Sing, Sarah Palin, Sing!

Last night, I went to see a neighbor's cabaret show.  You know, one of those things where you rent out the space, hire the band, and then invite all your friends to pay a cover charge, drink the two drink minimum and come to hear you sing.  And all I could think about, the whole time I sat there, Continue Reading

John McCain Should’ve Picked Me!!

Every time I see Sarah Palin, a former beauty queen (runner up), mother of many, not all that experienced governor of a state that has about as many residents as my building.  I cannot believe that John McCain would do this.  I mean, why not pick Elisabeth Hasselbeck?  She's cute.

White House Bunny: Anna Faris for VP

(Not that I think Continue Reading

Yesterday, I posted Continue Reading

Katie Couric Speaks Yiddish

  This week, I learned a few things: 1. There are a lot of very cool Mom blogs out there that I didn't know about. 2. Driving to yet another birthday party at Chelsea Piers may soon cost me yet another eight bucks. 3. The NYC Moms blog is populated with cool, fun, chic, and amazingly Continue Reading
