Happy Tuesday everyone. Figured I’d try out a few weekly recs of things to do this week, rather than making you feel bad about all the fun I had with my week that you didn’t have. I’m nothing if not a giving person afterall.

Here we go then.

1. The Hangover: So good. Just see it.

2. Red Sox-Yankees: So yeah, you may not be able to get tickets, or afford them, but you can still watch the game on TV. I’m sure by now you can all appreciate the sentimental bias this blog has towards one of these teams, but you should still tune in if you like baseball, because regardless of the fact that they’re two of the best teams in baseball, there’s also just the history and rivalry and all that jazz. Besides, we’ve beat them five times in a row now. Would you want to miss 6, 7, or 8?

3. Burn Notice: I’m pretty sure I’d love this show anyway, even if it didn’t have Bruce Campbell, but it does, and that makes it all the better. Just a smart, fun, well written show, and they’re only one episode in to the season. Just go online to the USA channel website and watch it right there, then start watching it. If you haven’t seen an episode, don’t worry. It isn’t that hard to get in to it, and if you really need to know more, just look it up on Wikipedia.

4. The Boston College Flynn Recreation Complex Pool: I work there now, so I feel like I need to tell you to go there. Unless no one else is in the pool. Because if no one else is in the pool, the lifeguards don’t need to work, they get to go on break. If you get in the pool you ruin that. And then I ruin you.

Yelling at Teenagers: My teenage years may not be all that far behind me, but that doesn’t mean telling a bunch of obnoxious 15 year olds that no, you can’t flip sideways off the diving board to try and land right next to someone, isn’t fun. So go out there, and give those young punks a piece of your mind.

More fun to come later this week, hopefully.

P.S. – Justice prevailed in my own personal Cold War. I’ll tell you about it if you ask me in person.

I’m not really sure why this stopped, I always thought it was cool. Except for all those times that I forgot to do it…

Whatever, here we go.

1. Me Being Employed: So I just found out earlier today that I was hired to work at the campus gym all summer as a lifeguard. Totally stoked, because now I can make like extra money, and have a reason to stay in Boston all summer, and things like that. Now I just need to start growing a moustache and find the shortest red swimsuit possible…

2. Summer Movie Season: I love summer movies. Sure they’re mostly just action movies and oddball comedies, but whatever. They’re fun. And I like fun. Already started strong with Wolverine (enjoyable) and Star Trek (fantastic), and hopefully only going up.

3. Secret Warriors: This is starting to become one of my favorite comics to read, especially where Marvel is concerned. I’ll admit to being weirded out and skeptical of the whole “Hydra running SHIELD” thing, but I’m really buying what they’re selling, and looking forward to this whole Howling Commandos/Hydra throwdown. Nick Fury is just cool.

4. Summer: Summer is my favorite season, easily. Looking past the whole no school thing, it is just nice to have warm, enjoyable days again, when I can go around in shorts and Tevas and not wish I’d grabbed a coat before I left. I’m a very tropical climate sort of person, and so warm weather gets the thumbs up.

5. Graduation: I’d like to take this moment to make a shout out to all the friends of NobodyReadsYourBlog (specifically my friends) who just finished up college and will be graduating soon. You guys all rock, and while I won’t be calling you out by name, just assume that if you’re graduating, I’m talking about you.

That’s all for now,


PS – Nothing really to say here, just doing because I feel like it became my thing. And if it isn’t, than it is now.

Again, only one (belated) rec this week:

Justin and Caitie running the marathon!


Take a break from drinking and smoking to cheer on these two as they run 26.2 miles through Boston.  Best of luck to them and all the others running the marathon.  You have to check w/ her, but i think you can still donate to their cause, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Well, figured it was time to get on this train.

1. Jason Varitek- While it certainly hasn’t been an ideal start to the season, it has been nice to see Tek showing signs of hopefully a rebound year offensively.

2. Fast and Furious- I really liked it, and you should too.

3. Vacation- Seriously, why aren’t you taking one right now? Oh right, because you have to finish this. Well, that’s okay then. But take one when you’re done.

4. Green Lantern- First Flight trailer? Check. Kick-Off to Agent Orange? Check. Appear prominently in Flash:Rebirth? Check. Overall, good times for Lantern fans.

5. Trend Setting- Have a cool idea for some sort of social thing, such as a word, phrase, or hand gesture? Start using it, and encourage others to as well, especially if they seem to like it. Right now the ones I have going are:
1. The F*** It hand gesture- I’m not taking complete credit for this one, because it is pretty basic, and it probably was around before, but whatever, I do it a lot more now, and other people seem to be too. Pretty much, just whenever you’re in a situation where you just want to say “F*** it,” whether because you’re over it, just don’t want to deal with it, or whatever, simply make the basic self-pleasuring hand gesture (the male self-pleasuring hand gesture, no offense ladies), move it back and forth as if pleasuring oneself, and then use your hand to imitate a small eruption. I think you get the point. Point is, use. It’s fun. Just, you know, be careful who sees it/don’t actually pleasure yourself. That would be weird.
2. People see a room full of guys, and what do they say? Sausage Fest. But what about a room full of girls? Why don’t they have a semi-derogatory food associated term? Now they do. Clam Bake. Use it.
3. Magic Man- This is pretty specific to my life and people I know actually, but it’s catching on. Not going in to details on who/what it is.

So yeah, weekly recs. More difficult than I thought.

P.S. Using euphemisms to make things more kid safe is fun. At least my posts are safe for work. Not sure about Caitie’s…
