yay, i'm done with school! for now! done-done!
friday after work i joined my baby & dean & meredith for a quick drink, then went home to "work on my speech." or, you know, what really happened: "avoid working on my speech until very late." i ended up just printing out what i had written the week before, read it out loud a couple of times and, well, that was it. :D no matter - i got a perfect score anyway. i'm starting to wonder if EVERYONE in the class got a perfect score, because it didn't seem too hard to achieve...
so anyway, saturday was the speech. then i hung out with the dogs at the pool, read a national geographic cover-to-cover, took a nap when the airplanes & landscapers got too loud to doze away outside.. i had a party to go to - alex's birthday party - but didn't end up going. i didn't have such a great day and was not up for socializing, especially when how it would go was unknown.
saturday night was the black tie! i completely gave up in advance on having my hair look nice or different, so i got ready in record time! and the hair ended up pretty nice anyway. :) chris was mighty cute in his tux, and mighty cute all tired as he was (someone drank a bit too much jack at the air & sea show!)... the black tie itself wasn't so bad. mike maroone & rick case (those names will be familiar to south floridians) battled out a couple of auctions, which i found amusing. the huizengas, at the end, matched the entire $38k the auction had raised. i saw wayne from where i was sitting, but couldn't zero in on marti, which was too bad 'cause had i ended up in the bathroom, i wanted to tell her thanks for, you know, BUILDING the humane society and all.
sunday, um.. what did we do? we went to the sto'. i bought a bunch of weird fruit for alex and dropped it off at his place as a gift. i made some raw marinara sauce. we went out for greek food - yum! i quickly finished up my stuff for film class - i got an 80% on the quiz for "invasion of the body snatchers" - which i never watched. ha! i got myself an A in that class. :)
last night i mandolined up some zucchini for tonight's dinner - stringed zucchini with raw marinara sauce. i gave chris a taste of it last night and he ate the rest of the bowl i had in my hand, so i think that's a positive review.
