Cabot’s in Newton: Yummy food, sort-of-pushy waitress

January 10, 2011

Two friends and I at Cabot's

I went to Cabot’s in Newton for brunch on Sunday. I had never been there before, and heard great things about their homemade ice cream. Well I didn’t get ice cream because it was the morning. Instead I ordered eggs, wheat toast, and grapefruit. Everything was good (though it seems hard to mess up these things), especially the fruit (very fresh). I enjoyed the coffee as well. I only have two complaints about the joint:

  • Our waitress was a little pushy about us ordering. (We were waiting for a friend, and she even said “If it starts getting crowded you might have to leave.”)
  • The bathrooms aren’t too clean, and you have to go up a sketchy staircase to get to them.

“This is a toast to Jeannie’s rational approach to decision-making”

April 20, 2010

I had a good chuckle the other day when I watched some of my friend Jeannie’s wedding video with her and our respective significant others.

They made me watch the part where I gave Jeannie a wedding toast. It’s always hard to watch yourself speak. You notice your faults that way.

I started off the toast describing how Jeannie and I met and mentioning some fun times we had together. I then began listening a number of the characteristics I like about Jeannie.

The first two were pretty standard. But the next characteristic was her “rational approach to decision-making.” Rational approach to decision-making? What was I thinking! Who says that during a wedding toast?

This part of the speech had Jeannie, her husband, my boyfriend and I roaring with laughter. My boyfriend was like, “Christine, that was supposed to be a wedding toast, not a nomination speech for a new Supreme Court Justice!”

Oh well, guess I didn’t get the memo!
