Really glad I checked the syllabus for my English class, because I somehow had convinced myself that my research paper was due Tuesday, when in reality it's not due until Friday. Thank god, because I've got some reading I need to do for French and Women's Studies today, and I am sick as hell. It may just be allergies because I'm not running a fever, but I feel like crap on a cracker. Luckily I have tons of tea and soup here, and I loaded up on vitamin c this morning. I'm about ready to melt into the couch right now.

The masquerade party was fun. I met some nice people and we took some silly photo booth pictures. Food was good and there was an open bar. The DJ played a ton of late 80's/early 90's r&b which I found funny. A big crowd of women that I'm guessing were coworkers of my friend got extremely trashed and started grinding all over each other, which in combination with the music choice made it feel a lot like middle school dances I used to go to. So, there's that. All in all though, it was a great time, I got a lot of compliments on my dress, everyone was pretty friendly and I got a free meal out of it. Oh, and there was a caricature artist there that drew our picture and made us both look EXTREMELY attractive. It was a nice bonus.
