FUDCon Day 0 [Jan. 13th, 2009|09:42 am]

The flight to BOS went smoothly. Got off the plane and found the Silver Line bus to South Station. Hopped on the Red Line to the Kendal/MIT stop. Not being from a big town and not having taken any form of public transportation in over a decade, I was rather impressed with how easy it was to get around.

Came out of the station and set off to find the hotel. This is where things almost went very wrong. Jeremy had told me "just look up", and well I did that. But I was facing the wrong direction when I did. So I unknowingly started walking away from the hotel. That went on for about a block until I decided to look up again. Felt quite stupid, but crisis averted.

Checked into the hotel, which was very nice. Went in search of food as I hadn't eaten dinner yet. Decided to explore and took the T to Central and ate at Wendys. So much for "exploring". This was fortunate though because I had forgotten to pack deodorant and there was a Walgreens right across the street.

Went back to the hotel to settle in for the night. Realized I didn't remember what building FUDCon was actually in. Thought about getting on the hotel wireless to check, but The Big Lebowski came on HBO and got distracted. Crashed when the movie ended.

More later.
