How to Tell Your Best Friends You’re Getting Divorced

How To Tell Your Best Friends You're Getting Divorced
THIS IS US —  Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) & Rebecca (Mandy Moore) centre with best friends Miguel & Shelly (Photo by: Ron Batzdorff/NBC)

I watched the whole season of the new show This Is Us…I was hooked after episode two. And it takes a lot to get me hooked these days.

One scene struck a chord with me. Jack and Rebecca are getting ready to meet their best friends for a dinner (a standing date) and Rebecca wasn’t feeling festive and wanted to stay home. Jack told her that they had to go because Miguel and Shelly had something they wanted to talk to them about. So, in the middle of their appetizer, when everyone had a drink in hand, Miguel made an announcement. “We’re getting divorced.” Continue reading “How to Tell Your Best Friends You’re Getting Divorced”

Is Your April Enchanted?

enchanted aprilIn 1922, author Elizabeth von Armin’s novel Enchanted April was published. Surprising Elizabeth as much as anyone else, it took the book world by storm. Hailed as a “delicious confection” capable of “working its magic on all”. The story is so good that it was made into a film 70 plus years later!

The plot? Four women want to escape their unhappy marriages, at least for a while. They find themselves in Italy… Continue reading “Is Your April Enchanted?”

Will GIRLS Ever Become Women?

will girls ever become women?It’s Season 5 now and the GIRLS are just as immature and selfish as they were in Season 1. The catch is Season 1 was novel. We wanted to see their kooky adventures and bitchy friendships.

I guess you could call this post a rant. I like to rant once in a while and watching GIRLS last night has given me the opportunity. Continue reading “Will GIRLS Ever Become Women?”

Which TV Mom Are You?

Which tv mom aer you?
Anna Faris and Allison Janney star in Mom

When I was scrolling through my facebook feed a while back I came across this question; Which TV mom are you? I had to laugh. Immediately, I chose Lorelei Gilmore, not because of the young and hot factor. I wish. It’s her attitude and general outlook on life I can relate to. But I have to admit I see a little of myself in many of these beloved characters.

Isn’t that the brilliance of the writers who create these characters? They make our problems seem small or they make us say “Oh, so it isn’t just me…”

Let’s take a look at some of these TV moms and you tell me— which one are you?

You’re Christy from Mom if: You’re struggling to pay the bills, your mother lives with you and she likes to party more than you, you’re divorced, had a brief affair with your boss, you’re in rehab, you’re trying your best to protect your children from your crazy mother and other life disasters.

In Praise Of Older Women, With Younger Men

In Praise of Older Women, With Younger MenIn my mind I’m not the older woman because I’m 22, don’t ya know? However, the calendar begs to differ. Last year I celebrated my 50th spin around the sun and the number still stuns me, just a little. So, any-who, men have been doing it since the dawn of time. They’ve been enjoying the beauty of women much younger than themselves. It’s socially acceptable much to the older woman’s vexation. Continue reading “In Praise Of Older Women, With Younger Men”
