I have a confession: I owe my first glimpse of the northern lights to my terrible smoking habit. Pacing around in blast-freezer conditions, I was puffing away on my after-dinner cigarette (my face and hands progressing from cold, through stinging, to completely numb) when I happened to glance to the skies. There it was. A faint beam of eerie green light snaked overhead, curling and intensifying, then slowly unfurling into a delicate, shimmering curtain. As I watched, a second swathe of rosy pink light began to materialise. I was mesmerised. Eventually I snapped out of my trance and burst into the restaurant to share the news. A stampede for the door ensued.
My first foray into online dating was a boy I call Nemo. We met on Plenty of Fish, get it? Anyway… I change the names to protect the nice people who deign to go out with me.
Nemo had a great opening message to me. Most people were saying “hi” or “hello” or “what’s up” or my personal favorite “Hello my Queen”. Nemo actually spoke TO me. He said:
• A. You look familiar
• B. Why were you walking down that street in your pictures?
The picture he refers to is one of my profile pics of me walking down 5th St in Southie. Right in front of his childhood home.

Kennedy is a smarty pants. Every morning she shows off her knowledge of all things pop culture during “Can’t Beat Kennedy,” everyone’s favorite part of the “Karson and Kennedy” show on Mix 104.1.

Newly single, she’s dived into the world of online dating and has determined she is very bad at it, but knows it’s funny to watch. She loves a good adventure, fears nothing but tinfoil, and wants to try everything once. And the fun stuff twice. “And I’m serious about the tin foil,” she says.

Bubble baths are a good time for any age. You’ve got your bottle of bubbles, your scented ambience candles, your soothing bath salts, your cleansing shampoo, your soothing conditioner, your invigorating body wash, your gossip magazines… Actually, bubble baths are really just a pain to manage unless you grow atleast three more sets of hands and no water is involved.
