Today I had someone call me a “failed artist”. Before you get all irate on my behalf, I’m not offended by this. I’d rather be what this person defines as a failed artist than a successful…I don’t know, pretty much anything else. This person’s definition of a failure is anyone who has the audacity to […]

The holiday season is here. Not fast approaching. Not on its way. Brace yourself, it has arrived. Whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanza or Festivus, this time of year becomes a hectic mesh of holiday gatherings with family, friends and co-workers. For all the frivolity, to be honest, it stresses me out. All the cooking, […]

So, I’m still working on getting a grip on things for some longer posts, but today, today I ate my lunch in the park. It is a perfect day. The sun is shining (which it hasn’t done in a while), it is warm without being stifling, and the clouds make interesting and beautiful shapes. […]

One of my favorite movies is The Princess Bride. R.O.U.S.’s (Rodents Of Unusual Size) are real. Meet Patrick, 2-year-old wombat…that is one large rodent. Keep on the lookout for the six-fingered man, and I’m going to go watch Wesley and Buttercup. As you wish, Jessica

Okay, so maybe this is a bit extreme, but in addition to the NE Aquarium, Freedom Trail, Salem, Fenway, and Sam Adams Brewery I had to tell you about the food (and beer). One of the great experiences of any vacation is trying out the local cuisine. Coming from a landlocked state, I jump at […]

Catch part one, part two, and part three too. My best friend received tickets to see the Red Sox play in Fenway along with dinner at Strega for her birthday gift (okay, so maybe it was a bit of a gift to myself too). The day of the game dawned cold and rainy. Now when I […]

You can catch up with part one and part two, if you missed them. During our stay, we took a day trip out to Salem to see the location of the infamous Salem Witch Trials. The town has more little museums, occult themed gift stores and store fronts for psychics than any place I’ve been […]

Just in case you missed it, Boston: Part One – The New England Aquarium can be read here! One of my favorite things about Boston is the history. Seriously, I loved Washington, DC. The nation’s capital contains so much of what makes the United States, but Boston is really where it all started. When politicians […]

My Boston trip doesn’t fit into one post…plus, as my best friend will attest, I may be a little camera-happy on vacations. What can I say? I want to remember stuff! For this trip, we rented a condo for the week instead of choosing a hotel. I have to say, I don’t plan on doing […]

I got all excited about a headline I saw today. Sherlock Season 4 “Closer”! Did they really mean closer to release? Did I miss something? Nope, but Mark Gatiss tells Radio Times that they’re closer to getting a date to start filming. This is the problem with a show with fantastically talented and popular creators […]
