Another Date Night!

When I originally started my doctoral journey, I told myself I would have one night free to do nothing. I targeted Friday nights. This Friday, I would execute the plan, which was to re-watch movie Shang-Chi and the Eternals via Disney+. Also, Friday was National Pastrami Day so I knew what my dinner would be! Work torpedoed the plan because I had to complete a task which took a lot longer than I thought. I took a micro-nap which turned into a mini-nap. I started doing some small projects around the house. Went to Red Robin to have a quick craft beer. In the same parking lot was the deli. Google says restaurant closes at 9PM. I get there at 8:10, just in time to read the hand-written sign saying now closing at 8PM. Walked two stores down to get Cold Stone ice cream. Dinner was In-N-Out 3x3 animal style hamburger and fries. I got home and watched Shang-Chi, which was better than my theatre experience. Fell asleep in my zero-gravity chair. Overall, a good date night.
