One of the sure signs of summer in suburbia is the neighborhood lemonade stand. Last week I dropped Boo off at the train station for a trip to CT for work. On our way to the train, we passed a lemonade stand, 25 cents a glass. We kept driving (so we wouldn’t miss his train)… Continue reading I hope they spit in her lemonade
Remember the old saying, “you’ll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar”? It still holds true. Recently I had a not-so-pleasant encounter with someone. They took offense to something I did and rather than calmly ask for what they wanted, they were rude and confrontational.

It’s been almost 3 months to the day that I left my job in the city. I’ve spent most of that time fighting with the New York State Department of Labor. Filing for unemployment is one of the biggest hassles on earth. Oh not the actual question/answer filing part, it’s the aftermath that kills you. … Continue reading Unemployment is a full time job
As a huge Gilmore Girls fan, I find myself on ABC Family at least once a day catching the reruns. Unfortunately though, while I’m there, I’m subjected to ABC Family’s commercials. Normally this wouldn’t be a problem. They’d be promoting some stupid movie and as we all know, me likey the stupid movies. But now–no… Continue reading Seriously?? We’re counting down the Christmas countdowns?! Stop the madness!
