Weekend Report

Friday- Worked late (booo), met some friends out for drinks, went to bed.

Saturday- Went to a baby shower for a soccer teammate, where the entire team gorged themselves on the buffet. I ate too much, then played soccer and stunk it up on the pitch because the majority of my energy was focused on not vomiting. After the game, I drove out to Framingham for a big night out in the suburbs: dinner at Chili's and a movie. I saw Failure To Launch, the new RomCom starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew McConaughey. It was pretty much par for the course for the genre (chick flick). McConaughey plays Tripp, a charmer who still lives at home with his parents, who hire SJP to get him to move out of the house. Naturally, she ends up falling for him but the relationship goes haywire when he discovers the set-up. Both leads looked ten years older than their respective groups of friends (probably because they are), which hindered plot credibility . Zooey Deschanel was entertaining as SJP's sarcastic roommate, and according to her IMDB page, she's actually 15 years younger than SJP. Terry Bradshaw is fun to watch as Tripp's dad, and he even does a nude scene. Butt shot only; no full frontal (thank goodness). But other than that, the movie was predictable and had a few too many lame gags (mostly involving animals) for my liking. How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days was similar, but a lot better.

Sunday- I had intended to work in the lab all day, but it was too gorgeous outside to waste it on the pursuit of science. I ditched the lab and went shopping, ran some errands, and had dinner with Maria, her boyfriend, and her parents, who are visiting from Atlanta.
