I have returned.

“So let us summon a new spirit of patriotism, of responsibility, where each of us resolves to pitch in and work harder and look after not only ourselves but each other.”

“This is our time, to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids; to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace; to reclaim the American dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth, that, out of many, we are one; that while we breathe, we hope.”

I really liked those parts, plus the whole thing.

Moving on, Questions and Answers:

Where have you been!? I know, I know. In addition to classes, work, and GAMS shenanigans, I’ve been busy! Monday night was the Skins game with Franklin, and we met up with none other than Lesley Longest! Tuesday, Lesley and her friend Casie wanted to sightsee, and I never turn down an opportunity to spend time in the city so I went with them. We went to Spices for lunch then spent the rest of the afternoon at the zoo! Wednesday, Tara and I skipped class and had a lovely dinner/bitchfest. I met up with the NEWLYWEDS Kevin and Sarai after work on Thursday for a little dinner and Grey’s Anatomy. Friday, I got to visit Kelley, Ryan, and Jack and HOLD RYAN (eeeeeeeee so tiny and precious), and then later helped host a student forum for my masters program, and tonight I’m going to a fellow student’s play on opening night.

You know who can sing well? Ray Lamontagne. Loving his new album.

Remember when I had that job that sucked? WELL LOOKY HERE, all my “hard” work finally paid off. That’s right. I’m listed as a Major Contributor for a government publication on transportation that approximately 25 people will ever look at. Jealous?!

What am I obsessed with? Nando’s Peri-Peri. New restaurant in Gallery Place. DELICIOUS.

You know what I need to stop doing? 1. Spending money. I have none. 2. I need to stop not having a job. 3. Saving pictures and things I work on to my desktop. I’ve got the picture of the CC on the stairs from Jean’s vow renewal, and all my icons cover up the faces of Meghan, Josh, and Dan. It’s not right.

What did I do two Friday’s ago? Quite a specific question, but thanks for asking! I went on a DC Ghost Tour with Tara and Brian. Oooooh! A fun, out-of-the-box evening. Also we had dinner at Nando’s Peri-Peri. GO THERE. NOW. So effing delicious.

-Tuesday = awe. Pure awe.
-Major Contributor > Other Contributor, so good job!
-Get the icon off my face!!
-Based on these raves, it looks like we must go to Nando’s Peri-Peri when I'm home in December.

Hahaha the icons on people's faces made me think of the Geico commercial with Mrs. Butterworth.

Anyhow, I am SO JEALOUS of your social life!! And the face that you got to hold a tiny baby (squee!). I look forward to coming home in March so you can make lots of plans for us. It seems Missy had great wisdom in passing the social planning torch to you. :)
