Limitations
A few months ago, a friend invited me to go to the theater with her. I said no thanks since I don't do stuff anymore. Live theater? Too expensive when I might get a migraine and either not go or force myself to go and be miserable. A movie? Even with earplu...

RoboJen
I could be a cute robot, but that would be weird. I'm ready to have my consciousness uploaded into an android. I'm just waiting for technology to catch up.  Yes, it's a horrifying idea, but ponder this - some scientists believe that they'll be able to make ...

Those Fucking Duggars
So, a member of America's Freakiest Family was a child molester when he was a child himself (and may still be for all we know). Color me unsurprised. Since I read about this over a year ago. (The current furor is prompted by In Touch magazine obtaining lega...

A Tale of Two Cookbooks
With luck, my couscous will look like this. Last week, I read this essay by novelist Michael Chabon about a family trip to Morocco. Long story short, they ate so much couscous that they managed to get bored of it. It's been ages since I've eaten couscous, s...

Sitcoms
I had a great idea for a blog post, but it was right before bed, so I didn't write it immediately. Then I remembered it while messing around on Twitter. So I just tweeted about it instead: Eddie Huang is pissed off that the sitcom version of his life doesn'...

How to Make Coffee
This post originally appeared on my now defunct food writing blog, The Famished Freelancer, on 11/21/13. Photo credit: chichacha My mother makes terrible coffee. So she has been told, and thus she shall believe evermore.  I'm not sure I've ever had coffee t...

Letting Go
The latest thing I'm trying to fix the migraines is EFT tapping. Essentially, you tap on certain acupressure points while talking to yourself. The physical tapping tells your lizard brain to calm the fuck down and the talking helps you focus and bring up fe...

Hey, Hey, We're The Boomers
IFC has been showing The Monkees TV series, which just may be the silliest, stupidest, most fun TV show ever. But... I'm having trouble reconciling my love for The Monkees with my annoyance at the entire Baby Boomer generation. Since the media tends to forg...

Knitters are Doing It For Themselves
I was
knitting at a party, keeping my hands busy and out of the potato chips when Sal,
a man I didn’t know well, asked me why I was bothering. If I wanted a sweater,

Why I'd Rather Rent in NYC than Own Anywhere Else
Note: I wrote this several years ago, but the sentiment stands. And considering the rising rents and housing prices in Brooklyn, a lot of people agree with me. After 43 years as a middle-class woman in NYC, I've seen the housing market fluctuate as
