12:00PM Building 4 Cafe
1 box of salmon cucumber sushi (12 half-sized pieces), 6 oz. of Odwalla Soymilk Chai… soooo tasty! You all know that I love Chai anything, but it tastes great combined with soymilk, especially since it hides the strong soymilk flavor. Plus, I usually get a small allergic reaction to soymilk, puffy lips and itchy throat type of thing, but today I was just fine. Yum. I saved the rest of it in the fridge at lab, so I'll be having it tomorrow for breakfast or something.
6:00PM Baker Courtyard – Annual Piano Drop Event with BBQ
2 hot dogs (no buns), 1 bbq chicken breast (4 oz), few bites of pasta salad and potato salad, half a boiled corn on the cob, 1 piece of watermelon, 1 chocolate cookie, 1/2 piece of brownie. The bbq was pretty good, a nice change of pace from the regular dining, and also all-you-can-eat, though I didn't have room left for seconds of the barbecued items. I liked the bbq chicken breast the best, since it had a nice bbq sauce on top that was a good blend of sweet and sour. The chicken was also not too overcooked, which was pleasant. Pasta and potato salads were so-so, but provided a little variety from the meat. The watermelon was refreshing, though I wish I hadn't eaten the cookie and brownie half :/ The bbq foods (especially the hot dogs) were so salty that it left me craving sweets to balance the taste. Afterwards, I brought back a couple more slices of watermelon for a snack later on. I'm excited that watermelon season is almost upon us. It's my favorite summer fruit!
Oh and not to be forgotten, was the actual event that I attended. Baker dorm has an annual event called the "Piano Drop", in which an old piano is thrown off of the roof of Baker dorm, onto the courtyard below, as a tribute to our "drop date", which is the last day that you can drop a class during a semester. That day happens to be today. It's a pretty big event for us, the Boston news crew come to cover the event, complete with a helicopter lol, and there are police to make sure everything is safe. I've gone every year to see the piano drop, but this is the first year that I've stood close enough to see the piano fall and shatter to bits before my eyes. It was a lot of fun! Here are action shots of the actual piano dropping and smashing into an old arcade machine (photos shot by another Baker resident):
Personally I think it's pretty awesome that they are able to place the game machine exactly in the spot that the piano falls on. Imagine how disappointing it would have been if the piano missed the machine haha.
