How Many Licks Does it Take to Get to the Center of Tootsie Pop?

Actually, I think today the more appropriate question is how many hours of class does it take for a bird to die? I had to go to class at 9AM this Saturday morning. As I was walking through Charles River Park on my way to the red line (I was avoiding the other subway lines because of the Red […]

Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina (or Oklahoma City, Cambridge, Boston, Somerville, Chicago, Cape Cod or Arizona)

Thanks for all of your kind comments, emails, phone calls and instant messages regarding yesterday’s posting. I really, REALLY appreciate it. But I’ll be fine (actually, I think we’ll be fine). I think the worst of it is over. I know there will be difficult moments ahead (particularly the day we officially stop living together – […]

9 Years, 3 Months, 1 Day…Poof!

I’ve always wanted this blog to be open and honest. I wanted it to be current and representative of what’s going on in my life. However, something major happened a week ago that I didn’t blog about for a few reaons. The biggest reason was out of respect for Matt. I decided not to post […]

Strange Associations

I received an email this morning that my office is going to have a little party on Friday afternoon in celebration of Halloween and Fly-out Week (a law school phenomenon when classes shut down for 2nd and 3rd year students so they can “fly out” and interview for jobs). The email invitation referenced candy corn. […]

Waiting with Anticip……..ation

My new quilty pleasure is on tonight: The Biggest Loser. I can’t recall the network, nor the time. I just recall stumbling upon it after class last week. You know it’s a sad state of affairs when I crave offensive pseudo-reality television where morbidly obese people compete to win bags of lard. But with everything […]

A Step Back in Time

Although Concord, Massachusetts, is only around 17 miles from downtown Boston it feels like a different world. My friend, Jason, and I went for a drive today. My original goal was to take pictures of the foliage, but it was cloudy all day and the colors weren’t all that spectacular. It also didn’t help that […]

Some Sketchy Activity on the Subway

This morning it was drizzling so I took the subway into Harvard Square (instead of walking as I normally do). The train wasn’t too crowded but all the seats were taken. I stood by doors (knowing that I was getting off at the next stop and wouldn’t be blocking the flow of traffic). As you […]

Curve Balls

If you own a TV, computer, radio or if you have contact with people in your every day life, you probably know by now that the Red Sox beat the Yankees last night…which means they are participating in the play-offs for the first time in 18 years (and which they haven’t won in 86 years). Whoop-di-doo. […]

Common Courtesy…and Magnificently Offensive Network Television

Shortly after class began last night, a student’s cell phone starting ringing (or peforming, since nowadays they actually don’t ring so much as they play music). It gradually got louder until the student stood up and ran out of the room to take the call. Now, at that point, if I had a cell phone, I’d […]

Musical Sacrilege

This morning during my commute I was listening to a CD compilation of Robbie Williams tunes. At one point, his song “Angels” came on. I love this song. In my mind it is pop-song perfection. It made me realize even more how much I hate (nay, loathe) that dreadful Jessica Simpson version. How could Robbie […]
