Saturday: I didn't do any of the things I had planned to do, but I accompanied Dan to his hair appointment at Shag, and later on we joined Ashu & some of her work friends at Caffe Vittoria to watch the Italy vs. USA game. Dan & I had purchased Italy t-shirts (mine is adorable, with rhinestones on each "i" in the word "ITALIA" -- maybe I'll get a picture up here soon). It's a good thing it was a tie game, if only for the people in the cafe with us -- half were rooting for the U.S., and half for Italy. It was quite a back-and-forth game! Later on, Dan & I watched The Boondock Saints (neither of us had ever seen it before; it was fantastic). Wow, I did a lot of movie-watching this weekend....
Sunday: I woke up around 9 in order that I could meet Karen a couple hours later at the Broadway T stop, so we could go to the South End Open Market. It was so cute; I definitely want to go back! But it was hot, so we didn't last as long as we might have. That, and we are both pretty broke at the moment, heh. So, we headed back to Karen's new place (after a few setbacks with various train-breakdown problems), which is so great. Her roommate has a very fun style, and Karen has a really sweet room. It started off white, and 2 hours later (despite the sweltering heat!), it was a fantastic, cheerful shade of "honeydew melon" (the picture does not do the color justice, sorry!):
We were so proud of ourselves! We definitely earned those beers we had a little later on at Redbones, where we met up with Dan for a fantastic (and very filling) dinner, yum. I think the heat & the day's work had exhausted me, though, because I ended up with a pounding headache on our way back home. I crashed almost right after we walked in the door. Ugh.
Well, I'm feeling much better now, and that's what counts. xoxo
