Worshipping False Gods

Over the weekend there was an article in the Boston Globe (on-line) from the Associated Press. Apparently, much of the south is in an uproar because Halloween falls on a Sunday. One brilliant woman was quoted as saying: “That’s Christ’s day. You go to church on Sunday, you don’t go out and celebrate the devil. […]

The Weekend Already

I just realized that it’s Friday (and payday). YAY. This week has flown by. I suppose the Monday holiday helped…but I’ve noticed that this whole fall has been speeding on by for me. I’m already a month into my two classes (which are taking up a good chunk of my free time) and the situation […]

Massachusetts – the New Four-Letter Word

I actually intended for this blog to be full of random nothingness and humorous observations of my (boring) life, but I guess it’s inevitable that politics would come up since it’s an election year. I’ve noticed the same thing in countless other blogs that never intended to be political but have lately ranted about one issue or another. […]

Political Hoo-Ha

The fact that I’m gay, from Massachusetts and work at Harvard pretty much makes it obvious which way I lean politically so I’m not even going to go there. But what I did want to point out was some news I read in the Boston Globe this morning about voters in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. […]

It’s Official – I’ve Even Bored Myself to Death

This was a holiday weekend for me so I’m just returning to work this morning. As you may (or may not) have noticed, I didn’t post anything over the weekend. A good chunk of the reason can be attributed to laziness (something I’m proud to say I’ve mastered over the years). However, an equally large […]

Poop and Circumstance

The Barnum and Bailey Ringling Brothers Circus is town and takes place next door to our condo at the Fleet Center. Since North Station is under the Fleet Center I’ll be passing by everyday for the next 10 days that it’s here. I never really gave this much though until this morning as I approached the […]

Granola Bars from God

There are many advantages to living in a city. You get world-class museums, endless restaurants to choose from, an active theatre scene, nightlife, history, architecture, culture and more. But some of my favorite benefits are the freebies. You see it all the time: people hawking free things to people outside subway stations or tourist attractions. I’ve been […]

My Time of Year

I’m sure a number of my fellow New Englanders are grumbling about the cool temperatures this morning – but I love it! This is exactly the kind of weather I like. It’s beautiful! Bright and sunny skies and temperatures that warrant a light jacket or sweater. I can walk briskly and not work up a […]

Taking Things Literally

I think Matt was paying too much attention to the movie, “A Dirty Shame”, in which twelve sexual apostles each have their own unique sexual fetish. Check out Matt’s blog (link to the right) and read yesterday’s entry. It’s funny because last night I went out for dinner in the North End with some friends. […]

My Weekend Summary (the adventures were endless – don’t you wish you were me?)

I’m hoping the sarcasm in that heading was obvious. My Friday began with Financial Planning homework. To be honest, although the workload is greater than I had expected, I’m finding the topic very interesting and helpful. Matt can attest to this but I’m frugle (Matt says cheap: Poh-tay-toh, poh-tah-toh*). So reading about how to most […]
