…to the “Need/Want List,” please! The Line – the movie from Marco Toniolo on Vimeo. And a trip to Italy…but without the murderous mountain bikers… [Via CSG. Thanks!]

Opened my bike case today. Got my heart broken.

Sometime around 2003, I became addicted to Law and Order. It wasn’t my gateway TV series into bad TV shows [that was probably CSI] or law school [that may have been Ally McBeal], but that may have been because I believed so strongly in the reality of the characters themselves. I believed that in a [...]

I was born in the year of the pig [or, as I like to call it, the year of the boar]. I don’t say this to justify my adoration of food, but because, by sheer luck [or misfortune], the year in which I was born blessed me with a streak of stubbornness and, worse, a [...]

“Water safe for consumption,” the subject line of the email read. So Boston’s back to being a normal city in an otherwise developed country, and I can finally wash my hands with unboiled water.

She gets out every sequined whatever out of her closet, tries them all on with every high-heeled shoe she owns, then sits on her [...]

I am obsessed with trashy TV shows like “Intervention” [and yes, "Obsessed"]. I’m not ashamed to say that I’ll watch episodes of “Intervention” on Hulu while I’m on my rollers, morbid fascination allowing me to momentarily forget how much my legs are hurting. Crack addicts, meth heads, anorexics, cutters…It’s addictive. I can’t stop. One episode [...]

With bicycles, the more you know, the more you know how much you don’t know when you know something’s wrong. At least as applied to me. “I think it’s my bottom bracket,” I’ll say. “Um…no…that looks okay. It’s your [chainring/freewheel/chain/any other part that is not my bottom bracket],” will be the reply from a trusted [...]
