you are still wrong. Oh, so very wrong.
I haven’t been able to do a lot of writing here on the blog lately. It’s been a combination of having a very full schedule and not sleeping well. I am working on trying to fix the part about not sleeping well. The full schedule will start easing off a bit after October 10th. I will probably post more about that in the near future.
In the meantime, I wanted to say something about two stories in the news that are related to the title of my post. One is in regards to civil rights, the other is in regards to one of New England’s favorite athletes.

Wow. Even though I am not much of a football fan, I have to say that last night’s game was pretty dramatic.
Anyone who knows me well knows that when it comes to football, I am decidedly… meh. I just never got into the sport the way that so many other people (like Kelly) have. Baseball is another story. I love it. Even hockey and soccer are sports I care WAY more about than football. But still, I look forward to whenever the Pats go the Superbowl, because that inevitably means people I know will be throwing great parties with lots of beer, wings, and general awesomeness.
So this year the upcoming
wingstravaganza Superbowl party seems to be dominated by talk about this mess regarding the slight under-inflation of footballs. And frankly, I am a bit puzzled by the whole thing.
After a small break in January, we’re back at it, this time in time for Valentine’s Day. Geoff and I will be vending at the Somerville Local First Local is for Lovers Market at the Armory in Somerville on Sunday February 8th from 10:00am – 3:00pm. (For those of you scurrying to check your calendars, this is the Sunday after the Superbowl.)
We’re also going to be back showing with the ever fantastic Gravestone Girls, Erica from Esoterica and Smiley Baby Hats, Q’s Nuts, and the good folks at Next Step Living. This is, as always, a full on family event with Knucklebones there to entertain and enlighten the kids while the adults shop, listen to great music, and check out the hard cider vendor Far From the Tree Craft Hard Cider.
We really hope to see you there!
A lot of Patriots fans have been talking about the new video on Funny or Die by Pats quarterback Tom Brady. Basically, it is all about accents, and of course he doesn’t have one, much less a Boston one. He seems to be a good sport about the whole thing, and I always applaud anyone who doesn’t mind doing some self-parody. Anyway, for all you non-Boston people who haven’t seen it yet, here it is.
It’s no secret if you know me and Geoff that I’m the bigger football fan in this family. While we’re both Red Sox fans, I’ll generally sit and watch a football game on TV with more interest than I will a baseball game. I enjoy a baseball game live much more than on the TV while I will happily watch football either way. I am also far more likely to talk football smack with friends and coworkers than Geoff is. Unless of course you’re a Yankee fan, then all bets are off.
Lately, Kelly and I have been having a pretty rough time in general. We have managed so far to keep our chins up, mainly due to our love for each other and our little furry kids. But it has also been encouraging that we have gotten a lot of emotional (and sometimes material) support from friends and family, and lately that has also helped us to keep our heads above water financially. So since I feel like I have not said thank you to all of those people nearly enough, I will say so again here. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. I honestly don’t know what we would do without all of you.
