the epi party was not bad for a planned social gathering of academic people. not that it was a rocking party or anything like that, but it was nice to see a bunch of different people in the same place having pleasant interactions.
after that, rachel and i went to the alibi room to stake out a table for paula's birthday. we ended up sitting there for over an hour for the rest of the group to show. it all worked out in the end, but by the end of the night, i definitely felt like i was running on borrowed time.
we thought about going elsewhere, but just decided to call it a night.
maybe i'll sleep past eight tomorrow?
