No Mo Snow

My poor, beloved NYC is suffocating under a mountain of snow. It seems like every two days there is a huge, major storm, and I can’t help but recall that scene from The Day After Tomorrow where the Statue of

Reality Check

What really sucks about death is that it shows us how much we take for granted. My own dear father recently lamented that he’d always imagined growing old surrounded by the ones he loved, when a scare showed him that

Technical Difficulties

Ever have one of those days? I swear it all started when I tried to update my iPhone 4 from iOS 5, which I have been happily using FOR YEARS, to iOS 7 so I can use the updated version

Baggage Claim

As I get older I talk less and less. ….about my baggage. There is some baggage that’s easy to claim.  The nice stuff.  The baggage where we triumph, the baggage where we learn to become the hero.  That nice, rolling

Love Is Like Bubble Gum

I.  Love is Like Bubble Gum Love is like Bubble Gum. At first, it’s really hard. Then it’s SO SWEET. For like, a minute. And then it starts to break apart. But you keep chewing it because you don’t want

Teething Again!

Remember about six months ago, when my wisdom tooth was acting up and I endured severe mouth pain so bad I hated to even talk?  It’s back again.  I’m teething in full force, and that’s my excuse for not being

Currently…in January 2014

FEELING:  Really down.  I just got dumped two days ago, and it hit me really hard.  I don’t know if it’s the season, or if I’m really in a rut, but nothing about what I’m doing right now feels right.

What We Learned This Christmas

Last year, I never got to see my family for Christmas.  And I was miserable. This time around, it had been six months since I had seen any member of my family.   Oh, the old story:  working too hard,

Atheist Christmas Carols!

Alternet has clearly read my mind this year:  they’ve produced a fairly good list of Atheist-friendly Christmas songs!  Songs that do not mention Jesus, God, Saints, Angels, Miracles, or Virgin Births…because while Atheists may not like those things, we do

Nuts in the Fruit Department

This is the reason why I’ll never again shop at the Key Foods on 146th Street. I just went in for some apples, oranges, tuna and cottage cheese.  I picked up a basket and headed to the apple section when

Sick Thoughts

Everyone tells me, “You push yourself too hard,” as if that’s supposed to be negative!  In my opinion, I should push harder.  I’m proud of pushing hard!  Pushing hard is a badge of honor! Until it catches up to you.

I’m A Little Teapot, Apparently

I’ve sworn up and down that I’m a coffee person.  Don’t worry!  I still am!  But I have a confession:  I’ve been cheating on coffee…with tea. I know!  I want to kick my own ass.  Trust.  But I’ve been trying

Day of the Doctor

So, did all my Whovians watch “Day I the Doctor” yet?  Because I literally devoted an entire day to the viewing of the 50th Anniversary special and sundry other associated programs. First, the pilot, of course:  which originally aired fifty

Blogtember #19: Gripe

I’ve written about my Facebook pet peeves here and here.  But I’ve noticed a new trend has emerged that has gotten so out of hand that I’ve even gone so far as to delete the Facebook app from my phone.

Blogtember #15: Be Careful What You Wish For

“Life lately” is going incredibly well.  Almost too well, in fact… I asked my hair stylist at my last bang trim to do a cute, asymmetrical chop.  The result?  Much too short!  I’ve been growing out my unfortunate bang decision
