Last May, our Girl Scout troop went camping for the first time as a troop. Actually, we went glamping, staying in a troop house, complete with an indoor fireplace, electricity, and a kitchen. This time, though, we’re camping in tents. No electricity, no indoor kitchen, no sink or oven. You wash all the pots, pans, […]

I‘m obsessed with films, all of them. Even the bad ones. From them, I learn bad acting, clumsy storytelling, or poor casting. Mainly, I enjoy deconstructing the story. So, I often find myself watching a never ending stream of trailers, mostly because I enjoy the range of feelings they evoke. Off the 7 Emmy wins […]

the emmy’s are killing me

September 20, 2015



All decked out in my pajamas and pearls, yet I nearly skipped the Emmy awards this year because I’m obsessed with watching the Netflix Original Series The Killing. Sometimes I get into a TV-rut, and I’m hungry for some new meat. Phil said The Killing was killing him with how boring it was in the […]

straight up advice

“What’s the best advice you were ever given?” was the short-film assignment for the 2015 class of Team Oscar. I was totally stumped when I asked the question of myself. I couldn’t think of anything. Sure, I’m fine with doling out the advice, but to pick the best? While I have lists of what I’ve […]

Magic Camp at Bryn Mawr College

I‘m a huge believer in separation between church and state. That is, I believe the pious love of camp shouldn’t touch your life at the stately institution of school. Camp friends should be separate from your school friends. A random handful of kids who happen to attend your school, sure, it’s inevitable I guess. Parents […]

2015 Best Films

While, yes, without apology, I’m undeniably waiting for the return of The Bachelorette on May 18, I’m also currently enjoying a new, sure to be favorite, show titled, “HAPPYish” on Showtime. Despite its mixed reviews, I feel as if this balls-out mama (Katherine Hahn) is my outspoken soul sister. We’ll see. Movies I’m looking forward […]

A Five Star Life

When my sister Lea was four-years-old she attended a wedding of our cousin and flashed the priest her vagina. Not once. It was vagina party time. Flowery dress, white¬†eyelet socks, shiny black dress shoes, hair in ribbons, and there it was, on full display, as my terribly bored sister played with the hem of her […]
