I’m rich beyond measure, because I get up everyday and get to do what I love. And somehow I don’t starve in the process. Between my books, blogs, and speaking gigs, I cobble together lunch money and then some.
In recent years after several life milestones rudely bitch-slapped me in the face, the Martini and I have enjoyed each other’s company more now that we ever did back in my 20’s when vodka tasted (to me) like Listerine gone bad. And gin was something you used to clean the bathtub. Is there anyone out there who really knows how to make a fabulous Martini?
As I’ve mentioned in previous blog posts, in the past I’ve been commissioned by a couple of matchmaking websites to write about the hilarity that ensues in the world of online dating. I wrote a few funny articles on the subject (from an outsider’s perspective), but when it came down to actually signing up and […]
Last Monday night I had the wonderful opportunity to give the keynote address at the Park City Woman’s Athenaeum Club Mother-Daughter Tea honoring the 2013 graduation of Park City High‘s young women seniors. Usually the speaker is an alumnus or alumni mom (neither of which I am), so I was surprised (yet honored) when I […]
Being divorced for almost a year now, I’ve been asked by more than one online dating website to try out their services for free and then document the resulting zany adventures on my blog. I’ve yet to take advantage of these anomalous, yet generous, offers. Not because I have an ethical standard that prohibits me […]
We’ve all seen the infomercials for the Shake Weight. And if you haven’t, surely you’ve laughed at them when they show up in film clips on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno or The Daily Show With Jon Stewart. But if you’ve been living in a sewer for the past couple of years and don’t […]
Have you had the big talk with your kids yet? And no, I’m not talking about getting them to explain to you how the PS-3 you already own can be used in place of an expensive DVR-blueray player. (Although if you haven’t had that discussion yet, you should. It can save you hundreds of dollars.) […]
Recently I went to a sex toys party. Actually, this wasn’t my first rodeo in this arena so I thought I knew what to expect. Years ago I had a good friend who was a sex toys rep. She booked Tupperware-like parties in women’s homes and gave compelling speeches to frustrated suburban housewives on the […]
I get some pretty quirky stuff in my inbox on a daily basis (now, there’s a sentence that would’ve needed some explaining a mere 20 years ago), but today’s post from Café Mom is on course to set a record. It read, “When Her Husband Dies, She Plans to Turn Him into Jewelry.” Apparently, she […]
Cynical. The word itself sounds so…clinical. Like it’s a quantifiable form of behavior, even though there’s no specific unit of measurement for it. You can’t say, for example, “Wow, that person is so cynically overweight, her cynicism must be all the way up to 300 lbs. She needs to cut back on Fox News or […]
