Well, it's 12:30 PM here, and was just on the phone with my friend Scott Jeffers (formerlly from Rochester and Boston) who lives in Baltimore now. We were chatting for about two hours; I'm hoping that I can talk him in to coming to Saint Maarten with me -- it would be a blast! Scott's a great guy. What prompted this call you might ask? Well... US Airways just released their e-savers fares to Saint Maarten (now that I paid > $500 for my tickets, it figures!!) -- there's round trip fares from Boston, Baltimore and other cities to Saint Maarten for $379.00! ( http://www.usairways.com/promotions/esavers/offer_carib.htm )Well, that makes things easier for some people to go with me. So, I called Scott to see if he could join me.
I don't know what I want to do today -- I've just been chatting with Bruce and Scott on the phone all morning and lounging. I got some new CDs from Amazon in the mail that I'm checking out. Good stuff! My new CMJ subscription ( http://www.cmj.com/ ) should be starting soon -- yet another thing I miss about living with John... the music. Oh well, there are other sources for new music. I will have to make the best of it.
I don't have to go into work this weekend (unless paged), which will give me the whole weekend to do things, and frankly, I don't know where to start... Doing things alone sucks. Maybe I'll pop into a chat room and meet new people? Naw... maybe not. Maybe I'll do MIT today (the birthplace of BASIC!)
My roommate Matt invited me to the last performance of his play at Northeastern University -- I think I'll go. It's at 8:00 tonight. I'll check in again this evening. I'm feeling rather hyper today (after sleeping 10 hours, I should be!) -- I just might go out tonight!
