Have I mentioned how I enjoy not having to rush out of work to make a train? ‘Cause yeah. I left campus yesterday around 5:35 after hanging out with RA and Cailin. And by “hanging out” we largely mean: rubbing Cailin’s back while she stressed about finding a new apartment.

On the recommendation of somebody in Maria’s LJ, I went to Custom Eyes in Central Square. I decided to just replace the lenses ‘cause the frames really are fine, and the expenditure for the lenses alone was more than enough. So Wednesday lunch hour I’ll be going back. Obviously an official stamp of approval will wait until after I actually go on Wednesday, but so far I’m a big fan.

As the months have passed, I’ve gotten used to no longer living at Smith where I had a dozen people living in the same building who could easily come visit me (and I them) but now that I’m living with people again I find myself missing it again. We all work different schedules, so we’re not home at the same time much to begin with, and the presence of a cat means two of us often keep our bedroom doors closed (not that we dislike the cat, but we don’t want cat all over our rooms). This discontent is prompted partly by inconvenience (I’ve barely seen OriginalRoomie since I bought a router, so I still have no Internet at home) but also by missing people generally -- exacerbated by irregular LJing (due to the aforementioned lack of Internet at home).

lunch, and housewarming party

RA brought me banana nut coffee cake and strawberries from the ExecEd program.

Eric and I had lunch outside -- at the Square 'cause he's addicted to Boston Tea Stop slush (honeydew, especially). At his urging, I ordered one, too. Coconut this time. (Sidenote: Would I like passion fruit, or lychee? Ooh, the online menu says you can combine. Maybe I'll order a strawberry kiwi next time.)

Eric's suggestions for when to have my housewarming party included the last weekend in August and Fourth of July weekend. I suspect both these are bad ideas, but they do remind me that I should do a survey of when is _not_ good for people. I'm probably going to have the party on q Saturday (plan is afternoon seguing into dinner party seguing into sleepover) but I'm open to petitions for Fridays or Sundays. I'm rooting for mid-late July but am open to petitions for August. I thought about doing an all-out poll, but there are so many dates left in the summer that instead I invite you to comment with your preferences -- especially since that also gives you a forum in which to tell me how likely/interested you are in attending.

Oh, and I had mentioned to my mom doing monthly dinner parties after this 'cause (1) seeing people = yay (2) I'm disinclined to make real food when I'm just making it for myself (3) I'm gonna have so much booze left over after my party.

i r ownzor teh internetz

By which I mean... we got the router hooked up.  I dislike how many cords need to be involved (as is true with most stuff computerized) but lo, I have internets connection at home.  Huzzah.

Today I also did more laundry, bought groceries (the Foodmaster is supa-close, yo), washed dishes, and cleaned the freezer. Tomorrow is Target, plus of course new lenses on my lunch hour.

Oh, and they started repainting the bathroom this morning and also fixed the lights on the mirror. zomg bright liek whoa.
