Calendar Girl

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

I’ve got an iPhone and I use it to keep track of all the stuff I want to remember – grocery lists, appointments, deadlines. Probably most people have some sort of gadget – or maybe even  DayTimer (time machine alert!) so they don’t miss things.
So, tell me: if I can’t memorize my own schedule, why the hell does Gary expect me to remember his? (more…)

Future Perfect

Pass Me the Coke

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

Twenty years ago you couldn’t say “Coke” without making someone snicker and picture pubic hair on a Coke can. Yes, it’s been two decades since Anita Hill was dragged through the mud for coming forward with her story of sexual harassment  and Clarence Thomas was confirmed to a lifetime position on the Supreme Court, despite Anita’s testimony about his perverse nature (much of which has since been independently confirmed). Wherever you stand on that piece of history may be colored by your own history: if you’ve been a victim of harassment  (and I’m going to guess most women over 40 have been at one time or another) or if you’re a harasser yourself. . .
