ok so this weekend i went to boston, not very impressive, cause its not really a city, not by far, NYC is a city, boston is a small suburb trying to pretend to be a city. The buildings there were pretty short, that is, not like in NYC where there are skyscrapers everywhere. that and most of boston has a bunch of old buildings, most of the sites are old, historical sites, blah. but the good thing about boston is lobster! seafood all around! YES!!! cause I <3 lobster...hmmm lobster....

and another good thing was Johnny Cupcake! For those of you who do not know who Johnny Cupcake is, shame on you!

the lobster and johnny cupcake was the highlights of the trip there, and yes you can do boston in a weekend or less, seriously....the rest of the story is drama....
this was a last minute trip, badly planned if it was planned at all. we ended up taking 2 cars to drive up there. there was my group and the other group. ok so our friend who stated that we were going to leave by 9 am and drive there cause it takes roughly 3 hours to get there called me up at 7:30. i was up and about by then telling Eve she was a special ferret bc she is a special ferret...the most specialist ferret in the world, that and she is a survivor...

ok so our group hauls ass and moves and gets in the car and drives up, we're driving along happy, going yay lobster, yay boston! at 10:37 i get a call from the other group, and I seriously thought they were kidding or playing a joke when they said oh we're just leaving now, we just got on the bridge...i thought haa haa very funny..whatever...we get to boston, past the sign and we're driving around trying to find johnny cupcake...when we call our friend in the other car, and they're like oh we're stuck in traffic. where are you? we're like 2 hours away. WTF? its noon by now, we're all wondering WTF?! are you serious? apparently they weren't kidding or joking when they said they just left. wtf? right? so anyways we start walking along newberg street, its boston's version of soho or something, all the stores are in these old buildings, kinda cute and strange at the same time.

so we're walking around, and looking at stores, we go to johnny cupake, and a few other stores, we're happy, then we get hungry, and being that they won't be here for at least another 2 hours, we decide fuck this, we're in boston, we came for lobster!!!!!

yes jasper white's summer shack is a MUST if ur in boston, well you must eat lobster in boston!

yummy lobster with corn, steamers, mussels, chorizo, and a potato...i love lobster....
so we continue to walk around looking at stores, and i'm window shopping happy and all. we get a call from our friends, who's car does not have navi...argh...they don't know where they are, and are lost. sigh. our car had navi so we were like ok, tell us where u want us to meet u. that was more drama, bc they wanted us to meet them at the hotel. i was in shopping mode and lets face it my friends and i didn't want to go either, so we sent a representative, which was a good thing, cause what happened really sucked. we told them where we were, lots of cafes, resturants and such, a nice place to eat. they say oh ok, meet us at the hotel, we send a rep. the rep goes, they decide oh we're gonna eat around the hotel, cause we're hungry, (mind you 2 hours late as well) so you wanted us to come to the hotel to watch you eat right? so not cool. our rep came back slightly annoyed, and we continued to walk around the area. the other group that was late, went to eat albanian food. you drive up 3 hours to boston to eat albanian? and the reasoning? ok the other group consisted of 2 vegetarians, and one person that would ONLY eat Halal meat. Albanian food uses Halal meat. Now what is Halal meat? Bascially my friend explained the difference between kosher and halal. Kosher they kill the animal immediately, fast and the least amount of pain and suffering. I'm not a vegetarian, I'm not saying you should be or anyone else should be but hell, if you're going to eat meat, then fine, eat it. But when I found out what Halal meat was, I was like WTF? Not to rip on someone's belief and such, I just don't agree with it. Halal is the almost the opposite of Kosher, i say almost, basically the slice open the major arteries and such, but you leave the spinal cord intact and basically the blood drains out of the animal. yes the animal is alive when you drain it, its rather a horrible drawn out death, and I don't really like it. if you're going to kill an animal to eat it, please kill it swiftly and not make it suffer anymore. but that's how i feel, and I will never eat that kind of meat, but anyways i digress.
now after they eat, we have to check into the hotel. suprisingly holiday inn was pretty clean and decent and i was suprised that and the coffee machine in the bathroom. so we walk back to the street with the shops again, god by now i'm tired of walking but we press on....

we walk and it's clear that the late group shows no real interest in shopping and seem to be draggin their feet. sigh. anyways i'm still amused...dinner time rolls around...more drama...
for some reason we're walking away from the street with the cafes, resturants and such, why? i don't know, and i don't understand. the vegetarians, who can't eat at the lobster shack, or steak house, (sigh) one of them actually goes NO Thai food, No Italian. WTF? What is left then? hmmm? you're severely limiting our choices! SEVERELY! some of us were annoyed at that. like not only are we trying to be accomodating but you're gonna be a picky vegetarian as well?! there was discussion, and i was just annoyed, we ended up eating thai food.

then we walked around even more, goddamn all this walking, they dont have sidewalks they have these weird brick roads going on there. and the streetlamps were old skool but had tiny lights so it was pretty damn dark.
we went to the park and there were like a 500 million people taking wedding pictures there. ugh. and a quinceaƱera. sadly the girl was large, and she wore this bright neon green dress. *shudders* is this what Boston has to offer?

we walked around boston at night, and saw some mall, we were tired but one person in the group wanted to go to the mall. sigh. so we went to the mall, it was closing, and we were annoyed by then.

we headed back to the hotel, where we were suppose to meet and discuss what we were doing tomorrow. so the veggies dropped out, and went to sleep leaving the rest of us to decide. that didn't turn out well, bc mostly no one could agree on what to do, the tours were pricey, and then the free tours were walking ones and no one wanted to do that. i didnt' want to go to the acquaruim, one person wanted to go to salem. so not driving there, another person wanted to go to cape cod. an hour in the wrong direction. we finally decided on going to quincy markey which was a bad version of seaport here. sigh. we walked there in the morning, took a wrong turn, ended up elsewhere in boston common where another person in the group started buying stuff, while the rest of us wanted to get to quincy market. then the veggies were like no we need to eat NOW. so we ate at finagle bagel, which i was good. i ended up having the french toast bagel with egg, sausage and cheese.

so we make it quincy and it was pretty lame...sigh..cheers was canceled how long ago and this is what their main attraction still? sigh.

one store i did like was the lobster store, filled with lobsters and uselss stuff. it did amuse me during this drama filled trip.

and another thing that amused me. a pig with cow slippers. yes that did make me happy.

and there were street performers, they were kinda amusing, i mean they were working for their $$$ and they were funny....but again we didn't stay to watch long...sigh...

so for lunch, more drama unfolds. somehow i don't know how one person in the group convinced the others yes let's leave boston and go eat elsewhere, let's drive back to ny, and eat inbetween, that'll be great. wtf? that is a horrible idea! what is the middle? connecticut? WTF? do you know anyone in conn? dear god. so now everyone's happy with that plan, a bad plan. so we start to drive, our car has the navi, theirs doesn't. we try to get on the highway but can't bc the navi tells us to turn left and there are signs stating NO LEFT TURN! so what do we do? we have to turn right. we turn right and end up in MIT. *ugly campus* and our friends follow and call and go I think you're going in the wrong direction. i explain calmly the navi wanted us to turn left but we could not turn left, and had to turn right and now we're trying to get on the road, but we had to make this retarded circle. "I really do think you're going in the wrong direction" WTF? U know what, I'll meet you in NY then! i was so irritated! then while driving on the road, we get another call going what exit do we get off at? wtf? navi says to stay on this road for the next 8 miles! you're NOT 8 miles ahead of us so shut up. oh well we passed you, so speed up, wtf? Going 75 apparently isn't fast enough esp when u have ppl in the car. if u want to know where to get get a navi or fucking print out the mapquest directions, and stop being so prick like. finally we meet up on the highway, and guess what? the road turns into another road. god some ppl. anyways they wanted to eat in the middle, horrible idea. i call one of my friends, who happens to live in hartford, and he goes, dude there's this fucking awesome steakhouse there! sorry we got some veggies with us. he's like wtf? sorry i don't know any. i asked him for italian or something and he's like er....gotta think about it...hee hee...needless to say, the directions lead us towards hartford but never into it and it connects to this other road that heads into ny. they call again, and go weren't we going to stop off in hartford? WTF?! i explain calmly but i'm too irritated at this point, and hand the phone to my friend who explains it nicely. fucking eat in the middle? that was a retarded plan. that and the fact that we have picky veggies with us which makes it even more complicated. so then suddenly they just get off the road, and exit. we're like wtf? we call them and go um where are you guys? oh we needed gas and we're hungry. oh like u call us to question our navi and other things but don't call to say you're getting gas. oh that's considerate.
so we get off at the next exit, and go fuck this, there's a chilli's there, we're eating cause we're meat eaters! they call again and go hey why don't we meet up at the mall. yes this is the part where we were seriously like WTF? are u kidding me? we all said no, and we got back in the car and headed back. there was much too much drama and complications happening...

we got back to NY and were happy, somewhat except for the heat, damn it's hot here now. i think the best was when one of the veggies were like let's go to cape cod. wtf are you going to do there? u know that's where they catch the lobsters? Where seafood restaurants are? And ppl go fishing. unless you're going hiking or bicycling ur kinda screwed. but they were like yeah we wanna go. wtf are you going to do there we're not doing any lame hiking, i don't know camping, i dont' do the outdoors stuff, except rafting, not boating or canoeing caues thats for kids. i'm gonna go to the seafood resturant cause that's what's there!
mental note, next time when going anywhere seafood or possibly fun related, bring normal ppl without dietary issues.
