I'm actually feeling like snowballs and/or frisbees at Boston Common. Anyone?

You couldn't have said that before, could you? ¬¬"
Behind my house there is a huge field, full of snow, and it's quite gigantic.
Maybe we could do it here! But I don't know. Let me know, I need hot chocolate.

Scratch all that. I feel like doing something, anything, but have no idea what nor where. Any suggestions?

Dude, nudity is hilarious. How can it not improve stand-up comedy?

That said, I work until 10, and am usually rather exhausted afterwards, so probably won't be doing this.

Hey, I'm the Staples guy you nice young people terrorized tonight. Thanks for making work not suck.

I'm definitely attending tomorrow, and I'm just throwing myself out there for the world to scrutinize.

I'll be bringing stylish pens for all the ladies to admire and swoon for.

After that amazing display of kickassness, I'm definitely going to stick around.

And come into Staples at Harvard Square, I'll provide pens for the masses.

I shall likely harrass you for pens at some point. Or other fun office products that lead secret lives as art supplies. Especially since my apartment is a mere 10 minute walk from your place of work.

Unfortunately(?) I am in California for spring break at the moment. Thus I will be missing out on all Cambervillain activities that take place this weekend (until Sunday, at least), as well as harassing any poor, unsuspecting Staples employees. Perhaps another day.

Well, regardless, it'd be quite a nice way to pass the time in that hellhole.

Besides, looking for stylish pens and searching for cake.

According to some things I've heard, you may spend an awfully long time searching for that cake...

Wait, there is cake at Staples? I have been grossly misinformed. The question now becomes, is it cake that can measure up to Bakemaster's cake? I have my doubts.

Ours mainly consists of recycled ink cartridges and acid free paper.

We do have paper clip frosting though, mostly for flavor.

We really should just leave a cake at staples, give faith to the non-believers.

We have one ticket left for Eddy Izzard on April 29th. We'll start the bidding at $60.
This is a ticket for the Orpheum theatre and you will be sitting with me, sandry and skippy.

Pillow Fight was awesome, though I left after fifteen minutes. Had to run home and get ready for guests!

Slighly late notice, but, if anyone is in the Porter Square area, I'll be hanging out in Simon's Cafe, right on Mass Ave till about 9PM tonight.

Just seeing if anyone else is in the same "Wow, I'm obnoxiously bored and want something nice to do" mood.

Good coffee, and me! That can't be too bad...

EDIT: Ended alone, but, I thought it might be a nice idea for the future.

I'm trying this again, I'm going to be going to Simon's Coffee House on Mass Ave, right near Porter Square.

I'm thinking tonight at 7, if anyone is interested, it'd be really nice to meet some of you.

I PROMISE I WON'T STAB YOU.

No, wait, I won't. I will be asleep. And though I can stab people in my sleep, I can't order coffee in my sleep. I'm still catching up on all the sleep I lost this weekend, so I probably will not be there. But I will CONSIDER being there.
