I'll admit it: sometimes being single sucks

I'll admit it: sometimes being single sucks
Okay, yeah. I’ll admit it. Sometimes being single sucks. Over the weekend, I fell down. Now, falling, in and of itself, isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In my experience, you can accomplish a lot between the misstep and the ground: epiphanies. Brainstorms. Huge life decisions are sometimes revealed on impact. #fallingcanbefun But this weekend, when... Read more »

Pajama Jeans? I have been wearing those since the day I discovered booze

Pajama Jeans? I have been wearing those since the day I discovered booze
(Disclaimer: the Pajama Jean company in no way knows, endorses or gives a flip that I wrote this.) Pajama Jeans are real things. Their motto?  Pajamas you live in. Jeans you sleep in. But let it be known here and now that I invented the concept of Pajama Jeans a long, long, long time ago. I... Read more »

Why Tinder scares the living crap out of me

Why Tinder scares the living crap out of me
Let me get this straight: Tinder is like a dating gong show, where profile pictures are the acts, and someone’s greasy-ass thumb is the gong? And in this smart phone gong show, the fate of my date-worthiness is decided in a single glance? Oh Hell No, Tinder. I am not sure whether my Tinder-Horror says... Read more »

OMG OMG OMG! Can we please talk about that tv show "Hoarding: Buried Alive"?

OMG OMG OMG! Can we please talk about that tv show "Hoarding: Buried Alive"?
Welcome to the first post of the second year of “my so blogged life.”  It just seems right that we should begin this second year with a post about that show Hoarding: Buried Alive. (spoiler alert: not for the squeamish..) I have only recently returned to a life with cable, and am still trying to... 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...

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...
