Whoosh! Another year has passed like a kidney stone.

Happy New Year!

7 Things I Learned in 2014:

We live. We learn. I feel your pain.

  1. If your hair is falling out, go to the doctor.
  2. Don’t ink and drive. Put the Post-it notes away!
  3. If done wrong, yoga can hurt you more than crocodile wrestling.
  4. The holidays can give you a hangover comparable to one from a Jacuzzi full of vodka martinis.
  5. Don’t bite down on ice, ginger chews, or errant popcorn kernels unless you crave intimate time with your gabby dentist.
  6. The more you do… the more that needs to be done. (Fig Newton’s Law of Momentum)
  7. With age comes perks. I personally delight in my cackle*
    *a raucous laugh resembling the cry of a hen or goose.

 New Year’s Tip: Keep Calm & Cackle On!

Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas

1 Dec

 

To Google or not to Google.

 

That is the question… must we Google?

but you may have OGD… Obsessive Google Disorder.

 

What is OGD anyway? […]

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?)

Everyone wants to change the world.

Great Ideas that will Change the World

(well, maybe just mine or yours )

Summer Time and the livin’ is… easy?

Maybe if you ignore your mile-long “TO DO” List.

Chuck it – Yes! – Chuck that Summer Sand Bucket List!

My Summer “TO DO” List is starting to resemble my annual “New Year Resolutions.”

Not a bad time to recycle.

My TO DO List for SUM-SUM-SUM SUMMER:

  • Do nothing. (Unfortunately, so much harder than it sounds. Like meditation or quitting caffeine.)

FUNNY MOMS!

Enjoy a laugh or twenty with your kids!

Funny MOM movies for Mother’s day!

Freaky Friday

Jamie Lee Curtis – she’s the mother, she’s the daughter, she’s the mother in the daughter’s body, she’s the daughter in the mother’s body?  Whatever!  Gosh, role reversal comedies are confusing!

She jams at The House of Blues with your garage band, tells your creepy English teacher to take a hike, hops on a Harley for a love ride with the dreamy boy you’re bonkers about and smooches him good – even if it is with her lips, not yours!

 

Mean Girls

Amy Poehler is alpha Plastic Regina George’s “cool mom” in Tina Fey’s screenplay.

What kind of mother flaunts her breast implants, talks trash with your gal friends and offers you an afternoon cocktail?

Hey, don’t judge – it keeps her feeling young! […]

HAPPY SPRING!

IT MUST BE SPRING SOMEWHERE –

AND YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS…

SPRING CLEANING FOR SLOBS!

UGH! I HATE CLEANING AS MUCH AS YOU DO.

BUT IT’S TIME FOR SPRING CLEANING WHEN…

1.   The icy dirt on your wood floors is starting to defrost.

2.   You can write a YA trilogy in the dust on your furniture. […]
