    Arghhhh I can’t even express my jealousy, Liza! You had better take lots of pictures and get that autograph you promised me!

    Side note for people who might be going into the city on Tuesday: Urban Center Books is relocating. I was in NY yesterday and, to get my text-fix, wound up at Strand Bookstore; I must say, they have a pretty impressive selection, some hidden gems, and lots of discounts. Go to the second floor for architecture.

    Yen Ha and Michi Yanagishita are both CMU Alums. Their office, Front Studio, is named for their first year studio experience. The way you guys were in red, blue, and yellow studios, they were in front, middle and back studios (in Doherty Hall no less!).
