Happy great excuse to day drink, ya’ll! It’s Friday and St. Patrick’s Day, which I’m pretty sure means we’re all Irish today. TBH, I never really celebrate or celebrated St. Patrick’s Day, which is a bit perplexing since my absolute favorite color is green. The fact that if I have just one cocktail in the […]

  • karen - I’ve read The Vacationers…it’s good…not GREAT…I just finished The Secret Life of Violet Grant…a book I randomly picked up and loved it….it’s funny, interesting…and always a sign of a good book…I miss the characters.. Enjoy your weekend.

    I also read Big Little Lies…but can’t watch the show…Reese and Nicole would drive me crazy…blaReplyCancel

    • Michelle - Thank you! I will definitely check out The Secret Life of Violet Grant! And oh my gosh I just started watching the second episode of BLL and you nailed it — Nicole and Reese are too unbearable. I so don’t get why they are such beloved actresses. It’s like I can SEE the script they’re reading. They’re both so overrated. And not like Meryl Streep. 😉ReplyCancel

Here’s a question for you. You have two choices of what to eat for dinner: 1.) a lovely, balanced meal that will leave you feeling sated, happy, energized, and good about yourself or 2.) a steak that looks lovely but is actually so tough and difficult to get through that it leaves you feeling frustrated, […]

  • Snarkfest - Even if you copied pages out of the phone book, I’d STILL read YMFT. Because I love your writing. And you. Just sayin.ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - You are always so sweet! MWAH!

      The number of free drinks for you if/when we ever meet in person just keeps growing…

Today the little blog turns 5-years-old. They grow up so fast, don’t they? For the past few years I’ve written blogiversary posts about what new developments the year has brought the blog &/or me as a writer. This year I’ve got nothing. It’s a lot like with your kids. You know, when they’re first born […]

  • Karen - Happy Anniversary. I love your blog and writing. A few years ago I was searching the blogs for one that dealt with teen issues with humour — and yours was perfect. Not only do we have similar addictions to pop culture ( Zac Efron, Parenthood, Gilmore Girls etc), but we have teens in similar situations. I thank you for saving me mindless hours of TV watching when I can just read your Bachelor recaps. Basically a long way of saying… please keep writing when you can. Lots of us enjoy it !ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - Thank you so much for this nice comment and for being such a loyal reader and FB “liker” and commenter!! So glad we can be e-friends!ReplyCancel

You guys, I didn’t think it could happen, and last night it did. The Bachelor took us to new heights.Well, all of us but Raven. Seriously, just when you think this show — notably, the Fantasy Suite episode — couldn’t get any more uncomfortable and weird and cringeworthy, it does. And surprisingly and downright shockingly […]

In a few days my 21-year-old daughter will board an airplane (by herself) and travel halfway around the world (by herself) to spend four and a half months studying abroad in Brisbane, Australia (not by herself but with people with much cooler accents … and koalas, which are my very favorite animal). And for the […]

  • Snarkfest - Oh Lord. 4 months in Australia??? I’m buying stock in Chardonnay. Good luck with this! Much love to you.ReplyCancel

Two recaps in one post, ya’ll, and yes, I’m doubly disappointed in myself. One, for continuing with this disaster of a season at all, and two, for giving up three + extra hours of my life slogging through it here on the blog for another week when only like 54 people are bothering to read […]

  • Sue K. - Proud to be one of the 54!!! Once again you nailed it. This is the best thing on the internet right now.ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - Well, while I’m not sure I’d totally agree with that marvelous compliment I will agree that 99% of what’s out there these days (from all sides) is making me sick…er than having to watch Nick for two hours each week. 😛 Love you for that sweet comment and for being a loyal reader! xoReplyCancel
