And I don’t know which is more unbelievable! I never, ever miss one of my top three awards shows…Emmys, Golden Globes, and Oscars. I detox the day before to prep my liver for the cocktails and wine I put back during the all-important red carpet. I plan meals. I clean the house. I issue directives to those living with me. Everyone takes part in the … Continue reading Gripped by Netflix’s Unbelievable, I Missed the Emmys
I love this song, but perhaps I’ve listened to it too much, because…. Problem One: It’s stuck in my head. For days now. Only the first line. And I believe it’s grammatically incorrect. Problem Two: I don’t think I can legally quote the line in my blog without the publishers coming after me. I tried researching this bit, but even if I give full credit … Continue reading Lizzo Blockbuster “Truth Hurts” is Awesome, But There’s a Problem
Something’s been bothering me about the latest outpouring of concern over Mama June’s situation. I know what it is. Misplaced compassion. (Spoiler alert… this blog is a downer.) Sorry folks, I think we need to focus on the real victims—her four children. Like a lot of people, I was riveted by Mama June and her family and watched the saga unfold from the beginning with … Continue reading Let’s Get Perspective on Mama June
Tim Gunn, where are you? I need you to make an app. It’s the middle of the night and I can’t sleep and I began thinking seriously about getting the app I previously wrote about called Calm. (See blog entitled, It’s a Dunderstorm). Among other things on Calm, soothing stories are read by actors with pleasing, appealing voices like Matthew McConaughey. But Tim Gunn could … Continue reading I Need A Tim Gunn App

There was a bear rescue in Russia. I think. A mama bear and two cubs were stranded in the water. The problem is I may never know how the story turned out because I got too irritated to complete reading it. Like everyone else, I typically flip through the feed of stories on my browser, but I rarely click to read things from sources I’m … Continue reading Browser Feed Sources on Crack
That’s what my kids call it. Is there anything better than a thunderstorm in the middle of the night? Lying in bed, feeling snuggly under the covers as the skies rumble outside. After my mom passed, I did what you call, took to bed, and for many weeks, comforted myself listening to thunderstorms. You can play them through a variety of apps, but I listened … Continue reading It’s a Dunderstorm!
Boom! No one can accuse me of burying the lead. I need to stop watching NOVA. Sometimes, when the Bravo channel lineup isn’t running a show I watch, and I’m too lazy to hook up my electronics to one of our non-smart TV’s, I’ll run through the channels. Antiques Roadshow usually grabs my attention, but like someone reluctantly peering under a bandage to look at … Continue reading Supermassive Black Hole in Center of Milky Way!
Queer Eye for the Straight Guy fills me up. Both the original version and the new. I defy you to watch the first episode of the reboot version: Season 4, entitled Without Further Ado and not tear up. Do it! Spoiler Below! This season opener is all about one of the guys—Jonathan Van Ness and his Illinois high school orchestra teacher. The woman had been … Continue reading Queer Eye For the Straight Guy…You Rock!
For those of you who read my blog, you won’t be surprised when I say Kelly Reilly, but as her character from the show Yellowstone, Beth Dutton. Let’s see what happens…. Beth Dutton and I travelled alone in the back of the luxury motorhome, a hired driver from the ranch at the wheel. I’d somehow persuaded her to give me, a freelance journalist, an interview. … Continue reading A Pretend Camping Trip with Anyone I Want? Hmm.
