FYI, Regis and Wellesley are pretty close, if you ever want to get together for lunch. ... not that there's all that much of use in Wellesley either. But there's a decent bagel shop, and another one down 30 a bit towards Natick. It's non-campus food, at least.
That's true! It's been a while since I went to Vidalia's too. Poke me off LJ, and let's figure something out...
I think I forgot to say, "Yay new job!"
The first 90 days are really the honeymoon/settling time/final interview anyway. Make the most of it and they'll see you as the invaluable person you are.
Also, there is food *near* Weston, if you go west or south and west. Just not very much. (But you probably know that as likely your commute takes you down 30 past some of the options.)
Yes, there's a pastry shop on 30 that I will try at some point, and there are a few things once you get to Wayland, around the 30/27 intersection. I can also go north to Rt. 20 and find some things there, but none of those are actually in Weston, AFAIK.
Of course, not so far in the other direction is Waltham, Moody St, and the plethora of options there, but that's a bit longer of a drive for a casual lunch.
Congrats on the new job. For another month or so, there's Landsake farm down the road. Not so much a restaurant, but there is a farm stand, and what's better than fresh veggies for lunch? (Mike's sister is a farmer there)
Hi! Haven't heard from you in forever! I'll look into the farmstand, but I usually like a little more protein at lunchtime. I'll bring peanut butter.
Wow, I own a CSA farmshare from Land's Sake! What's Mike's sister's name? I'll be there Thursday for a members bbq thing, maybe I'll run into her.
Mike's sister is Laura...she's iffy about whether she goes to the CSA things though.
I taught at the Cambridge School of Weston for six years, so it's interesting to hear that you're working in Weston.
Another Cambridge School employee who's a friend of Chad's? Do I know you?
I don't teach there now; I was there from 1995-2001. However, if you're working there now, as it so happens I'll be visiting the school next Friday...
Congrats on the new job! Glad to hear all the pros and cons... it seems like some of the cons are things you can work with (pc-centricness, and turning point placement for the school), and the pros sound worthwhile. Just wondering, who's taking over for you at Deis?
A friend of Nick's, named Charlie. (Charley?) He's got Apple Genius training/background, so he's already got support, service, mac experience. He starts next week.
Gimme a call sometime and we can do lunch! Yey working in Weston! Brueggers is tasty for lunch..they make nice salads.
