some sugary sweets

Tonight was spectaculicious! Maryla and Michelle came home with two monster bags full of pastries, bagels and bread. It was sweets heaven! Three weeks ago Ari had this brilliant idea of the local bakery chain that carries the most scrumptious sweets,Au Bon Pain, what they do with their bread at the end of the day. It turns out they just throw it away so they offered to give her the leftovers. A couple of my housemates make it a priority to go there at least once a week around 7pm to stock up on carbs. That pretty much covers breakfast, lunch sandwiches and dessert. The best part is that it's all free! Talk about being smart and resourceful, and soon enough-- fat!

Pigging out to DC's most delectable and mouthwatering jellyrolls, scones, danishes, muffins, crumbcakes, croissants, and macaroons and then watching Y tu Mamá También was oh, so heavenly and hilarious!

Now Maryla is attempting to teach us capoiera, which dictionary.com defines as an Afro-Brazilian dance that incorporates self-defense mamaneuvers. And apparently involves doing handstands against the wall, or so demonstrates my English housemate. Think of breakdancing in its most intense form with a lot of discipline, acrobats and chanting.
