It was a long day - up at 6:15 in order to take Flo to the airport, went to bed at about 2:30 AM on the 1st.
Arthur didn't want to do First Night activities. In the afternoon, we went to see "Lincoln." Really well done, not perfect, but as far as I am concerned, "Empire of the Sun" is the only Spielberg movie with no judgment errors. The overlaps between Lincoln & the Hobbit were actor Lee Pace, and each had a character named Bilbo (in Lincoln it was a surname).
Arthur stayed home when I went downtown to see the 7 PM fireworks over Boston Common and to do some crowd mingling. As I was coming out of Park Street Station, I saw two men in costume hurrying towards me. The costumes gave me vague thoughts about the parade, and then I registered their faces. Could that be Zachary Quinto & Jonathan Groff? I followed them into the station (at a distance) and got a better look at ZQ's face while he was adding money to his T ticket, so I'm pretty sure it was them. I didn't bother them for an autograph or anything, but went back out into the mob scene.
Back to Lexington, met Arthur at a restaurant that used to be one of our favorites, but last year it was bought out and changed somewhat. Their vegetarian dumplings are excellent, but I don't know that we'll go too often. Watched some TV (including a documentary about male synchronized swimmers in Sweden http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/men-who-swim/ )
then went back downtown for the traditional midnight bell ringing.
I don't tend to make resolutions, but I think I'm going to give Ancestry.com a try this year.
