Don’t know why, but the flight out to Rome just seemed to take forever and ever. Couple that feeling with a slew of airport mix-ups (stroller lost; driver gave up; phone just wouldn’t work) that by the time we reached our hotel we were beat. But of course, […]
I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine! A social marketing expert and psychologist by training who works in the public health field trying to bring a little common sense to it all.
All the world is my television and I like to provide commentary on it.
It is 8:24 am. Three cups of coffee, two coke zeros and one bag of gummies and I am still tired. And I have six meetings to look forward to throughout the day. That is, six meetings that I know of. Who knows how many countless unexpected crazy […]
French sociologist Jean Baudrillard, no doubt with a typically French sneer, once commented, “Americans may have no identity, but they do have wonderful teeth”. Well, compared to Europeans, we do indeed have wonderful teeth, but in addition to that we have learned the fine art of living without […]
It is the second day of spring and I am not feeling the warmth at all. It’s been dreary and people all around me have been at very low energy. It’s been a series of hard-knock months. I keep looking out my window, which faces the Empire State […]
English romantic poet Lord Byron (1788-1824 A.D.), the patron saint of aristocratic excess once said, “Roll on, deep and dark blue ocean, roll. Ten thousand fleets sweep over thee in vain. Man marks the earth with ruin, but his control stops with the shore”. This is amply demonstrated […]

HEART RACING. Fingers gnawed away. TWITCHING, blurry eyes. Hunger pangs. RACING MIND. Full bladder. SLURRED SPEECH. Dry, burning skin. Extreme FATIGUE. Cramped hands. BENT fingers. Hunched back. Bouts of mania. Bouts of anger. Bouts of disappointment. Bouts of disbelief. Sleepy. Dopey. Grumpy. No, those are not the symptoms […]
At 37,000 feet above ground today, I experienced an odd sense of jubilation. No, no, no. Get your mind out of the gutter. I experienced a profound sense of happiness and pride; one that I did not think a lapsed catholic could feel on such a day. But, […]
I just walked my son to school after watching an episode of Dexter’s Laboratory, a children’s cartoon about a boy genius, who while he is not essentially evil, can be a little unpleasant. In this episode, a crazy monster goat–a Chupacabra–was featured. This was the second time my […]
While I often subscribe to the notion that “it is, what it is”, I do have pet peeves that drive me beyond batty. What is a pet peeve? It is a minor annoyance that an individual identifies as particularly annoying to them, to a greater degree than others […]
