I spent 10 years in business journalism, and the gyrations of the stock market are more than enough to bring back the memories, thank you very much. I wouldn’t normally seek out a movie related to the post-housing-bubble foreclosure crisis, but I’m glad MrB and I caught a screening of 99 Homes last week. I […]

I’ve got a 1980s Bain de Soleil ad jingle stuck in my head: “Bain de Soleil, for the Saint Tropez tan …” St. Tropez was the third and final stop on our recent trip to Europe. Our friend Scott was having his 50th-birthday party at the beautiful chateau where we’d celebrated his wedding in 2008. […]

We left London for Paris on Monday, August 3. Paris empties out in August because so many Parisians take a nice long holiday. (Several of our Parisian friends were in New York while we were in their city.) I think everyone who was left in the city was sitting along the Seine that night. Whenever […]

I’m in need of a vacation … from the vacation I just took. MrB and I like to spend our off-time in other cities, especially London and Paris. We wind up dashing from dinners with friends to the theater, from the theater to concerts, from concerts to museums. Last year, we got in some relaxation […]

You’ve got until Sunday, Aug. 2, to catch actor Jim Parsons (aka Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory) in An Act of God at Studio 54. Parsons plays God, who is wrestling with “wrath-management” issues while he’s in the midst of updating the Ten Commandments. The by-the-book angel Gabriel is played by Tim Kazurinsky […]

When I was a kid, I was crazy for Fruit Stripe gum. A photo brings the Fruit Stripe taste back to me instantly. The taste leaves me just as quickly, which makes the whole experience totally realistic because Fruit Stripe gum has only about five seconds of flavor in it. The disappointment of Fruit Stripe […]

People say that every boxing movie has the same plot and maybe that’s true (except for Million Dollar Baby, because the hero normally doesn’t get killed by adrenaline injection), but it doesn’t mean a movie can’t excel within that range. I was blown away by the Southpaw premiere last night, as was everyone around me […]

I’m not going back very far for Throwback Thursday: just to this July 4. I had expected my Independence Day celebrations to be limited to a July 3 outing with friends, when I wore this patriotic outfit, which I’ll post again for the hell of it. But my designing friend Stacy Lomman decided that we […]
