subtitle (or excerpt)

I was excited to learn that Fenway would be featuring veggie burgers and veggie hotdogs for the 2010 season and eager to try them out. Friday I had a chance to sample the veggie hotdogs (couldn’t find the burgers, maybe next game).
You may have to walk around the park for a bit to find the […]

Rudy’s Can’t Fail (but my memory can)

subtitle (or excerpt)

Somewhat more than a year ago, a co-worker was leaving, and Rudy’s Cafe was proposed as the farewell lunch destination. I was way psyched, probably because the cod tacos sounded somewhat like the catfish tacos that Polly’s Cafe used to serve — one of my all-time favorites. We wound up going to Redbones instead.

New what-can-I-eat-at-a-turnpike-rest-stop? favorite: Cajun Hot Sticks. One by itself isn’t very hot, but they ramp up fast, and after a few of mouthfuls, I need to stop for a while. At the current rate, an 8 ounce package of this snack will last me about a week. Unfortunately, not everything unhealthy has this effect, […]

OMG JamSpot so totally rocks! When I first heard about this place, I figured there was no way I could afford to rehearse there. Nice equipment in good condition, rooms with honest-to-goodness acoustic treatment, and ample off-street parking!? But it turns out, JamSpot’s rates are completely competitive with the typical scuzzy rehearsal rooms I’m used […]

caffeine count

What have I learned from this experiment? After 4 weeks of keeping track, I’m still very conscious of the need to make decisions that won’t lead to 6+ cup days. I’ve started alternating coffee with water in the morning to stretch out my caffeine allowance. Can’t rule out placebo effect, but I think I’ve been […]

aging; tangents

subtitle (or excerpt)

Although it scarcely seems possible, I’m older now than I was before. Actually, I’m older now than when I typed that, but I recently passed one of those points where society asserts that you’ve made a quantum state change from n-old to n+1 old.
I commemorated the occasion, in part, by checking the weather in Montréal, […]
