Join me in Times Square for some Special K Resolutions

This coming Monday, January 3rd, I’m very excited to be participating in a special “resolutions” event in Times Square, the Special K Gain Tour.  For so many people, New Years is a time to find a renewed motivation for being healthy and losing weight, but it’s easy to get obsessed with the numbers on the […]

And on Friday Fiona will lose an arm in a wheat thresher

So we’re in Buffalo visiting my mom.  We got in very late Monday (or, technically, very early Tuesday) and I went to lunch with a couple of high school friends on Tuesday.  When I got back to my mom’s house nobody was here.  After a while I got a call from Jake saying that Fiona […]

Merry Christmas, and good luck

As the clock ticks down to the end of another Christmas, I wanted to say how grateful I am for everything I have.  My family is healthy and happy, my husband has a good job, and I’ve been fortunate to turn a hobby I love into a fledgling career.  I’m lucky. It makes me sad […]

Breaking spaghetti

A while back I was watching a rerun of one of my favorite shows, NUMB3RS, and Charlie mentioned that you can’t hold a strand of spaghetti at the ends and break it into less than three pieces, due to something called fragmentation.  Of course I had to try it immediately, and then spent a while […]

My interview with Blythe Danner, from “Little Fockers”

I got to sit down recently with some very talented actors.  After interviewing Little Fockers cast members Daisy Tahan, Colin Baiocchi, and Jessica Alba, I ended the day getting to meet someone who’s been making me laugh for years on everything from MASH to Will & Grace to the entire Meet the Parents franchise. Blythe […]

Yup, it’s a post about my hair (and Jake Gyllenhaal)

I changed my twitter picture yesterday, for the first time ever, and I’ve lost count of how many compliments I’ve gotten about my hair.  Yes, I curled it that day (I was going to a party).  And yes, it took a long time – about an hour start to finish (I have a crapload of […]

Jessica Alba talks “Little Fockers,” Motherhood, and Life in a Fishbowl

Recently I sat down with some other bloggers and a few cast members of the new movie Little Fockers, opening December 22nd (today!).  Yesterday I posted my interview with the two funny kids in the movie, Daisy Tahan and Colin Baiocchi. After they left, we all (the bloggers) started talking amongst ourselves, and Jessica Alba […]

My sit down with some “Little Fockers”

I had the opportunity recently to sit down with some cast members from the new movie Little Fockers, which opens on December 22nd.  There are worse ways to spend a Sunday than at the Ritz Carlton with some other bloggers, talking to an actress I’ve admired for decades (Blythe Danner), a red hot super gorgeous […]

Randomosity – crazy Christmas Week edition

Hear Me Warble Every year @Neilochka collects up songs and pictures from his readers and posts them in one big “blogger concert.” Isn’t that genius?  This year I submitted at the last minute (come to think of it, I think I submitted at the last minute last year too…I sense a pattern) so I’m way […]

The best cordless phone system for under $100 in the history of the entire universe, from Panasonic

I’m not sure I should have to say more after that headline, but I guess you’ll want some details. Seriously, the Panasonic DECT 6.0 Plus Link-To-Cell Bluetooth cordless phone system is the best phone system I’ve ever owned.  And I’ve owned a lot of them over the years, including a couple that cost way more […]
