Aren't You Too Old to Say "My Bad?"

Why does the X & Y generation get to have all the new, fun slanguage? They get to say "totes" and "probs" and "adorbs." But how original is that? Because of their lazy tongues, they shorten or abbreviate a word and then it hits it big time and catches on with the masses....more

I Used To Be Fearless. What Happened?

Texas Voter? My Opinion.

If you care about women, equality, and/or excellence in education, please read on. If you live in Texas and are not registered to vote, shame on you.  If you live anywhere and aren't registered, shame on you.  If you live in Texas (or anywhere) and are registered to vote but don't vote, double shame on you.  If you are registered to vote and are a woman, or have a female relative, consider the following....more

7 Reasons I don’t want to be a teenager. Ever again.

This post first appeared on Mona Andrei’s personal blog, Moxie-Dude.comTwo things happened recently that made me question my near-frequent outbursts of nostalgic longing for my youth:1. I accidentally caught a glimpse of myself in a mirror. (Which made me cringe.) 2. I was given attitude by a pimply-faced “young adult” who’s more than half my age. (Which also made me cringe.

How To Date As Bill Murray

I’m a single, 52 year old woman and I LOVE Bill Murray. Hard.When TIFF announced they were making September 5th Bill Murray Day, I wondered: what took so long? Bill Murray the actor – readily smirkable, always dead pan – and Bill Murray the human – unreachable by agents yet randomly appearing at karaoke parties and ball games – are greater than the sum of his parts. Hello....more
