Reading Too Much Into Things

I went to the hospital yesterday to visit my friend, Regina. I rode the elevator up to the 8th floor and walked towards her room. When I got to the door, I noticed that it was open – but the lights were out. Then I saw two men with their heads bowed. The man facing […]


After work yesterday I met up with my friend, Vito, for dinner. We decided to meet on the corner of Boylston and Tremont Streets(across the street from the Boylston subway station). I got there a bit early and thoroughly enjoyed myself watching the commuters and Emerson College students criss-crossing the intersection. I don’t regularly get […]

When it Rains, it Pours

Have you ever noticed that when you’re not necessarily looking for something, you get offers for lots of that very something?  Back in my youthful single days, I couldn’t get a date to save my life (I prefer to attribute that to laziness and shyness versus being butt-ugly). Yet, in the rare event that I […]

Tears On My Pillow

Hey, everybody. I had intended to update my blog yesterday by writing about the fabulous time I had on Peaks Island in Maine last weekend. Rich and I had lots of fun visiting with my childhood best-friend, Missy (and her hubby and kids), and then took the ferry back to the mainland to play tourist […]

Pretty in Pink

They don’t make them like they used to. Anytime you start something off by saying that it clearly means only one thing: you’re old. I guess I’m dating myself by saying this but I believe it’s true – they really don’t make movie soundtracks like they used to. I mean, I know that there were […]

Slow Emotion Replay

I stole this idea from Robert (see his blog link to the right…mrhappysad). The task is to choose a band/artist and then answer the following questions only using song TITLES by that artist/band.   I selected The The* as the band/artist of choice.   Are you male or female: Another Boy Drowning   Describe yourself: […]

A Moving Experience

OK – too much information alert: I read in the bathroom. There. I said it. Yes, I bring a magazine in with me. I’m not proud of the fact, but it’s true. I’ve done this since childhood and I’m likely not to change. Now stop judging me because that’s not the point of this blog […]

Familiar, but Foreign

I work at a law school so you’d think I’d be comfortable around lawyers. In fact, in the work place, I’m quite comfortable around them since I’ve work for them, with them and around them on a daily basis for nearly 5 years. But lately I’ve noticed that I don’t enjoy dealing with lawyers on […]


I still managed to have a nice weekend even though I still feel like I’m fighting something. I guess I should feel fortunate that my little bug wasn’t the flu…nor was it a cold. I had a few REALLY bad days of aches and pains, but no vomitting and no congestion. Now that the aches […]

Voice (Non)Recognition

Sometimes, it’s just easier to deal with a human being. I had forgotten to contact my life insurance policy carrier (Prudential) when I moved in December so I tried contacting them yesterday to update my address. Using last year’s premium statement, I dialed the 800# and got their automated system. First things first – I […]
