I love my friends. Foster brought by the most fabulous mix CD today. Damn, I think the thing has every inside joke song we've had over the last few years - "Bette Davis Eyes", "Brick House", "Maneater", "Super Freak", and more. She didn't have a playlist for it and so every new song is a surprise - a really good one.

Had a good weekend - after last week's craziness (many many projects) got some much needed rest. On Friday met up with SS the SS, her sister, a bunch of her friends, and TB to go to the galleries for First Friday. Carrie had said that it was a good time and she was right - free cheap wine, interesting art, and eccentric characters all around. One of the galleries had pictures from late 19th/ early 20th century Greece - was cool to see how places looked 100 years before I saw them. The same gallery had some great paper mache' and we talked with artist for a while, SS the SS's sister talked theater with one of the other gallery goers - it's cool how seeing people in different places shows you new sides of them. Afterwards we went to dinner - drank much Chianti, ate tons of garlicky Italian food. Saturday was a thoroughly agreeable full day with TB - shopping at Potomac Mills (got a dress that will work for Demmert and Darren's wedding next weekend), night swimming, and movie watching. Then today had brunch with Bibi followed with movie watching (of course - saw Insomnia and Secretary. Liked Insomnia more than I'd thought I would and Secretary less.) Did some laundry, some cleaning, and baked cookies. A quiet sleepy day.

Not so the rest of this week. Am off to CHI tomorrow - looking very forward to a few days of education during the day and hopefully getting to do some networking and see some friends in the evening. Have the student poster presentation from my Masters Project which should be fun (though I've completely been the slacker partner in that effort). Am a bit nervous about being in such a researchy environment but know it'll be good for me. And certainly the good weather will be!
