I now know what people do with free time when they are not working full-time and in graduate school.  It goes a little something like what I did this weekend:

-Saw "Bruno" and "The Hangover".
-Finished a novel.
-Set up my new iPod.
-Made three new recipes from two new cookbooks.
-Slept in.
-Wandered around Georgetown.
-Ate tangy yogurt topped with raspberries, mango and blueberries.
-Cleaned up and organized my bookshelves.
-Wrote in my journal.
-Caught up with old friends over the phone.
-Walked through the Dupont Farmers Market with a Teaism Japanese Sweet Green Tea and purchased one single perfect peach.
-Perused the bookstore.
-Watched really bad reality TV.
-Grocery shopped.
-Took a long nap.

Mmmm.  I think I can learn to like free time.

Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend :) Can't wait to hear about the recipes - I noticed on twitter you mentioned two vegan cookbooks I have been eyeing (Vegan Soul Kitchen & VEgan Table). I still eat meat, but am currently on a no-dairy diet, among other things, to figure out if I had a dairy allergy. So vegan cookbooks are totally interesting me these days :)

I'm going to post one from "The Vegan Table" later this afternoon. Such a fantastic cookbook! "Vegan Soul Kitchen" leaves a little bit to be desired (though there are some really good recipes in it), but it was $11 with my coupon, so I'll take it! Ha. "Veganomicon" is another good one.

I am about 98% vegetarian. I still eat some fish and I eat some dairy. I just like vegan cookbooks because I can make/eat all of the recipes inside, which is a rare occurrence for me!
