Last night I made the mistake of watching a show on Fox titled “More To Love.” It’s a dating show involving plus sized women and a plus sized man named Luke as they hope to find love in front of the television cameras.
I was pleased to see… Read full post »
It’s been ten years since the plane JFK Jr. piloted hit the water. It still seems like a tragically stupid ending for a guy with so much potential.
I was reasonably involved in democratic politics for quite a few years. As a result, I had several, minor… Read full post »
I stood in Penn Station, sweltering, waiting for the train to take me back home to the ‘burbs. I was tired and a very tiny bit annoyed, as I had missed the 9:46 train by two minutes, requiring killing time until the next train at 10:16.

My dad is not normal. Really. Despite that fact, mail used to arrive at the house address to Normal. This invariably produced peals of laughter from my sister and me, as we competed to see who could grab it and get it to our dad first. He would chuckle, take the… Read full post »
I am a feminist. I’m damn proud of that fact, and I say it loud and clear. I have is no hesitation or regrets applying that description to myself.
Think about it for a minute. What is a feminist? Someone who supports the rights of women. Nothing/… Read full post »
I’ve been looking forward to today for a week. Today, lunch with my college suitemate, Sue. It’s been well over twenty years since we last saw each other, and I had all kinds of excitement about reconnecting with someone who knew me when.
We were thrown together freshman… Read full post »
I’ve decided that I deserve a reality show. Since there seem to be dozens of shows devoted to large families and semi-celebrity families, it’s seems fitting that the average person be assigned a camera crew and network time.
I’m reasonably average. I’m a 4/… Read full post »
You never know what you may find hiding out in the open on a sunny spring day. Just beneath that pretty purple flower that catches your eye, something far more sinister may lurk.
At least that’s… Read full post »
I ran out at lunchtime in search of a pair of sandals for work. You know the kind I mean, simple slides with a reasonable heel that works well with suits, skirts and dresses. Three stores later, I realized it’s been a while since I shopped for shoes. And in my… Read full post »
In the spring of 2002, in thr days when 9/11 was still a raw wound for most Americans, I drove my pseudo-nephew to LaGuardia airport. As we passed Shea Stadium, a large banner was visible. It read, “God Bless America.” My American born, US passport holding, Croatia livin… Read full post »
He was the one. My best friend. My lover. My colleague. Owner of my heart. We were rarely an official couple. Our first five years were pure friendship. His marriage was destructing but not destructed. Eventually, he left his wife, being unable to cope… Read full post »
Helene was an elegant woman; the mother of an old friend that I reconnected with this winter. Helene had been married to Mel, and they were royalty at the Temple where I grew up.
When evaluating friend’s parents as substitutes for my own, Helene and Mel were one of… Read full post »
Do you dream awake?
Of cool days and hot evenings
Until it returns.
It’s the memory
That breaks you out in cold sweat
‘til vows are broken
We hide from outside

A year ago, the business was known as Jumbo Weiners. But that was a long time ago, before the legendary Weiner Wars. A time when venders rode roughshod over the competition in the quest for the biggest, baddest weiner. It was a time when no… Read full post »
My first real friend was Susie. She lived down the block in a maroon house that was slightly bigger than our house. She had an Airedale called Maggie and a much older brother named Adam. She also had a sister who had died before she was born. I remember staring at… Read full post »
I don’t give a rat’s ass about beauty pageants or the women who choose to participate in them. To me, the whole concept is an appalling commentary on the way we choose to view women in our society. That said, the most recent Miss USA contest, Donald Trumps’ foray into th… Read full post »
As a child, she dreamed of traveling to the stars. Lily fantasized about exploring the planets and moons. That was, until her first plane ride and her up close and personal experience with the vomit bag in her seat pocket. Crushed, dream shattered, she looked for the stars in other/… Read full post »
I’ve managed to avoid the whole Star Trek hype thing. I was a casual watcher of the reruns of the original series, but never anything more. For any number of reasons, it just never really resonated with me. Kirk’s delivery always made me giggle, the only thing funnier wa/… Read full post »
Danny moved closer, leaning in for a kiss. Hovering for a fraction of a second just a millimeter from her mouth, summoning up the courage to finally make his move. In that moment, she leaned in and met his lips. Their first kiss was now history, and he leaned back, basking/… Read full post »

Today is National Star Wars day. Who knew?
In honor of this national day of adoration, I have to admit I’m a fan. I still remember going to see the first Star Wars movie (episode IV, the good trilogy). I was fifteen years old, spending the… Read full post »
House cleaning and I are a pretty crappy combination. There are few activities I loathe more in than sweeping, mopping, dusting and cleaning. For many years, I’ve had someone come to my apartment every two weeks, and perform all these nightmarish tasks in my stead. It was wort… Read full post »
As a young kid, I once asked my mom the meaning of the word ‘fuck.’ I remember her hemming and hawing a bit before she answered. Finally, she told me it was a synonym for ‘shit’ (ok, she probably didn’t use/… Read full post »

The lights were with me for a few blocks this morning as I charged forward, making faster forward progress than usual. My luck ended, as the light ahead turned yellow, too far ahead for me to take the chance. I settled in at the red, taking a quick draw from the/… Read full post »
