'I'm not the kind of man/ Who tends to socialize'

Jing, Ayca and I got killer seats in the cafeteria today. They were right by the back window, so we had a great riverside view. After work, I walked down (or up? It goes east-west!) 42nd street and did some window-shopping, then Jing and I happened to pass by the New York Public Library. We had about an hour to kill before the SI Alumni Reception, so we went into the building. We ran into Leslie, who's doing her ASB project there, so she was able to give us a tour and show us what one needs to see when one visits the NYPL.

After taking pictures all over the inside and outside of the library, the three of us went to the reception, where there were about five alumni total. Very disappointing. So instead of mingling and networking, everyone just ate millions of appetizers (yum, sesame chicken) and got drunk. Nnnick introduced me to the wonder that is the White Russian, which made me want to cuddle with everyone. Hooray, another source of milk/calcium in my diet!

Everyone who's cool then proceeded to a bar called the Forbidden City on the Lower East Side. Although I had been cut off at two White Russians (and numerous sips of Nnnick's) at the last bar, I decided enough time and walking and things had passed that I could have another. I ordered a Lychee Mimosa, which was sort of like a kir royale (champagne and crème de cassis) with a lychee in the bottom of the glass. It sounded maaaarrrrvelous and it was. I lurrrrved it but eventually it was gone and it was late and it was time to go home.

Nnnick accompanied me back and we decided to try walking and taking the subway rather than a cab. It was an interesting feat of navigation but we weren't really in a rush once we got underground and warm, so after several line-changes, we made it back. I went to bed and got up... about four and a half hours later. Ah, spring break! When do we get a chance to catch up on our sleep again?
