The month of July has been a busy one over here in Boston, MA. With weekend trips to Gloucester, the best damn 4th of July party around, and lots of side projects to satiate my curiosity. Firstly, my latest project has been this beauty. I rescued this old computer from the Craigslist free section, and now, after multiple operating systems, formatting of what I learned to be corrupted drives, and some orders to amazon, I have a perfectly function retro game console. So far I’ve installed a Super Nintendo (SNES) emulator and have it hooked up to my TV through a DIV-HDMI cable. Here she is in all her glory:
Other news, my backyard has been overgrown and now is the closest thing to jungle that I know of in the Medford/Somerville area. My sunflower continues to grow straight up (that thing is as tall as me now!) and amidst the many weeds and other undesirables in my yard I noticed this very established cilantro plant! Needless to say, I was overjoyed with the thought of large supplies of *free* fresh cilantro.
I’ve also just arrived back from a weekend trip to D.C., which I’ve learned is an amazing(ly expensive) city. On my way included a 90 minute layover in New York, a first visit to that area as well.
Stay tuned for more adventures!
