today i had my very first out-of-the-office meeting in cambridgeport. dana, carly and i piled into alex's car,
it took us only five minutes to drive from boston into cambridge on the turnpike. for some reason i was car sick, even with the window down. the meeting was only 2 hours but by the time we got out it was 3pm and i didn't eat anything the whole day. the weather was so nice, it would've been the perfect day to blow off work for the rest of the day and drive down to the beach to get some fried clams. driving back, i was car sick once again, and when we returned to boston, i went out immediately to get some lunch, some vegetarian pizza from al capone's
. by the end of the work day i was really sleepy (i hope nobody saw me working with my eyes closed), the result of many restless nights. i was relieved to finally go home.
i had dinner at zoe's with my parents and godfather (in town visiting). the food was salty and spicy, typical szechuan affair. we talked about my roommate situation, and my godfather gave us some of his own roommate anecdotes from singapore. afterwards we came back to my place to chat. mike was home doing the laundry (but left soon afterwards), my parents met him for the very first time. we talked about the real estate market and my godfather wanted me to get back into art.
