I’d not seen my friend Beth (BMac) since our Peace Corps days… 4 years ago! She’s a librarian and she’s killed a goat with her bare hands, so yeah, she’s hardcore. I <3 her, and we had an amazing 3 days together. I’d never been to Boston before, and being the patriotic American that I am (and often accused of not being), I was excited to walk the Freedom Trail. It’s amazing how many Starbuck’s Coffee shops there are along that red path.
Other highlights of my holiday within a holiday included:
- meeting Timothy Chlamydia Hatcher, my almost namesake;
- seeing Mamma Mia with the person I’d most want to see it with in the whole-wide world;
- and replacing my dead iBook (RIP) with a new MacBook, plus getting a free iPod Touch… Yay teachers!
I was also introduced to the website: go fug yourself (http://gofugyourself.celebuzz.com). It’s fabulously written by Alexis Carrington (aka Heather) and Brenda Walsh (aka Jessica).
On the down side, Beth and I had burritos yesterday before going to see Mamma Mia at a place called Fajitas & ’Ritas.
The Margaritas were quite nice, but, come on, what kind of glass is this?
