trip to fenway with c’s grandmother

So this past weekend C. and I went on this little road trip through New England to take her 86-year-old grandmother to the Red Sox game. As I mentioned before, her grandmother is a huge BoSox fan who has watched every game but one for the past two years. It has been something to, in […]

I am feeling much more settled today than I did at my last two birthdays.

Here is a very sweet email my father sent me this morning:

So, today, 35 years […]

‘live free or die hard’

I was not really into Live Free or Die Hard. It was decent — I’d give it maybe 2 1/2 stars? It reminded me a little bit of Terminator 3 in being a sequel of a really good movie that I couldn’t really find myself to care that much about. I kinda feel like superhero […]
