Chick flicks, chatter and chocolate fondue.

I spent the evening with a different group of girlfriends. Friends from "The University" actually. I was dreading it a tiny bit because we have never socialized outside of official school events (which I typically organized) but this was dinner and chick flicks and wine and fondue. And waffles which, obviously, I did not eat. I had a really good time. There was much loud talking at a very rapid pace which is always a good sign among women. My tea ladies and undergrad friends do the same and it's tough to keep up sometimes. Rarely does a conversation ever get finished. But there was much bonding and chocolate and I'm totally stuffed. I think I ate all of my calories for the week tonight. I hope we do it again some time.

Tomorrow I am going to the office to hear my old mentor talk about sustainability stuff. I'm hoping it's packed full of useful information that I can use in my next job application for "sustainability expert". I know very little about "sustainability". I should remember to take notes. I'm really hoping he doesn't give a dumbed down talk. I need high level stuff with jargon and conceptual, implementable ideas. Maybe my expectations are too high. The last sustainability presentation was pretty crap. At least we're getting lunch.
