Picture Dump Part 2 (the Obama edit)

On Super Tuesday eve, Barack Obama held a rally at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston. This is our journey to hear him speak.

The doors were supposed to open at 8:00, so I got there around 6:30. The line was four blocks long, and there were already over 3,000 in line. Thankfully, Khadijah and her posse and Jeremy and Sarah showed up soon thereafter, so I wouldn't have to keep the hope alive all by myself.

Me and Ms. B.

The whole gang. We look happy here because we didn't yet know how long it would actually take us to get inside.

We danced to keep ourselves warm. Jeremy, uh, walked funny.

When we finally got inside, nearly four hours later, we were near the back of the enormous conference hall.

Way back.

But it was great to be there, to be part of a new political process.

Picture Dump Part 1

Way back in January, when my moot court brief was but a spot on the horizon, I visited Elliott in New York to spend the last part of my winter break.

We visited the Imagine circle in Strawberry Fields in Central Park.

Central Park maintenance's own version of Christo and Jean-Claude's The Gates.

Some simple stir-fry on the new CB2 plates we got. (We also visited my personal mecca, the MUJI store in Soho, but those pictures are on Elliott's camera.)

Elliott opened his belated birthday presents on a damp bench in the Columbus quad.

Elliott's happy about his new Alice Waters book. Yay!

And then Elliott came up to Boston, whereupon we made a lot of food.

First, we made chicken enchiladas. Recipe from Chow.

Then we made lots of gingerbread cookies.

And we finished with a winter vegetable kale soup. Mmmmmm.
