A Final Cantabrigian Brunch

The final Reunion event this weekend was brunch at a dining hall in the Quad. Man, the Quad is far! To this day, I'm still thankful I lived down by the river (albeit not in a van like Matt Foley).

Mr. Monkey literally got a taste of my old life. The food in our dining halls is not that bad for cafeteria food, but it certainly wasn't worth photographing.

I was a shiny sweaty mess again because of the unbearable heat and humidity, but here are some pics with my besties, along with pics of us back in college.

After brunch, Mr. Monkey and I hung out with NYC Mayor for a bit. She had a Zipcar, which Mr. Monkey and I thought was the coolest thing because we had recently learned of this service from another friend! What a coincidence!

We dropped off NYC Mayor's little Matrix and had a nice walk to the Square. It was great catching up with NYC Mayor, and our trek was rather enjoyable even though I was pretty much sopping wet with sweat by the time we sent NYC Mayor on her merry way to her bus back home.

Before we headed to the airport, Mr. Monkey indulged my need to walk around my old campus one last time.

And this concludes my Reunion weekend, unless you count our 15.5-hour ordeal in trying to get home from Boston amidst bad weather and countless delays.

I don't count that because that was absolutely miserable.

    You. Me. Sweat-twinsies.
