so last night Amber's friend Emily (though i suppose she counts as my friend at this point too) had a girl's night. i was overdue for some social interaction, so i went. it was much fun. Emily fed us lasagne and salad and breadsticks and fondue for dessert, and it was tasty. we all sat around and chattered until very late. Amber gave me a ride home, and it was nice to get to chatter at her a bit, since i hadn't seen her in awhile. all in all, it was a lovely evening.
