I Don’t Care About the Assholes

August 11, 2014

4

I’ve lived a lifetime of trying to escape the negativity of my situation by focusing on the positive. My mother now believes that, too. Not because I rubbed off on her – unfortunately I think I only gave her stress. But, because she learned it on TV. From Dr. Oz to be specific. But I […]

WEB SERIES BACK IN BUSINESS

November 17, 2013

4

In just a few weeks, we’ll be rolling on Episodes 2 and 3 of MY PARENTS ARE CRAZIER THAN YOURS. The love and support from the cast and crew has been amazing. Without the proper budget to do it right and pay everyone their rates, everyone has agreed to help out this time around – […]

…tonight in New York City! The curator of the KATRA FILM SERIES got a hold of the pilot episode for the MY PARENTS ARE CRAZIER THAN YOURS web series and chose to include it in tonight’s big event!  Yours truly, who doesn’t have enough money for a gala premiere outfit, will do her best to […]

“THE BIG SHOT-CALLER”

January 14, 2013

20

My brother hasn’t spoken to me since the summer when my parents found out about this blog.  He accused me of “throwing everyone under the bus.”  These were harsh words coming from someone who I took under my wing since he was born and I was an eleven year old big sister. I recently sent […]

Annoying Cell Phone Users

December 3, 2012

So, WordPress just published my post without the text.  Then, erased all content from it.  So here I am retyping it. My parents are in Florida.  And I am in Queens.  My life is luxurious inside the Dunkin Donuts on Queens Boulevard where I come to escape to my inner world where I am a published writer among […]

Kermit Where Art Thou? #62

August 12, 2011

Last night an old friend of mine from the city invited me to go out dancing with her to a free event, held in a new, wannabe cool hotel on Tenth Avenue right near the tunnel to Jersey.  This friend of mine is one of those people who never asks how you’re really doing, how […]

“VITO THE GUIDO” #19

February 16, 2011

7

Vito refuses to take off his gold chains.  He says he feels naked without them.   Vito could be considered what anthropologists of our day call a “metrosexual.” Sometimes Vito doesn’t even care about the opposite sex.  He derives his self-esteem from looking good.  He often quotes Billy Crystal, “To look good is to feel good.  […]

“About To Get Some Action” #14

February 7, 2011

18

The rendezvous was set.  Sunday night in the city I would meet The Indian – the ex who’s been texting and wanting to see me.  Of course deep down I was hoping this was our second chance; that we would resume the lovely relationship I had so missed.  But, for now, and maybe to protect […]

“4:13 AM” #12

February 5, 2011

11

So, I wake up at 4:13am.  I can’t sleep.  Not because of anxiety this time, but because Vito is taking up the whole bed and snoring louder than an old Cuban man.  I can’t help but wish I were cuddling with a man on this winter night, instead of a 75 pound tank of dog […]
