My Dad Gets Spiritual

May 7, 2014

2

So, I don’t have to tell you that my father is the modern equivalent of Archie Bunker. Except he aggressively uses coupons and loves naked women. So, perhaps you’ll be as surprised as me to discover that he has a new obsession: past lives. While my mother plays Mahjong, my father attends book groups and […]

My Dad’s Obsession With Nicki Minaj’s Big Butt Twerking

April 29, 2014

Due to several unforeseen circumstances, (problems at work, problems with boys, problems with life), I’ve been staying at my parents’ place. But enough about me – there are more pressing things to talk about. My father is an insomniac. He spends an inordinate amount of time on the internet to pass the waking hours. I’ve […]

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 – […]

NYC Adventure and Video – #86

August 14, 2012

For my Dad’s birthday we drive to the city.  These trips to the city are marked by the ritual of eating at a specific Vietnamese restaurant in Chinatown followed by the journey to the Times Square TKTS booth to score cheap tickets to a Broadway show. When it’s my Dad’s birthday he continually says things […]

“THE THERAPIST” – #79

May 5, 2012

52

It was with true resistance that I stepped through the doors of the medical annex.  And it was with mild delight that the man seating there when I walked in made me feel at home instantly.  All this for $29, I thought.  I should try Groupon more often.  “What’s your name?” “Myra.  And you’re…” “James.” […]

“Class is in Session” #46

April 13, 2011

38

I was late to my first community writing class at the Comsewogue Public Library.  As you may have imagined, it was because my father needed to stop at Walmart first for a little swindling action.  Priorities are priorities.  I was lucky he was even doing me the grandiose favor of chauffeuring me to my ‘waste […]

“Moving Back Home” #1

January 29, 2011

I moved my boxes in today.  My white Pit Bull, Vito (named that because he looks like an Italian gangster), has had a confused look on his face since we got here.  Like Dorothy to Toto, I said, “We’re not in New York City anymore.”  Before I could even begin unpacking, my parents called me […]
