Thanks, Olympics

Dear Olympics, Now that our relationship is coming to an end, I just want to thank you. I will admit that things got off to a rocky start between us. All I really knew about you at first was that you were going to pre-empt a lot of my favorite shows (30 Rock, Mercy, etc), […]

Are you there God? Margaret’s Not OK for Tweens

Playboy! Kissing! Emerging sexuality! Would you buy a book for your eleven old you thought was about these things? Probably not. But if parents go to Judy Blume’s newly updated Barnes and Noble page for Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret, that’s exactly what they’re going to find out that the book has in […]

And obviously, we’ve seen on Intervention what […]

Birthday Thanks

Thanks to everyone who emailed, Tweeted, and sent me birthday greetings today! You’re all the best! Seriously, that was so sweet of you! I was going to celebrate by going see Avatar because I’m the only person in the ENTIRE WORLD who hasn’t seen it yet and I feel like I’ve fallen behind on my […]
