I'm a 36 year old librarian who loves to run, read, do yoga and hang out with my friends and family. I ran the 2008 & 2009 Boston Marathon for Team Eye & Ear to support the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. Go Team Eye & Ear!

You're BUSted

There's unwritten bus stop etiquette that the first person to arrive gets to stand pretty much in front of where the bus' front door will open. People who arrive after this should line up or at least huddle slightly behind this person. 95% of bus passengers follow this rule. 3% of those who chose to ignore this are either those whom most people would give a sit up for anyway (and therefore deserve to board first) or those who claim to have seen Elvis hanging with Tupac last week (and therefore no one will argue with anyway.) The remaining 2% are those who plant themselves in front of those who have been waiting for the bus the longest. These also tend to be the same people who for some inexplicable reason refuse to climb the two stairs leading to the back of the bus to make room for others who are boarding. If there was a bus patrol (think hallway monitors for the bus) I'd gladly volunteer to write these DBs up.

Some People Shouldn't be Allowed to Own Pets

It's close to 90 degrees out and this ass has his/her dog baking in the heat with the windows roled up. Lexi and I circled the block and the car and the dog were still there. This poor dog's owner should have to sit in a sweltering car wearing a fur coat... Jerk.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Welcome to the Main Event! Are you ready to Arrrrchiiiiiive?

My 8 year old self who was a dedicated G.L.O.W. and WWF fan would have loved this job.  The WWE (f/k/a WWF) is currently seeking an Archivist.  The first qualification for this job is an "extensive past and present knowledge of WWE and related entities."  This seemingly large pool of qualified candidates is most likely greatly reduced by the second qualification: "thorough knowledge of records management and archival management principles and methodologies."

So they're looking for someone who remembers the Bushwackers (who licked my brother's shaved head at a WWF event at the Hartford Civic Center!), mourned Macho Man Randy Savage's recent death with one last, "Ohhhhhh yeahhhhh" but also someone who is a trained archivist. 

I hope they find the little girl or boy (now grown) who carefully photographed and catalogued their wrestling action figures and signed event programs!

My favorite: George the Animal Steele & his green tongue!
