Me: on Ferris wheel 2012-09-09
I have been exceedingly remiss about posting lately. Those of you who suffer through my long postings are probably grateful.

Had a nice day so far today. Met treacle_well for brunch at Sound Bites (which I have mizarchivist to thank for introducing me to, and which has very good food). Then we enjoyed the sun and the warmth (and the slush :-) by taking a walk, wandering through a little park near Powderhouse Circle and around the neighbourhood. The park is where the actual powderhouse stands, and I wanted to take a picture of it, but I discovered I’d left my nifty new little USB-key-cum-digital-camera plugged into the computer at home. (The userpic for this entry was taken with that camera. [Edit: Not any more; I retired that userpic.]) We mostly talked about books and reading, and the company and the sunshine made for a very nice day.

Then I went shopping, so that by now when I’ve gotten home, it’s too late to get done much of the cleaning and organizing I’d hoped to get done today, but I suppose it will still be there tomorrow. C’est la vie, Gracie.

When I was going to NU we always said, "if you can see the Pru you're almost home." It was the lie we told ourselves when we had a god awful long walk and the T had already shut down or we couldn't afford the fare. Now I want a slice from that place across the street from the Y that's been there forever with the same red/orange plastic tables. :)

Oh, I didn’t realize you went to NU! Cool. That photo was taken from the top of the NU parking garage (the old one, not the one they just built a couple years ago).

Boston House of Pizza? Cappy’s? Don’t remember the red/orange tables off the top of my head, but I think I’ve eaten at least once at all the pizza places around there.

Was Moby Dick (the nifty Persian place) there when you were there?

I was there back in '84 for a very brief stay (summer & fall). My grades were sufficient to stay, but not sufficient to justify the debt. Let's just say I enjoyed being in the big city too much. :)

I think it's Cappy's or Cappy's II. I don't know if Moby Dick was around then or not. I was pretty much a pizza and burgers person in those days.

glad you liked it. I miss eating there- It really is best to get there as early in the day as possible (at least on weekends)- and I rarely am up early enough to travel to Somerville/Me'fe' for breakfast.
What did you have? :)

I had the stuffed French1 Toast with cream cheese and apricot preserves, and turkey sausage. It was yummy. I don’t remember what treacle_well got, I’m afraid.

We got there right at noon, and there was a line, but the wait wasn’t too long.

1French toast, not Freedom toast. Vive la France! Liberté, égalité, fraternité! Aux armes, citoyens! Take that, Donald Rumsfeld!
