i've decided that tomorrow i'm going to take a break and do what i do best, and that is going out on my bike and getting drunk on nature. today i finally delivered, two deliveries to client P as a matter of fact, one in the morning, another one in the afternoon, both times riding down to cambridgeport to deliver some cd-roms. the weather was okay earlier in the day but then it became overcasted and the temperature hovered in the 50's: not yet summer, definitely not winter, exactly spring.
i had dinner with julie at the kebab factory; julie was under the impression that maybe it's owned by the same people who own diva's in davis square. the first thing that caught my eye was the resin tabletops with all sorts of indian spices and ingredients embedded underneath the plastic. when you go to a place called the kebab factory you almost have to order some kind of kebab: i went with a flavored lamb. they came skewered and served inside of a metal cauldron to keep the food warm. verdict: despite the appetizing descriptions in the menu, the meat actually tasted sort of bland. you'd think for an indian recipe there'd be some stronger tastes. i also had a plate of mulligatawny soup; never had it before, really just a glorified version of basic lentil soup.
afterwards we went to the win & casket across the street. a group of fresh-faced boys and girls -- obviously underaged -- came into the liquor store. it was fun seeing how nervous they were trying to score some alcohol (i think they ended up just buying some moldy cheese). we came back to my place to watch tv (including one of my new favorite shows, teachers - sarah shahi is superhot) before julie went home.
