As the self-proclaimed vainest person in America, I may ironically deserve this sentence - a lifetime of unannounced hives and facial inflation akin to bad plastic surgery (think Goldie Hawn's lips in First Wives Club and Harry Potter's face in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hal… Read full post »
Reader's Note: This is an absolutely TRUE story.
Today is September 11th and it has been a week filled with emotion. All week long WNYC has been running different stories of experiences; History Channel and BIO have as well as the regular news networks. Even I, a marked person of… Read full post »
It's the weekend of Hurricane Irene and I was trying to create some sort of piece around riding out a hurricane with two children in the same week we experienced an earthquake and same month in which I have had a serious shitstorm of bad PR at work to deal with… Read full post »
I am an apron. And a washcloth, a towel, a kleenex and more. If you can wipe your hands, feet or face on it - I am that thing.
At least to my youngest child. He had a cold around Christmas at which point someone taught him to… Read full post »
Warning: This article has the potential to totally offend some of you. Deal with it.
Do you remember being pregnant and sprinkled in amongst all the other annoying questions was the ever-nagging and judgy query "Are you going to breast feed?".
Well are you? Because in respo… Read full post »
Okay, so I am not quite a bomshell, but I am very beautiful and smart, and clearly lacking humblenesss and posessing an over abundance of vanity. Consider this confession #1.
Now to the issue at hand: Have you sat down lately to take a look at yourself? Not in the… Read full post »
I love Emily Post, don't you?
I know you probably don't. But I do, and I think it is because I am a) naturally insensitive and impolite and b) love anything elegant and pretty. I am also the proud owner of the 16th revised edition and use it often. Yes, often.… Read full post »
No, not the 1980s mini-series featuring a young (and thin) Kirstie Alley and a very young and handsome Patrick Swayze which was based on the John Jakes' novels. This is about a homegrown Florida girl who picks up with her family and moves to Long Island. In my three years… Read full post »
1. Pleated pants, shorts and skirts WILL most always make you look fat
2. Don't apologize for being who you are , unless you are a jackass, then you may want to reconsider.
3. You know that song "Don't Cry Out Loud"? It makes a good… Read full post »
You know that irritated, exhausted, "you have got to be kidding me" feeling you get when you are witness to the horrors of a child tantruming in public? Especially when you are on line at Target or about to board a plane? "Why don't the parents just leave?" "… Read full post »
Do you remember being a kid and having a sort of inane obsession about something? My brother's was his custom made batman costume, mine were twofold - hats and being a nun.
I had forgotten about the nun focus until hearing a story on NPR on my way… Read full post »
I am super judgy of other moms; well, I was super judgy, now I am moderately so. And not so judgy of parenting skills and style as much as personal style. You see, it bothered me when moms didn't have any. How could you let yourself go for God's sake,… Read full post »
A few months ago I made the comment on Facebook that it was no shocker Corey Haim had died of a drug overdose; this illicited the response from my husband that I was insensitive. He's right, I am. And in follow up to that lack of sensitivity I wrote at… Read full post »
