At Last

So its been a while since I updated which is I guess somewhat indicative of my lack of time to do such things. This past weekend was pretty good. My parents and sister went to a soccer tournament in Agawam and I saw Elsa for quite a bit. We did a few things around the house and eventually found ourselves in a hobby shop. We bought a model plane to build that was a "level 2" Box said it was for ages 12+ which should be about right for the two of us. With all the painting and cutting a glueing it ended up easily taking 8 hours to complete spread out over two days. We also went to Wild Willies in Watertown to get some truly delectable burgers and hand cut fries. If you haven't been there, I would highly recommend it. There is one just off the pike in watertown and then another in York, Maine. Both are quite good and worth the drive from wherever you are. On Monday, we got up early (like 5:30 am early) and drove out to Agawam to see my sisters first playoff game. They didn't win but put up a good fight none-the-less. After that, Elsa and I drove back to worcester so i could get some work done and she could try and tackle her thesis writing. I did a few experiments and we were on our way. We stopped by Uncle Cheungs in Framingham for a quick Chinese lunch before returning home for the night. The food was good but much more noteworthy was the first time that I found myself eavesdropping on a chinese conversation. I have picked up enough mandarin at this point to almost figure out what people are talking about. Elsa taught me a few new phrases that I, of course, can't remember now and made the waiter laugh at us a bit. Yesterday ws Marie's birthday so some of the old crew went out to dinner and had a marvelous time. We went to the Naked Fish and I had what amounted to steak au poivre but with tuna in stead of beef. It was fairly good but a bit overdone. I like my tune closer to sushi than canned white chunk. After dinner the table began to reminisce a bit about the old college days which was nice but also a little melancholy at times. Most of the conversation revolved around the general debauchery of 18 Sunrise Ave. For those that are familiar I will give the highlights of times remembered
Thadeus is living in the basement?
Jen tricks us into thinking she went to bed
Artie slides down the stairs one at a time and punches the wall
Sarah you can not sleep here
The porch collapses
Kimmy and the bathroom???
Hiding Greg's Vodka
Utah Stephanie and Seagrams 7
Kimmy cries over her scrapbook...twice
Sarah...its for you (sarah answers the phone).
DP Dough drinks a gargleblaster
Puke on the flowers
Jillian and the basement

and finally...Marie: " Remember when you had huge parties 5 weekends in a row?"

Amazingly, I do and happily I think a lot of others do too. Patrick OUT!

Patrick oh man! I feel like I haven't talked to you in so long. Probably because I haven't. Which makes me a bad friend. But you haven't talked to me either...which probably makes you a busy friend. I just had the weirdest night of my life...and it didn't involve Audrei's Hookah Bar and Grill. In fact, I haven't been there in a long time. Anyway, hope everything is going well. Hope to talk to you soon.
