On my way in to work, about fifteen or twenty little kids of maybe three years old (accompanied by a couple adults) came into the subway car I was on, all happy and giggling with each other and polite and friendly and babbling in the baby-talk approximation of some language I couldn’t place, maybe Korean or maybe some not-very-tonal variety of Chinese. That totally made my day.
Work went well.
Had yummy dinner (and gelato, for the first time, I think) with lilbjorn in the North End, and it was great. I need to spend more time in the North End; I’ve almost never been. The place we ate was Caffè Pompei, and the food was very good, albeit a bit too generous.
Oh, speaking of generous food, I stopped in briefly at the gym today, and I actually lost a little bit of weight in Hawai‘i. It must have been the fact that I ate such very healthy food, or that I was eating it in such small quantities. Also, I lifted a little more weight on some of the machines than I usually do, and hadn’t even broken a sweat by the end. I thought I got a lot less exercise in Hawai‘i than I usually do, except for the time in the water (and even then, I was basically just hanging out rather than swimming), but I guess I won’t look gift muscles in the mouth. Maybe sunshine is just good for me.
Stopped by cathijosephine’s on the way home and had a nice time with her.
Next weekend is going to be great! I'm going down to NYC on Saturday, seeing nex0s and eisa, going to the performance of Kala’s resident-artist piece at Tribeca (yay), hopefully spending a lot of time at the Strand, and getting some time with Kala on Sunday. Also might end up seeing gishmi1ish on Monday — gishmi1ish, are we on for that?
And I’m basically just happy and excited about life.
Now to go get some sleep so I stay that way.
