today i tried chasing down two craig's list items, a replacement 20" television and a window fan for kitchen oil aeration. neither sellers replied yet, so i might need to move onto plan b.
i went to harvard square to get some cash from the bank then went to the garden to collect some golden raspberries. not knowing what to do with them, i frozen them in the freezer (i still have raspberries from last season).
my father delivered some zongzi in the early evening, which i had for dinner. i offered some to my roommate, who had one as well. my father told me our relative's daughter was moving up to boston tomorrow, catching a ride from her boyfriend's family. has it been a month already?
using the 2nd patriots' pre-season game (against the atlanta falcons), i explained to my roommate the rules of american football. not sure if i've converted her into a lifelong fan, but i think she at least got the gist of it. during a commercial break i showed her my cuica, the brazilian friction drum. she'd never seen one before, and i showed her a few youtube clips of cuicas in action.
