that all of the modern convieniences that are supposed to help me
organize my life end up overhwelming me, as I spend too much time
making sure that they're all synched.....

Watch the viseo and tell me if it is please. The wife and I fought about this. LoL
The boy and I have started the search for our next apartment (or rental house, or um...large cardboard box, perhaps). It's more than a little intimidating. We've been in Boston for almost 2 years now, so I could go to school, and he could work :) We found the place we're living in now through a broker, and although the Fens have their charm, let's just say we're looking for something a little less...people throwing up and shrieking below our windows at two in the morning, if you know what I mean. We're not looking for anything fancy, really. 1 bedroom plus an office, or a wee second room. Cat friendly.
I crossed the Longfellow Bridge this morning and saw a couple of State Police cruisers stopped at the curb at 1 Main Street. One of the officers was issuing a citation to a driver, and another officer was standing with (what I presume was) a speed gun.
The officer taking speed readings was making hand motions to drivers coming from Boston into Cambridge to slow down. The official speed of the Longfellow Bridge is 30mph, but I don't think I can remember the last time I saw a car stick to that speed (or under it) on the Boston to Cambridge side. The Cambridge to Boston side is a different story, as cars often gets backed up due to the traffic in Charles Circle.
I am in the unenviable situation of having to divorce. I am trying to decide whether to do the legal divorce in the US (MA) or in Brazil, where I reside at the moment (but I also have a legal residence in the US).
I am seeking to know whether there are any predictable advantages or disadvantages in going through the divorce process in Brazil. There is a 7 year old child involved. The father is American and wanting to return to the US now, while I remain in Brazil, at least for the time being.
Does anyone know what a typical settlement looks like in the two places, in terms of finances and child custody? Can anyone give me any useful information?
I wish I could find a decent mechanic here in Boston. Someone who doesn't talk down to women.
I met one of the new downstairs neighbors Sunday morning (I think there's
more than one person living there). Because his (their) music was
louder than the bar I'd been at the night before.
I nearly broke
my hand knocking on his door to ask him to turn it down. To his credit,
he did eventually answer the door and turned it down. Not down enough,
but down. He seemed generally nice.
Now it's Monday night.
Roommate and I have jobs that begin very early. Loud music in the
evenings is not going to be a good thing. And it's not very good music
either- I can't quite identify it, but let's just say synthesizers play
a large role, as do drums. I don't want this to turn into a war, but I
do not see the need to play music at full volume all the time. Oh yeah,
and then they try to talk over it, can't hear each other and yell.I
feel like putting on my Doc Martens and jogging around the apartment.
But I'm not passive-aggressive, so I won't.
This is my personal blog on Universal Hub. Any questions?
Johnny Damon, how can one describe the crulety which you have subjected upon Red Sox Nation. What you have done to YOUR fans is just unfathomable.
Oh, boo hoo. Damon signs with the Yankees, there's no loyalty in sports. That a whole lot of CRAP ! He signed with a team that he knows will win. Boston's front office is a mess, they have no clue what so ever. How do you let one of the best lead off hitters go? They are either really stupid or the Yankees are just better, I'm going with the latter
There is so much tradition with the Yanks, once a Yankee always a Yankee. The all time post season homerun hitter and RBI leader, Bernie Williams takes a huge pay cut, just to stay a Yankee. If that's not loyalty, what is. Damon will end l
First of all, some of you know that today was the big day for our second ultrasound. If you read my past posting you'll understand what I am went through up until 8:30am. If not, today is the day that I can find out the gender of Babydog. Before I get there though.....
thepapadog has one more opportunity to find out the sex of his baby, should he?
...What if it's a girl? Shouldn't I have had at least one boy before her to watch and protect her...
...next week we will be going in for another ultrasound and this time I do have permission to find out the sex if I want to... A part of me wants to know and a part of me doesn't. It's a dilemma that I haven't quite figured out yet. So if anybody out there has actually found my blog, please feel free to give your opinion. You have until 8am December 6th to let me know your thoughts. We'll talk soon.....
I am taking MBTA GM Dan Grabauskasâ€™s advice to heart. I am using blogspace to vent about the Tâ€™s inefficiency.
I can state unequivocally that I have never seen any service improvement due to my participation in the Tâ€™s â€œimmensely popularâ€ (with Mr. Grabauskas) Write to the Top program. I write to the top and get the same form letter each time.
Will I be OK, if I sell my car and rely on the T?

Someone over at Channel 7 seriously needs to drop the thesaurus or get a new one.
Has anyone else noticed how annoying their alliteration is when they are titling these stories? Especially when there's big news, the graphics people go nuts with alliterating everything. During one newscast we counted at least 7 different alliterations, and this was just one one storm report.
With all the crazy weather we're having at the moment, I think we should place our bets on what the alliterations will be tonight. Here are a few that I've thought of:
Boston Radio Watch says that sometime next month Infinity Broadcasting will announce that former Van Halen lead singer David Lee Roth is taking over for Howard Stern in New York City and in several other Stern's East Coast markets, including Boston's WBCN 104.1FM...
Downtown Washington, DC has these signs everywhere. Boston is in desperate need for some:
MoveOn's Eli Pariser will be speaking in Boston Sunday, Oct. 2 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. The event, sponsored by Ford Hall Forum, will be held at Faneuil Hall. It is free and open to the public.

Anyone see the new T billboard off the SE Expressway. It is right before you go in the tunnel. It says:
unleaded super unleaded premium plus... T
3.05 3.15 3.25... (This is the T logo, sorry i can't make it more obvious.)
Glad to see my fare money and taxes are going to tell me the price of gas. The Ts new thing is all about gas prices. The poll on their website is how much do you take the T because of gas prices.
Why am I complaning? Its better than the last sign that said: DependibiliT.
