Or maybe I should call it We Aint Canada.
Here's why we won't have a cool healthcare system like France or Canada.
1. We are, as a nation, unhealthy whiners who take very little personal responsibility for our well being. We really DO think that someone is going to take care… Read full post »
Will someone please tell me why, in the age of iPhone, there are not better advancements in women's gynecological health? If a 42 year old woman wants to remain child free but still sexually active in the forest does anyone hear it? No.
Now, I like my gyno. He's like Sam… Read full post »
My assistant has "OCD", because, she says, she needs to have a schedule. My friend Karen is "addicted" to chocolate. My date on Friday had "ADD" because he jumped around in conversation. A guy I hardly know called my allergy to scallops a seafood "rant".
Why are we so quick to… Read full post »
As difficult as it is for men and women to communicate from time to time, nothing makes this more apparent than the awkward online intro. I was thinking today after a couple weeks of dating all kinds of charming, witty, clever EMAIL writers that I DO NOT want to have sex… Read full post »
When you were little did you every hang out with your best friend so much that you just hated them? I did. I stuffed every waking minute with my friend Grace until we eventually had our 6 year old fill of Barbies, office phone making, palm frond swinging, basketball, jump rope… Read full post »
In response to all the people who don't think that they can "afford" to eat organic, good food...and that we don't need to restructure our Dept of AG? Get on board. Get your neighbor on board. It's more important than tax brackets for sure.

This is my first official year out of the hospitality industry since I was 18. I have worked at hotels through Thanksgiving and Christmas and have worked every New Year's Eve of my adult life. The only decorating I do is for the buffet table at your company soiree, or maybe… Read full post »
A month ago I was in St. Paul, MN visiting family. I've never really been out and about there but was excited to explore the city, like I am pretty much anywhere. Tuscany to Tulum. I did my research and settled on a chef owned bistro downtown with a classic menu… Read full post »
So my 24 year old nephew and I are discussing what should be his cocktail of choice. He lives in Spain and is an artist. He's emo and trendy and ambiguous about his sexuality. He needs a cocktail. He's been drinking Black Russians.
No, no, no. I say, no self… Read full post »
"I've always dreamed of owning my own restaurant..."
Of course you have. It's fun and glamorous and creative and fulfilling and the longest 30,000 hours of my life.
The two hours you spend at table in the glittering candlelight are prefaced with twelve hours of prep, sweat, shopping, haggling, clean… Read full post »
A friend of mine said the other day: "You're such a wordy person. You love words, wordsmithing, conversation, ad copy, reading, blathering, street signs, song lyrics. I can't believe that you wouldn't enjoy a man who was a bit more talkative, communicative...more of a Challenge?"
And there it was. T… Read full post »
As I pack for another sojourn to Europe. I worry about the cost of everything. The dog kennel. Parking. The taxi. Eurostar trains. But I can drink Nebbiolo and Amarone for about $4bucks so it balances out in my mind. It will be fun but it… Read full post »
Javier was the Face of Love. But that was Saturday. In Spain. Things looked differently through Rioja tinted glasses. In a candlelit restaurant. While on a date with a nerd named Roger, who ate my duck while I was in the ladies room. Roger had the kind of teeth that could… Read full post »
