After getting to school I got started on my work, then left to meet Ang. We would be having lunch at MIT Sloan (School of Management) today.. I have never had lunch there as I usually bring my lunch. I am looking forward to it!

Arrived at MIT Sloan for lunch… People are outside because the temperature has risen, sun is peeking through the clouds… Deep breath.. Ahhhhh.. just beautiful!

She’s here so I head in to the building…

The lunch options in Sloan are unbelieveable! You guys know I love food.. the food is really good here! So many options! Ang and I got different things to eat and shared it all… This is an Italian panini I think.. The potato chips I could have done without.. They weren’t too good..

Ang had a kinda of stir-fried, medley of color, deliciousness and everything! Because that’s how she rolls.. LOL.. The mango salsa was really good… everything was! By the time we talked and laughed.. we had leftovers and dessert for later..

I have found in life that sometimes you (or me) meet someone who you know, but you know you don’t really know them.. then there are others I don’t know but I feel like I have known forever. Ang is the latter, I feel like I have known her forever! We had a good laugh about animals and our surprising shared love of something strange. I cannot remember how the discussion got there, but turns out we have a shared loved of Super Grover.. and a desire to be him if we were super-heroes! LMAO!!! How strange?!!! I think we like that he was just a normal person, trying to help where he could.. I must say though he irritated me at times.. but I loved him. My very first doggie was named Grover.

We also laugh about my plan and desire (not yet realized) to fight a monkey… Before moving to India in 2008, that was my plan… but it never worked out.. Why do I want to fight a monkey? Because I think they’re cute, and though I may get the worst beating of my life, I think a monkey is the only animal that would have as much fun as I would in this fight.. Strange but true… One of them entered my apartment in Ahmedabad… went into the pantry and stole some nuts and channa (garbanzo beans).. but I wasn’t at home to plan for that duel.. LOL… He missed out! LOL..

After our lunch we head back to Main Campus… Ang is working on her thesis, me on several final projects simultaneously…
