i just had the most funnest night. kate lives in durham but because we are both lazy bums this is the 1st i've seen of her all summer (which sucks, cuz in like a week she's leaving for cleveland and then new zealand for study abroad next semester. so it'll be awhile). we hung out and had pizza and watched gangs of new york (deranged! i think i want to see it again so i can pay more attention) and talked til 4am, when it was time to bring her home. i had to do some car shuffling to get mine out of the driveway, which went somewhat worse than it probably should have, but eventually i escaped. all in all, a wonderful evening.
