Online Dating

It was my first foray back into the “wonderful world of online dating.” Actually, it was my re-introduction to dating after a very long time…period. And boy, was I rusty! I flexed my dating muscles by downloading 2 of the most popular dating apps: Tinder and Bumble. Basically the same thing in different clothes. The Dr. Jekyl and Mr.Continue reading “Online Dating”

Starry Night

When I think of starry nights, I think of one in particular. There was a girl and a boy and a perfect date. A date so memorable that I made an episode about it in my web series a few years ago. Take a look… You know what’s funny? Well, maybe funny is the wrongContinue reading “Starry Night”

On the Subject of…

High School. Recently I have been binge watching  the, sadly, short-lived Carrie Diaries (only 2 seasons…sad face.) And like all the teen dramas I’ve enjoyed in my life (Dawson’s Creek, The OC, One Tree Hill, etc) watching it makes me feel like maybe I missed something. I never had a first kiss in high schoolContinue reading “On the Subject of…”

What Coulda Been…

On Saturday evening, I got rear ended. Thank God my car wasn’t damaged and I only ended up with minor whiplash, all in all not a big deal. But here’s what coulda been… The guy coulda pulled over, checked to see if I was ok, if my car was ok. We coulda exchanged numbers. ItContinue reading “What Coulda Been…”

On the Subject of…

Dating! To say that I’ve put a moratorium on dating, would be a bit of an understatement. I’ve downright boycotted the concept, the institution, the application, the very existence of dating in my life. I’m not talking about the sweet, meet cute kind you find in rom coms. You know the kind… “Oops, I spilled myContinue reading “On the Subject of…”

Return to Blogland

You know what’s hard to do? Write a book about boys and dating when you currently have no interest in boys or dating. I know, I know…I wrote an entire 40 episode web series on boys and dating. So…there’s that. And I can’t really describe to you what’s changed. The fundamental paradigm shift that’s happened inContinue reading “Return to Blogland”

Where are all the Princes?

Today I want to talk about Princes. From a young, young age, little girls are taught about the Princes. “Someday My Prince Will Come.” “Kiss a frog, you might find a prince.” I just want to ask, where are all these Princes? Obviously America is not a monarch nation. So we don’t actually have anyContinue reading “Where are all the Princes?”

Modern Princess Instagram Challenge

April is here! Spring has sprung. And when I open my window, woodland creatures come in and help me dress every morning! Life is a fairytale, dreams are rainbows and rainbows are real. Soon I’ll break into song and dance! Cause…Hey! It’s Friday. And what were Fridays made for, if not song and dance andContinue reading “Modern Princess Instagram Challenge”

Platonic Friendlationships

Downton Abbey Season 6 Spoilers Ahead…       I confess. As I’ve watched Downton Abbey the last 2 seasons, I’ve come to wish that Branson and Mary would try and make a go of it. After all, they get along famously and make each other genuinely better people (especially in Mary’s case.) Plus littleContinue reading “Platonic Friendlationships”

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?

If you are a die hard Jane Austen fan, like me, then perhaps you are or were skeptical about the merits of a book that adds blood, gore and the undead into the prim and proper world of Austen’s Regency Era story. Guess what…the resulting work is simply astoundingly fun! A match made in heaven orContinue reading “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?”
