Meet the Mayor: Boomerangs (JP)

Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in their natural habitats.

Boomerangs (Jamaica Plain)
Rebeca Oliveira

Best thing you've ever gotten at Boomerangs?
For "grown-up" clothes, a $10 cashmere sweater. Last time I was there, I very nearly purchased a $15 sequined pink jacket. I put it up to the Internet vote, and they told me I have no place to wear it.

Stupidest thing you've ever seen for sale?
Oh, jeez, ugly ties and very unfortunate hats. There is always a sad-looking fondue pot in the back. The worst thing I've bought at Boomerangs was a copy of Tess of the d'Urbervilles for 50 cents. I have never hated a book more in my life.

They had a Twin Peaks motif in the front window display recently?
Yes, and they had a Star Trek window.

The top three ways T.N.G. is superior to the original?
They're two different beasts. For what it's worth, if I had to serve on the Enterprise, I would choose to serve under Picard. If I died under his service, he would make sure he delivered my body to my family, and would write my kid a glowing recommendation to Starfleet Academy. Kirk would be busy trying to hook up with my widow, if I had a widow.
