Really awesome. And founded by a BU student...


Every morning, my dad lets the dogs out. Even though I think it's a weird practice, he gives them a treat once they come back in. I was downstairs this morning belly-aching about the snow when he let my dog out, let him back in, and guided him to the pantry where the treats are (not that the dog needs guiding to treats - he knows where to go).

Then Dad exclaimed as he gave Oliver his treat, "Can you believe it!?  You take a crap and someone gives you a treat!" he placed one into Oliver's open mouth and added, somewhat disappointed, "I don't get treats."

I love how at about 1 minute, 47 seconds she asks, "One day I'm gonna whistle?"

Lyrics to Home :
Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my Ma & Pa
Not the way that I do love you

Holy roly, me, oh my, you’re the apple of my eye

Girl, I’ve never loved one like you

Man, oh man, you’re my best friend, I scream it to the nothingness

There ain’t nothin’ that I need

Well, hot & heavy, pumpkin pie, chocolate candy, Jesus Christ

There ain’t nothin’ please me more than you


Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you
La la la la, take me Home
Baby, I’m coming Home

I’ll follow you into the park, through the jungle, through the dark

Girl, I’ve never loved one like you

Moats & boats & waterfalls, alley ways & pay phone calls

I’ve been everywhere with you

That’s true

We laugh until we think we’ll die, barefoot on a summer night

Nothin’ new is sweeter than with you

And in the sticks we’re running free like it’s only you and me

Geez, you’re something to see.

"Just as fear is contagious, courage is contagious"

In India, all women must confront the cultural pressure to bear a son. The consequences of this preference is a disregard for the lives of women and girls. From birth until death they face a constant threat of violence. See the project at

Just Plain Depressing

It's essays like these that make me not really want to live a "normal" life.

Blessed Are They


I just received an email from a site I use to order prints from. It read
"Exciting news: A bright-orange Shutterfly package is on its way, with unbelievable memories inside."

I don't know about exciting, and unbelievable?  I took the pictures. They're believable.

Overheard in the Newsroom

I think this might be my new favorite website.
