temperature this sunday hit 60's today, with a pervasive warm fog. it took me 18 minutes to bicycle the 2.84 miles to belmont (with 2 minutes of stop time at a few traffic lights and intersections). my mother was the first to come home since it wasn't too busy at the cafe. we went to the arsenal mall to buy some socks from old navy. i had a 30% discount friends and family coupon which i took advantage of to buy a pair of black pants and a fleece-lined vest. when we came back to the house my sister was home with the dog. from the garage i dug out an old bicycle that'd been there for more than a decade. it was originally my mother's but she's never used it. i hoping to clean it up so she can take it to get to work. my father took the evening off from chinese food delivery to have some dinner.
my new astrophysicist roommate was supposed to arrive today, but nobody's heard from him so we're assuming he's not coming, at least not today. if i wasn't so strapped for cash i wouldn't have any roommates. i have at least one more night of domestic autonomy! just by coincidence i instant messaged my former roommate sophia, who's currently working in shanghai, and she gave me some info on my missing houseguest. he's actually her boss, and was scheduled to arrive this week but due to some visa issues, he's delayed until next week.
