Weekend Wanderings

This weekend felt jam-packed and left me exhausted - and a little sick, so I'm just going to make a list of some of our adventures, and ask a quick favor: Does anyone have suggestions for a good soup that's easy enough to make when you're under the weather? All I wanted today was soup, but since I don't get back from class until 9pm, I had to manage on bland egg drop/wonton takeout. I'd prefer something with a little more love before I revert to condensed chicken noodle. It's just a cold, so I think that with some good soup, steam vapors, and a few full nights of sleep, I'll be ready for action soon.

  • Promotion at work (my first ever - very exciting).
  • Happy hour at Fat Cat. Really good a cappella.
  • Poetry reading by the very talented Danniel Schoonebeek.
  • Taxi ride to make early train to meet Dave, our impromptu overnight guest.
  • Breakfast with Dave at the Mohegan Diner, where a waitress tried to throw out Roger's reusable travel mug because it looks like a disposable cup.
  • Shopping for new pants and a blazer (because I got a promotion and everyone should have at least one nice outfit to wear to work, and also because I found a coupon online).
  • Read all of Stitches. It was less good than I was hoping it would be, but I know now that my expectations were just too high.
  • Made fried brown rice and dumplings. It was pretty delicious, considering all the mistakes I made while preparing them.
  • Was asked to write weekly article in the Mahopac News. Also very exciting.
  • Ate cake that my parents bought for their double-date.
  • Ate cake for breakfast.
  • Donated and put away summer clothes, replaced with winter clothes.
  • Front-desk duty at opening of After the Fall.
  • After-party for opening of After the Fall. Met lots of very interesting people (one of the myriad of wonderful things about dating Roger is that he is constantly introducing me to the most incredible people). Ate a different type of cake.
  • Drinks/dinner at Alligator Lounge, where we were able to sit outside and enjoy the gorgeous weather.
  • Sea Wolf concert. Easily one of the best concerts I've ever attended.
  • Last minute dash to make train. Town-car woes.

Really a good one, in general, but I'm looking forward to getting some sleep. Right ... now.
