When else has this ever happened, that two young actresses (or whatever those ladies are) were both on the children’s bestseller list at the same […]

Internet, I Can’t Quit You

I seriously tried to quit the Internet this past weekend because there was just too much news. I couldn’t take it! However, as you can see, I’m back. Internet, you’ve won. I can’t quit you. But this doesn’t mean I like you as much as I used to. You’re like that boyfriend who cats around […]

Oh, Mo!

Poor Mo Rocca! He’s having a lot of trouble with the tiara he’s making for my auction to raise money for the New York Public Library’s teen programs, as he describes in his blog here. He even made a video about it! I’m very proud of Mo. I know a lot of us (I’m not […]
