The past couple days have probably been the most low-key days of the whole summer. I've done a lot of lazing about. I've gone to see TWO movies at the theater - The Amazing Spiderman and the new Total Recall. That's twice as many as I've seen in the entire past year. Why did I do this? Because when you have the time to go to a movie during the day on a weekday, they only charge you $4.50. Today, I went in style. I grabbed some gas-station Chinese food and smuggled it inside my backpack along with a can of Diet Mountain Dew. There's no way I was going to pay the $15.75+tx they charge for two hot dogs and a soda. No. Way.
Wife has been the complete opposite of me, burning through list after list of task, grocery shopping, work, research, baby shower preparations - for a friend. Don't go getting any ideas. Crosses fingers. She's even taken the time to make about a million frozen meals for me to put in this
|Thanks to my mom and step-dad for this one!|
We also got a new couch, which I've been spending a bunch of time on. We LOVE IT. We waited six weeks for the The Hulk to arrive, so it's good that we're happy with it. It's called The Hulk because it's green and gigantic. I'm 6'2" tall, and I can lie on it without having either my feet or my head touch an armrest. The whole thing is something around 104" long. That's eight feet, eight inches of couch PLUS an ottoman. Without further ado, I give you The Hulk:
I've found that I have much to be thankful for in my med school class, before we've even begun. Everyone I've met through the Facebook page seems incredibly nice and down-to-earth. There might be some stuck-ups or snobs in the class, but they have yet to surface :). I'm happy for this, because apparently a med school class this awesome isn't always the case.
So here's hoping for a great last week at home before moving to a new(ish) city and the start of med school! I'm aiming to hang out with friends, spend time with some family, possibly see one more movie (The Dark Knight Rises), and perhaps another once it comes out (The Bourne Legacy). Yeah, I'm on a movie kick - mostly because I'm thinking that after August 27th (the official first day of class!) I doubt I'll be in a theater till next summer... Oh, and I'll also be running a goodly amount in the coming days. Barefoot training (well, in Vibrams...) is going well - just hit the 6 mile mark the other day. Huzzah!
