Dinner and Star Wars Trailers

I went out to dinner with Sara and Jill to celebrate each of us being done with the most recent drafts our theses. We met up at Silvertone on Bromfield Street in Boston, had a couple of drinks, and ate some food, and generally had ourselves a good time. It seemed like a very swanky place, but the macaroni and cheese had come highly recommended, so that’s what Sara and Jill got. I, on the other hand, never someone to pass up a good slice of meatloaf, opted for something different.

All in all, it was a pleasant night out with my pals. We got to talking about all of the usual things: movies, books, and our writing. And, they didn’t once make a comment about how desperately I need a haircut (which is coming tomorrow), and that was nice too.

I’ll be enjoying a nice, long weekend starting right about now, as Stef and I have finally made plans, after a year of talking about it, to go and see a fertility expert. That’ll be on Monday, so I’ve taken the day off from the part-time gig.

Despite my initial misgivings, I am beginning to like A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius. I don’t think it will usurp Middlesex as my favorite novel of the year so far, but I think I will enjoy it.

And now I am off to watch what I hear is an amazing trailer for Star Wars Episode III, which I happened to come across on the Internet days before it’s supposed to be on the Internet. Isn’t the Internet a wonderful thing?
