As I mentioned the other day, I'll be doing weekly recaps of "Ted Lasso," the Apple TV show with which I am obsessed. Let's start with a recap of all of the first season, shall we? At the end of Season 1, if you'll recall (since you've definitely watched it, and if you haven't-buddy- quit your job real quick, leave your family, and when you're done, come back here and we'll go on), Nathan Shelley had been promoted to "Coach Nate," meaning that his choice delivery of killer on
Zero stabs. This show does not make me want to stab my eyeballs out at all, from a feminist perspective. Ok, so if you know me personally, I've probably already convinced you to try the Apple TV show, "Ted Lasso," and if you've tried it, you've later messaged me that ohmygod you loved it thanks so much for improving your life. Your'e welcome! If you're one of those who has already heard my forty-seven minute monologue about why it's the greatest show ever and you need to watc
I fancy myself a very open-minded and open-hearted person, but my husband would tell you that, although my arms are wide and welcoming, each idea or person who enters only gets a narrow sliver of my tolerance. Recently he said something like, "You're one of the most empathetic, kind people I know...but you're not very nice." And so I punched him in the throat. The end.
Actually, I laughed, because I felt busted. He knows me pretty well. Dammit. I guess after twenty-five yea
These two beloved comic actors have now been married upon one another for twenty years and wrote a book about it. I'm listening to the Audible version, and they read it and riff off each other and it's just delightful. Nick has written several other humor essay-type books and has honed the art of story-telling. Megan has a lot of great stories to tell, as she's been in the business for always. They make each other laugh while making us laugh, and it's sweet and fun. He's eve
*Contains spoilers about who gets eaten and who wears short shorts and who dies violently while wearing short shorts Let's start at the end of the series and work our way back to the front, shall we? The first movie always gets all the press and the others probably get jealous. Did you even know they made 4 (four) Jaws movies? I hadn't until we started down this (Peacock TV) streaming train with my very motivated ten year-old, who is all about movie franchises. Also, he's a l
I've been in a bit of a vulnerability hangover since last week when I officially launched this (mostly finished) writing website. What if it's not professional enough? What if it's TOO professional and says I'm something that maybe I'm not. Or not...yet?
THEN there's the whole asking for money-for-writing part of it. I'm asking for subscriptions and putting some of my more precious words behind a (oh God) pay wall. I'm throwing in a bunch of other perks, too: untrustworthy
We're back from our travels. I'm sitting in bed, the kids are rotting in front of the TV, Robb is working at his home office set-up in the garage. We're moving pretty slowly these first few days back from traveling for almost a month straight- first driving the eleven hours to and fro Oregon, then taking seven planes and staying in six different places in Michigan and Ohio.
It's not just the jet lag, it's also the emotional weight that's flattened us. When we left our home
