Used Cows and Crumpled Flowers

Let’s talk about sex. A very personal topic, to be sure. And I’ll be straight with you, internet. I’ve never had it. I didn’t have it on prom night or experiment in college. I didn’t have a Bradshaw-esque one night stand in New York City or make a really bad drunken decision. (Well, that’s notContinue reading “Used Cows and Crumpled Flowers”

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”

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”

Pink!

When I was a kid, I hated pink, with a vengeance. My deep and utter loathing extended into middle school and high school and even into college. I thought myself to be a cool-colors kinda girl, gravitating to blues, greens and purples instead of pinks, oranges and yellows. My insistence on the evils of aContinue reading “Pink!”

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?”

39 Times Rom Coms Pissed Me Off

You know what really burns my butt? Romantic Comedies!! Because here I am over here…liberated female, free from the ties that bind me and then a movie like When Harry Met Sally comes on and all that level-headed nonsense goes right out the window because…reasons! It just burns. It stings actually. And the worst partContinue reading “39 Times Rom Coms Pissed Me Off”

Girls Do THIS, not THAT

Lately, H (9 year old girl twin) has been struggling with what it means to be a girl. Traditional gender roles don’t appeal to her. She doesn’t like pink. She rarely wears dresses. She loves to skateboard and she has the trendiest short hair cut that’s ever graced a 9 year old’s head. She could easilyContinue reading “Girls Do THIS, not THAT”
