There is a thing at Boston.com that I found important. A blog post about Universal Studios offering a VIP package which would allow folks to, among other things, skip the monstrous lines and instead wait in a small, speedy queue. This is of course a very good thing. Waiting sucks.... Continue reading

The Battle of Fallujah is an ice cream social compared to even one day mired within the brutal walls inside the Lexington School system. Don't laugh. It is so bad on our poor children that it became apparent to all that Lexington High students needed an emergency "Stress Reduction Day."... Continue reading

Click Here to hear the NPR audio Because the talk radio landscape is so barren in Boston I am occasionally forced to leave the weather band and dip my toe in the waters over at NPR. I pay for it, right? The program I ran into yesterday is called "On... Continue reading

As you know by now, President Obama's Secret Service guy is an actual alien. Yes, it's not even disputable anymore. The only problem I have is that we know from movies that aliens always mean harm, hard as we try to win their love....... They get unhinged very quickly and... Continue reading

Kara,you need to work through this and focus your ire where it belongs, on Caillou.

I have no real problem with Mickey Mouse. In fact, he plays a large role in my house, serving as spiritual leader to my two-year-old daughter. There is no one she loves as much as Mickey Mouse. Not me. Not her mother. No one. If Mickey or any other major... Continue reading

Did Caillou tell you that it's cool to call people "Bro"? Are you BEAST friends? Yes and Yes.

I hope you are sitting down. For a great truth has revealed itself and it will change your life. A new study from England (Steven Hawking is from there so,yeah) claims that drinking heavily does not make men and women drop their standards and hookup with someone they might otherwise...

If you have reached a point in your life where you need the federal government of the United States of America-the greatest superpower on Earth- to step in and stop you from eating yourself to death(talk about first-world problems) then you have failed as a human being. I am a... Continue reading

It was Sir Robert Frost who spoke of Winter's angry onslaught in 1856 - "She hath the fury to unfurl in frigid enormity that which could only attack with consent of heaven, and a wink from the devil."* Personally, I like to use this kind of weather event to trot... Continue reading

This reporter is so right. Plastered cocktail warriors are the real zombies. You're at the bar and you see him stumbling along, using other patrons like Tarzan uses vines. You know he's coming your way and he's gonna want to talk to you, just because you attract them. He sloppily... Continue reading

A few weeks back, in a groundbreaking move I created the Hollywood Hall of Fame to celebrate the great movies, actresses and actors who got screwed at the Oscars. It is time to induct a gentleman who should have received a Best Supporting Actor nod but was denied because the... Continue reading

(Our nanny, totally under-dressed as usual. Kids, right?!) It is approximately 30 below zero here in Melrose, Massachusetts. It occurs to me that if my heat breaks I will die. I don't know how to fix a heater-thingy. And I don't know how to build a fire. So I will... Continue reading

Over the years Elmo's legend has expanded the world-over and tragically his sadistic and foul cackle has propelled him to iconic muppet status. "Elmo want this!", "Elmo want... Continue reading

For a good snapshot of the stuff Generation Y is made of it is wise to go to their territory, to places where they are completely uninhibited and encouraged to bare their fatuous little souls. So I checked-in to the photo gallery section of one of their coolest Boston clubs(I... Continue reading
