Nick and Karen’s Wedding

Years after Nick and I were flatmates at that quirky art school in the south of England, I attend his wedding. Nick and Karen met in Boston, and although they’ve since moved to California, they returned to their home city for the nuptial ceremonials.

For the second night in a row, Boston is blanketed in snow. We brave the ice and snow, to find ourselves at the lusty Omni Parker House, where we are subsequently stuffed with food and treated to a predictable playlist that still has an undeniable power to motivate us to butt-shaking.

All in all, a lovely time.

And for no reason, here’s a photo of me, Nick, and Hugh in London on our final night together in London.

Lauren’s House

Through the snow and wind of January, I journey to Boston, for the wedding of grad school flatmate Nick, and his lady Karen. Lauren, my old high school chum, has graciously offered to put me up for the night, thus saving me the hassle and costs of staying a hotel, which I forgot to reserve anyway.

Lauren’s place is comfy, and distinctively female.

And yes, that is a foam penis and pig in a jar of water. That’s how she rolls.

In Boston

Autumn in New England. It has a certain smell, and the air is crisp. Dry. Shadows are long, even in midday and laughter can be heard from many a basement of a ratty bar in Cambridge.

Travelling this weekend, first to CT to visit the grandparents, then into Boston to see Keith and the Girl and to hang with Nick Baker who I haven’t seen in some months. We toured the great Universities of the Boston area – at least Harvard and MIT, and continued our walking tour downtown. The common, etc.

The show was great fun and we laughed heartily. Afterwards, a band called Merit performed. Good stuff. Although we had to leave in order to preserve the remainder of our scheduled events the following morning.
