Yesterday, when I was near the end of my long commute home (on 980 just before 24, if you must know) I encountered an obnoxious driver. “That driver is obnoxious,” I thought, as he swerved around me while I was signaling a lane change, then almost ran someone who was merging onto the freeway off … Read more
My dad’s family is from Rhode Island, and I have a lot of childhood summer memories of hanging out at my grandparents’ in Narragansett.

The conference went through Friday morning, but the sessions ended early on Thursday afternoon, so I had some … Read more
Another trip, another mad race through the airport (this time, barefoot) and another fancy hotel charging way too much for internet access. Which is why blogging is, yet again, delayed, with the added bonus that I’m actually prewriting my posts longhand because, while my lovely Cape Cod B&B (more on that later) does have free … Read more
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo I can’t accept it. I won’t. BattleDivas Forever!
