Today was a very peaceful, relaxing day. My site visit group came over for tea in the afternoon, and we discussed the outline for some of our papers on the different places we've visited so far. It was fun to just hang out over cups of tea and talk about the history of this amazing place.
Right now, we're all cooking our dinner. Actually some of my roommates are cooking and I'm the designated DJ for tonight. We're making stir fry with a fruit salad and curry cheese fries (apparently a very Irish dish... go figure). It smells delicious in here. My professor and his wife, the Cosgroves, are coming over for dinner tonight. We even bought three liters of Coke for the special occasion!
Tonight, all the girls are sleeping over in our apartment! We're going to watch Penelope and Pride & Prejudice, make facial masks out of oatmeal and bananas or some crazy concoction like that, make chocolate chip cookies, and just hang out. Tomorrow, I'm making pancakes with Melissa for everyone. It should be a blast! But we do have to get up early in order to go to the Aran Islands tomorrow, our first outing since coming here to Galway.
