Well, I am officially in Boston with the Aiming Low girls and HP. and *sigh* I am kind of all upset that I chose to NOT go to college in Boston because ohmigod, this city is so lovely. and tomorrow we get to go do all this fun stuff at Staples, like grope all the pretty laptops (for which I am currently in the market, because my laptop?  is such a biatch…crashing every 15 minutes, pretending it doesn’t know what an apostrophe is, that little THINKING circle that it does. hate.) and printers and school supplies (dear god, I love me some school supplies) and then get our party on and eat finger foods that sound super fancy but that none of us can pronounce.


I got to fly here with the lovely Anissa, our ringleader extraordinairre (only she probably doesn’t have a top hat or a whip. well, maybe she has a whip, but I haven’t seen it. YET). I didn’t meet up with Anissa until the gate area, which meant that she had to miss the exhange I had with the dude at security.


um. okay. I wanted to be all, “yeah, I guess if she reads my twitter stream then she knows.” but instead, since this dude was working SECURITY AT AN AIRPORT and I didn’t really want to end up being detained in a box or, you know, deported back to Canada, or something, I decided to just smile and wave.

Just like the dude at the baggage carousel who decided to just smile and wave when Anissa was all worried about the HEADS IN HER SUITCASE. but not these kind of heads.


Just like the bartender at Cheesecake Factory decided to just smile and wave when we were all sitting at the bar with our heads focused on nothing but our iphones and blackberries and when I chose to skip dinner and go straight to dessert.


Just like we all did when we watched an cnn-watching ugly naked guy get his, um, naked self dressed.

And just like my roommates did when I explained to them about my little, um, not-able-to-use-the-bathroom-away-from-home issues and that 10:00pm tonight is for getting my Don Draper on. ahem. and when I totally hogged the ethernet cable hook-up thingie because our hotel doesn’t have wi-fi (Boston Sheraton FAIL) and when I told them that I have never had a frosty at Wendy’s and that I pretty much don’t know any single blogger that they ever talk about. ever.

  1. Hahaha, nice security guy. I guess he knows he can pretty much say whatever he wants because of you say anything? Yeah, you’re missing your flight. Jerk.

    Sounds like you had a grand ol’ time. Aren’t frosty’s yummy? Try dipping a french fry in it next time. I swear it tastes better than it sounds. Promise.

  2. Ha! I was around the corner at the Colonnade the other day. Check out Brasserie Jo — the food is awesome. And go have ice cream at JP Licks and then shop on Newberry street.

  7. My issues end when I’m in my own hotel room because then it at least feels like home temporarily. Of course, if I had roommates, that might change things.

  8. School supplies! I am a school supplies whore! Now I want to go school supply shopping. And have a frosty. And that dessert. And find out why she has all those heads on a stick.

  9. You need to post a picture of those boots. I must know what would warrant such a comment.

    I don’t know why I don’t ever just skip dinner for dessert. That is truly genius.

  10. I love your ad!

    You’ve never had a Frosty? Mmmm, now I want a Frosty.

    Have a great time! Wish you were coming to Chicago instead!

    Also, at least the TSA didn’t take your baby. (I’m SORRY, I couldn’t help myself!)

  11. *smile* *wave* because that is all I can do from here as “Teh Awesomeness known as the aiminglow crew” descends upon my hometown without a tour guide, whom I wish were me. (my computer is fine. my problem with sentence structure is all me)

  12. I wish I was there with you! Sounds like fun and you’ve never had a frosty? Where have you been, under a rock?

  13. Thats a roommate fail. I have a hub she could have brought so all could share the internets.

    I stayed there once, nice place. Walking distance to Fenway although it’s not being used now…

  17. Frostys (Frosties? Hmmm…) are magical, and laced with addictive chemicals, I think.

  18. Ooooh, I’m jealous! Not just that you’re with the Aiming Low girls, but that you’re in Boston! I’ve always wanted to go to Boston, and at this time of year, too. Hope you’re having tons of fun!
