Friday- It was the last day in the lab for one of our rotation students, so we had a happy hour with food and beers after work. If you think that hanging around at work after hours drinking cheap beer with a bunch of scientists sounds like a lame way to spend a Friday night, well, then, I guess you think I'm pretty lame. I took a sobering long walk back to my apartment, then set up shop on the couch to read Harry Potter. At some point, I fell asleep, and woke up in the middle of the night, covered in sweat on my leather couch.
Saturday- My college friend Kori was in town with her fiance, whom I had never met before, so Lisa and I had dinner with them at the Palm. After a delicious dinner, we headed across the street for drinks at The Oak Bar, because apparently one fancy hotel bar wasn't enough for the night. After a very intense drunken discussion of illegal immigrants, Presidential candidates, and economic policy, I went home, started reading Harry Potter on the couch, and woke up in a ball of sweat at 4:30AM. Again.
Sunday- Finished reading Harry Potter (liked it, won't discuss as to avoid spoilers), then I met Kim, Mike, and Maya for breakfast at Flour. We walked around the South End outdoor market for a bit, and I've been at work since then, actually making some progress.
