laughing curl torture – wet routine (video)

Naturally Curly Wet Curl Hair Tutorial

You asked me for this, so I’m giving it up. I laugh when I watch this because it’s so ridiculous. Oh, the ugly moments we live through in the name of beauty, one of which is captured here, in this video tutorial of my attempt at filming my wet hair routine for curly hair. Products […]

when the store you love does something you hate: MiN New York

Customer Service Nightmare at MiN New York

It was Sunday, a day of rest, but not for my family, no. No, they would be awoken early and dragged past a toll and through a tunnel onto the island of Manhattan, so mama could score some juice. Well, exchange some juice—a perfume I’d purchased only days prior, one I’d opened and sprayed and […]

the anxiety of awaiting

Yesterday I had a thyroid ultrasound, and the technician spent at least twenty minutes going over and over the left side of my neck, lymph nodes I believe. My lip is starting to prickle, and the back of my brain is starting to feel cold just thinking of it. I’m breaking into an anxiety sweat. […]

endship edition: friendship fails

Boca Friendships

One day she corrected me. It was actually she, Darlene, who was the inclusive one, the one who chose to introduce me to her friends, the otherfcukers, and not Demi, as I’d written.

Greek Tragedy Blog

10 years ago today, before marriage or twins, 10 years ago to this exact day, January 20, I made the decision to start a blog, naming it Greek Tragedy on a whim, because really, no one thought of titles or blogs then, and to begin one, you must fill in a form, where you’re asked […]

when kids are home sick

Age 7, twins

When you have a child who complains of a headache, you maybe think they’re trying to get out of doing homework. But when you have a son with a shunt implanted in his brain, you worry about everything. Wait, that’s not fair. I don’t worry, say, if he eats a peanut butter sandwich, which many […]

why your doctor can’t be handsome

I have a stash of blood test forms, handed to me by doctors, upon which I’ve just never quite followed through. Tests for testosterone levels and metabolic workups. I’ve stashed them to the side, knowing that I’d follow through come the new year. Despite my frequent visits to a dermatologist and gynecologist, I haven’t been […]
