Always Be Prepared For Cold & Flu Season

If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting![The following post is sponsored by SheSpeaks/P&G.] This past weekend I was in Disney World for the Princess Half Marathon. I have a standard packing list for this particular run, which I’ve been doing for five years now. It includes […]

Major Microsoft Band Updates Today

I’m doing this totally backwards. A week ago I announced on social media that I’d finally gotten my hands on a review unit of the Microsoft Band. I wasn’t even trying to get a review unit initially; the Band was supposed to be my husband’s birthday gift to me way back in October. But after […]

But What Does Cindy Crawford Think?

  View image | gettyimages.com   A picture of Cindy Crawford’s loose, wrinkly tummy has been burning up the internet all week. And part of me loved looking at it. I mean, finding out that a supermodel doesn’t still have a perfect body, even at 48 years old and after having two kids? Yes, there […]

How To Get A Flight When Yours Has Been Cancelled

I’m sitting in my empty house right now enjoying some peace and quiet, and the rest of my family is in Florida, when many many other people had their travel plans ruined or postponed because of snow. They would not be in Florida right now if I hadn’t been very proactive about the impending storm. […]

Skating With The Greats For A Great Cause

I’m very happy to announce that I’m going to be doing some pro bono writing this year for a really great charity: The Ronald McDonald House of New York.

Jon Stewart Is Leaving The Daily Show But It Will All Be OK…Eventually

This is what I’ve been telling myself anyway. Today Comedy Central announced that Jon Stewart is leaving The Daily Show. In 1998 I got married and moved to the NYC area. I was working here and there as an extra on various TV shows and movies and auditioning for better things, but I had a […]

Upping My Game With Citizen

I don’t do New Year’s resolutions. It’s a really bad idea for someone with my brain. Nevertheless, the beginning of the year is always a good time for me to take stock and get stuff done. While December is always the absolute craziest time of year for me, January and February are always the slowest. […]

Raising Children Is Like Flying In An Airplane

If you sit next to me on an airplane, you’ll see a calm, slightly annoyed-looking woman, probably wearing headphones or trying to fall asleep (which may just be a ploy not to talk to you, seatmate; nothing personal, I’m sure you’re very nice – I just hate small talk). I won’t be popping anti-anxiety meds […]

The Subway Etiquette Signs We Really Need

Recently the MTA here in NYC started putting up cute etiquette signs in the subways, like these, asking people to be considerate and not do certain things: The problem is, if the worst thing I saw on the subway was a guy eating French fries, a woman doing her hair, or some kid showing off […]
