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 Mom Flicks 4 Mother’s Day

9 May

 

FUNNY MOMS!

Enjoy a laugh or twenty with your kids!

Funny MOM movies for Mother’s day!

Some of our faves…

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! […]

Stir Crazy! Cabin Fever!

20 Feb

Prisoners of winter… I feel your pain.

The frigid weather is getting you down.

You are sick and tired of ice, sleet, snow, and single-digit temperatures.

One blizzard is a novelty; five is torture.

You may be going clinically stir crazy from being confined inside.

Feeling irritable, listless, achy, unproductive, homicidal?

More than usual, that is?

Your symptoms could be due to something totally unrelated:

PMS, hot flashes, African equine fever, tax time, or writer’s block.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (aka cabin fever, stir crazy, bonkers) is common… especially where the sun don’t shine – like the East Coast.

Let us diagnose you…

HOW TO KNOW IF YOU HAVE CABIN FEVER

  • You’re reading your friends’ blogs.
  • You’ve done so much online shopping – your mail carrier has a hernia.
  • The light on your cell phone screen doubles as a therapy light box. […]

I’m Wild About Billy Wilder

Billy Wilder… You’ve got to love a guy whose gravestone reads: 

Billy Wilder's grave

Some of my favorite quotes are from the legendary film director and screenwriter Billy Wilder:

From Brainy Quote:

I’d worship the ground you walked on if only you walked in a better neighborhood.

If you’re going to tell people the truth, be funny or they’ll kill you.

If there’s anything I hate more than not being taken seriously, is being taken too seriously.

His films are classic. Witty, smart, cynical, sweet, humorous. […]

Escape From New York

10 Jul

I Heart NYC?

I Heart NYC?      

 

No place epitomizes the American experience and the American spirit more than New York City.

– Michael Bloomberg

I have a love-hate relationship with NYC.  I lived there for years and still spend a good deal of time there now.  Once a New Yorker, always a New Yorker.

It’s a crazy, yet amazing place. Sometimes it is amazing in it’s sheer lunacy. It’s grand and impressive, yet the quality of life can seem fundamentally impoverished at times.  It’s heroic.  It’s tough and romantic. It’s never boring. The people are legendary.  They got chutzpah and pluck out the wazoo.  The city ain’t for wimps.

My daughter, fresh out of college, has lived there for the past two years. To survive and master living in Manhattan is often a tribute to one’s resilience.     manhattanmovie_medium

Here are some of the challenges encountered (the ones I know about, that is):

  • Triple-digit heatwaves with humidity thicker than your average politician.  Humidity should be classified a WMD.
  • An earthquake.  WTF?
  • A tropical storm with near gale force winds while working a music festival. Made Woodstock look like Kiddie Craft Camp.
  • A hurricane. Sandy brought a week without power, cell phones, internet service, and heat. However, this also presented a rewarding opportunity to help others in the community.
  • A terrorist plot to blow up the NYC subway system. […]

Malibu, Baby!

Malibu, Baby!

MAY DAY!   MAY DAY!

After a long winter and a chilly, slow start to spring…

(you may have noticed) it’s finally May.

The spring fever many of us felt in April was merely the flu.

So it’s time to squeeze in a celebration of spring before Memorial Day whacks us like a Wasabi wiener and folks (certainly not me) are complaining about how hot it is.

Is it hot in here or is it just me? […]

(I sincerely hope you haven’t slipped and cut your knee on a New Year’s Day “fitness” hike, come down with the flu, succumbed to a stubborn vocal cord infection and laryngitis, had a collision with a parking garage pole, received a swollen lip from the car door, broken an expensive glass vase in a gift store, and agreed to go to the movie Zero Dark Thirty on your wedding anniversary.)

If so (or worse!)… I feel your pain.

Speaking of pain, here are some Robitussin-induced musings: […]
