happy

(no subject)

tired, but it's a good tired.

today: providence, rhode island - mall, zoo. ben and jerry's for lunch, *giggles*. the zoo was awesome - i finally saw the baby polar bear dan's been talking about for literally months.

then back to Braintree, to grocery shopping, then home, where we made these kickass meatballs in a red wine sauce and mashed potatoes for dinner. mmm. i'm going to get spoiled, cooking with these two again... then ran into Boston and went to jillians for a couple hours. lots of fun. discovered that i'm much better at water based games - boats, jet skis - than i am at driving games. i tend to run into less things. =] then back home on the T, where i am now, eating some leftover dinner and drinking some water, to wear off the last of the alcohol.

good day. i need to be doing more stuff like this. =]

i'm tired, but not quite ready to settle down yet.

my brain is completely confused about what time zone it's in. it keeps thinking that it's in cali at 1:30 am, which means that there's not going to be anyone online to talk to anytime soon, because everyone's already gone to bed a couple time zones ahead. only my brain's not in cali, it's in boston, (well, for loose values of in ;) ). there still isn't anyone around, because most everyone on this coast is headed to bed and most everyone on the west coast is still out enjoying their saturday night. even most of the little script kiddies on IRC aren't on. (well, except for one, who's being a bitch. but anyhow.) but i still wish my brain would sort out this whole time difference thing... about the time it does next week, i'll be headed back west coastish.

mayhaps i should give up and go to bed. but even with running around all day and not getting enough sleep last night, i'm still not sleepy. damn time zones. =]

called home and wished the male parental unit a happy father's day. =]

my dad rocks, folks. he has the patience of a saint, and NOTHING shakes him up. i'm extremely grateful for the family i grew up in, even if 3000 miles away is still the best place for me right now.

wasn't one of the best conversations i've had with my mom lately. she went off on a long tangent about how i should try to get a job with the U of Washington, even after i'd told her four times that they already have my resume, culminating in telling me how government jobs have good benefits, especially maternity benefits.

i swear, i'm not moving back to north carolina til i have her bloody grandchild in tow.

good day otherwise. it poured rain for most of it. we chased out to Framingham to see Tomb Raider. yes, i drooled. yes, i know that movie is aimed at teenaged boys. that doesn't mean that chicks who appreciate the female form can't drool too. =] besides, i'd like to think there's another demographic for movies like that - girls who grew up playing football, climbing trees, learning computers, riding bikes - the ones who ripped out the knees in all their jeans (my mom hated me, growing up) and busted open their lips on someone else's knee, making an awesome tackle; who ripped off the heads on their barbies instead of playing with dolls - and now, even though they've grown up, still secretly wish to kiss ass like Laura Croft.
