It's time to end this blog as you've known it. It's no secret that the last two years my inspiration dwindled. The problem with writing such a deeply personal blog is that at some point you run out of material. Especially when your material is all about the failures in your life -- be it … Continue reading This isn’t goodbye
There are some things one can only achieve by a deliberate leap in the opposite direction.” — Franz Kafka. I suppose it's not a good sign for a blog that strives to be funny that I am quoting Kafka. I promise I won't get all weird and talk about bugs. But hey, I'm back, bitches! … Continue reading Starting over…again
“In the process of looking for comedy, you have to be deeply honest. And in doing that, you’ll find out here’s the other side. You’ll be looking under the rock occasionally for the laughter.” – Robin Williams I never set out to be a writer. I do recall a time in 4th grade where I … Continue reading Being funny isn’t always fun
I need to apologize to all 12 of my loyal readers for my absence of late. After three years of on-and-off writing and 17 pounds of stress eating, I finally was inspired to finish my first screenplay. Unfortunately that means that my limited brain cells the wine has not killed off could not multi-task and … Continue reading An explanation for my absence
It’s been real, 2015. Far too real. I prefer my years to be airbrushed and cast in soft lighting. Another year has rolled by without a romantic relationship. I’m still holding true to my checklist—a David Beckham lookalike who can serenade me like Hugh Jackman and has Jon Stewart’s sense of humor. I see no … Continue reading Bring it on, 2016!

I don’t mix well with crowds. I suck at making small talk. I prefer to linger by … Continue reading Who doesn’t love A Few Good Men?
The Mouth of Truth (La Bocca della Verità) resides in the portico of the basilica of Santa Maria in Cosmedin in Rome. As with most people, I first learned of this sculpture from the movie “Roman Holiday” starring Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn. A young Gregory Peck fed into my attraction for freakishly tall, dark … Continue reading The Mouth of Truth
Allow me to introduce myself. I am Princess Snark, the hot, mysterious goddess who manifests when strangers find themselves locked in a verbal battle and can’t find the proper insult to toss out for the win. By day I am a lowly paralegal, capable of more, but really kind of too lazy for that. I … Continue reading Introducing my superhero alter ego
I have a muse! I never even knew he existed until today. His name is Momus, the Greek god of satire. (Not to be confused with Momus the Scottish singer with an eyepatch who looks just weird enough that he must have competed in the Eurovision song contest.) @OfficialMomus, as I’m sure his Twitter handle … Continue reading Meet my Muse
I write because I am 41 years old and want a career that I am passionate about, and I’m too old to be a Hooters girl. I write to say all the things I have pushed down and bottled up because I haven’t had the courage or opportunity to say them out loud in the … Continue reading Why I Write
