For your information, Hairdo, this year I’ve decide to stop living the same goddamned day over and over again. “How does one do that?” you ask.

Simple. A humongous leap (or two) of freaked out faith.

I’m starting a business. Sure I’ve three burly partners, but it’s still scary. And thrilling.

I’m also getting married. Only one burly partner in this case, but also still scary. And thrilling.

I feel like my whole life is just starting and am getting a bit misty with optimism. Just though I’d share that.


All this…

…will soon be mine!!!  Bwah ah ah!

Actually we need an investor.  But right after that, let the diabolical laughter continue.

I have my own doll! It’s about damn time the folks over at American Girl got around to me.

“Lanie™ Holland longs to get outside to explore and experience the great outdoors. But she dreams of exotic adventures in far-off places — not realizing there are outdoor adventures to be had right in her Boston-area neighborhood.

Lanie doll and book

But with the help of her Aunt Hannah, Lanie discovers the joys of butterfly and vegetable gardening — and birding and camping — in her own backyard. These outdoor adventures open Lanie’s eyes to the natural world and help her really see — and value — the nature that is all around her.”

The lesson to be learned here, girls:

Boston is better than any far-off place you can imagine.  I hope you can really see this.   So stop looking at flights to Spain and go do some yard work.

We recently ordered the special disc that allows you to stream zillions of movies instantly from NetFlix to your PS3, and consequently to your big ol’ TV.  It’s awesome.  They have a whole category devoted to British Romantic Dramas.  I AM NOT KIDDING.  It’s amazing how NetFlix seems to know me so well.  Now I don’t have to finish reading Jane Eyre. The fact that that category even exists in the first place makes me think that somewhere out there the owner of Netflix and the owner of Play Station are sitting around over beers trying to figure out how they’re going to get their girlfriends to let them keep their PS3s around so they can play Call of Duty…

I have a new favorite thing.  Two actually.  They’re like bedroom slippers that are appropriate for outdoors – though I suppose the appropriateness of plaid shoes is debatable.  We went to the Farmers’ Market, Intelligentsia and to 4100 Bar together.  Maybe now we’ll walk the dog….the possibilities are endless when your feet are wrapped in cushy, fleecy goodness.
