Something happened to me on a NYC street that hasn’t happened in a while. A bike messenger scuttled up beside me while I was on a payphone and grabbed my butt. I was startled more than anything else at first, then furious, then my anger turned to a feeling of helplessness. There was nothing I […]

I’ll admit it: Each year I join the uncoiffed masses in the gawkfest that has become the Oscars. Or, to be more honest, the two-hour pre-Oscars red carpet ceremony.

Yikes, I can’t believe it. After staying away from the gym for five years I’ve gotten back into working out regularly. And as of right now, I’m glad I did. I’m stretching, crunching, twisting, dangling, and of course lifting. I keep telling myself to go slow, which is tough when you’ve awakened to the sins […]

Besides watching this past Sunday’s installment of Masterpiece Theater’s Jane Austen book series—the second of three for Pride and Prejudice—I also happened to catch the movie version of Bridget Jones’s Diary the night before.
