How To Not Talk To Your Child About The Apple Juice/Arsenic Issue

November 30, 2011

This morning I was watching the Today Show, my morning guilty pleasure. Which is not to be confused with General Hospital, my afternoon guilty pleasure, and the Bravo network, my evening guilty pleasure. I was happy to see that Dr. Oz was coming up. I love Dr. Oz. What I love most about him is […]

I’m Kright, You’re Kwrong!

November 3, 2011

It’s time, once again, for I’m Right, You’re Wrong–a post where I share a disagreement that I had with a loved one and ask the internet to weigh in. To protect the scientific integrity of this process, I don’t disclose which position I support. This week’s dilemma is brought to us by the tragic news […]

I’m upset about the news from around the world and I need a break so I turn to my kids. On Friday, we were stuck on the subway for a super long time.  Fortunately the train had half-pulled into the station, so I could see that help could be on the way if needed and […]

We Don’t Care About Casey Anthony

July 19, 2011

The other day I was sitting around, thinking about how I was so much better than other people. Oh, don’t get excited. I don’t mean First Responders or anything, but you know, regular people. Like you and me. But that’s not important right now, I just felt like sharing. My blog, you know. So I’m […]

Oh, Old Navy. Make It Better.

May 31, 2011

Last week I fell a little bit more in love with Old Navy. I’ve always been a fan, but when I read that they were launching a line of gay pride t-shirts, donating 10% of the proceeds to It Gets Better, my respect for them increased. Awesome, right? Even though it’s a little (or a […]

The Casey Anthony Case

May 24, 2011

(This post is completely humor-free. And possibly offensive to some people. Please come back later in the week for fun and laughter!) I can’t look away. Casey Anthony goes on trial today for the murder of her 2 year old daughter. It feels uncomfortable to type those words even. I remember the summer of 2008 […]

I Could Have Saved Them A Lot of Money

May 19, 2011

Yesterday I read the New York Times front page story about the $1.8 million report commissioned by the U.S. Roman Catholic Bishops to get to the bottom of the church sexual abuse crisis. The good news is that neither the all-male celibate priesthood nor homosexuality is to blame. That is indeed good news, especially for […]

In Case of Sudden Death

April 20, 2011

Yesterday afternoon I was walking to the subway, when suddenly I realized that if I were murdered on my way home, no one would pick up the kids from school. And with my personality, it’s sort of a miracle that I haven’t been repeatedly murdered already. I nearly keeled over from the weight of that […]
