Tom Lehrer is Smug

(no subject)

Anybody know if there are local falcons nesting in Boston? I'm reasonably sure the birds what buzzed me last week out on the Fort Point Channel were of the falcony ilk, possibly Peregrines. Two of 'em there were, swooping out over the water. One swooped so close to me that I could hear the fwoosh as it went by. The serious detail I noticed was that it had bright yellow talons.

Then again, I've seen seagulls riding the thermals high up above the place, but that ding-dang swoopy birdo certainly warn't no seagull.

IT'S THE EAST ASIA CHALLENGE

I like ordering out from East Asia in Powderhouse Square because A. it's cheap, B. the food is good and 3. the driver guy is FAST. I mean, super fast. Last time I ordered from East Asia, I did so at something like 7:41 pm. By 7:50, the food had arrived. That's like nine minutes from "I'd like to place an order for delivery" to "Hello yes I did order from you guys" and that includes the time it took to spell out my street name over the phone twice and beg for no bean sprouts on the tofu pad thai. I gave a big honkin "Even tho you guys are like a half mile away, you rock" tip.

Tonight I ordered at 8:50. HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE? OH THE EXCITEMENT IS PALPABLE HERE AT THE HALL OF JUSTICE
