in the late afternoon bruce and i got out of our houses and went out walking. i wanted to find examples of people freezing in the cold (today was in the teens) and take their photos (i'm a sadist). at the radcliffe quadrangle we saw a young man walking around in sleeveless polo shirt. too macho to sport a jacket, we him minutes later running to his destination before he froze to death. in harvard square, we watched a girl clopping along in heavy shoes wearing just a miniskirt. a slave to fashion!
client N got back in touch with me. the verdict: unknown, wait until tomorrow afternoon to see if i need to go down to birmingham. i can go either way. i sort of don't want to go now because of all the hassle but wouldn't mind it either because i've heard so much good things about southern barbecue. client B contacted me too, with some updates about our neverending HH project.
in the early evening my father came to pick me up. i went with him to the health clinic in davis square to get his eyes checked. i was his driver in case his eyes were too dilated to drive. since it was at night though, it wasn't too big a deal, and he managed to drive me back home afterwards. my mother packed me a boxed dinner which i took with me.
after a shower and dinner (including some dulce de leche ice cream for dessert), i had a craving for more pistachio nuts. i got dressed and walked to the supermarket to satisfying my cravings. they also had a sale on regular nuts ($1.85/lbs) and i bought 2 lbs. of hazelnuts and brazil nuts. you can say i'm a little nutty for... too easy! oh, also got a nut cracker, you have to have one of those.
