Things I did today:
I biked the mile to Trader Joes, my skirt flying up here and there, because I made the stupid decision to look at the pretty fall colors on Memorial Drive. Instead, I frantically tried to pedal and not flash anyone at the same time, which was a losing battle because of the wind advisory today (really Boston? Thanks).
I worked in our freezing cold lab, a miserable experience because they did an unannounced steam shut-off this morning. Brr. BRR.
I dressed in red, orange and green today. Yes, I've noticed. I'm kind of a kindergarten teacher in disguise.
I bought bread ends at Flour, the world's best deal for $1.50 - I expected them to be stale and perfect for crouton-making, but not so! They were beautifully soft and fluffy. Perfect for a dinner of bread and cheddar broccoli chowder.
I made apple butter! So delicious, oh my. Along with the maple cream I purchased, the crepes study break later in the year is going to be so tasty.
I watched Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs with my apple-butter-making-GRT-partner-in-crime. Started out very cool and mad sciencey---ended really, really odd (let's just say Owen Wilson voiced the part of a guy that ended up inside a radioactive half sentient chicken carcass)
I went to bed before midnight. Always a winning time in my book!
PS Making the Hippo Dance is a fascinating look at how the folks at Radiolab make the hippo---hard-to-understand scientific concepts ---dance and come alive. That's exactly what I want to do...Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich, do you need a science intern in Boston?
