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! […]

Escape From New York

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. […]

I Feel Your Pain

10 Jul

July is National Boredom Month, and so I celebrate boredom. Come on, cultivate your ennui.

And may the force be with you.

Arrrgh!

If you are feeling bored lately, here are 7 HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS to shake ya outta that weary funk:

 

1.   READ A BOOK.  WTF why not – How ’bout a clever book about boredom?

ANATOMY OF BOREDOM – Boredom: A Lively History by Peter Toohey (via BrainPickings!)

 

2.   PLAY OLD SCHOOL SCRABBLE – or a “bored game” of your choice – ‘TIL YOUR EYES BLEED or ‘TIL NOBODY IN YOUR FAMILY IS SPEAKING TO YOU.

3.    Catch up with the 21st century. Go electronic with Scrabble Flash.

 

4.   DRINK, preferably with friends (FB friends don’t count) and when in a jolly mood. Wine away.

5.   Join a club. Hmmm, here’s one!

 

7.   HIT the “celebrity news.” Reading about how bored senseless Paris Hilton and/or Lindsay Lohan are – with all their money, glam, beauty, youth, personal assistants, movie star friends, toys, talents, trainers, and resources – will help you focus on your own blessings…

like “Thank God, I can’t afford a cocaine habit,” or “Good thing I don’t have to worry about totaling my Porsche Carrera 997 S,” or “Darn, I don’t have anything to wear to my court appearance today.”
