Well done. This is good stuff for those of us who aren't in Boston.
The Dice-K sign, for the curious, says 'Welcome to Boston' and then the smaller text below is 'Mayor Tom Menino' and 'People of Boston'. (Well, the text says Thomas, not Tom, but who calls him that?)
Awesome. I was actually wondering; I can read Korean, but not Japanese. Thanks!
I actually heard the guy with the "Holliday Lifts Weights - Papi Lifts Cakes" talking to a friend. So like...he has them. Go fig.
Aww, these are awesome! Makes me homesick. Thanks :)
You're welcome...I always think, I live here, I should go do these things...and then I'm always amazed at how people who live here don't do these things...
When I lived there, two blocks away from Fenway, I never did. So, it's a win for vicarious living!
I always try to do "tourist things" wherever I live. I used to live in San Francisco, and I always rode the cable cars.
That's great :) I'm originally from NYC, and I live there now, and I've never even been to the top of the Empire State Building!
I did ride the cable cars when I lived in SF, though.
The only tourist thing I never did in SF was go to Alcatraz and reat at the Tadich Grill. I actually had a job interview in the Pyramid that was in offices 5 floors from the top, so I actually got to do something most people don't get to do...the view was spectacular, I don't know how anyone ever got any work done up there. Here in Boston, I still haven't gone on a Duck Tour, and I haven't gone to the aquarium...but I've been to the top of the Prudential, walked the Freedom Trail, gone to the St. Patrick's Day parade in Southie.
Hee. I've been to the top of the Empire State Building! I've gone to the Met, the Library, Katz' Deli, the Strand bookstore, the Bronx Zoo (and of course, a Yankees game)...but I've never been to the Natural History Museum. Actually, I was in NYC on New Year's Eve once, but I wasn't at Times Square. I was in Sheep Meadow, watching the runners and the fireworks.
When I lived in Boston, I always wanted to do the Duck Tour... I mean, is there anything cooler? Also, go to the aquarium, it's awesome.
I've never been to Times Square on NYE, it's totally for tourists, and I spent basically every day after school during my high school senior year in the Sheep Meadow :)
I added ya back!
Wow. You've lived in SF, Boston and NYC? You may be my new hero.
I've lived in SF, Boston, Montreal and...well, Atlanta, but less said about that, the better.
Well, I will admit that the stint in SF only lasted about six months, and while I technically had a job, I spent most of my time slacking off. It was Spring, what can I say?
well, Atlanta, but less said about that, the better.
We all have times like that :)
PS we seem to have a few random things in common (cats, Lost, Red Sox, living in SF and cities in general)...I added you...
Wow. Really great pics--I loved 'em all, especially the guy wearing the tuba.
I wish I could have gotten closer to him...there was also a guy in a bright purple blazer that I wish I'd gotten a photo of.
If I still live in the greater-Boston area at that time, I will ensure my kids go to Fenway High!
For some reason, I'm always surprised when I see it.
Do you have a bigger version of the picture with the "This guy sucks" sign? I'd love to make an icon out of it. With proper credit, of course. :D
I do...email me at coco (at) username.com and I'll send it to you)
E-mail sent! Thanks a lot. :D
And replied to! You're welcome!
