Wednesday adventure

Dim sum!
Then Orange Line to the new Assembly Square station. It still looks underdeveloped, big empty lot by the station, though some transit-oriented development a block away, and work on a 12 story high rise. Nice river walk. Lots of swans on the river, and some I'd guess mated pairs of ducks. https://www.flickr.com/photos/mindstalk/albums/72157660118092399

Then, Orange Line to Ruggles, walk through Northeastern to the MFA. New special exhibit is "Class Distinctions in Dutch Paintings", which I found fairly interesting. Some photos, followed by a Native American gallery. https://www.flickr.com/photos/mindstalk/sets/72157660869739711/with/22185384753/
The exhibit story had a lot of books on American class issues, plus some Dutch books: Nickel and Dimed, and
dead end gene pool

the other America, Harrington
the American way of poverty, abramsky
low life, luc sante
oh the glory of it all

Weirdness: today I posted a crappy kitchen photo of a friend, just for my own visual memory since she's gone away, and got a "Great capture!" comment from some stranger on flickr.

I believe ducks are promiscuous. Perhaps the mated pairs were geese?

I can tell the difference between a duck and a goose. Especially when there's an actual goose for comparison, but really.

I obviously don't know if they were really mates or what, but there were three pairs of (male+female) duck paddling around.

I'm sorry! I read too much into "mated". Of course, they might have been courting.
It would be pleasant to see the literal referent of "Fuck a duck!".
