And it was a time of great vulnerability. But I didn't know it then.
Because at age 20, away at college, and in love with the future, I couldn't see anything but hope and sex and an unwavering commitment to idealism and reverie.
So we danced around reality—he and I—and played family in the rental in Davis, walking my dogs, having coffee and drinking Bailey’s—becoming grown-ups—playing Scrabble while blasting Led Zeppelin 4, and spending lazy Saturdays listening…Continue
I subscribe to Simpleology. When they suggested cold showers in the morning, with the possibility that it would make me less sensitive to cold weather, I decided to try it.
For the first 3 months, I hated my morning cold showers, but winter was coming and I thought a few minutes in the morning would be a minor trade-off for avoiding winter misery. I did breath-of-fire in the shower. I became a master of the quick shower,…Continue
Doritos “make the perfect gateway snack to introduce children to the joys of homosexuality,” writes popular right wing blogger Ed Straker, who suggests as a remedy, persuading "a hot dog maker and a hot dog bun company to do a joint effort promoting man-woman" sex.
We Canucks seldom, if ever, honour our heroes and heroines -- no Davy Crocketts or Jim Bridgers or Alvin Yorks here.
It doesn't matter much to us that we had a prime minister who won the Nobel Peace Prize or doctors and scientists who have achieved international…Continue

WELLESLEY FALLS, Mass. Priscilla Mainwaring, a mother of two teenaged children in this affluent suburb of Boston, has a little surprise in store for her husband Dan, a securities analyst. “I’m going to greet him at the door when he comes home on his 50th birthday wearing nothing but Saran Wrap,” she says. “The Cling Plus kind, not the Premium, which is an extra tough, heavy duty wrap that’s good for storing meats in the freezer.”…Continue

Looks like my dragon wants to eat my daffodils... ("More yellow for my eyeballs!")
This wonderful creature was recently a stump.

More than two and one half decades ago I wrote a collection of essays based on conversations I had with German women in their mid 80s. This week I had another conversation with a German…Continue

I saw the most beautiful kids today. I am sure they were in their twenties. I went for a run today and as it was windy I went to the track of Lawrence High School and jogged by a friendly soccer goalie with a big smile and on to the track where I ran into some frisbee football players. They were the most outgoing friendly beautiful kids EVER. They offered play straight as I got to the field. They threw me the frisbee a couple of times and then offered up the soccer ball and played that…Continue

What started off as a campaign in favor of Bernie, turned out to be a mob of the worst kind.

I'm glad there’s water on the earth.
It wouldn’t be good if of water we had a dearth.
If we didn’t have water, there’d be no beer,
and also no red wine, that much is clear.
(I don’t mean you can see through red wines,
I assume you understood me
even though I said it in lines
that by a loose definition constitute poetry.)…
Remember that movie – The Producers? Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom (played by Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder) try to put on a show that’s bound to fail. They search for the most offensive, preposterous script and, well, here’s what Wiki says:
“After reading many bad plays, the partners find the obvious…Continue
