I should totally be asleep right now, as it is five am and I am incredibly tired, but I know if I don't, I won't get around to it later, and it is probably worth posting about. Jo and I went into Boston today, and managed to not get totally lost finding the Riverside station, despite missing the exit at first because we were talking (note to people visiting from outside the area - the Riverside T station is easy to get to, has a huge lot, and ridiculously cheap parking). Headed into Boston on the T with a crowd of Red Sox fans going to a game, and decided to hit the Museum of Science first. We basically stayed until closing, because the exhibit halls are awesome, and while I've seen a lot of it before, it's been a while, and the MoS never gets old.
We left to grab a quick bite to eat at the Cambridgeside Galleria, and then did the requisite throwing of a tea bag into Boston Harbor (okay, the Charles River, but it's close enough, damnit). And yes, there will be photos with a slightly more coherent explanation later. We then headed back to the museum to see an IMAX showing - Greece, which I thought was okay. I'm not so big on the history ones, but it was the best thing showing, and Jo liked it, so it's all good. We opted to explore a little before finding dinner, and wandered through the MIT campus, played super-cheap DDR (and augh, I suck now, I'm so out of practice), and up through Central Square, where we got drinks at the Starbucks.
Then we finally headed up to the North End, and after a little exploring (I'm used to being in Boston with people who know the city better than me, honestly), we found a nice little Italian restaurant, and Jo learned that at real Italian restaurants, the portions are huge. I've known this since about age six, so I had no trouble finishing my pasta (fetticcine alfredo, mmm), but we brought half of her's home. We did a bit more wandering, and discussed a whole bunch of S_F stuff (which may end up deserving it's own post later, because I <3 S_F), and continued discussing it on the T and then in part on the car ride home, among other things.
Then I mostly just played the original RE for a while and came to the conclusion that Chris is a huge idiot, Wesker's voice actor is the only one who isn't a total moron, and nobody can escape the power of Capcom's terrible one-liners.
