I'd like to blame my complaining on old age, but to be honest, I just like to bitch about things. Lately, there's been a lot of discussion about ageism. From Bill Maher's rant on HBO to the media's reaction to Renee Zellweger's face to the woman who skydived on her...

It's that time of the year again. No, not back to school, pumpkin latte or football season. This is about my hair. My husband likes to say he's slept with a blonde, brunette AND redhead, and they are all me.

I think most women find an...

When I was thinking about becoming a mom, I knew that one thing I did not want to be was like my parents. My dad was a high school teacher and spent all day listening to kids talk. By the time he came home to us, he wanted nothing to...

Just yesterday, I gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. He was 8 lbs 7 oz. 22 inches long and with all his fingers and toes. A beautiful, healthy baby. Holy sh*t, did he blindside me. I never thought I could love anything as I much as I did that...

I have been a standup comedian since the fall of 1980. Back then, it was a novelty to be one. Hell, no one really understood what a standup comic was. And the only women hugely successful at that time were Phyllis Diller &...

Why Are We Still Falling for the Princess Bulls**t?

(10) Comments | Posted October 25, 2013 | 3:50 PM

Once again the media found itself in a feeding frenzy with the pregnancy and subsequent birth of the new little royal Prince George. I remember thinking to myself, isn't it 2013? Shouldn't we be past this? As a woman who grew up in the '70s I find it hard to...

We Are Overdosing on Technology

My smartphone died on me this week, two months after the warranty expired... I don't want to out the company here, but let's just say it rhymes with "Samsung." I was leaving for an important business trip, so I grabbed my old Blackberry (it has 3G!) and begged my carrier...
