a long day. went to work in the morning only after realizing i didn't have the right assets to fix the bugs from home. without a motorcycle, i had to bicycle down to the SRM office. by the time i got there i was tired and sweaty. after i made my fixes, i went back home. taking my parents' car, i drove out to greater boston motorcycle to pick up the spare part, grabbing some barbecue at blue ribbon (arlington) along the way, bumping into tom chance again. my father and i went home to belmont to replace the kickstand on the motorcycle. i then went back out to GBM to get the bike inspected. returning to cambridge once more, i stopped by the gas station to get some air into the front tire. i noticed some red paint marks on the rubber, possibly from the car who ram the bike (which just so happened to match the color of the car of the neighbor whom i think might've hit me). later in the day some scooter rider parked his vehicle next to mine in an attempt to butch up his image. for dinner i had some fried rice, and spent much of the evening figuring out the location of thoreau's bog, which i think i've managed to discover through satellite photos of northern concord. after i get some waterproof rubber boots, i'm heading out there to find this place.
