No, it's not when you miss the last train to Haverhill because the Orange Line was delayed. It's people realizing too late they're looking for love on the T. We eagerly await MBTA Forum, with letters that begin, "Dear MBTA Forum, I never thought I'd be writing something like this, but ..."
Daisy Razor reports on some attempted flirting on the Riverside Line today.
Have you marked your calendar for Boston SlutWalk 2011 on May 7?
Why are you walking around Boston in minimal clothing and calling yourselves 'sluts'?
Slut-shaming is a huge part of being a young grrrl in today's society. As is rape culture. This is a walk to protest both slut-shaming and rape culture. It's a walk to take back the word SLUT in order to show that the nature of your being is not determined by how many sexual partners you have.
This weather plus allston = really awesome walks of shame. White leggings, 4inch ankle boots, sequin top, thin coat.
UPDATE: Ashley alerts us that she was not herself on one of those walks.
Happened Dec. 12. Anybody happen to see it?
I made a mistake recently. Actually, I don't know if it was a mistake or not.
I hooked up with a friend of mine. But I do not regret what we did.
I have known him for a couple of years and really love him as a friend. I don't really know why we ended up getting together, but it just happened. And now it's kind of awkward between the two of us. Whenever we used to hang out we would cuddle and tell each other that we love each other and cute shit because we are pretty close friends and both people who cuddle a lot I guess. But now when we hang out I am afraid to act like I used to because I do not want him to interpret that as me being interested in him in a romantic way. I don't think I want to be with him in any way other than friends but while I am unsure of my emotions I am pretty sure he wants to be just friends with me.
We haven't talked about what happened or asked each other how we felt about it at all. I don't know if I want to ask to talk to him about it or not because I don't know if that would make it less awkward or more awkward.

Ed caution: Those of you who lived through the '70s who have no wish for flashbacks are cautioned that Hilliard is sporting some serious sideburns to go with his Davey Jones hair.
You don't want to start things off on the rocks, because in her excitement, she might drop the thing and you'll never see it again.
Cambridge Police report that around 11 a.m. on Sunday, officers were dispatched to Mass. Ave. and Temple Street on a report of a pedestrian being hit by a car:

So I took Ramona on her usual dog walk tonight with much trepidation. Last night's altercation has been weighing on me all day. I certainly did not want another incident like last night and at the same time I do not want to be intimidated away from the park which I only use 10 mins in the morning and the evening everyday. As I was making my rounds I ran into the other dogwalker who witnessed the whole argument. I was ready to pounce on him for slinking away BUT he apologized profusely for the other person's behavior and how disgusted he was at what happened. He went on to say that I was completely in the right and that dog has been aggressive to other dogs in the park. Both the guys who walk Jazzy do absolutely nothing about her and he is going to have a talk with the guy who I argued with last night. It was completely uncalled for. I cannot tell you how vindicated I felt. Since Jazzy's owner is friendly with many other dog owners in the park I was worried about my relationship with the other walkers. I feel so much better knowing that there are people who get it.
I have been meaning to write this post for a while. Tonight pushed me over the edge.
I have a 13+ year old dog who is literally on her last legs. Luckily I live across from Highland Park in the Fort Hill neighborhood of Roxbury. Since I moved in over 2 years ago I have been walking Ramona at Fort Hill everyday. There is a small dog community who let their dogs off leash up there. A majority of them are very nice. I keep Ramona on a leash most of the time because she cannot really run anymore, but in her prime I used to run her at dog parks all over the city: Franklin Park, Peter's Hill, Fresh Pond, S. End etc.
I can only shake my head when I see those white posters with the iconic red crosses at the campus where I work.
Give blood? Sure.
Except that my blood is not the right kind of blood. My donation, after completing the form in which I am asked point-blank about my sex life, will be summarily thrown awayâ€“despite the fact that this blood could save another life.

This missed connection ad on Craigslist reads like a modern day love poem. Bearded men of Boston...pull your faces out of the PBR pitcher, it looks like someone has their eye on you...
Karin reports some guy just canceled a date with her so he can watch the World Series with his roommate tonight.
Annelise reports some chick in Atlanta who can't actually say no to the boys who want the digits is giving out her phone number up here in the Boston area. Like Lil' B and his crew:
... I'm keeping my phone on at night because my sister is extremely pregnant and I want to be woken up if she goes into labor. I do not appreciate Lil' B texting and calling me all night long. ...
