Greeting Cards for People Who Adore the “F” Word

13 Nov

 

The “F” word.

It’s everywhere you looks!

In the culture, in the books.

As Stephen Sondheim might say,

“In the parlor, in the bed
In the curtains, in the silver
In the buttons, in the bread”

Everyday a little “F.”

Profanity is ubiquitous (don’t you love that word?)

I Feel Your Pain: Dead or Alive

Can life be devoid of pain?

TheScream

I saw a billboard recently that advertised “TOTAL Sleep Dentistry.”

On it was a hot, young blonde (is there any other kind in L.A.?)

She was wearing an itsy bitsy red polka dot bikini (or was it a thong with Spandex pasties?) and a glistening smile.

Her blinding whites sparkled in a movie star kind of way – as if  touched – not from a toothbrush, but by Tinker Bell’s magic wand.

The message went on to promise… […]

Mindfulness, Meditation and Me

21 Oct

 

mindfulness

 

MINDFUL AWARENESS can be defined as paying attention to present moment experiences with openness, curiosity, and a willingness to be with what is. It is an excellent antidote to the stresses of modern times. It invites us to stop, breathe, observe, and connect with one’s inner experience.
- Diana Winston, Director for Mindfulness Education at UCLA MARC / The Mindful Awareness Research Center/Cousins Center for Psychoneuroimmunology

 

Sounds painful, doesn’t it? 
All that paining (oops, I mean paying) attention?

 

In an attempt to build my meditation muscle and tone down my snark impulse…

A Third Breast? 5 GOOD Reasons to Add One!

24 Sep

Mamma Mia!

Woman undergoes surgery to add third breast.

Why? You ask!

“I got it because I wanted to make myself unattractive to men. Because I don’t want to date anymore,” Jasmine said.
Honey, couldn’t you just skip waxing and adopt five cats?

Also, it seems Jasmine has the dream of having her own Reality TV show.

Not a bad hoax. But it got me to thinking…

Prescription Drug Name or Disney Character?

17 Sep

What’s in a name? In a prescription drug name?

Drug companies sell directly to the consumer/patient/poor schlub like me via TV commercials.

Doctors now take prescription requests.

“Doc, I saw this snazzy, sexy ad for “Beallus” that was shot on the beach in Hawaii. God, I’m in pain.

I’d like to try some of that! Pen me a prescription, will you?”

The prescription drug names are cool and catchy. They promise an orgasmic paradise, a spa experience, a pain-free existence.

But… many drug names sound like Disney characters to me. […]
