yay, I'm alive.
I'm sick of server not working properly, so I'm considering owning the computer and renting space/bandwidth. but I'll save geeky posts for their own space.
I'm goin to Boston!!!
As most of you know, the Meg got into Brandeis, so she's going to visit and I'm going to ensure that I could live in Boston if that's her option of choice.
I'll be getting there on the 19th around 2pm, and need to kill some time before she gets done her doctoral visiting if anyone's free that afternoon.
Hanging out till sunday, we got us a hotel for two nights. ooo... room service...
should be fun! I'm excited.
anyone have any good boston maps online so I can get a sense of the city?

The 19th, eh? Oh hell - I'll probably be visiting my girl in NYC. Hm. I'll keep you posted - how long will you be here? I'll be back on Saturday the 20th.
we're there the 19th - 21st.

Cool. Hm - my Mom is gonna be in town on Sat, sadly so I'll probably be busy hanging out with her.
I'll email you my digits though, just in case y'all need a guide :)

mapquest or expedia come to mind.
been there, done that.
it'd be nice to find something a little more real, like where neato stuff is, etc.

some good touristy things I've done in Boston were to wander around the Public Garden park that is featured in "Make Way for Ducklings" children's book of fame -- they have a larger-than-life statue of the mama duck and her little babies Lack Quack Mack Jack whatever whatever in line behind her, and it's a really nice park. the neighborhood of North Bennett St school where I applied for the bookbinding program is nice too, near the italian section -- they have great gelati -- but also right down the block from the Old North church, to whose steeple Paul Revere looked, for lanterns one if by land, two if by sea and all that. there's a great old cemetary near there, too. The harbor is nice to stroll around, look at the water and boats and things. the historic Beacon Hill district is lovely, too, kind of spooky like in colonial williamsburg, where you could be walking down the street in another century. all satisfying touristy things.
