Chasing Pirates

That title has nothing to do with anything, except the fact that I'm listening to "Chasing Pirates" by Norah Jones, who I am going to marry.

George Washington Statue in Boston Common

Saturday I joined a handful of ward members for a photo scavenger hunt.  It started at the Boston Common.  I was in a group with Molly (awesome), Chad (dating Molly), Annie (engaged to the EQP), and Aubrey (kinda boring).  We had a really good time and I got to see a lot of Boston that I hadn't seen yet, including the public library, the Trinity Church, and the far side of the Common.  I have a lot of exploring to do yet.  The leaves are finally starting to change in Boston and they are absolutely gorgeous.  All I need now is a sunny day so my crappy camera can capture the colors.

What else has been going on? at 3:00 Sophie, Langston and I headed over to the Lamont Library Poetry Room at Harvard.  They had a presentation of recordings by the New York School poets, among whom is my favorite, Frank O'Hara.  There were quite a few good poems that I hadn't heard yet, and the best one that was new to me was "One Train May Hide Another" by Kenneth Koch.  It's my favorite poem of the week.  There were quite a few people there and free candy, and after the recordings there was a fifteen minute documentary-style movie of Frank O'Hara reading his poetry and walking around NYC.  Good times.  After it was over we met Nick and Lisa over at Mr. Bartley's.  I got "The Democrat."  So the burgers I've tried are (in order of deliciousness):
  1. The Viagra
  2. The Tom Brady
  3. The Democrat
  4. The Hillary Clinton
Speaking of food:

Coolest Pizza Box Ever

I recently tried out the pizza place just down the street.  It's called Pizzeria Dante, and although I had to pay $15.75 for a two-topping pizza, it was worth it.  Best pizza so far.  So when you all come to visit me, we can go there.  And to Mr. Bartley's.  Because there are a ton of burgers there still to try. 

And now I leave you with one more picture of the beautiful city I live in:
