Construction craziness - Will it ever end?

My commute is like a soap opera. I am on the edge of my (car) seat every morning.

Will the left lane on VFW Parkway be closed this morning? Or will it be the right lane? Will the stupid retail construction and its overflow of paving mess be spewing onto Route 1 this morning? Will it be finished in time for football season? Or will the Patriots be forced to play in a stadium surrounded by piles of dirt and gravel? Do I take I-95 and risk getting caught in a tangle of traffic at the Split?

Herrell's hidden room

Herrell's Ice Cream shop in Harvard Square is located in what used ot be a bank. They turned the old vault into a dining room of sorts.

My voicemail from Mayor Menino


Thanks to Roommate2.0 for helping me get this embedded.

Workplace waterfall

The view out my office window this afternoon. This always happens when it rains.

It's like working under a waterfall.

Modern medicine

Holy shit, modern medicine is amazing! A little over a week ago, doctors at BIDMC fixed my heart... without cracking open my chest. The only side effect- some serious bruising on my thighs where they slid some wires into the two branches of the femoral vein.

Almost a year later, but I just found this blog post that does a decent job of describing what it's like to have an EP Study. (Wish I'd gotten anesthesia. And the Valium. I got a sleeping pill after puking all day in my post-op room when they decided that I needed to be observed overnight.) I have to say that I did not think that the Cath Lab at BIDMC looked dingy at all. My only complaint - it was very cold.
