My favorite part about coming home twice a year (besides the family time) is being able to see my old high school friends. Everyone's spread all over the country, and it's great to catch up. I wish I got to see them a lot more often, but I suppose that distance makes the heart grow fonder. Some of these people have been my friends for as long as I've lived in Eden Prairie. Diane was my first friend when I moved here at age 10.
Now most of us are working elsewhere or in grad school. Anant has an interview at Duke coming up! Diane is in her last year. Steven and Andrew are working in NYC while Pritika and Alyssa are in Ann Arbor.
Everyone is doing well and seemingly happy, and I'm so glad to see that our lives have improved significantly since high school. I wonder what our 10-year reunion will bring. :)

While Dan was here, my part-time job was annoying enough to schedule me for a 6-hour shift when Dan's trip was only 48 hours. Lame, right? Courtney was sweet enough to cover my shift last minute... To thank her, I took her out to lunch in Eastern Market. We went to Ted's Bulletin.
Split a chocolate milkshake...
We also got some calamari with banana peppers and sweet potato chips. Those banana peppers were great breaded and fried! Who knew? I ordered red rice and beans with some sausage and fish (that was a LOT of food), and each of us also ordered a cocktail.
Mango sorbet :)

Dan is back in town visiting for the weekend, and I brought him to go get some falafel brunch before our late afternoon frisbee games...
