A quiet night in New Jersey last night with Dave -- the best kind of night, really. We went to dinner at Carraba's and then went home and watched two episodes of "Top Chef." Both of us are terminally exhausted this week and we struggled to stay awake. Dave failed, but I made it through! Consequently I'm in the unheard-of position of being one episode ahead of him!

This morning we both overslept a bit and Dave ran out of time to get me to the train station -- because when you've got to be in class, you can't just wander in late to work. He dropped me off at a Dunkin' Donuts and I got a cab to the train. I've never had to do that before, but it was easy -- and it made me realize that I need to check out the bus schedules to New York from East Brunswick, because when we're crunched for time like that, the bus may be the better option.

Off to D.C. this weekend for my annual fall visit!

  1. You're getting to be quite the suburban commuter! It's always nice to have options.

    Bring your umbrella...

  2. Today in DC is perfect for sleeping late. It's cold, dark and rainy. I am loving it! I did sleep in - till almost 8:00 a.m. This is one of the advantages of being dogless.

  3. Carrabas ... I love the Chicken Bryan, Texas. Oh, and I love your photo and post too. xoxo.

  4. ironies of ironies, I am in nyc this weekend, so missing the gathering in dc much to my disappointment, have fun and say howdy from me to the dc bloggyhood - nyc promises to be wet, wet and wet - good for sleeping in and our friend's flat we're staying in harlem is surprisingly quiet....the forecast isn't good for photo safaris but good for museum hopping
