When I was in college (1986 I was invited not to return after the first year) I had a boyfriend from the Bronx. He had long hair and an earring. He wore a black leather jacket and aviator sunglasses. To a girl from the white-bread bland Connecticut suburbs he was about as bad-ass as it … Continue reading Yama-hahah
There are some people who would do away with the Old Testament, dismissing it as irrelevant or only for the Jews. While there certainly are things in there that were just for the Jews, or just for people in general at the time, or in the specific geographical locations at the time, there is so … Continue reading Golden Calf 2.0
In 1990 I moved to the village of Rowayton, Connecticut. It's a wealthy little section of Norwalk, but a whole different world from the rest of the town. I'd never been to church before, aside from a single visit to a Methodist church when I was a kid, and maybe a family wedding or two. … Continue reading Blessing of the Animals

That became one of my favorite lines, ever. And it's TRUE! Trust me, if I'm watching TV, or driving somewhere, or even having a conversation with … Continue reading So Creepy!!!
I'm feeling old lately. Seriously. When Bates Motel first came out as a series I watched a few episodes and was hooked. Our 21 year old neighbor was also a fan, and he used to come hang out with us once in a while. He didn't have a relationship with his parents and I suspect … Continue reading Fifty Shades of Gray Hair
Tats, anyone? I'm a fan. I'm in my 50's now and haven't gotten any lately but I don't regret any of the half dozen I got in years gone by. Every one of them has a story of some sort, don't they? When I was in my early 20's I had a friend named Amy. … Continue reading Tattoo You!
So, just the other day, together we admitted that we'd read fan fiction. And some admitted that we'd written it. So, let's keep pulling skeletons out of the closet, together! Reality TV shows. Who stays up late at night to watch their favorite reality show that they had to DVR because their spouse or partner … Continue reading Reality TV
Come on, admit it. Fan Fiction. You know what it is. The guilty little secret so many of us live with. Isn't it time to just 'fess up? Say it with me; I HAVE READ FAN FICTION. There, that wasn't so hard, was it? Maybe later we'll admit together that we also WROTE Fan Fiction. … Continue reading Fan Fiction
