Oh look, Fat Me is back. (And I really like her!)

Oh look, Fat Me is back. (And I really like her!)
When I woke up, Fat Me was back. The High School Girl jeans I had no business buying in the first place are threatening to bail on me if I continue to, well…. grow. So, fine. Less 7 Layer Burritos, more lettuce. Good. It would serve me well to put the brakes on the food... Read more »

Dear Son: Here are 10 things I've learned about life in the 14 years since my last drink

Dear Son: Here are 10 things I've learned about life in the 14 years since my last drink
Dear Son- A bajillion years ago I was an entirely different person with a bad habit. Mommy was a bit of a bitch, son. Then I stopped the bad habit. And here is some sober advice for you that I learned from living in reality for 14 years. In a row. (Take it or leave... Read more »

Being single ain't for wusses...

Being single ain't for wusses...
When it comes to being single, I live on some weird border of Prideland. I mean for Heaven’s sake, it’s my middle name! I have never had a “wedding fantasy.” I am baffled at why people still spend so much money on wedding rings. It seems to me like it should be more an “a... Read more »

Lessons I learned at the taping of Oprah's Life Class

Lessons I learned at the taping of Oprah's Life Class
This past Monday, I was a friend’s guest for the taping of Oprah’s Life Class, with Iyanla Vanzant. The topic was “Single Moms,” so, I was a fit. I have struggled with what I want to say about my experience. Just underneath the fun of “out of the ordinary”-ness, and the splendid time spent with... Read more »

Sometimes I wish I was a little sluttier...

Sometimes I wish I was a little sluttier...
Sometimes I wish I was a little more Sandy than Sandra Dee. (I’m not)  I wish even a few of my friends got benefits.  (They don’t.) On a Ka-Rayyyy-Zee  Morning Radio show this past week, they shared that in some poll out there, 35% said they had had “rebound sex” within a month after a... Read more »

I weigh how much?? Quick, someone break up with me again!

I weigh how much?? Quick, someone break up with me again!
After big break ups, you get skinny. My friend Shayne calls it  “The Loss.”  So perfect. Metabolism goes turbo on the tiny amounts of food your friends make you eat.  As bad as shit is during a Relationshift, there is that undeniable ego boost when one catches a glimpse of their newly gaunt self in the...

Relationships: Are you "being private" or "hiding the truth?"

Relationships: Are you "being private" or "hiding the truth?"
We all have our “back pocket stories.” Those “old faithfuls”, ready to go at a moment’s notice for, say, a table of strangers at Benihana, or an office Christmas party, or on the arm of a spouse at a mandatory function.  They are practiced, true, and rote. They serve us well. But there are times... Read more »

Can a five year old fall in love?

Can a five year old fall in love?
A first: My five year old has a crush. I recognized a familiar buzz-buzz something bandying about the consonants when I heard him say: “It disturbed me to see Jeffrey hug Angelique so much.” ….disturbed… “Did you think it bothered her when he hugged her so much?” I asked him. “Yes, I do.” “And is that...

Aging out of the "Hot" window

Aging out of the "Hot" window
Let me start by making a bold and possibly annoying statement: I am looking prett-ty good these days. I’m not saying I’m “all that” 24/7, and yeah, it still takes a little work, but my rolls of “sad fat” have melted away, I have truly embraced my perpetually messy hair, and I took the plunge into...

Having a tea party with your Anger and Rage..

Having a tea party with your Anger and Rage..
Anger and Rage get such a bad rap these days. I remember when Alanis Morissette’s “You Oughtta Know” came out, and people were all like, “Whoa! That is one angry bitch!“  It bugged the shitouttame when people said that. Is she not allowed to be super pissed that her man moved on so quickly after... Read more »
