Excellent. Boston is my home town.I'm only out here in Ann Arbor for the
degree and then I want to come back home. I lived up in Saugus for too
many years. :)

Right! The only time you'd have to worry about it is if you were directing
projects or something. Or supporting many research labs (like the harvard

I'll be staying in downtown boston all weekend; my flight leaves at
3pm. if anyone in boston feels social, give me an email; if not, talk to
you guys later. I'm leaving now. Really.
