You Can’t Fire Me Because I Quit

September 29, 2010


My shrink is breaking up with me. It stings. I’ve had four shrinks in the last ten years.  I retained the first, an older woman named Mrs. Smith, when my mother divorced my stepfather and I was forced to realize that if she thought he was a dick, too, then all our suffering had been […]

I spent the weekend in the Pennsylvania countryside, toasting the wedding of a boy whose diapers I clearly remember changing.

One fascinating facet of my personality that I haven’t discussed here is that I am something of a book fanatic.  When I was a kid I never went anywhere without a book, to the point that when I got my driver’s license I did not know the way to my best friend’s house because I […]

Your Guide to Online Dating Part 2: Sights on Sites

September 6, 2010


See Part 1. Decoding the Email Address The bad thing about online dating is that it has to begin online, and the first thing you learn is that there are a million ways to conceal things in this medium.  The second thing is that men are liars.  (Maybe women are, too; I don’t date them…no, […]
