Gigantic Mall

Did you know that there's a mall from Back Bay Station all the way down to the Copley Square Sheraton? Seriously. You could live inside the hotel there and never have to go outside: it's an incredible amount of ritzy-mallspace that I never knew existed. It just keeps going and going and going. It's no mall of America, for square footage, i'm sure, but it's *long* because it's not got all the side stuff -- and it has two hotels in it! It's craziness.

Met Charles Stross, Hugo-Award winning author last night. He and Jess had a wonderful time talking, and I even got a few words in edgewise at one point or another. Got him to sign a copy of his book for me.

Have laid in bed all morning: kids are with Jay for an extra couple days because they have vaccation this week, and I'm getting all the relaxation in I can. Will be venturing out on the E-line later today, a first for me: I have only taken the green line in the opposite direction from Park, but my computer is just off the Longwood Medical Area stop.

I'm still amazed that you can be inside so much mall. Heck, now that I think about it, you could even go to Filene's Basement without ever stepping outside: just go under the Dartmouth Street Underpass to the Back Bay Station, get off in DTX, and go to Filene's.

That's so weird.
