friday is fun

today is a good day for a few reasons.

last night i had fun at our dinner on morgan stanley. turns out the other young people at the office are pretty cool. there were 17 of us who went and only 5 of us were in the under 30 crowd. we went to a pretty expensive restaurant in boston, the chart house. it was a fish place but i didn't have fish of course. people ordered appitizers which were all fish related so i didn't have any. i had 3 martinis which were about $10 each. i felt like having another but i wasn't sure if i should. i had a $30 fillet mingon. along with mashed potatoes and sauteed mushrooms. it was pretty good. for dessert we had these chocolate lava cake things which were excellent. everyone was pretty silly from having drinks so it was a good time. i didn't even get home till after 10.

anyway, as for why today is good...well the obvious is that it is friday and i can sleep as late as i want tomorrow. we were allowed to wear red sox apparel today so i havea red sox t shirt and cords on.
the gay's birthday/halloween party is tonight and it should be a good time. i made caramel apples last night!!! exciting! everyone is going to be in costume. i can't wait to see everyone dressed up. i bought scrubs, i'm going to be a doctor. i need to find a surgical mask! i'd like to have a few drinks but not get wasted. poor dan is sick. i'm not sure if he'll go. i'll have to go by his house since the caramel apples are there. i was afraid my roommates would eat them.

dariusz from work knows someone who works at the state house. there is a red sox rally there today. he brought melissa who is obsessed with varitek with him to meet varitek. that was pretty nice of him. good thing she has her camera with her today. it would be like if i met ben affleck. i'd die happy. no matter what anyone says i think ben still makes quality movies.

not many people are here in the office today. it's pretty quiet. that doesn't bother me much because i just draw or write in this journal or play mah jong tiles. i'm actually sitting on the other side at doris's desk. she is out sick and robert has the day off so they need someone to help out over here. and of course it was me. lovely. i have about 4 hours left. *sigh*

another reason why today is good because i got paid today. this also means i have to pay some bills, but that's OK. i start peet's on sunday and soon i should have a little extra money to blow. yay for that.

yeah so that's enough for today. i'm going to draw animals with a sharpy and hilighters. it will keep me amused for a little while.
