saturday night brought work and, afterward, an adventure to the city. the photographer and i drove down to cumberland & took a ride on the blue line, picked up some beer, and walked to m.'s apartment. the birthday girl met us at the door and we hurried upstairs to revel in the festivities.

it was a lot of fun! we caught up with old friends and made a few new ones in the process. at one point it started raining, so those of us who had been out on the roof made our way inside, sitting in the breezeway/stairwell between the roof and the apartment. in typical fashion, the photographer brought along a disposable camera and documented the event at every turn. (there were a few cell phone photos, but they are blurry and a bit drunken. heh.)

after the party we walked around, enjoying the evening and, also, looking for food. the best we could do was pop tarts from an empty citgo and eventually we found our way to the el, back to cumberland. it was very late when we got home (or very early, depending on how you were looking at it) and we promptly went to sleep.

the rest of the weekend was uneventful, as i figured it would be. work is going decently. yesterday i had the day off, so i ran a few errands and started a new book: nineteen minutes by jodi picoult. i've been reading it all day, and at this point, i'm just about halfway... i haven't been able to put it down. i don't know. picoult is an incredibly captivating writer, and that definitely has something to do with it. my familiarity with the subject matter is also a factor, i think.

despite that, i'm enjoying it so far, and at this pace i'll probably be heading back to the library within the next few days. i've got a few ideas in mind for my next pick, but i'm always looking for suggestions so feel free to send 'em my way. i've said it before, and i'll say it again: having the ability to read for fun again is probably one of my favorite parts of being a college grad (among other things. it's at the top of the list, though.)
