I'd like to suggest something: get dressed up - pretty dress, fancy-schmancy shoes, make-up - with a friend and go anywhere for a lunch. No doubt it's better when you can do it in the summer and there's outdoor seating, but I'm sure it would be good anytime.
On Saturday afternoon, I got prettied up and went into Harvard Square to Grendel's with my lovely little elven friend, A. She even wore a hat. We walked around, ate yummy food, and strolled through one of (apparently) only 2 only-poetry bookstores in the USA.
Later that night I went into Central Square to see my friend, Tim Fite play at TT The Bear's. Mr. Fite and I went to high school together, and it was a lot of fun to watch him get a crowd of people "perform" along with him to Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes.
Wow, I love living here.
