Boston Globe columnist Scott Lehigh has a good column today that exposes the double standard with politicians and clergy.

late night on the T

Posted by thoughtful1 on April 20, 2008

I’m sitting on the last T car for my line. And, since we are at a major station we’re sitting here waiting for another line to come in so people can make the transfer.

One of the passengers is a talkative gay man. And he’s chatting with the straight folks. Thank goodness there are some extraverts, otherwise we’d just be sitting here in total silences. Especially since, according to the gay guy who knows the intricacies of the MBTA, we could sit here for another 20 minutes.

It’s interesting to see the late night crowd. A few 30 something men are wearing suits – must have been on a fancy date or at an upscale club… Not that I’m an expert on late night crowds. The chatty guy got off from work, and everyone else must have been doing more mundane things… Or not as fancy.  Oh, and there are a handful of Sox fans.  Must have hung out in a bar after the game.

Looks like the other line has come in. We should be moving soon.

Ooo… I can blog via BlackBerry

Posted by thoughtful1 on April 17, 2008

Okay… WordPress has a mobile site, which means I can blog with my new toy :). However, more frequent postings with the BlackBerry would mean lots more typos and weird ass words as the smarttype picks the wrong word.

But it would give me something to do while waiting for the T. And I could do some “Woman on the street” posts, where I talk about odd stuff that happens as I’m out and about.

Where’d the time go?

Posted by thoughtful1 on April 17, 2008

Oops… I knew I had been lazy with the blog, but I didn’t realize this much time had passed. Doh!

I think I went inter hibernation for the winter. I just felt tired, and a bit depressed. I think I am going through some stuff right – working through some issues from my adoption and my parents’ divorce. Good times! 😛

But, spring is finally here. I wore a skirt today since it was warmer. I paid for it at the end of the day when it got colder… But I don’t care. The sun was out! It was above 50! Happiness!

The ironic thing is that I’ve been having “deep thoughts” these past few months. I’ve come up with things I could write about here. I just never got around to it…. I’m ashamed to admit that part of the problem is I’ve been messing around on Facebook too much. But I think it’s more a symptom of me working through some things… Or avoiding working through things 😉 I will, however, try to be a better blogger.

Oh, and I am a new owner of a Blackberry Pearl 8120. It is my new, shiny toy. I like it very much 😀
