Oh Shoot, I Want Those Shoes…

Date: Fri, Mar 27, 2009 Wine Tasting

By writing this I am admitting personal failure on two fronts.  I tried to avoid writing about tango in order to project the image that I have a multi-dimensional life.  I also never wanted to be a “shoe person”. I think I can pretty easily equate my lack of writing to my resistance to blogging about [...]

*sigh of relief*

Date: Wed, Mar 25, 2009 Wine Tasting

I have been having some knee pain since my outdoor run, and was getting concerned. After speaking with the person at Marathon Sports, it basically came down to either tenodonitis or shoes. I did some work with the foam roller today (which is a miraculous but simple apparatus) and ran 4 miles with no pain. [...]

Watch out for Generation ME

Date: Tue, Mar 24, 2009 Wine Tasting

In my field, “millennial” has become a four-letter word that means coddled, self-righteous, internet-savvy teenager that spends more time on Facebook than engaging in their education. I am a Community Director (a.k.a. Hall Director, or Dorm Mother if you’re really old school) and I work primarily with freshmen students. These “millennials” stress out their professors [...]

Speaking of Race . . .

Date: Mon, Mar 23, 2009 Wine Tasting

After reading the latest post I thought this article would be good to post.  It’s from one of my favorite writers, Charles Bremner who writes from Paris for the Times of London.  He talks about how France, which makes it illegal for officials to ask about ethnicity, is running into problems as it struggles to [...]

The Sunday Gospel - At what age do we notice color?

Date: Mon, Mar 23, 2009 Wine Tasting

As a kid we looked at the person infront of us as a human being. When in our lifetimes we do being to notice culture, faith, race? And why does it begin to matter to some of us? Questions on race and cultural identity always tend to intrigue me. Everyone always has an opinion on these [...]

In Defense of AIG

Date: Thu, Mar 19, 2009 Wine Tasting

OK, so AIG gave their employees $165 million in bonuses, like they do every year. The difference, of course, is that now something like 80% of AIG (which stands for American International Group) is owned by the federal government. But, I will make the case that the federal government has no business telling AIG [...]

Bad Religion St. Patrick’s Day Show

Date: Thu, Mar 19, 2009 Wine Tasting

Last night I went to The Edge 103.9’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration at Tempe Beach Park. It was a pretty good time, the beer was flowing and the crowd was a great sea of green. This is, of course, their annual celebration for this holiday, though it was a bit different this year. It was [...]

Pedestrians: more dangerous than they appear

Date: Wed, Mar 18, 2009 Wine Tasting

My first outdoor run in Beantown. Mileage: 5.5 (no watch because i did not leave the house thinking i would be running outside today) I did a fantastic route. I ran from the Tower to Kenmore, then up Beacon to Washington, swung past my apartment and down Com Ave back to school. Slightly depressing to run past [...]

Top 10 Albums Men Should NOT Own

Date: Tue, Mar 17, 2009 Wine Tasting

I found this article pretty interesting. It’s the Top 10 Albums men should not own if they ever want to get laid again. I just found it terribly amusing that Mary Louise Parker, star of the show Weeds, was doling out advice on the subject of music. The Ten Types of Music No Man Should Own Actress [...]

Back to the Grind

Date: Mon, Mar 16, 2009 Wine Tasting

so after a short spring break trip to Arizona, and the lovely running weather, I am back in Boston, which means I am back on the treadmill. Times for today: 5k: 24:03 (woo! beating my old time by about 51 s) 4 miles: 32:12 (kind of slowed down, I think I could have shaved some time off of [...]

The Sunday Gospel: Evil…Why?

Date: Sun, Mar 15, 2009 Wine Tasting

Since this blog is pretty open to talking about wherever, I want to bring in something that Zac brought up earlier. He mentioned, at the beginnings of Lived Reality, the website SoulPancake.com. On there, there is a Question Collective in which users can post a picture with a question attached. I think that a lot [...]

It’s Pi Day!

Date: Sat, Mar 14, 2009 Wine Tasting

On this beautiful Pi Day afternoon I realized that there are only six years until 3/14/15, which will be the most epic Pi Day of my lifetime.  But then I realized (with extreme jealousy) that March 14, 1592 was the absolute best Pi Days EVER. And I missed it. But that is okay, if you are [...]
