Looking for a wedding photographer online has turned out to be quite a taxing ordeal.
So many of their websites have sappy, psuedo-romantic music playing on their site with no way to turn it off. Websites with music on them (and no way to stop it) is a big pet peeve of mine. I’m usually already listening to music through my computer speakers.
I think I have set a new rule: if a wedding photographer’s website has music, I will automatically not use them!

I can’t believe I’ve abandoned my blog for over a month. Shame on me. In my defense, a lot has been going on…and I was procrastinating moderating the comments. Since the last time I logged in, I had over 3,000 spam comments. Ouch.
Anyway, the reason I am breaking my silence is to share with you the horrendous experience I had yesterday, thanks to the MBTA.
First off, all weekend the D line was closed from Resevoir to Riverside. Instead, there were shuttle buses.
My “Little Sister” and I were returning to Newton after seeing Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre at the Wang Center. We were on the shuttle bus, which was going down Route 9 in Chestnut Hill (near the mall). Suddenly, the car in front of us braked, and the bus was unable to slow down in a timely manner, so the driver pounded on the horn and swerved into the left lane. He simultaneously almost hit the guy in front of us, and an SUV in the left lane.
Somehow, he missed both. It must have been a matter of inches. Everyone on the bus gasped in unison. My Sister and I were towards the rear of the bus, and it was the type of bus that the back is slightly elevated by one step. We were near the step. If we weren’t holding on tightly to the poles, we would have likely went flying across the bus.
It was pretty terrifying. Especially from where we were standing, we could see everything clearly happen. We were really lucky we didn’t get into an accident. I’m surprised we didn’t, actually. It was VERY close. We were shaking from it for about an hour.
And just think, all summer long they’ll be bussing between Resevoir and Riverside. OH JOY!Filed under Blogs, MBTA, My Life | Comments (4)
