I feel like I have not been myself lately, and by that I mean, the thought of lying around and doing nothing for longer than an hour no longer repulses me. I am not constantly restless nor do I have the need to be always doing something productive. Is it because I love my apartment […]’s 25 things to do in Boston for under $25 plus my own spin

Friday, January 16th, 2009

It won’t just be the freezing cold weather that will kept me hibernating in my little apartment this winter – it’s a tight budget. If you read my blog regularly at all and if you are from Boston, I am willing to bet that we are in the same boat. So before we cave into […]

i’m getting there with tofu

Thursday, January 15th, 2009

So I am really working through these resolutions – I am getting closer to accepting tofu into my life.

Friday, January 9th, 2009

I sign up for so many emails lists and newsletters that I usually have to delete them to avoid getting my inbox into double digits.  Taking the time to open the ones I don’t read and actually unsubscribe would be less time consuming than deleting unread emails everyday, but for some reason I can’t bring […]

a couple of faux yuppies in boston

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

You may or may not remember, but on Saturday it was date night for me and Mike and on this night, we were truly faux-yuppies. Pomodoro in the North End is the size of my living room. It has grey walls and a black ceiling, which you think would make it seem smaller but somehow- […]
