Ding Dong This Bitch Ain't Dead

Nope, I’m not dead; but thanks so much for the concern! Some of the messages I’ve recently received have been nothing short of unpolished: “Is the blog dead?” “No blog for two weeks…Nirvana.” “You ever comin’ back?” “I miss you…. Not!” “When’s the next blog?”  “Haven’t heard from you in a while…Have you lost your … Continued

The Eleventh Year: In Like A Lion And Out Like A Lamb

Some say March is the month that comes IN LIKE A LION, OUT LIKE A LAMB.  I’m taking that expression and applying it one step further.  I’m applying it to the eleventh year; the eleventh year of marriage that is. For someone who doesn’t know shit from Shinola, I actually think it’s a pretty good analogy. … Continued

My Blog. Therefore, My Rules.

JUST TO LET YOU KNOW… If you hadn’t already figured it out, I’m the only one in charge of this blog.  I’m the one in charge because it’s my blog, which means we play by my rules.   As far as the rules go, it’s simple.  The rules are that I’m the one who decides … Continued

OSCARS 2015 Highlights & Lowlights

Last night I barely made it through all three and a half hours (plus the Red Carpet Pre-Show) of the 2015 Academy Awards. To say I was slightly underwhelmed would be an understatement but I had already committed to live tweeting my thoughts on who’s wearing what, who’s winning, who’s losing and of course, who’s … Continued

FIFTY SHADES OF I HATE TO SAY I TOLD YOU SO…

I thought today would be an appropriate time to repost the blog I wrote back in July when the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer was first released. Nobody likes to hear, “I TOLD YOU SO” however since the movie hits theaters today I want to make it clear that I stand by my original opinions … Continued

OXYMORONS

JUST TO LET YOU KNOW… I love literary devices.  You know what I’m talking about, right?  Metaphors, similes, hyperboles, alliteration.  That stuff.  I mean, how can I not?  I’m trying to be a legit writer, so if I didn’t love all that wordy shit it would be weird.  Wouldn’t it? It would be weird.  Wouldn’t … Continued

Farewell Braverman Family Farewell

Thursday night I’m gonna say goodbye once and for all to the Bravemans.  I know it seems silly but I’m choked up just reading back that sentence.  Saying goodbye.  Once and for all.  The Bravermans.  Gulp.  It’ll be a miracle if my computer doesn’t short out by the time this blog entry is completed due … Continued

THE HIGH OF OUR LOWS

Another year down the drain.  Jeez, that was fast.  They say, “time flies when you’re having fun.”  I say, time only stands still when you’re on line at Bed Bath & Beyond or the United States Post Office.  If you fear life is passing by at lightning speed, just take a trip to either of … Continued

Thanks For Nothing!

 Hi.  It’s me. Okay, be honest. When you got my email or saw my Facebook status or Instagram pic or Twitter tweet about ANOTHER new blog post weren’t you like: “Really?  Again?  You just posted yesterday.  Now what do you want?” You thought that, right?  Seriously, it’s fine if you did.  Even I thought that, and … Continued
