Sex on the Beach Isn’t Just a Drink

Ah, Cape Cod. Driving through Falmouth you’ll find a lovely typical weather-shingled cottage with green grass and an adorable little display of flowers at the side of the road. There’s even a little sign telling people to take some flowers and put some money in a little tin. Such charm. So quaint. There must be […]

Using My “Get Out of Jail Free” Card

As most of you know, a friend of mine died in March and listed me as executor of her estate in the will. What I never mentioned is the very “Knott’s Landing” portion of this situation. I guess I didn’t share this information because my friend didn’t even share this information with her friends or family. […]

I’m Off to the Place That’s Perfect for the Gemini in Me.

Yes, in a few hours I’ll be flying to the Twin Cities. Well, specifically Minneapolis with some scenic trips through St. Paul. I’m really looking forward to it. This is an area I’ve never really given much thought to, but have heard people rave about (very friendly, very clean, very green, good urban planning). So, […]


I rarely write about the MBTA (the “T”), Boston’s public transit system. For the most part, I have no issues with it. Although there are pockets of areas where access is inconveneint, living downtown makes thing incredibly convenient for me. I’m within blocks of 2 Green-line stops, 2 Orange lines stops, the commuter rail, a major […]

Connect the Dots

I’m always fascinated by how connections are made. Often times, it’s all about being in the right place at the right time (such as the kidnapping rescue I referenced yesterday). But there are also negative examples of this: the wrong place at the wrong time. Off the top of my head I can cite a […]

The Good Ole Days…

…probably weren’t all that good. I’ve lived my life with blinders on. I’m not saying that’s a negative thing. In most cases I think it can be a good thing. But I’m beginning to question whether the good ole days were, in fact, so good. The CBS Morning News has been updating a 20 year […]

Flinching with Friends

You may (or may not) be happy to know that I have potentially found a new addiction to call my own. Believe it or not, this time it’s not even television related! In fact, this one harks back to a time when families owned only one TV (probably black-and-white) and spent their quality family time […]

One Down, Two to Go

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Did you hear a huge sigh of relief this morning? If so, it was me. After three and a half months, I’ve finally closed on the sale of Regina’s condo (the friend who died of breast cancer). There were concerns that it wasn’t going to take place (contingenies, unresponsive attornies, etc…). But everything worked out in […]

My Day of Theatre

I got to have lunch with Will (of Designerblog….see link to right) yesterday. In the past we’ve met up in Harvard Square for lunch, but I’d been wanting to see his environment so I took the subway to Kendall Square and went to his office on the MIT campus. Aside from being an incredibly cool […]

Childhood Crush Revisted

Being the TV addict that I am, I’m constantly flipping stations to see what I can find. Also being a fan of nostalgia, I tend to gravitate towards shows I used to watch as a kid. Most recently, I’ve stumbled upon the 1970’s series, Good Times. I’ve been watching it fairly regularly for the past […]
