My Big Fat Greek Life

I apologize.  I've been unfaithful.  I fully submerged myself in the 4th of July and my family reunion, making the executive decision that those things were way more important than my three cents on living alone and dating.  I have it on pretty good authority no one lost any sleep over it, so I pray...

Collision

Minus the times my brothers were active in the military my family has always been together for Christmas.  It's my favorite time of year.  These are my people, my tribe, my kin.  Who else is going to finish my mom's tequila and facetime every single person in my phone?  It's truly the best...for about 4...

Gobble, Gobble

A few weeks ago I was forced to endure an hour long Uber ride to the sound of Christmas tunes.  I repeat, AN HOUR.  Of all the Ubers in Los Angeles, of course I would end up in the one who is all too excited to get his joy to the world on.  Many of... Continue Reading →

Home sweet Home

Home sweet home.  Home is such a vague term and yet it holds such a significant place in our hearts.  While it technically means the place where a person lives, it is so much more than that.  Home can be where you grew up, where your parents live, where you've raised your own family, where...

Birthrights & Braids

I've developed a serious obsession with the Middle Ages.  This goes beyond Shakespeare, which we all know holds an atrium in my heart.  Maybe it's because I'm having serious Game of Thrones withdrawals or maybe it's because I'm doing whatever I can do to avoid the fact that chokers and platform shoes are trying to...

They’re My Idiots

I am very fortunate in that my family is very close.  We were each other's first friends...and first enemies.  We have truly seen each other through it all:  the good, the bad, the ugly.  For the record, you don't know ugly until you see the butt-cut I rocked in the early 90s.  Yikes.  We keep...

Amazing Grace

Somehow, Americans-and by Americans, I mean European originating people who took over a land mass already inhabited by natives, turned stealing into a holiday called Thanksgiving. We all sit at tables covered in the usual suspects to commemorate the day our ancestors decided to screw over the Indians and make a bunch of false promises. Please... Continue Reading →

The Unofficial Superhero

Anytime any of my girlfriends have told me they are pregnant, there's always a split second of hesitance before my  reaction because two thoughts cross my mind.  The first one is OH MY GOODNESS, YOU'VE DECIDED TO MAKE A TINY HUMAN AND THIS IS SO EXCITING!!!!!  The second one is HOLY S#%* YOU'RE SOMEBODY'S MOM...

I’m Old(er)

I find myself wishing I had the body I had 5 years ago.  Then I remember at that age, I was wishing for the body 5 years before that.  Sometimes I walk into rooms and forget why.  I'm so stubborn I'll stay there until I figure out why and now valuable chunks of my life... Continue Reading →
