in the evening i went to a harvard lecture titled "designing the urban ark: biodiversity and the future of cities" given by a woman who looked like ellen degeneres. it was a packed audience for some reason, possibly some local school group there on assignment. the talk was interesting even though it seemed to meander a bit. at the very least it gave me some food for thought if i ever needed to have a discussion about urban planning.
afterwards i rode to the supermarket to get some groceries (i had a craving for clam dip for some reason). i rarely venture out to market basket at night, and the dearth of customers was surprising but a welcomed relief from the usual crowd. my bag boy had a funny grin on his face, and i noticed the NCAA tournament bracket printout he had in his hand. earlier i'd just watched a video where obama filled out his own bracket. "obama picked UNC to win," i told the bag boy. he said he picked UConn. i wished him luck and left with my groceries in my backpack. for dinner, i ate some leftover my mother gave me from earlier in the afternoon.
