Enough Already!

Normally, I like big winter storms. Nothing thrills me more between December and February than a nice big blizzard. However, this winter we’ve received only slightly more than six inches of snow. If we get no more, we break a record for the least amount of snow EVER (since record-keeping began back in the 1800’s). […]

What a Difference a Decade Makes

I got together with my friend, Jen, after work last night. We chatted (and laughed) for a few hours at my place then headed over to Hanover Street for dinner. Once again, we ate at Mother Anna’s. I got their amazing baked ziti since I knew I’d have left overs for today’s lunch (I even […]

I Owe Him a Lot

Randy…the poor guy. He’s taken me to Japan. He’s taken me to Mexico. Literally (he used his own frequent flyer miles to get me to those places). He’s also cooked me countless meals, allowed me to stay at his place probably half the nights this past winter, invited me to parties being held by his […]

Food for Thought

I got together with Will (of DesignerBlog) yesterday for a great lunch at Z-Squared, in Harvard Square. I can’t recall the last time we got together one-on-one (we normally get together as part of a group of Boston based bloggers), but it’s definitely been at least 6 months to a year. And so much has […]

Working Muscles I Never Knew I Had

Getting frustrated with my expanding belly, I finally decided to do something about it. Actually, I began about a month or so ago by not taking elevators anymore (and rarely escalators). So at work I climb the 5 floors to my office instead of taking the elevator. At Harvard Station (which is fairly deep under […]

Places to Go, People to See

I’m back from Mexico for less than two weeks and I’m already planning my next trip. Like last summer, I want to return to Europe. The current plan (which has already change a gazillion times in my mind) flies Randy and me into London around Memorial Day weekend. We’ll stay with his friends for a […]

My Civic Obligation

It’s been a busy 48 hours. On Tuesday, I had my first dental cleaning in nearly a year (I had to cancel my scheduled one at the end of last year because of my trip to Japan). Despite that fact that the new dental hygienist was a bit sadistic with the scraper, I came out […]

Living in a Fantasy World

This may come as no surprise to many of you but I can get worked up rather easily. Plant a seed in my head and my mind starts wandering immediately. I alluded to this yesterday in my blog, but Randy and I were talking on the phone over the weekend about his current trip to […]

Monday, Monday – Can’t Trust that Day

Yawn. Overall I had a good (relaxing) weekend. I borrowed Randy’s car and went down to the Cape to visit my family. Our activities involved the same old – same old: conversation, food, card games, food, DVD, food, shopping, food, computer repair, food. We also ate a lot of food (as all senior citizens do, […]

Doing my Part

I’ve been tagged by Chris (of Chris-Says) to share stuff about myself. How unlike me to talk about myself! Ahem – no comments from the peanut gallery. Anyway, here you go: List 10 things you want to say to 10 people you know, but never will for whatever reason. Don’t say who they are. Use […]
