Old Dreamers

18th April 2014 | 0 Comments

This is a note to myself and others like me: underachievers, those with gifts who believe they haven’t fulfilled their potential, those who have been writing a book, play, or dissertation, making a movie, recording a CD, going to a comedy open mic, opening a restaurant, going back to school and haven’t done it yet.

The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl – It’s On!

12th November 2013 | 2 Comments

I am back at it. I have had so many false starts that I refrained from posting about my latest effort to lose weight. But it’s been several weeks now and after losing 16 pounds I am formally declaring: IT’S ON! I am obese. I am a fat ass bitch and I’m sick of it. [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl – Oops.

4th June 2013 | 0 Comments

Oops. My bad. On March 22 I posted about my plans to get into shape for my NYC club debut at City Winery NY on July 2.  I must be accountable, even if it is to cyberspace.  And now it’s time to check in.   I worked at it.   Lost quite a few pounds [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl 2013

22nd March 2013 | 0 Comments

My eating, the Mirror, the scale, video of me performing (Egads!) There is no denying it. I have become a fat bitch again. Don’t despair folks. We obese people can say these things about ourselves. And no matter how many of my dear ones smack my hand or pound the table as they offer their [...]


You Better Carry That Weight

22nd March 2012 | 1 Comment

Weird day today. A friend, a good friend who I’ve known for decades expressed “worry” that I might drop dead from being fat. Actually she said: “I worry about you” and then proceeded to tell me that another friend wanted to do an “intervention” which I later found out was not true. It was handled [...]


Been Meaning to Write but Inexplicably Unable to Do So…

4th January 2012 | 0 Comments

It’s been so damn long since I blogged on here that I almost forgot how to use the dang software! Good news: I was asked again to join the cast of Tony Fitzpatrick’s final installment of the trilogy of his one man shows at Steppenwolfe Garage. The 2011 show “Stations Lost” got rave reviews and [...]


The Amazing Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Back at it.

4th February 2011 | 2 Comments

Missing In Action. That’s what they’ll say about me at the gym. I have fallen off the wagon. Oops! I wish I could blame it on “The Knee Chronicles” but I hopped off the ole’ girl awhile before that. However, I am not discouraged. I figure as long as I am still living, I can [...]


The Knee Chronicles: Wait & See & T.C.O.B.

31st January 2011 | 3 Comments

I had an “Arthritis Flare.” It was my very first and it was awful, horrible, debilitating and sudden, like BAM! I have been dealing with knee pain for awhile now but nothing like this. This experience taught me a lot. Shit happens to the body and I can neither control it, nor will it away. [...]


The Knee Chronicles: Thoughts In the Waiting Room

25th January 2011 | 4 Comments

It’s morning and I am sitting in the doctor’s waiting room. The doctor’s office is located in an area hospital. It’s not posh or fancy in any way. This comforts me for some reason. There are people of color here, working people – quite unlike the last time I was in an Ortho clinic (four [...]


The Knee Chronicles: The Day the Earth Stood Still On One Leg, Pt. 2

23rd January 2011 | 4 Comments

I decided to go to my friend’s birthday celebration. It is a relatively low key night in the realm of true party girlness. The plan is to attend a campy play at a nightclub’s cabaret room which is located minutes from my house. One quick cab ride away. I hobble with my cane to the [...]
