I was invited to join Emma and her mom at the Capitol Theater to watch "Frozen" today. Emma enjoyed her first movie theater experience and the movie was great. One of my favorite things about Emma is she calls me "President Patton".
On my way to Christmas dinner with friends I approached an intersection near the Alewife subway station and recognized a homeless man that I've seen there before. My light was red. I had some bags of a chex mix treats (aka "Christmas crack") with me that I was planning to deliver to friends after dinner and quickly got a $5 bill out of my wallet and one of the bags, put my car in park and got out and left the money and treat for him. He noticed me from across the street and yelled "thank you" and crossed the street. I rolled my window down to hear him thank me again and say, "I love that stuff." It was a nice Christmas moment.
I was born and raised in Van Nuys, California. I moved to Boston sight-unseen and have loved living in New England since that day when I said, "this apartment is OLD". My hobbies are antiquing, reading books and magazines (bring back Blueprint and Domino please), sewing, quilting, sightseeing, watching movies, and photography. I love the color red and have a retro red refrigerator (and kitchen aid mixer and ice cream maker and toaster and...) to prove it! I live in a converted high school and love decorating my loft condo (w/ 18 foot ceilings) that was formerly the auditorium. I have 3 brothers, 11 nieces and nephews, and a bus fleet of friends.
