for those who were in the boston area today: did you notice the sudden apocalypse weather? the sky literally went dark this morning and then suddenly started raining. only for a little bit though, and then it cleared up again. after some meat buns for lunch i went out for another run. asterisked, of course, but i'm still in training to get into running shape and it'll take some time. losing 15 lbs. might help too but baby steps, people, baby steps. too bad it wasn't raining when i went, going running and getting soaked is a great feeling. however, every time i passed a tree branch i'd shake it to get a brief rain shower.
when i came back home i watched little children. an interesting movie, in the same genre as babel and crash, seemingly unrelated stories that finally all fit together in a single unified story. the "prom king" is played by the same guy who played the child molester in hard candy, and it's hard to see him as anyone else other than a pedophile.
manny called me out of the blue this evening, back in town for just the weekend, asked if i wanted to get some food at nick's house of pizza, our old college haunt behind tufts. he came to pick me up in a yellow chevy cobalt he was renting for the next few days. i had the steak & cheese sub, manny went with the hamburger pizza.
