Recently I was visiting my parents in Massachusetts and my mother made lobster for dinner. Hey - up where they live, that's not a big fancy thing. They drive on over to a seafood shack where a dude in waders has literally just hauled a bunch of lobsters up in his boat. They're cheap, they're fresh, ... Read more...

I live in a place where living a ‘sustainable’ lifestyle is important. People care about their environmental impact and carbon footprint and whatever. I do too, I suppose, in that I’m willing to recycle and cut back on driving and I haven’t dumped my used cooking oil in a river in at least a... Read more...

I just learned that there’s a new Megadeth album coming out next week. Maybe I’m behind the times, and the rest of the world has known about this for months. I did take the Dave Mustaine poster down from my ceiling about 15 years ago. Is that guy even still in the band? Is that guy even still... Read more...

Over the weekend I watched Grey Gardens and it made me realize that I am one divorce and seven cats away from being that sad old lady in a printed scarf who you sometimes spy in the grocery store, thumping on melons and taking a really long time to choose between various brands of oatmeal. It’s... Read more...

There's a nerdy teenager who lives in my neighborhood. I know this not because I've seen him, but because he's constantly dropping nerdy teenager-like papers on the sidewalk, in front of the same house. I've seen notes to his friends, school assignments, angry musings about his parents, a frightenin... Read more...

I'm currently sitting on a train, commuting to work, and there's a dude who I think is having a very loud fight with his mother. I say 'I think' because he's on the phone, so I can only glean from his yelling that it's a fight. And I can only glean from the fact that he's whining about a sandwich th... Read more...

But does she put up with his buuuullshit? A plastic surgeon in LA has transformed his once perfectly attractive partner into what he's billing as the 'perfect wife,' a franken-lady collage of culturally ideal body parts.  The doc has also tweaked his own physique, so he now resembles a wax figur...

So good to see that slut-shaming is still the national sport. If women were free to exhibit sexuality without inciting public scorn, I'd be worried that maybe I'd just awoken from a Rip Van Winkle-like coma. Mom? Dad? What do you mean, they've been dead for 474 years and women are no longer judged b... Read more...

Just cracked open the ole laptop to see what's going on in the world, and I discovered this:   Scout's not the only one. Check out Ricochet, who keeps his own blog, catches waves in costume, gives comfort to people in wheelchairs, and walks red carpets? STEP IT UP, SCOUT. Is this a... Read more...

Picture this: You're sitting at your desk, faced with a groaning pile of work that you can't make yourself do. You know you should get started because it's already late, and your boss is already pissy about it. Still, it's so much that you don't know where to start. So instead of firing up the ole '...
