We're (way) over 40. Deal with it.

No PDAs. . .or Else!

Friday, March 1st, 2013

We women over (and way over) 40 remember that back in the olden days, public displays of affection were absolutely verboten in the hallowed hallways of the school. And that meant no holding hands, hugging or, God forbid, kissing. I once got caught (more…)

Stop Spending My Money on Sports

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

You think colleges are for providing higher education? Grow up. These days, their real job is to provide entertainment for the masses of sports fanatics and spend billions of dollars on coaches, stadiums and players. . . who, quite often, don’t graduate (or “pass” without ever having to go to class).

The numbers are ridiculous. Hundreds of millions are spent on new stadiums. The football coach at U.S.C. makes over $4 million a year while (more…)

Beyond Beehive

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

For the past three weeks or so I’ve been vigorously planning my high school reunion (which is my way of an explanation as to why I haven’t blogged).

We Don’t Torture!

Sunday, November 22nd, 2009

I did two things this weekend that would, at first blush, seem totally unconnected but weren’t. First, I watched a made-for-TV movie on Lifetime (and can’t help secretly giggling over the fact that Gary, who caught parts of it while passing through the kitchen, wanted to know “So, what finally happened?” But I digress.). The movie was about a teenage girl who was being emotionally tortured by her supposed best friend and a bunch of junior witches. Who hasn’t been there? (Well, maybe not some of the girls I went to high school with. . . )

The second thing I did was tweeze my eyebrows.

So, you ask, how can these two disparate things be anyway connected? (more…)
