Tweet The title of this post refers to Mad Men and sandals, not Mad Men and the “gladiators in suits” populating Scandal. I admit that I have only seen one episode of Scandal, but I’ll have time to catch up now that MrB and I have gotten 72 episodes of Mad Men out of the […]

Tweet Recently, I messed up my iPod and ended up with all my music in the cloud instead of on the device. (I don’t listen to music on my phone because I need the phone battery to send 50 billion emails a day and to play the Kardashian Hollywood game. We all have our priorities.) […]

Tweet At the beginning of this month, I went to my friend Shawn Love’s one-woman play, My Private Revolution. Shawn describes her work as “a rhythmical and powerful journey addressing social issues and celebrating the power of individual choice. It’s about overcoming abuse and finding healing and forgiveness. A thought-provoking, transformational and heart-wrenching play filled […]
