The media portrays millennials as lazy little losers who won’t get off the couch long enough to apply for a job. But not all millennials are disaffected, undisciplined people. Take my little Janie, for example. Janie wants a job - she just hasn’t found one yet. But we think she is… Read full post »

Dear Debbie

Dear Debbie,

Dad and I (and the admin that I suspect is Dad’s new mistress) are so happy to hear that your summer “job” at the Big Game Reserve in South Africa is going well (especially since Dad and I paid thousands of dollars for you to “work” there).  We are… Read full post »

Now that Debbie is off to rehab, I can focus on daughter #2, who has been working very hard to secure summer employment.  I am so proud of Angel’s work ethic, despite the fact that she has yet to contact a prospective employer.

It’s not Angel’s fault, however.  How can… Read full post »

Martini Mommy Brags

Where I live, graduation is the fifth season of the year.  Like the other seasons, it feels like it’s never going to end, as I look around at women with Botoxed faces trying to smile while listening to conversations about who is off to Harvard, Yale or MIT in the fall. … Read full post »

When Pigs Bowl


Whole Foods is proud of their 5-Step Animal Welfare Rating Standards because, in their words, “it’s often easy to forget that the burger, steak or drumstick on your plate was once an animal.”  Odd that they want to remind us that it was once an animal before they killed… Read full post »

Yahoo Marissogynist Mayer


I am not a whiny woe-is-me woman but I have been mistreated by bosses of both sexes.  There isn’t a woman out there who hasn’t, is my guess. 

Despite all of the pathetic bosses of either sex that I have endured over the years, I would rather… Read full post »

Cheating is the New Black


Stories about cheaters abound in the media these days and we love reading about them.  We also love the happy endings where the cheaters get hauled off to jail or stripped of their titles and/or their money.  Yet we get a vicarious thrill when we read about all of… Read full post »

Careening Toward the Twinkie Cliff

Careening Toward the Twinkie Cliff

The fiscal cliff that the country is hurdling headlong in the direction of is a mere distraction from the more imminent Twinkie cliff.  The greedy bakers at the Hostess Brands, Inc. Evil Empire may be hung by their own petards by insisting on being paid… Read full post »

The Horribly Hormonal Hostess

As I rammed the melon-baller into the cantaloupe repeatedly, I thought about the dinner party that I would be hosting in a few hours.  Inviting the new boss and his pregnant girlfriend over seemed like a smart career move as long as I successfully avoided such taboo topics as “infidelity w… Read full post »

Women's Liberation Rope-a-Dope

History is replete with examples of large groups of people who suffered under the crushing weight of their unrealistic beliefs.  The Native Americans, for example, were a mere footnote in the Industrial Revolution because of their erroneous belief that the wheel was a luxury that no one really n/… Read full post »

50 Shades of F-You

I am no saint but I’m sure that even Jesus wanted to tell somebody off at some point in his life. My upbringing makes it nearly impossible for me to actually say the f-word to anyone, but my upbringing was also just flawed enough to allow me to think the most… Read full post »

Crossing the Rubicon

Most people are good at something and some people are good at more than one thing.  I fall into the latter category because I am extremely adept at using power tools as well as insulting large groups of people with my writing.  Or so I’ve been told.

Back in the day… Read full post »
