I'd Much Rather Be a Pretty Woman Than a Nice One

I want to be The Comeback Kid, or at the very least, Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. Not a "comeback kid" in the sense that I make some sensational recovery after a fall from grace, but as someone who always has the perfect rejoinder to any jab sent my way. At my worst, I simply look like a dummy who has lost her ventriloquist, mouth agape, wordless, waiting for someone to feed me a line. ...more

I Hope A Board Game Is Under Every Christmas Tree (As Long As It Isn't Cards Against Humanity)

In our household, instead of two Turtle Doves and Three French Hens, we had Book Night and Game Night on the second and third nights of Hanukkah. This was when my kids were younger and I could still ply them with underwear and pajamas without hearing too many groans, and the promise of crispy, oil-soaked latkes was enough to lure them away from their recently acquired video games. ...more
