coffee and ethiopian food
last night was christmas at the terrace (as my home is generally called, even tho we no longer live on the terrace). we used to live on a terrace, and apparently this was another in a long line of simpsons' references that i don't get.
how exciting! (early christmas, not simpsons' references.)
i got: Are men necessary?
so, i've heard nothing but bad things about this book (and not just from male reviewers) but i'm curious to read it.
i also got chocolate covered espresso beans---yum. i really really like these things.
and speaking of that, coffee was the only thing that got me out of bed this morning. i have a fair amount of work to do today and we have our "lab dinner" tonight at the ethiopian restaurant in town.
and it's really dawning on me that christmas is less than a week away and i'll get to go "home" and i'm in a good mood and actually excited about seeing my family. can you believe it?
