I would define a "Doris Day" as one of those precious, but easily forgotten days where all the scales tip in your favor. A great hair day where you chose the most flattering thing in your closet & every note you sing is on pitch. You can jump the highest. You can run t...

This will be a sort of time capsule post- strongly laced with hostility for the place I cringe to call “home.”


I moved to Los Angeles 10 years ago today. I did not want to come here. And when I got here, I didn't want to stay. Not much has changed.

Work-related opportun...

Stormy weather a-brewin' on the forecast ahead. Visitors be on your guard. The animals on this tour bite.


Anger. It's a struggle for me. It's something I don't have a handle on.

I'm a quiet angry person. I simmer. I steep. I come to a boil with a little hiss. My anger s...

I read yesterday that Lucille Ball felt personally responsible for keeping humor in people's lives. What a gal.

When I logged into Wix just now, I discovered that it (I'm giving this web development platform the ability to think for itself) has labeled my blog as "old."...

This is an observation on that mutinous, vexatious, egocentric illness that has the audacity to be non-life-threatening. It is known simply as a "cold." We all know how capricious & sinister these cureless little devil viruses are. They strike with the most subtle of w...

Dear friend,

I worry/think/wonder about you all the time. Most of all I miss you. I don't hold out hope for...

Read no further if you are quick to judge, criticize or dismiss. This was not written for you. 

You know that person in your life that just can’t seem to get their s*** together? That person who has so many financial problems, relationship problems, employment prob...

I have been feeling pretty positive lately. And by lately I mean for more than an hour or two every once and a while, for longer than a day here and there, for nearly a week at a time sometimes, and for more than once a month or every other month and for several months...

I knew virtually nothing about Anthony Bourdain until 2 days ago. I didn’t have the slightest clue what he was really about. I knew that he was a foodie and he had a reputation for eating literally anything and that he sort of looked or sounded like Elliott Gould or Le...

Themes for today... cuisine. color. history. inconvenience. reminiscence. movies. royalty.

1) Are potato chips sexy? I think they are... They must be, right? Can you name another food that is as universally irresistible (you probably can, but humor me)? I mean, pic...
