Tell Me Something Good

  Ugh, Mercury Retrograde, AMIRITE???   I started going all New-Agey on you a couple of months ago, but to be honest, I’ve alllllways had a soft spot for horoscopes. Even fortune cookies. Oh, god, my mom is nodding her head reading this! I saved SO MANY cookie fortunes over the[…]

GOOD NEWS! Good News is BACK!

Last week, I rounded up (proper past-tense?) a buncha stuff that was inspiring to me, getting me through the loneliness and the winter doldrums. And then I was like, “Why not continue to do that?” You know, I was doing that every Friday since 2016, right? Too lazy to research[…]

The Safety Blanket

I’m On A Boat

ER is on Hulu, and I’ve Never Been Happier

  Let me tell you a little story about Teenage Meghan.   She was SOOOO OBSESSED with the television show ER, that she dressed up as one of the characters for Halloween in senior year. Every Friday lunch period, she would perform an elaborate one-woman recap of the previous night’s episode of ER — including musical[…]
