Class was canceled tonight! It was strange being at the office so late on a Wednesday, but you know what they say: make hay while the sun shines! My officemates and I took a bus to have dinner at Amsterdam Falafelshop on 14th St. (NW).. Holy cow. I had wondered what falafel was, and now I know. It's a delicious sort of middle eastern hush puppy, but instead of being a bread ball, it's made from veggies and chickpeas and ... some other things? I'm honestly not sure, but it was wonderful. What wasn't wonderful was being met with this poster (left).
On the way home, we came across this poster:
Since we didn't have class, my darling Rachel (check out her TWC blog!!) and I met up at the RAF and toted my full-size comforter to the field down the block for the NoMa Summer Screen, which shows movies for free on Wednesday nights on an enormous blow-up screen... Check out that crowd!!
Back at the RAF, I threw the now grassy blanket in the washing machine and taught Rachel to cloak artisan loaves. While they were rising, we went into the gym on the P1 (basement) level. My. Legs. Are. Jelly. But even so, it felt wonderful to work out! It's been too long since spring semester.
This evening everyone who auditioned for commencement received an email. There was a moment (or ten) of hesitation before I opened my email; while I stared at the subject line on my phone, Rachel squealed in delight (having received an email as well) and told me what my own screen confirmed.
