My autistic daughter turned daughter-with-autism turned back to autistic daughter will be 24 this year. She lives in her own apartment that is monitored by staff 24 hours a day. She does get out and about but she should be at some sort of structured workshop everyday. But she has been unable to find a […]Read more "Autism Acceptance Month"
You do not need to own a gun to be an American. I know that it seems like real Americans kill things all the time, get really pissed off about paying taxes and gay illegals taking all of our jobs but most Americans I know aren’t shooting people (even the Americans I know who believe […]Read more "See ya there, kids."
Wealthy, Jewish, Clevelander, dyslexic, Democrat are all things that I normally like in succession especially to describe an actual person, replace anyone of those attributes with something else and I have questions. Gary Cohn, Director of the US National Economic Council should be, based on the above mentioned qualifiers, a good guy. But somewhere along […]Read more "Gary Cohn, You’re Bumming Me Out."
I turned 50 last week. I wanted to equally forget about the milestone and commemorate it appropriately so I assembled a small army of 6 other women and went to New Orleans. I figured that this city had enough distractions for an aging lady and I needed a place where I could bring a drink […]Read more "The Old Bag in The Big Sleazy"
This is not a drill, people. Tonight I went out and bought light up balloons and extra strong base makeup and made last minute reservations for my birthday trip. I’ve rented an apartment on Frenchman St in New Orleans and I am finally visiting the city that 20 year old me was sure would be […]Read more "So I’m About to Turn 50"

Well, fuck […]Read more "It’s not me, It’s Your Huge Penis."
I give people such unmitigated shit on Facebook, it’s really unnecessary but I can’t let this one go. One of my friends posted this Sappy Ass Story about an old woman buying a stack of textbooks for a stranger reminding the youth to “be kind”. That was her lesson to the youth with her $400.00 textbook purchase. […]Read more "Money isn’t Kindness"
I have had no less than four episodes of near head explosion in the past 48 hours and three of those were over the contemptible nonsense I saw from some of my Appalachian pals over the Government shutdown. There were two distinct and equally ignorant threads 1) the “sorry guys no paychecks (for us military […]Read more "White People Ruin Everything."
I didn’t hear Oprah’s speech because I gave up watching award shows when I realized how truly disgusting they are. Just entertain me, Hollywood monkeys. Award yourselves if you must but it’s your job to make great works of art. I try to imagine a Golden Globes for people who work everyday….how much hard eye […]Read more "The Golden Globes are Horseshit and LA Needs to Vote."
I had a few cocktails with a hometown friend over the holiday. We met in a dark fancy bar as respite from family obligations and caught up a bit. This past year has been horrible and my depression has been unusually oppressive lately so it was a relief to see someone who knows me well. […]Read more "No Place for Happiness"
