So I'm still on a woman kick. Yep, women. Or as Crow from MST3K once said "Women, women, women, women, women, women, women..."  Why, you might ask? Besides the fact that I am a woman? Well, here's the deal. Women have been scapegoats lately. Silly girls are being blamed for everything. So let'...

I was expecting to be a little more blorft. I was hoping to feel, after Tina Fey’s new movie came out, “completely overwhelmed but proceeding as if everything is fine” because I would suddenly be swamped with local celebrity attention and orders for my Renaissance Woman poster, which they’d...

I'm so excited for the forthcoming Tina Fey/Paul Rudd movie, Admission, for an unexpected reason: my superheroine poster is in it! Yeah, I got an email from Zazzle last fall saying they wanted to use it in a movie. Cool, I thought; some indie flick. When I realized the movie stars the author of one...

“All those writers who write about their childhood!  Gentle God, if I wrote about mine, you wouldn’t sit in the same room with me.” ~ Dorothy Parker Tina Fey’s biography, Bossypants, isn’t a Pulitzer by any means, but it’s got meat.   Chapter 2 jogged a few magical childhood memories...

This weekend, I had one of those driveway moments when I stumbled over NPR’s new collaboration with the Kitchen Sisters.  It is a series entitled The Hidden World of Girls and when I heard Tina Fey as the host, I knew I was in good company.  So far there are two one-hour segments (both of...

Because I'm known as a First Amendment purist and activist, I've received a number of messages and questions regarding Tracy Morgan and the First Amendment. I think it's worth expressing the following. First and foremost, only a government can censor speech. Organizations such as NBC also enjoy a...

Chillaxing at the Beach I like my summer reading like I like my ice cream: light, sweet, and refreshing.  Nothing heavy!  So I've been picking my titles very carefully. To me, summer reading should be full of guilty pleasures.  So, this summer, I'm heading for a little romance, some horror,...

“Date Night” is a reference to the popular Tina Fey movie. In our house, “Date Night” is also a reference to the very unpopular movie we saw on Saturday night. That’s right, I’m talking about The Clash of the Titans: 3D. My husband lovingly recollects the 1981 film version starring Laurence Olivier...
