Reflections on a MITblogs Entry

Ben's Final Farewell

In retrospect, it's fragmented as heck and I nearly cried writing it. But I still think it's one of the most important entries I've written this entire summer. Certainly the most meaningful.

Enjoy your weekend, everybody!

I am currently devouring reheated steak and lobster left over from when my parents and I went out this weekend. Mm, surf and turf. Reminds me of Rush. And of family.

Surprise Visit

I just found out that my parents are coming in to Boston tonight - with tickets for the Red Sox game on Sunday!

I am pumped. :) (Perhaps I will even see Snively there?)

And now, off to my lab to do a little weekend research. Because science, like justice, never sleeps.

Heaven in your mouth

When you guys get to Boston, you have to experience Dim Sum in Chinatown on a Sunday afternoon. It is heaven in your mouth. Trust me. :)

Social plans

Wednesday: Firefly at Skullhouse
Thursday: Dennis' birthday party at Ginza in Boston (7 pm)
Friday: Fourth of July! Sleeping in and fireworks

In the meantime, my pet projects currently include continuing to learn LaTeX (with the eventual goal of making a few important documents - my resume, Skullhouse's bylaws - into .tex files), playing around with PostScript and Python, and catching up with summer reading. Not to mention blogging, of course (the third installment of "In Their Words," something about Guildcamp, etc.)

Should be a good week.
