The Night I Met A Famous Jazz Artist

There I was, standing in the lobby of the Hotel Belleclaire in New York City, late on a Saturday night. My friend was checking us into our room while I stood with our luggage making new friends everywhere I could. Something about travel makes me giddy, like too much champagne. I’m not afraid to chat…

2016 Election: Vote for the Hair!

Regardless of your choice of candidates, most people would agree the 2016 Presidential Election is unprecedented. The frontrunners defied all odds. The lack of political experience improved a candidate’s chances. Usually, discriminatory or inflammatory remarks would sink a candidate, but not this race. Young people are making a huge difference. As long as we are…

Alone With The Eagles: Glenn Frey

  Tuesday afternoon, I “Took It Easy” with The Eagles. I was skimming Facebook when I crossed the Rolling Stone tribute to Glenn Frey–20 Essential Songs. I started listening and decided, “I can’t sit here at 4:15 pm staring at a computer and listening to The Eagles.” My family just won’t understand and complain I’m…

NFL Fashion Flop

I would like to comment on the Monday Night Football game on 9/14. When I turned on the TV to see how the 49ers were doing, I thought I had the wrong game. Who are the Vikings playing? Atlanta? Who is that all black team? I’ve been following football since grade school. I can’t say…

A Golden State Warrior Fan Is Born

When I first moved to California, I used to think the Golden State Warriors were some college basketball team out of Sacramento. After all, Sacramento is the capitol of the “golden state.” I played point guard during sophomore year in high school, so you would think I’d know about the Warriors like I know the…

Meeting My Idol: David Sedaris

I met my writing idol David Sedaris. He is the one who inspired me to write funny personal essays. I didn’t know this was a writing genre when I started reading his books. I just thought he was writing about his life. The first book I read back in 2000, “Me Talk Pretty One Day,”…

For my readers, BlogHer is what I call the BIG BLOG in the sky, a website home to just about any type of blog imaginable in one place– a directory and community of mostly women bloggers, founded by three…

Two Hot Blondes at The Moth

I have a new BFF.  She is old enough to be my mom but looks after me more like a grandmother.  She can do things for me and I don’t get mad; I’m honored.  She seems taken with me and I with her.  She likes the same things I do, like MAC lipstick and Brooks…

Pope Francis for US Congress on the radio Friday, October 25th

  It appears Pope Francis has really gotten under my skin.  I wrote a second letter to His Holiness because I just wanted to write him.  I wanted him to know all the “fame and fortune” I have experienced because of him.  My brother, the ex-policeman joked, “He might think you are a stalker.”  I…

Take Time for Old-timers

I’m in a hurry, a lot.  I think most of society is in a hurry too.  I am in good company being in a rush until I cross paths with a leisurely type, then I grow agitated.  It’s always an individual, slow people are never in packs.  Usually it’s someone analyzing each transaction at checkout…
