stuff about swing city Holy crap, this place has been right under my nose! I used to live in Newton and had no idea this place existed. Now I need to work on my swing dancing ;P Yeah, I have a hate/hate relationship with the T. Mostly because it runs so damn late. Just so you know, there's a bus th...

Possibility for Friday night, if anyone is around that early in the wekeend: Swing City . Live jazz, swing dancing, lesson before if needed (always nice to brush up a bit). That night, the Toni Lynn Washington Band is playing. Never heard of 'em, but the description makes them sound good! Boston's v...

I was wondering what would happen if I just stayed on the bus this morning. Sadly I knew it would just bring me to the watertown lot and the bus would shortly there after pass my stop again and I'd probably just get a little extra harry potter read. But what if an incredibly interesting person got ...

Salem is good. For food. And beer. (Hmm, maybe we'll head to Salem Beer Works for lunch today!) Yes. Very very yes. I love that place, especially the week up to St. Patrick's Day, when they have their Irish Cream Stout. If you're lookin' for quaint New England coastal that is accessable by train, t...

Also, "Aerith" is a ridiculous sounding name. Maybe because it's "Aeris," with a lisp? There were only two reasons why her death bothered me: 1. I could no longer have Cloud running around with two women 2. She was my full-time healer Crono's death bothered me far more my first ...

I have only programmed in lisp once, and that was as part of a course where we did a new language every two weeks. The lisp project was to build a lego mindstorms robot (the old yellow kind), and program it to find its way through a simple maze. I finished my program early, so I also programmed the ...

Eww.
Some words just bring out different feelings in me. Melancholy sounds cheerful, but that's not the meaning, so I get thrown off by it.

I HATE those blue shells with a passion! My friends and I always say "Hello, Alan!" when we launch 'em, for some unknown reason. Alan must have been a real bastard to someone at some point... Anyway, I once tried to avoid a blue shell launched by a friend with typical fanfare by intentiona...

A big-screen showing of The Princess Bride would be wonderful.

Another option (for those of us over 21) could be a Sam Adams brewery tour, including free beer at the end! Well, under 21 can still attend, just no free beer. Info here: http://www.samueladams.com/contact_tour.aspx
