Life.....is a series of dogs.

I thought about how mothers feed their babies with tiny little spoons and forks so I wondered, what do Chinese mothers use? Toothpicks?

If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted?

Why is the man (or woman) who invests all your money called a broker?

When cheese gets it's picture taken, what does it say?

When someone asks you, A penny for your thoughts, and you put your two cents in, what happens to the other penny?

If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?

Why do croutons come in airtight packages? It's just stale bread to begin with.

"I am" is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that "I do" is the longest sentence?

Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

Frisbeetarianism is the belief that when you die, your soul goes up on the roof and gets stuck.

Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations. When you have to wait a year to sleep next to a tree, something is wrong.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

Before they invented drawing boards, what did they go back to?

Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.

I have as much authority as the Pope, I just don't have as many people who believe it.
May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.

Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?

If the #2 pencil is the most popular, why is it still #2?

I think it would be interesting if old people got anti-Alzheimer's disease where they slowly began to recover other people's lost memories.

Electricity is really just organized lightning.

Women like silent men, they think they're listening.

Men are from Earth, women are from Earth. Deal with it.

If all the world is a stage, where is the audience sitting?

Well, if crime fighters fight crime and fire fighters fight fire, what do freedom fighters fight? They never mention that part to us, do they?

Honesty may be the best policy, but it's important to remember that apparently, by elimination, dishonesty is the second-best policy.

I recently went to a new doctor and noticed he was located in something called the Professional Building. I felt better right away.

Why is the man (or woman) who invests all your money called a broker?

I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.

There's no present. There's only the immediate future and the recent past.

At a formal dinner party, the person nearest death should always be seated closest to the bathroom.

As a matter of principle, I never attend the first annual anything.

The very existence of flame-throwers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done.

Death is caused by swallowing small amounts of saliva over a long period of time.

Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately.

The only good thing ever to come out of religion was the music.

Religion convinced the world that there's an invisible man in the sky who watches everything you do. And there's 10 things he doesn't want you to do or else you'll go to a burning place with a lake of fire until the end of eternity. But he loves you! ...And he needs money! He's all powerful, but he can't handle money!

This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen.
Independent film by Miranda July who was rated #1 by Filmmaker Magazine in their "25 New Faces of Indie Film" in 2004

A thriller without much clichés. Also a smart film about the culture of violence.

Graham: It's the sense of touch. In any real city, you walk, you know? You brush past people, people bump into you. In L.A., nobody touches you. We're always behind this metal and glass. I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel something.

went there tonight after dinner. it seems king's has obviously better cocktail bar and fri/sat night live music than jillians. king's bartenders are very good looking guys.

zagat says king's has better decor than jillians, but i think jillians' big plasma tvs has no rival anywhere. bowling at king's is a little more hyper than luckystrike at jillians, though a little older on the other hand.

George: I'd say I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not. I excel at not giving a shit. Experience has taught me that interest begets expectation, and expectation beget disappointment, so the key to avoiding disappointment is to avoid interest. A equals B equals C Equals A, or whatever. I also don't have a lot of interest in being a good person or a bad person. From what I can tell, either way, you're screwed. Bad people are punished by society's laws, and good people are punished by Murphy's Law. So you see my dilemma.

George: Who decides what we look like?
Mason: I don't know. Maybe this is what our inner child looks like when it grows up.
George: If that were the case, it looks like my inner child's road to adulthood was paved with crack cocaine, ten-dollar blowjobs, and maybe even a trick baby or two.

Went there two years ago for girl friend's birthday. It's no doubt the best restaurant in metro boston area, which unsurprisingly comes with a huge price tag.

Zagat review_ food 28/30 decor 27/30 service 27/30 cost $84 pp

By most accounts “the only world-class restaurant in Boston”, this “favorite” offers a “once-in-a-blue- moon experience” of “unparalleled gustatory extravagance”; an “enchanting” Back Bay townhouse sets the stage for a “succulent” New England
went there tonight for dinner. excellent place. spanish restaurant with comprehensive wine list. excellent bread and spanish cheese.

the lamb entry was comparable to the one served by 'the garlic' at killington, awesome dish. they also cook quail, rabbit, and other weird stuff.

The chef of this popular Cambodian-French fusion house, Langtaine de Monteiro, learned to manage a Cambodian kitchen as the wife of a diplomat and for a time ran a restaurant in Provence. The common element is garlic, from appetizers such as moules (mussels) swimming in butter infused with the stuff to superb Cambodian spring rolls, delicate salads, and a red curry of surpassingly fresh flavor. The Brookline area has another branch.

just came back from this movie. In case you wonder why the actress looks familiar, you should know she was the girl with Bruce Willis in the movie 'the whole nine yards'. She has pretty green eyes.

Ashton Kutcher acted reasonably well. The guy who directed the film must suck.

I guess they tried too hard to follow 'when hally met sally' and didnt quite make it.

-Wished it was better., 24 April 2005

I had anticipated this movie as my generation's "When Harry Met Sally", as that is one of my favorite movies and "A Lot Like Love" seemed to be it! I do like Ashton Kutcher, especially when paired with above average actresses like Amanda Peet.

The movie wasn't horrible, it was cute, had a few heartfelt themes, wonderful chemistry, good performances and a story that should have promised two characters that you would never forget. Unfortunately, the plot didn't hold up, and in all, if the script had been better, all of these things could have been accomplished. It doesn't let you become as close to the characters as you'd like, no depth is depicted, and all though a few cutting edge dialogue scenes, it fails big time in the sharp conversational aspects that "When Harry Met Sally" thrives on.

It was disappointing, underwhelming, but if you feel you can relate to the characters, see it for a relaxing, think-free trip to the theater, as I did enjoy Ashton, perhaps out of my own bias, but he did what he could with the material and will make you fall in love with him.
'Out of the Blue' at Davis Square, went there two weeks ago.

I have been trying to remember the name of this restaurant for quite some time, until my credit card statement reminded me today.

It's a friendly upscale seafood restaurant. Chefs are good. Somewhat Italian like. Comparing to Legal Seafood (not that I like it or dislike it or anything), it's house styled, friendly, and a little cheaper. Less wine/dessert listing than Legal Seafood though.

Free bread. Free warm bread. (think about the cold dusty bread at bertucci or uno, most of the time)

It's a nice place to go with a date and enjoy the night. Not necessarily a good place to be gluttonous and stuff him/herself.

Did I mention free bread?

Their menu is available online. Directions as well. http://www.outofthebluerestaurant.com/

Zagat Survey; 2002 Boston Resaurants
"If it were in the North End, it'd be a real hit," predict partisans of this "great new secret in Davis Square," though it sort of looks like a sandwich shop with nice murals," the Italian kitchen turns out "good" pastas and the "freshest fish imaginable" and the staff "tries hard" leading fans to urge "go and try it yourself" - "it's addictive."

Zagat Survey
While it “may not look fabulous”, this “casual” “little” Italian seafood house in Davis Square “does it right”, turning out “large portions” of “surprisingly” “delicious”, “fresh” fish dishes and “terrific” pastas in an aquatic-themed room decorated with “entertaining murals”; the service is “extremely friendly” and the prices “very fair”, leading denizens to conclude “understated but overachieving.”

Boston Phoenix January 18-25,2001
Out of the Blue came out of nowhere, but it seems destined to go places. It's a small, happenin' spot (just like its predecessor, the late-night Dolly's) whose focus is on fresh fish dishes accompanied by pasta or salad.

Just came back from loews seeing 'The Interpreter' by nicole kidman and sean penn. The acting is not bad but the storyline is too lame.

There's another film in theatres right now, 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy'. I didn't see it myself despite the good reviews I read.

FYI, John Malkovich is in the cast list.
went there two days ago. great place for live music lovers. highly recommended.
