Boston

So what time does Commencement actually begin?

I totally had time to go to church (10am) with my family and even hang out at coffee hour a bit before feeling like we should head back for real brunch. I'm thinking 1pm the exercises started? The official literature (the schedule in the brochure as well as the official website) has Commencement ceremony/exercises at 10am (with "Residence houses close" at 1pm, to boot). Anyone with a better memory than I wanna chime in to assist with my making Sunday brunch date plans?

Edit: They really changed Commencement from 1pm to 10am? Why?! ::smites:: /edit

Speaking of... who's gonna be around that weekend and wanna see me? I'm getting in some time Thursday night and my only solid plans are the Read With Us sessions Friday morning (9am-1pm, including lunch) and the class dinner ('cause it looks like a lot of food for a decent price), plus of course Graduation itself. I could possibly be persuaded to do Ivy Day.

[Edit: Note to self: Remember to go to the art museum (open 10-4). /edit]

I'm also taking suggestions for things to do in Europe (London/Edinburgh/Belfast/Wales, and Prague) this summer.

While I'm abusing the information pool, also taking suggestions for a new blender, can opener, dish set, and thoughts on a new computer (I was gonna cave and get a laptop, but Eric recommends a desktop).
