Dinner With Tammi

This evening I headed out to Boston for dinner. Tammi is in town and she was able to sneak away from all the show hoopla to spend a couple of hours eating and talking.

Yes it's true, if you go read her post, she told me she wasn't going to drag her blue jeans along with her this time... so I figured I should wear my decent black pants and a presentable top, which I did. Only to see her walk off the elevator in her jeans. Ha - that'll teach me - always call before getting dressed. :-)

One of the other ladies she works with joined us for dinner. She's a very nice person. We all had no trouble chatting away like mad while we took what seemed like the grand tour to find a CVS, because Tammi needed thumb tacks. We did find them (Yay), then walked back to the hotel so we could find the restaurant where we had decided to eat.

I also got to go see what she sells now as they had things all set up for tomorrow. It's all very fun stuff. I bet they have a blast selling it.

All in all, a lovely evening. I'm glad we had a chance to get together. Boston is a great city. Not the size of Chicago, but it has it's own character and I like it very much. Now all I have to do is figure out how to drive around in the city. It's full of one way streets, not to mention it's not completely a grid... which confuses me no end. But I did (after missing it the first time and having to drive way the hell around the Commons) find the parking garage I was looking for, I'm not up for street parking quite yet. It's all in the practice. Tammi will have to come back again so we can do some site seeing together, not to mention North end restaurants.

1 Again, I really do appreciate dinner and the fact that you drove over/up/down/in (I'm not sure where we are!). My hope is next time I'm traveling alone and am not so tired so we can have some "quality" time!!!

And this town really fits you!

3 You'll never be able to figure out Boston traffic because by the time you have it figured out, they'll have changed something.

Some streets are based on the original cowpaths. Then somebody got the bright idea to try to make a grid across the cowpaths. But that left too many areas uncovered so they constructed little side streets. Then in the late 60's when the city's social planners determined that car's were the enemy, important streets were closed off so that people could walk on them.

Then there's the T...

4 AWTM - one day... can't wait.

MGA - don't dash my hopes. *grin* I figure if I can do main streets and parking garages, I might just be able to get near where I want to be -rather than parking at the Commons and walking. I haven't attempted the T yet - but that's because if we take the T we miss stuff so we've done lots of walking. We really should try it... heaven alone knows where that will end. LOL.

5 Oh Sounds like fun! All except the driving of course... ;-)

6 It seems so perfectly "Tammi" to picture her sitting down to dinner and in middle of one of many, many sentences, saying, "Where can I buy some thumb tacks?"

Poifect!
