The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

A little rain, a little T-Rex, and a totally not there waitron

It was a beautiful day to visit Renninger's Extravaganza.

[The Big Blue Room is a bit grey today. We might want to call maintenance and have them look at the problem.]

That pesky bright sun will be kept at bay, and the warm rain and sudden increase in humidity is good for the soul, right?

Bunny had already made one trip early in the morning and found a wonderful deal on a banjo—her banjo lessons weren't going all that great without one, you see. She arrived back, pulled me out of bed and after a rather disappointing lunch at Perkins (the food was eh, but our waitron was not at all there mentally—Bunny ordered a BLT sandwich and received a salad with bacon, lettuce, tomato and croutons; right ingredients, wrong form) we arrived at Renningers.

By now it was less crowded it was this morning and we walked around a bit. About the only thing I saw that held any interest to me was a seven foot metal sculpture of a T-Rex eating a bull.

[Mmmmm ... beef!  Nom nom nom!]

But sadly, it wouldn't fit in our vehicle (much less my office at The Ft. Lauderdale Office of The Corporation) so we had to pass it up.

We were there for perhaps an hour before it started pouring rain. It was then we decided we had enough of the place and headed back to our hotel to rest and for Bunny to practice the banjo.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
