Blowing kisses across the room

Blogging the Academy Awards…….
I’m so psyched that The Rock is hosting. I’m hoping he’ll come out and be silent for about 30 seconds and just look around, left to right, up and down. The crowd would be going nuts and then he’d raise his eyebrow and be all like “finally……….The Rock will announce the jabroni [...]

Cue The Jefferson’s Music

Settling into new cyber-digs here. These large scale changeovers seem to get easier and easier each time I do them. Of course, the design I have to do is pretty minimal, as Blogger takes care of most of it, but I’m diggin’ the new look.

Tonight will be a somewhat bittersweet night for me. I’m going to see Gary Louris & Mark Olsen perform in Somerville, MA. Louris & Olsen were the lead singers in a Minneapolis-based band called The Jayhawks. They launched their band in the late 1980s in the Twin Cities, swimming very much against the current of [...]

They don’t much deserve my space (and they won’t get much of it), but the NHL got what it had coming. As if the league didn’t have enough challenges already:
- a dreadfully boring game
- too many teams
- sagging attendance in previously strong markets
- a laughable TV contract
Now it’s “chairs-on-your-desks” for the season, amidst many shoulder [...]

I may have mentioned here recently that I received one of the world’s best board games, Scrabble, for Christmas. Back when I was single and living in a 5-bedroom house in Allston, Mass., we used to try and play Scrabble every Sunday night. In fact, evidence of these games actually still exist. Bless the web.
