Friday- Worked late (part of my Graduate in '08! campaign), then went home and drank a bottle of wine and watched Love Actually with my roommate.
Saturday- Worked all day (see above campaign), then played soccer. My team won, in part due to my dirty tactics on defense. I used to be an aggressive but squeaky-clean player, but in a co-ed league, I must confess that I get a bit chippy when marking up on guys with a noticeable size advantage. In this game, I was covering a guy who was about 6 inches taller and 90 pounds my senior. He elbowed me in the chest at one point (totally by accident, but still, I was pissed), so I proceeded to elbow, kick at, knee, and tug on his jersey throughout the rest of the game. It's very rare for refs to call a girl vs. guy foul, so I never got called. As one of my teammates put it: "You could have pulled a 2 by 4 and whacked him over the head with it, and the ref still wouldn't have called anything." Whatever. We won. After that, I met up with some friends at Improv Asylum in the North End. I had never been to an improv show before (please forgive me, Tara D!), and I really enjoyed it. The format was similar to an episode of "Whose Line Is It, Anyways?" and so, so funny. There were mostly couples in the audience, so I would recommend it for a fun date night. After that, we went to a bar in the North End whose name I can't remember , but it was an alliteration.
Sunday- Went to a family lunch at my aunt, uncle, and cousins' house in central Mass, then met up with visiting college friend Teri and some friends at the Beehive. So fun! I love that place more every time I go. This time, we were the random people who show up at 5:30 on a Sunday (Early Bird special?), but we had a great time sampling drinks and food and chatting with the excellent waitstaff. The question of the day was "Where is the Strait of Magellan located?" and the whole bar got involved. No Googling- leave your answers in the comments.
