personal assistant to a very famous singer or movie star

June 2, 2012


It is graduation season and blogs and youtubes advising the happy graduates abound. I just read an article by Lisa Bloom in the Huffington Post called The Most Honest Commencement Speech You Will Never Hear. Her speech basically says that grads’ terrible education and dismal job prospects are the fault of all the grads that […]

Children are our future?

October 19, 2011


I watched CNN’s Western Republican Debates this morning (thank you to @miserablyglorious for posting the full program which I couldn’t find in full at a single mainstream news outlet). Within the first 15 minutes, Rick Santorum made an assumption I think we Americans should carefully reconsider. To criticize Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 tax plan, Santorum pointed […]

More beauty, less stuff

October 17, 2011


Real Simple magazine ran an article a while back (the August issue) about simplifying your beauty routine in the summer. I am a Real Simple subscriber and fan, but am certainly not their target audience.

Fie upon financial instruments!

August 16, 2011


As a Gen X – Gen Y cusp, I have perhaps enough distance from the Gen Y ethos to see it clearly and am enough a part of it to see what is coming. I have a bit of a premonition. Given that Gen Y is growing up amidst mortgage failure and fraud, bank defaults […]

How to prevent corruption: democracy in action

June 28, 2011


After watching all these shows about the economic breakdown, I feel compelled to express my dissent in some way. I want to damn the man, but I don’t know how. I have given a cursory look in to how to withdraw myself from the banking and economic world, but feel stymied. Here is what I […]
