This Is My Now: Pursuing The Power Within

Every year around this time, I start to panic.  I panic because according to the calendar I’m about six weeks shy of officially turning older.  Internally, I start to take inventory of what I’ve personally accomplished and what I haven’t.  I begin to assess if I was productive enough over the last twelve months or … Continued

Why Didn't I Think Of That?

I’d be a millionaire if I had a dollar for every time I said, “Why Didn’t I Think Of That?”  You know  what sucks though?  Coming up with an idea isn’t really the hard part.  Over the years I’ve had tonzzz of brainstorming sessions in my personal think tank where I’ve invented dozens of gadgets … Continued

"THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID"… 34 Years Ago!

Saturday night I went out for dinner with a bunch of old friends.  After two scotches, a glass of Prosecco and a Corona, I announced that having just had my second and final phone call of the summer with my sleep-away camp kid, and hearing him say, “Ma you can ask me one more question, … Continued

Move Over Bacon… There's Something MEANER

Nope, I’m not whipping up Sizzlean.  It’s more like SIZZLE-MEAN. For the better part of the last two days I’ve been home filling my dance card with the highly acclaimed American political drama series, House of Cards. Forget about six degrees of Kevin Bacon.  My head is spinning three hundred sixty degrees from the whiplash … Continued

HE SAID / SHE SAID: Ernest & Audrey

I’ve always been fascinated with the differences between a man and a woman. However, instead of banging my head against the wall attempting to figure out the male species, I try my best to be accepting of what I know I can’t change.  Men Are From Mars & Women Are From Venus.  Period.  The End. … Continued

Don't Let THE LEFTOVERS Go To Waste

I hate wasting, which is why I always go for the leftovers.  I typically find all the good leftovers in my fridge, but the other night I found The Leftovers on my television and boy oh boy did it satisfy my appetite! THE LEFTOVERS:  Things That Make You Go Hmmmm The Leftovers is a new … Continued

FIFTY SHADES OF CALM DOWN, IT'S JUST A TRAILER!

Seriously, it’s not that big of a deal.  Trust me,  it’s no more than a tease.  Calm down people, it’s just a trailer. Yes, the trilogy was a huge phenomena.  In fact, it was the most exciting “3-Peat” to hit suburbia in years.  And yes, Fifty Shades of Grey, Darker and Freed made housewives everywhere equally … Continued

The Mile High Club

The Mile High Club is not what it used to be.  Not. At. All.   When there’s no other choice but to escort your hyper-active, six-year old, lunatic son to the lavatory about a dozen times during a two hour flight, it sure does gives new meaning to being a member of The Mile High … Continued

What Luck! Everything At DOLLAR TREE Really Is Only A Buck!

I can not believe there’s no false advertising when it comes to those dollar stores.  Seriously, I’m SHOCKED.  Everything’s $1.00. This weekend is Visiting Day, so yesterday I went to Dollar Tree to load up on crap for my kid.  I’m still broke from paying the camp tuition, so I skipped Target because as we … Continued
