The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

“When out from the bathroom there arose such a clatter, she sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.”

“Oh ffffffffffffuuuuuuuuddddddddddge!”

Only I didn't say “Fudge.” I said the word, the big one, the queen mother of dirty words, the “F-dash-dash-dash” word. Fortunately, the loud crashing sound masked what I said. It also brought Bunny to the bathroom door.

“Are you alright?” she asked from the other side.

“Yes,” I said, hobbling to the door, trying to keep my balance as I was sopping wet with a plastic garbage bad covering my right foot. “although I did do a number on the garbage pail.” I then opened the door to let Bunny see the resulting carnage.

[Picture of the bathroom at Chez Boca with a shattered plastic garbage pail littering the floor] There was nothing we could do.  It was an ex-garbage pail, pining for the fjords!

“What happened?”

“I was trying to get out of the tub and slipped,” I said, pulling the garbage bag off my foot.

“Oh! You're bleeding!”

“Tis a flesh wound,” I said. “I've had worse.”

“Sean, you're lucky you didn't smash your head open. Those bathtubs have been known to kill people.”

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
