...but for whatever reason, I have neglected posting here.
I am home.
I came in on Wednesday having not slept Tuesday night for working on my senior project. The robot, it seemed, liked sleep more than I did, and by 2AM it was too tired to work well and decided to twitch. I left at 4:30. On Thursday, I went out to dinner with mi madre and Tom and promptly stayed up too late again before heading to Boston on Friday morning.
It was during this too-late-ness that my phone, when trying to look up d0wnbytheriver's phone number, ceased to work. It froze, so I took out and replaced the battery. No luck. Blinking white screen. Took out the battery, plugged it in the wall. No luck. Phone was quite certainly dead.
So, phoneless, I toured BU's law school. I like it. It's looking like the favorite of the lot, at the moment, because I love the city and it is highly-reputed among law schools on the whole and among IP law programs (as the lack of overlap of the respective ranked lists is surprisingly nontrivial).
The realization that phonelessness would not do for even a twenty-four hour period struck me as I realized that I was to be hanging out with several friends in Boston over the next seventy-two. So, the hunt for Fire & Ice commenced, followed by the hunt for
Red October a Verizon store. Wherein I found the Voyager. Which, while not nearly as cool as the space ship, is still pretty damn cool. Tactile feedback touch screens ftw.
Madre and I saw Body of Lies, and then met up with Vro, who took us back to the T station where, at 7:45ish, I met up with oration. We had every intention of going to see insafemode at the show he was doing in Waltham at 8. Except that we tried and failed. We met up with his friends and hung out for a bit while waiting for his boy to figure out when/where/how to meet and/or get us to Waltham from Roxbury Crossing. His friend the elf had to put more money on the CharlieTicket he was using, so we missed the orange line which would have connected us on time to the Waltham commuter rail station. But, all was good when we made it to Alewife and Vin picked us up and drove us to the last five minutes of the show.
Then the lot of us went to Tom Can Cook, which surprisingly enough turned out to be true. We spent an hour-plus being Too Loud in an Asian Restaurant, telling stories of hungry couches and making bad "that's what she said!" jokes and trying to kill people by making them choke on their beverages via hilarity.
So we took insafemode home and had a nice orgy, by which I mean series of interesting conversations chock-full-o'-funny, from anal hooks to driver's ed mishaps to exactly how much Vin had smoked.
The night turned into early morning, which it had been threatening to do since we got back to oration's apartment, and Vro called me up, met me at the T station, and we went back to his place where I slept.
Next day, Vro and I went to the Penguin for pizza, went to Copley to find him some gifts for his girlfriend, and then met up with d0wnbytheriver, who was fun, but sick. We went to Quincy Market to (unintentionally) avoid the tree lighting ceremony, then went to see Quantum of Solace. Meghan departed, and Vro and I met dovyman at the door to Vro's apartment, where he'd been waiting for a few minutes.
We went out, back to the Penguin, and I had a notverygoodwithsalsa double-chocolate beer. We headed over to the nearest Irish pub, where we found karaoke and Mary Little, along with another high school friend(!?). A drink later, we left, mostly due to the karaoke, and headed to the Mission. A few more drinks later, we left and found Mary again, who headed back with us to Vro's apartment. One dirty girlscout and lots of gossip about who from Oakmont became drug addicts later, the guys left to go to bed and Mary argued with me about relativism until 4+ AM.
Next day, gave Dovy a ride home, and talked to a lady (Erin, for the record) who sent me a message while I was gone. The next day, I went to the dentist to find out I have a cavity (boo) and went to Bunce to have lunch with Chris (yay). Made too many ringtones for my phone, talked to Erin until 6AM. I think she likes me. :P
Tuesday, did a whole lot of absolutely nothing. And then talked to the girl 'til 4AM. I think I like her. :P
Tonight, I'm going to Chopsticks with madre and Tom for sushi. And then maybe drinks with Chris; either tonight or Friday. Might do something with Liza on Friday, if she can find time, but not likely. Tomorrow's activities will consist of eating, and eating, and then eating. Mmmm, food.
Saturday, I leave. And meet Erin. :)
Side note: I pity my senior project team. I feel like I deserted them by coming home. :/
I have not had a single normal night's sleep since I've been home. O_o
