    Three Cheers for the Agitator! 

    I come from an NBA family.  Or rather, I come from a city of NBA-fame that demands fanfare from all it’s inhabitants.  So much so that as a young girl I used to hoist 6’ foot cardboard cutouts of Horace Grant, Scotty Pippen and BJ Armstrong on the balcony of my aunt’s suburban condo with my sister in tow holding signs that read, “Honk for a 3-Peat!”.  We did this gleefully for every playoff game.

    But my sports fanaticism ended there.  Save watching some golf or tennis when I want to nap I don’t really dedicate my time to any one sport or team.  And I especially don’t make any attempt to watch football.

    What’s so wrong with football you ask?  Well, nothing and everything.  Football has always seemed evasive to me.  Because I never feigned to understand the rules, the rules appear foolishly complex when I try to make sense of them.  The basics I get, but it seems there’s always some reason to stop the game, yet never stop the clock.  It’s maddening!

    All told, however, people LOVE it.  My Northeast kinsmen especially so.  And considering my current city of residence’s team, the Boston Patriots, were Superbowl contenders, I thought I’d study up. (More …)

      Don’t let any of your football friends see this! It’s the New England Patriots. LOL.

    Take a Craft at It 

    In one way is my family split evenly: fiscal responsibility.  That’s to say, I’ve none.  My sister keeps company with me here, while my mother and brother are artful misers who really know how to save.  So it came as a great surprise when I landed a temporary job in campaign finance in the summer of 2008. 

    Somehow, since then, I haven’t been able to do anything other than fiscally plan.

    I’m a financial administrator at MIT.  My job asks that I maintain financial portfolios.  Before then I was maintaining the books at Loyola.  Earlier than that, for Betsy Markey for Congress.  So, following the great tide of life, I am keeping in theme with my upcoming nuptials.

    As Hiro and I have to assume most of the fiscal burden of a wedding we are trying to do so in the most creatively frugal ways possible!  Thankfully, we settled on partying in a barn.  Barn décor is minimal, at best, so we needn’t fret over silken linens and rental forks.  However to really keep in theme (and I love a good theme) I have decided to do almost everything by hand.

    It’s a wild adventure in DIY madness! (More …)
