What I Have Written Lately

Cupcakes are not over, but the media thinks so. I wrote it about on Cupcakes Take The Cake. If Google says cupcakes are still trending, then they are. That potato salad guy’s Kickstarter is stupid and he will pay a lot in taxes. I got a little personal on BlogHer.

“Who died and made you Khalessi?” is something I saw as a lede to an article that I didn’t read, but I can’t wait to use. I had been meaning to write a little something before the season finale of “Game of Thrones”, but life happens and so this post is two weeks late. I [...]

Chicks And Giggles

On May 18th, Chicks and Giggles had a tenth anniversary show. It was an excellent reunion. It was lovely to see comedians and old friends. We took a group photo that included past performers.
