I’m about to tell you something shocking. Something that it took me about a month to even believe was actually a genuine thing I was feeling and that I shook off at first as either momentary hysteria, a bad bottle of Chardonnay, or perhaps a weird side effect of aging. Here goes. My computer has […]

  • Snarkfest - This sounds like a place I need to go!! I wish there was one closer to me than Pittsburgh, but when I come visit you, you can take me to your store and style me all up the way I need to be styled up. You, Joy and I can make a day of it!! <3 Congrats, my friend, I'm over the moon happy for you!!ReplyCancel

Recently I was chatting with my dentist (as I do) because 1.) I have high levels of anxiety at the dentist which causes me to over share and babble (more than is usual), and 2.) my dentist is awesome, and I was telling her about how I’d just talked to my 20-year-old daughter who was in NYC with my husband, sitting […]

  • J McClelland - We have 4 kids (ages 11-17) and our favorite pastime is dreaming of the day when they are all gone! Thank you for confirming what we know is going to be utopia! Ha
    We have friends that are aghast when we talk about kicking the kids out after they graduate (they usually just have 1 to 2 still-cute kiddos). We think they’re the weird ones.
    I can’t wait until the time that I can put something out and it won’t either disappear or become broken. Or I won’t have to hear about how I’m ruining a life by not letting them have their own iPhone…ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - “…our favorite pastime is dreaming of the day when they are all gone” — bahahahaha!! Glad to hear I’m not the only one who prefers my kids older than younger these days. Pretty awesome when they become your adult friends!ReplyCancel

It’s not surprising that I’m proud of my 15-year-old daughter for loads of things. She’s smart, talented, funny, empathetic, kind, driven, and possesses a wicked, sarcastic sense of humor. But what I might actually be most proud of her for—and what won’t be surprising to those who know me—is this: she’s a superfan. Superfan [soo-per-fan] noun A person who exhibits […]

ARE YA’LL READY FOR THIS?? It’s game time, fellow superfans. The long off-season is over and it’s time for kickoff! For the next five months we’ll be predicting, wagering, diagraming, cheering, groaning, and drinking as we watch our favorites win and lose. That’s right, folks, it’s the best time of the year: Awards show season. Kicking […]

  • pamb - One slight correction, it was Jeffrey Tambor who gave the tribute to Garry Shandling. He played Garry’s sidekick Hank on the Larry Sanders Show (his catchphrase was ‘hey now’, which is why he said it before the montage).

    Because I am OLD, I was in college when Wham first appeared in the US as Wham UK. I had to go to the indie record store to buy the expensive import version of their album, and felt SO COOL.Wikipedia Wham UK Fantastic to se the boys in motorcycle jackets. No, I still don’t have the album :(ReplyCancel

    You nailed it, she’s TOTALLY morphed into Marie Osmond, except Mormons and Scientologists aren’t supposed to intermingle, are they? I hope they don’t get caught!ReplyCancel

Yesterday I upgraded my phone to iOS 10. I spent a full hour playing with the new features in iMessages alone. I sent gif images, stickers, bursts of confetti, and floaty balloons to the family text group for so long that two of them went dark on me. Apparently if you have a real job […]
