Yesterday marked the 40th anniversary of Boston's Gay Pride. We went into town, watched the parade and partied. Despite the torrential downpour we enjoyed ourselves - soaked to the skin for the remainder of the day.
I have a ton of pictures: While I would love to incorporate them into this post, I just don't have the energy to download and modify - as there is always a need for a bit of cropping and changes to the lighting.
The day started at 8:30am with a ferry ride in town and ended by catching the 10:49pm train back.
---------Up early today to catch breakfast with a friend and then wait for the cable guy. So let me update you on TV saga....
In case you don't remember: Recall a couple posts back I mentioned getting a new tv because we "thought" our old bubble set from 1995 was broken...flickering etc. Also recall my friend came over to hitch it up and couldn't get it working.
After all that, I called Comcast and they said they would send a technician out. It was still flickering exactly like the old set but I wasn't sure if it was because we needed an HD box. They came out Thursday and spent two and half hours trying to rectify. I wasn't here, my unemployed friend came over to let him in and when they left it was working. I came home, turned it on and still flickering!
I was pissed. I spent $400 on a new tv when the old one was probably fine.
Ultimately I not so mad that I getting rid off a seemingly good television, I just want to watch the new one I got! I really needed a new set anyway; plus the price and financing were good, no interest for two years at Best Buy.
Long story short, Comcast is coming out again today to try and rectify.
