Back home. Whew. I don't think I got a full night's sleep in Boston.
Saw Scott Pilgrim vs. The World with haplo3k & co.
Had burgers and frappes (say: frap, not frappe') at Bartley's with haplo3k + Wumpus.
Repurchased a book of Kipling verse that I used to own and lent to someone. It's been expanded since!
Met co-workers & my boss. They're mostly good folk.
Walked the Freedom trail
Visited the USS Constitution -- something of a disappointment. Not much of its glorious history is on display there.
Caught up with etarip. Inherited sunglasses.
Fully grokked Boston drivers.
Seriously -- I think I like Boston drivers almost as much as LA drivers.
On a side note -- and the original reason for this post -- I did a little reading about aurochs, passenger pigeons, and other extinct critters. There's a group attempting to clone aurochs from bone DNA and I realized that I fully support this. After all, a great number of species went extinct because they had a desirable quality. One such quality: they were tasty!
That kinda implies that the critters left around are the ones that weren't as tasty. I see no reason why (relatively, in some cases) ancient man should be the only ones allowed to know the taste of those critters.

i hear SPvTW is pretty great. should i go?
also you forgot to mention the AWESOME you coded for me :D :D :D
I super dug it in spite of the fact that I dislike the one character that Michael Cera plays in every film. This may be because I read & liked the comics (and they do a pretty good adaptation).
It may also be because I play tons of video games and chuckle a bit when someone is defeated and a bunch of coins are dropped. It's a movie that really doesn't involve brain cells. It involves having had the sort of childhood (or adolescence/adulthood/whatever) where you played video games like Super Mario Bros, Street Fighter, etc. and enjoying when someone shamelessly strokes it off along with the other 30 people's childhoods in a dark theater.
I think you'll like it. gorthok
will almost certainly appreciate it. I don't believe it will be the best movie ever for either of you. In my mind, it ranks up with Speed Racer
for awesomeness though.
I guess I did neglect to mention that awesomeness, but it's like deepthought. It is only a fraction of the awesomeness to comen...

yeah, one of my geekier friends (http://teamubermensch.podbean.com
) loooooved it & suggested we go. i probably will, dunno about joe.
i like michael cera now that i've gotten over how much he looks like an ex of mine (in the face only).
seriously though, you're SO awesome.
I'm somewhat less assured of my awesomeness, but it does please me to have done a small amount of right in the world. 8)
