Holy F*** Our First Hurricane!

Holy F*** Our First Hurricane!

Having never been through a hurricane, it’s hard to know what to do. Other than panic, of course. According to the emergency map issued by NYC, we live in ZONE B. I’m not sure what that means – will the storm surge flood our first floor apartment? No way, that would be crazy! I’m mean, it’s not like we live in ZONE A. Those suckers are screwed. Our...

Morning beverage ritual of death

Morning beverage ritual of death

About once a week I say, “I should switch to green tea.” I have been led to believe that green tea will prolong my life indefinitely, prevent cancer and fortify my soul. But I love coffee. Peter drinks yerba mate. He also drinks green tea. Apparently, he loves the earth so much, he wants his hot beverages to taste like it. Peter will live forever. I swirl my coffee...

Should we move in together?

Should we move in together?

I was chatting this past weekend with a couple of lovely lady-feminists who were thinking about moving in with their boyfriends.  Tough decision.  Does love conquer all?  Not necessarily. I’ve decided to create a list of questions everyone should ask themselves before their lease is broken. 1.  Do you believe in the institution of marriage? This is not an easy question to...

“Real, nasty green-eyed jealousy…”

Why is my wife so damn crazy? This psychodrama from 1957 has the answer.  Keep in mind that this was produced by an educational publisher.  Educational. Key points: Women should doubt themselves every step of the way. Women should not audition for plays. Men had to work hard to figure out how to screw caps on tubes without metal. Running time is 15 minutes so grab a snack, sit back...

How do you spend your free time?

Does anyone else have this issue?  I often define myself by what I don’t do but someday intend to do versus what I actually do (which is nothing). Example #1: Yoga One of these days, I am going to become a dedicated and enthusiastic yoga student.  I regularly check class schedules at the gym and spend time reading about the miraculous health benefits of yoga online.  When I...

Consider this your holiday card…

Consider this your holiday card…

And so concludes another year sans Holiday greetings from Cathleen and Peter.  The first and last time we managed to get out seasonal well wishes was the Christmas after our wedding.  It happened for two reasons: 1.  We still had a fresh address list from our wedding extravaganza 2.  I was trying to impress Peter’s family I married into an aggressive card writing family. ...
