May the 4th Be with You

The first movie I was ever able to see by myself was Star Wars. I sat front row with my friend David and loved every second of it. In my opinion, things like Star Wars and American Idol and a book like Harry Potter or even 50 Shades of Grey, bring us together, give […]

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Today is the day that it isn’t sappy to spread some love. I tied ribbons around heart-healthy dark chocolate bars and gave one to everyone in my yoga class this morning. The smiles I received far outweighed the few bucks I spent. Hey, which reminds me, don’t worry if you don’t have a lot […]

American Fun – The Oscars

I went to the Oscars with The Artist (aka the star seller of Manhattan Real Estate…). I thought the night was a better than average year (unless you were Ryan Seacrest), but maybe it’s because I won the Oscar pool and walked away with a pocket full of cash. I thought Billy Crystal’s opening […]

Gossip – For Your Consideration

For Your Consideration!

My friend and neighbor Melissa Leo, the Meryl Streep of the indies, has now stepped into the mainstream and it seems she’s ruffling a few peacock feathers. After stellar performances in 21 Grams and Frozen River, her role in this year’s The Fighter has earned her deserved high praise and numerous […]
