last weekend found me back in indiana. i took friday off and drove down. i stopped in west lafayette for lunch, and then continuted to mom and dad’s place. they didn’t know i was coming. surprise!

saturday i went to matt plomin’s wedding reception in lafayette. the wedding was in the caribbean, or central america, or somewhere, so i didn’t go to that. the reception was great, and ended up at the local irish pub. it was really nice seeing and catching up with some friends i haven’t seen in a while.

this past thursday jake and abbie came up. we all went out friday night. we started at ripley’s for supper, where i was saddened to learn that they have changed their menu, making it more “refined” and and less what i was looking for. after that, we bounced around a bit and ended up at the signature room on the 95th floor of the john hancock building having way over-priced drinks.
