See ya Monday, Boston.

If you asked any of my friends last year what my favorite day of the year was, they would have told you Marathon Monday. They’d explain to you how every year I start the day off with mimosas, go to the Sox game, head to Kenmore to cheer on the runners, and end the day... More

Next Year.

Looking back now, it’s a little strange. Once things slowed down–after the death toll was capped and the injuries and amputations were added up, and after the manhunt and the bombers were killed and captured– there was this one idea that kept running through my mind. It went quiet here and there, but not for... More

Dear Rolling Stone…

Happy now, Rolling Stone? Everyone is talking about your magazine. You guys are so edgy. Who thought this was okay. Who thought it was ok to put the marathon bomber on the cover of your magazine, looking like he’s the lead singer of The fucking Strokes. Willie Nelson, Jay-Z, and the fucking marathon bomber.

Reader Question: Is it okay to unfriend an ex on facebook?

  Ah. Great question. Exes are tough. I’m not sure I believe that exes can truly be friends.

Why I stopped watching Shark Week

Guys, it’s Shark Week. Not that I really care. Shark Week hasn’t mattered in my life for about 4 years. I used to circle this week on my calendar. Now I need to see it trending on twitter to even remember it. This isn’t going to be a popular thing to say, but sometimes unpopular... More

TWSS Parties Experienced Through Classic Movie Quotes

Every TWSS bash is awesome. I will never get sick of them. I’ve been able to attend around 4 or 5 since I joined the team and each one is crazier than the last.
