Love: Celtics' victory parade. If they ever find a way to make men carry children, Paul Pierce had better watch out...

Hate: Perpetually late/unreliable public transportation. If you can't read from the photo, it says "Read as fiction! Fucking liars!"

Love: Protesters and Mennonite choir in Boston Common. It's amazing the variety of people that coexist in this city!

Hate: Yeah, diversity means there's assholes too. This guy was standing in front of me at the Celtics parade.

Love: Flamepoeira Gallery/cafe in the North End, one of my favorite hangouts in Boston. Get the avocado smoothie.

More love: It's just a beautiful city... View from the Bunker Hill monument and John Harvard statue in Harvard Yard.
