Remember

Netflix sent me a box of #StreamTeam goodies to throw an Ever After High viewing party this month, and it has been on my to-do list all month. It didn’t happen, but here’s what did: Abigail opened the box, and Lucas made a verb out of it. “It’s an unboxing, Mama.” Yup, that’s one too […]

I just had a mini-moment. I won’t call it an epiphany because I don’t know that I’ll remember the moment years from now, with remarkable accuracy—as you’re able to do with true epiphanies—able to tell you what I was wearing (Phil’s cableknit cashmere sweater, waffle weave sweatpants, horn-rimmed glasses), or if I was on my […]

Still Alice Stills

Of the 87th Academy Award Nominations for the 2015 Oscars, these are the films I’ve watched so far, shown in order of preference—along with my collaborative filtering film suggestions. Collaborative filtering is that jazzy bit where technology offers up ever so helpful suggestions based on your preferences. “If you liked this film, you might also […]

I’m quite possibly the most twisted food parent to ever enter the dining ring with a minor. In one corner, weighing in at, never mind, hovers a pajama-clad mama, one foot on the refrigerator door for balance, as she lunges in to offer her opponent a twist of fate, straight off her finger. That’s right, […]

golden globes 2015

Thank you to the always beautiful J.Lo. This year, we thank her stylist, for putting the “boob” in “boob tube.” It looks like a biting pinch shadow. Like an underwire, misplaced.
