Speaking of cheesy pictures…

And by cheesy, I mean Mac and Cheesy…

Sara and me, Faneuil Hall

I didn’t think anyone needed proof of just how much I love corny photo opportunities, but I thought I’d take this chance to share some of the “biggest” ways I’ve found to raise the cheese factor.  Sometimes in comes in the form of a giant nut, sometimes it looks like Katie’s favorite dinner.  And sometimes, it looks a heck of a lot more comfortable than my desk at the office.

On the greenway

I love running across random stuff like this in my everyday life.  Only the world’s largest hammock (true story) was intentional, the others just happened to be there.  This is what I love about living in a city like Boston.*  You never know when you’re going to run into something awesome that makes your day.

With Phoebe, City Hall

*The beer selection ain’t bad either.

Bonus: check out me and a huge native american statue on my November road trip.  How cool?

Also, ask sometime to see the pictures we took with giant Amish statues on our roadtrip to Hershey one summer.  They were BC (before this computer) but they really are a treasure.  Or something.

Ingredients for Roadtrip Success

In order to evaluate any roadtrip (or trip in general), you must see if certain criteria have been met:

  • Did you get lost at any point and laugh as you found your way back to humanity?
  • Did you eat at least two meals in the car and another in a parking lot/rest stop?
  • Did you get scurvy from eating only white carbs for 72 hours straight?
  • Did you sing to a rocking 90s music and argue over the contents of one such playlist?
  • Did you use public buildings and campaign headquarters as pit stops?
  • Did you have conversations about life, the universe, and the validity of KFC’s Double Down sandwich?
  • Did you pull a quick u-turn when you saw a giant native American statue on the side of the road?

Oh yeah we did, and how!  (Get it?)

I still think that if P and I are going to make a career of campaigning cross country, we need a better GPS, a cooler full of fruits with vitamin C, stronger bladders, and a car that I am allowed to help drive.  But we survived this trip and are still best buds, so I have faith in us.  Watch out world, we’ll be on your road sometime in the (distant) future!
