today i searched for “woody allen” on yelp.com. the boston section, not even the new york one. i got eleven results. doesn’t that seem oddly high? people mention him regarding oysters, an indian restuarant, and a dance club. but who am i to judge. i have the winter blahs so bad that searched woody allen on yelp.
why why WHY won’t mtv release past seasons of the real world on dvd??? i would seriously buy every season up to hawaii. top 5 HOTTEST real world’ers: 5. neil - london 4. eric - new york 3. alton - las vegas 2. issac - syndey 1. jason - boston nowadays its creepy for me to watch the show- cause i’m older than most of ‘em.
sorry for the bad spelling/weird sentences on here so far. maybe this will help me become a better editor of my own work- something im notoriously bad at.

time magazine certainly hasn’t been a go-to publication for me (or many gen y’ers), so i start out a little biased towards this list. but that won’t stop me from perusing some of the links ive never even heard of. i’m a little surprised gawker is on the overrated blog list. time’s reasoning: “But the economic downturn and the near-collapse of Wall Street has...

im on my way. want proof? i even figured out how to add comments to this blog.
not going to lie, i thought i already posted this. but its not showing up. i am still learning this wild west of web publishing so stay with me. this is an installation for my client’s newest eco-friendly checking account. they wanted to generate some buzz for the new account and us folks here at arnold thought we shouldn’t waste a piece of paper doing that. so, todd + habby coded and...

“you’re still in boston?? i haven’t been in boston since college graduation!” i hear this a lot, yet still can’t tell if its said with pity or just plain surprise. yes, i’m still in boston. after graduation i stuck around to wait tables and wait for the next part of my life to reveal itself to me. not too many did the same. most fled by the end of may....
i used to run away from her
me: im going to run away- want to come?
mom: sure. somewhere warm
mom: when are we going I have to pack
last year the client i write for decided to do something really cool. they were launching a new environmentally-focused checking account and wanted to get people excited about it. so, we created interactive windows in their branches. todd + ryan here at arnold coded the whole thing (which is bananas!) and i wrote the copy for what the plants say. i also danced around like a fool for this video.

this is a 100% real letter that was sent by my friend kenny’s aunt. i know it looks long and daunting, but the payoff is worth it. oh and check out kenny’s blog . fun fact about him: out of all my friends, ive seen him naked the most. in a completely non-sexual way, believe me.
i do not know how to manage stress. this seems like an important thing to learn. i do the yoga thing, the working out, the veggie lifestyle and practice domestic compromise. all of these de-stressers seem to only stress me out more. is it that time? have i reached the right of passage known as therapy? it certainly doesn’t have the bad connotations it once did. ok, fine you still seem a...

phone, laptop, antique coke bottle, klean kanteen, mug, minature wooden new york, polaroid of agata and me, zicam, calculator, notebooks, stopwatch, a rubber band, two pens, and 15 cents. and a ceramic bowl that says, “popcorn” on it with the following inside: scissors, vitamins, face lotion, hand lotion, business cards, more pens, mirror and cuticle oil. phew. i obviously do not...
so not safe for work. i can still tell what’s going on through just curse words. amazing.
i had a friend (once) that loved to correct my grammar. he was a writer and found my spelling mistakes, misplaced modifiers and punctuation atrocious. especially since i fancied myself a fellow writer. so imagine my delight today when i caught myself correcting someone else’s lazy writing. i’ve learned! im growing! the student becomes the teacher. the grammar high lasted about an...

remember in batman and robin when mr freeze makes gotham get all iced up and people are just frozen in the street? that’s pretty much boston from october-april. so imagine our surprise when we unfroze this weekend. c and i took advantage of a balmy 49F and traipsed around both saturday and sunday, racking up over 10 miles of sweet city walking. saturday ended with a party at our place and...

two things about me
since everyone (and i mean everyone ) is talking about or doing those facebook lists, i decided to take it easy on you and just tell you two. 1. i am a pretty decent bowler. trite fact, i know. but my skills were just put on display last night and they are blogworthy. 2. if you invite me to a party, bringing something over turns into a competition for me. i want to make a dish that has people...
The tickets are still available and my highest offer is $120 for the pair. Any...– craigslist poster replying to my offer of face value for shepard fairey ica tickets. hello, his art work is made for the masses. for free. in public spaces. and, this is boston. get real.
ug, i already thought of that
i just watched all the superbowl commercials i had missed. reminder for me: write your ideas down. make them real, if possible. In every work of genius we recognize our own rejected thoughts; they come back to us with a certain alienated majesty. Great works of art have no more affecting lesson for us than this. They teach us to abide by our spontaneous impression with good humored inflexibility...
