Me: on Ferris wheel 2012-09-09
Had a great time at surrealestate’s watching the Red Sox lose. She was very patient with all my questions: “Why wasn’t that a foul?” “Who’s the guy standing behind the guy batting?” and so on.

Afterwards, watched some of The Daily Show, which I’d never seen (beyond the occasional clip quoted on a political blog). Unfortunately, I didn’t realize how late it was, and I missed the last Braintree train. Fortunately, there are shuttle busses from the last Ashmont train to Quincy. This is why I am still up — I just got home.

Oh, and plumtreeblossom wrote a much better narrative of our DC trip than mine. (I still intend to post pictures, but I don’t see when I’m going to get a chance to do that before the weekend.)

Eep, sorry to hear you missed your train! But glad you got home nonetheless.

I'm useless watching sports because all I do is look at the players' sexy butts and ask questions about their personal lives. But I'm happy you had a good time. Bummer about them Sox, eh? :-) *kiss*

Hated to see the Sox lose. I'm a Mets fan, they managed to implode in spectacular fashion at the end of the regular season and not make the playoffs. So now I want Boston to go to the World Series and beat Colorado. They need to win on Thursday or they're done.

the Daily Show is great. Almost worth missing a train over, although probably not consistently.
