Too tired for words, so this'll be (mostly) brief:

Friday night I went to see The Wind That Shakes the Barley with [livejournal.com profile] twitch124, a touching and beautifully-done movie about the Irish rebelling against British rule in the 1920s. Afterwards [livejournal.com profile] twitch124 explained some of the background behind the story (and the subtleties that I wouldn't have noticed) and we caught up a little.

At 7-Eleven I found the ultimate convenience food with tuna: Bumble Bee Sensations. It comes with crackers and a plastic spoon to spread the tuna. How lazy can you get :-)

Saturday I woke up at 6am and caught a ride with [livejournal.com profile] daria78 to help out with the Odyssey of the Mind state tournament. The little elementary school kids are so cute! I traded wielded dustmops and traded juicy gossip with [livejournal.com profile] dearmouse (well not so much really, but it makes my life sound more exciting :-) and I went to dinner at Brown Sugar Cafe with [livejournal.com profile] daria78, E, and K--whereupon I ran into D and his family, and [livejournal.com profile] cmouse and J, all before we sat down to eat. Then I went to the last hour of [livejournal.com profile] marcusmarcusrc's Thesis Defense Party. And... wow, 19 hours of wakefulness.

Sunday [livejournal.com profile] lokiect, [livejournal.com profile] unequilibrated, and I drove up to Marblehead beach and clambered on the rocks. The private property limited how much area we could cover, but we took many many photos of mussels and barnacles and algae, and there was a pretty lighthouse from the 1800s. We threw away the trash and litter we found strewn about the parking lot (ew) and had a picnic lunch in neighboring Swampscott. After doing our respective afternoon chores we met up again for dinner at Bluefin (the beach made us really hungry for fish) and procured tasty snacks at Kotobukiya.

Monday was a zombie day of sleep deprivation at work, but I trekked down to the BU Theatre for a performance of Trial of God by Elie Wiesel, with Klezmer music courtesy of KlezMITron (D and J et al). The play was delayed by about 30 minutes, but it was decent and had many moving moments, not to mention festive music.
