Before I quit my teaching gigs, I went to an orientation at one of the community colleges I was working at. I met up with my not-to-be fellow instructors and somehow we got on the discussion of blogs and blogging. One of the tenured ladies (note small hint of bitterness at the term "tenured") scoffed a bit, commenting that she didn't understand why anyone would want to read about what someone else had for breakfast. In the spirit of annoying that woman off and in the spirit that our readers actually do care about our daily lives, we thought (yes, Ed & I are writing this together) we'd update you on some of the more mundane happenings in Boston.
Without further ado, here's the "best of Boston - so far"
Best Meal Since I've Been Here
Ed - steak tips and mashed potatoes from Bases Loaded near Fenway
Laura - homemade Cuban burgers with garlic mayo
Favorite Day So Far
Our visit to Waldon Pond
Favorite Thing About Our Place
Ed - we have a yard
Laura - our lavender bathroom with jacuzzi tub
Not So Favorite Thing About Our Place
Ed - the fact that we only have one bathroom
Laura - cleaning our hardwood floors (good thing you can't see our feet)
Favorite Boston neighorhood (other than our own)
Ed - Back Bay
Laura - Jamaica Plain
Something We Didn't Expect From Boston
Ed - Friendliness of strangers
Laura - how much I like the clear distinction between seasons
Jack's Favorite Things About Boston (other than turning 14 months old today)
Sidewalks (walking them forever) and slides!
Oh, and tomorrow for breakfast we are planning on having scrambled eggs, boca sausages and tea. Jack will have soymilk (vanilla flavored), too.
