Playing Tourist Without Leaving Town

Mark (from Paris) is now gone – but I think we all collectively showed him a good time during his first trip to Boston. He stayed with Ben and Brad (the ones who introduced me to him) for the first few nights and with me the last few nights. Between Thursday and Saturday I brought […]

A Sense of Relief

I met with my new financial planner this morning. I wasn’t impressed with my last one – especially after she left the state and working with her became impossible. My new one is a lesbian (I wanted somebody familiar with the complexities of a gay person’s tax and inheritance concerns). This was our second meeting […]

And with meetings on other floors and going to the cafeteria (or nearby restaurants) for lunch each day, I go up and […]

You Take the Good, You Take the Bad, You Take Them Both and There You Have…

…the Facts of Life. The Facts of Life. I had a fairly productive weekend – personally and socially. Friday night I got together with a bunch of friends for wine and food (Anna’s Taqueria in Davis Square for the food part). MMMMMMM Speaking of facts of life…it’s a fact of life that you’ll find bargains […]
