Starring in the Remake of “Meet the Parents”

Today’s the today! At 4:51 this afternoon I should be seated on a tiny puddle jumper of an airplane with Randy en route to Roanoke, Virginia, to meet the in-laws. Well, there are no flights to Roanoke so we’re actually flying into Washington, DC, and then driving…3+ hours. For some reason, I’m not nervous about […]

A Lovely Day For It

Yesterday was such a lovely day…almost autumn-like. We had intended to join my friend Jason and Bryan for dinner in Boston as part of Restaurant Week but Jason was a) sick and b) delayed at Penn Station in New York (I blame it on too much screaming at the Justin Timberlake concert, but he assures […]

Feasto, Baggo, Beacho

I’ve commented on this before, but I find it so funny that when I talk politics (as I did on Friday), I tend to get few (if any) comments. But when I talk about frivolous things (day-to-day observations, silly things that annoy me), I’ll get comments. Hmmm – maybe my audience is telling me something. […]

I Wouldn’t Really Call it a Debate

I decided to watch the presidential debate on LoGo last night. For those of you out there without expanded cable, LoGo is a gay cable network (if African-Americans, women, and catholics can get their own TV station, why not the homos?) and the presidential debate was more of an individual question and answer session than […]

What Do You Get for the Man Who Has Everything?

I love birthdays. I love Christmas. I love gifts. Well, at least I love the idea of all of those things. I hate the actual act of giving gifts. It has nothing to do with the expense, it has to do with the inability to know what others might want. I always feel a bit heart-broken when […]

The Life of a Married Man

While Randy and I were in Japan last year, I ended up tagging along to a business dinner with him and his colleagues. In fact, that was where I ate a scorpion. In San Francisco last month, I joined him on business dinners at least 3 or 4 of the nights we were there. And […]

Everything Old is New Again

My work computer was upgraded yesterday. I kept my existing monitor since it’s better than what most people get at Harvard (it’s a flat screen that pivots so you can view word documents in full on the screen), but the rest of my system is new. It’s faster…I definitely like that. But for some reason […]

My People…

My people left EngLAND on the Mayflower in 1620 and settled Massachusetts. My people have remained in southern New EngLAND for nearly 400 years. My people have lived off the LAND. My people are a hearty bunch: capable of enduring everything mother nature has brought their way: hurricanes, blizzards, nor’easters….even earthquakes (yes, New EngLAND has […]

Damn Metabolism

Actually, maybe it’s not metabolism. You know how they say your body changes every 7 years (I don’t know who “they” are, but I’ve always heard that). Well, Over the past two years…and for the first time in my life…I seem to have developed allergies. I was prescribed Flonase and it definitely does the job. […]

I’m Infected.

…by the travel bug. I decided to customize a Google Map to indicate my travels. It shows where I’ve lived, where I’ve visited, and where I want to go in the future. Fun stuff…but probably not something that will excite the masses. However, seeing as I’m a giver, I’ve posted a link to my map […]
