Afterwards, I went over to my parents' house for a while and messed around with my paints. I wanted to paint a small 8" x 8" canvas with acrylics, just for practice, but I never managed to get the underdrawing to look right so eventually I got mad, tried to erase it, and got lead smears all over the canvas. In frustration I dumped a ton of cheap white paint onto the canvas and smeared it around until the surface was reasonably smooth and left it to dry. I'll try again next time.
I also went to a Catholic mass this evening, since I didn't make it to a morning church service and it just seemed wrong to skip out on church on Palm Sunday. I mean, if I'd been working that'd be one thing, but since I wasn't, I had to go somewhere. When I got there, I was directed into the gym (the church is also a parochial school) where I picked up some palm leaves to hold onto throughout the service. After the priest prayed and blessed the fronds with holy water, he led us into the church building in a little procession. Once everyone was seated, the main service began. When the time came for the Eucharist, I saw a lot of people leaving - I wasn't sure whether I should stay to the end of the service or not, since I can't partake of the bread and wine. (Catholics ask that Protestants not join them in communion.) I ended up sticking 'round, because the old lady at the end of my pew didn't get up for communion and I didn't want to try and crawl over her, since she was very frail-looking, but I think that if she hadn't been there, I would have taken off.
