novels, ANYTHING, I'm sure you've had the experience of spouting off about some awesome person in the field, only to have the vast majority have no idea what you're talking about.
So, for those who don't know, Dante Marioni is a really cool glass guy. That should cover it.
I'll be in the studio for the bulk of 3 days learning who knows what, it will be awesome. *Swoon* Yaaaaaaaaay!
