Virtual Reality

As the opening scene of the original “Star Wars” movie unfolded on our TV screen Saturday night – the mammoth underbelly of the Imperial Star Destroyer slowly crawling into view – I turned to my 12yo son and said, “Dude, you don’t even know how amazing this was back in the day.” That is, I wouldRead more…

In Which We’ve Lost Our Minds

“Bad news, sister,” my college friend said to me over breakfast a few weeks ago when I went out to spend a weekend at her place on Long Island. “All that Zzzquil could be making us crazy.” “Oh great,” I thought, “Let’s add this to the ever-growing list of things that keep me up at night.”Read more…

Doors Open. Doors Close.

File this one under: “Sometimes when one door closes, another one opens.” Or: “Doors open and close all the time.” It’s been strange here, this first full week of no other ladies living in my house. There’s been no one for me to tell that I’m fat (that terrible female pastime in which I oftenRead more…
