Random Travel

  • When ordering a steak in Texas, you say medium, you get beef sushi.
  • Wuss level sudoku only available in the Dallas Fort Worth Airport book store. All levels of crossword available.
  • That was not Ghost Rider on the in-flight movie. It was The Ghost Writer. No wonder I didn't see the guy's head burst into flames.

Random Boston

  • You know a hotel is swank when you can actually remove the hangars from the clothing rack.
  • Fire alarms and tenth floor != fun.
  • South Bay is painfully suburban but sports a Target for those essentials you just forgot to bring. O_O
  • Otenth knows all the good restaurants in town.
  • Legal Seafood is merely 'good'. Want yah chowdah, theyah ya go. But ask Otenth first. West coaster bias for really strong Pacific salmon applies. YMMV.
  • Maggiano's is 'quite pleasing'.
  • Duck Tours are fun.
  • Massachusetts has a weird lack of laws on some things. No seat belt law. Requirement to buy and operate a yacht: A chequebook.
  • Lotsa great history.
  • Lotsa lovely old and new architecture.
  • The city feels 'smallish' despite its population. Maybe it's just the neighbourly feel to it.

I Like Boston

Nerd friendly the way San Fran is freak friendly. :) I'll add this to the list of places I could live.
Architecture is near orgasmic. I believe I'll be spending more time exploring the city than in SLCC events.
That, and the non-rhotic accent is fascinating to listen to.
