September 12, 2009

the best one

Woke up at 7. On a weekend. Three fried eggs, and some brownie left over from last night. Green line to Government Center, then the blue to the Aquarium. It was raining a lot, but we had an umbrella.

Faneuil Hall for a few hours, in the rain. Gyro for lunch. Thanks, Lance’s Mommy. Back on the T. Wait 20 minutes for a train at Government Center, and the one that eventually shows is jammmmpacked and goes out of service three stops from home.

Mailbox. Teaching contract in the mail, with a mysterious 800 dollars added to the yearly salary.

Rejoicing! Also – discovering that our door’s buzzer doesn’t work, potato salad, finishing some books for class, and the arrival of

THE COMCAST MAN!

Caught the end of the U of M game and spent a little time on the phone with a Comcast techie from Canada who asked me if my router was curvaceous. Then out to Staples (graph paper, router), Borders & Barnes and Noble (planner fail), and home. Where Season 5 of LOST finally awaited us, as well as wireless internet, cable television, and a beer.

Life is well.
