What Defines a Runner?

I just recently laid to rest my trail runners. Unfortunately, the smell, the worn-out hole, and missing sole was enough to put them to pasture. They were a good shoe and sturdy companion throughout this winter. I can say with sadness that they will be dearly missed. ...more

Grey's Anatomy...The #*@$%^ Musical?!

Look.  I've been a pretty loyal Grey's Anatomy fan since the beginning.   And I'm the first to admit that it's not the show it was in those early days of Meredith and Derek rolling around on the living room floor.  But if Grey and Co. were still on the proper side of the shark pond?   I think it's maybe safe to say that they went ahead and took that epic leap. I'm saying in no uncertain terms here the show has jumped the shark. ...more

I agree with you 100%!!! I was so disappointed that they took such a serious story line, and ... more

Joining the Divorce Club

For those of us who have been divorced, indubitably at one time or another, we turn the magnifying glass on ourselves and question our judgment. We scrutinize every move, every red flag missed, every sign we ignored. I [thought I] wanted something, I tried it, I gave it my best, and it didn’t work out [according to original plan]. It doesn’t really matter the reason – I thought “forever and always” and instead I got “until now.” ...more

New TV Shows: Does Harry's Law Do Justice to Kathy Bates?

It's not surprising that her new television show, Harry's Law, just might be a winner. Producer/writer David E. Kelley is serving up the type of savvy scripts that rocked Ally McBeal, Boston Legal and L.A. Law, and tailoring them to Kathy Bates' cutting delivery and distinctive power. He has written a lead character, Harriet Korn, who was a corporate attorney until a series of mishaps lead her to a new practice in a rundown neighborhood. The result, in Kathy Bates' hands, is an intriguing dramedy that feels both familiar and progressive. ...more

I love Kathy Bates, and will be watching the premiere tonight. Hope it lives up to my expectations! more

Infertility Can Be So Lonely

Sometimes -- pretty often -- this is how I feel; like no one's knocked on my door (or called, or emailed) for more than a thousand years. Isolated, segregated and ignored because of infertility. ...more

I suffered from Secondary infertility, which is not the same pain that you feel, but a strong ... more

What are you reading? First reads of 2011

My personal reading tally was a bit disappointing in 2010 so I have high hopes for a better reading year in 2011. I think I'm off to a good start. I kicked off the year by diving into my own book collection and reading Anne De Courcy's 1939: The Last Season. It's about the last season for debuntantes before WWII. De Courcy does an excellent job of writing about debs. I've also ready her Debs at War and I'm kind of tempted to reread it now.
