Been really busy with college lately, I haven't had the time to post as much as I used to. :(

Your doing college wrong ;) ...well busy with college could mean many things.

Not doing it wrong, (not sure what that means) but just have a lot packed into my classes right now.

Thanks, based on your sn I'm guessing by eastern you mean inside the 128 belt, not lower cape.

I'm an art school drop out, my college advice is real bad... But on that note I've found I start hallucinating without drugs at about 48 hours without sleep, stuff gets wacky at 72hrs...well maybe there was some drugs, I don't remember many details from that time.

Yes - I live essentially, but not technically, in Boston. (Near two T stations, a quarter-mile from the Boston city line, and a 20-minute jog from Back Bay, but in a neighboring municipality.)

Up near the VT line, in the greater Greenfield area.
oh ok, haven't been out there, though we were going to if we had time. we were way out toward the western end of MA and that's most of what i've ever seen of MA and VT. Great Bearington, Stockbridge, Pittsfield, North Adams and then Bennington were on the list but ran out of time to take the great route 2 out your way. Stopped at two pizza places of the same name in Pittsfield and Williamstown: Hot Tomatoes.

they burned our pizza in pittsfield...

BUT DEM FAHGLEITZ!! :shock:
