So I’m heading off to Boston for my fourth eBay Live! event. Originally, I was to attend for Doba. Well, they bought me a plane ticket before I quit working there (and before I knew that they were planning on sending me). And so, even though I don’t work there anymore, they offered to fly me to Boston anyhow.
Upon hearing this, I went to work convincing my new employer that it would be beneficial to send me to eBay Live! Thus, I have room and board paid for by OrangeSoda while Doba takes care of the plane ticket. Not a bad deal, even if it is a bit unconventional.
Within the United States, this will be by far the farthest east I have ever been. Prior to tomorrow, the farthest east I’ve visited in the U.S. was New Orleans when I attended eBay Live! 2004. Prior to that however, Colorado marked the farthest east I had ever traveled within the States.
It adds another state I can add to the very few that I have visited in my life: California (state of my birth), Utah, Hawaii (lay over when I was a baby returning from the Philippines), Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, and Louisiana. Ten states visited, 40 more to go!
My plans during my visited to historical Massachusetts include egging Paul Revere’s house, dumping two tons of chocolate mix into the harbor, hacking into the computer databases of MIT to award myself a PhD. in metaphysics, and changing the Harvard motto from “veritas” (meaning “truth”) to “subjectio” (meaning “falsehood”).
Actually I’d prefer to go do some card counting and poker playing in Atlantic City, but at 450 miles from Boston, I don’t think that’s going to happen. Anyway, I’ll take lots of pictures and let you know how it goes.
