This is beyond fucked up. My prayers go out to all those affected, as well as hoping that there are no additional explosions :\. Does anyone know how close this was to Northeastern or Wentworth? I have good friends at both schools. I hope everyone's alright.

Also, wtf, I read in one article that US Postal Services have been ordered to check mailboxes for explosives? Is that really something a mail person is qualified to do!?
I go to Northeastern, it's about a mile away. Everyone who was on campus is fine, just make sure your friends didn't decide to go to the marathon.

I wouldn't make a big deal about the guy on the roof in that picture, I see people on roofs of buildings in Boston fairly often, especially to watch the marathon.

it's been like two and a half hours and every time I hear sirens it freaks me the fuck out. don't really want to walk home from work, I'm still in my office now.

I feel sick just watching that. I can't even tell you how many times I've walked down that street.

I am afraid to say I think the death toll will rise by tomorrow with so many critically injured. There are little words to describe how I felt today, I was at bars in Boylston last night...
I was at Whiskey's and Lir on Saturday night... just so crazy to think about how close this all is. :/

A note of levity:

You like your bars expensive, huh?
eh, I just go where my friends go. Whiskey's is pretty awful, I enjoy Lir though.

I hate Lir. Three levels, all overpriced. Whiskey's I like if you go in an afternoon to eat, have a beer and watch a game. At night, I get claustrophobic in there.
to be fair I've only been to each of them a few times. I think the first time I was at Lir was St. Patrick's Day and I was going to have a good time regardless of where I was. I've gotten brunch at Whiskey's and it was really good, but Saturday night it was incredibly crowded and miserable.

My friend posted a picture of the marathon this morning (hours before everything happened) and Whiskey's was in the background, and I thought of you for whatever reason

my office ended up being closed today because of yesterday's events so I'm just hanging out at my apartment... never bring my work laptop home with me so I can't work from home.
