Why I Can't Stop Watching THE HELP

I’m 10, have 5 siblings, an absent mother that yanked us out of our predictable home and away from my father whom I adored. However, she did not. At 28, with 6 kids, all she could understand was how she was robbed of her youth. She did not want to go to church, hang out with the other mothers, sew clothes, cook dinner, shop or clean. She wanted to march in protest lines, stand up for civil rights, hang out in the “hippy” section of Detroit and blare the Rolling Stones. I was the middle child,…See More

Hiking, Lion Poop and Dexter Rangers

  “There really is nothing like a weekend getaway to the mountains. After an early morning of coffee and coffee, I decided to go on one of the many hikes this community boasted. Because I am an overachiever and think I’m a triathlete, despite never having attempted one, I headed to the most difficult trail. It read on the complex map “MOST DIFFICULT.” Well, that was for me. I set out after a little stretching. …See More

Something About Einstein 8_11

 When I was eight-years-old, my young mother handed me a slip of paper with an Einstein quote, “He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned by contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice.”Why she gave this to me and not her other 5 children remains…See More

Hide Your Bunnies!!!!

 I have the greatest kids...flowers, cards, paintings,  all this stuff,  but I know partially this has to do with my allowing (okay I was ambushed) into letting them get a floppy eared rabbit..... which explains the Rube Goldberg contraption their dad has been building in the yard. Bunny: Fudge, is adorable...   …See More

20 More Years of Hard Labor?!?!?!?!

When in doubt, or I should say riding some kind of mini-breakdown, I call my semi-alcoholic mother.  Over the years I have figured out perfect timing before she goes in for the kill--"utter disappointment" is her nickname for me after say, 5 minutes on the phone. But until that point I find a kind of comfort, the imaginary mommy/cookies kind. Not that she was ever that person. Despite my 15 years of wanting to live in a lovely white house on the beach, instead I have lived those years in a…See More

Bitchslapped by Tiger Mom! Damn!

I've by now heard all this silly controversy over Amy Chau's book Tiger Mom, or whatever it's called.  I happened to be at Yale for a book signing so thought I would go meet this woman.  I was wearing one of my typical but awesome outfits; straight tight jeans, a very hard to find, but perfect fitting white T, high, black boots, and a black leather jacket. After the hellos,…See More

7-Year Old Pre-empts Tooth Fairy

I need to start out by saying I had no idea my husband kept a Blair Witch cigar box in a secret desk drawer in his office. In this empty cigar box, where one might find say, actual cigars, or old-school, something like pencils, his has various remnants of the Things. For example, Thing One and Thing Two have now lost a number of baby teeth. (They are 7.) Not only are they in the box, but tucked inside baggies, dated, cataloged and named per which Thing. There was also a baggie of blond hair.…See More

From Breaking Bad to Shucking Corn

My birthdays are never typically. And never planned; or I should say if there was a “said” plan it goes awry so what is the point.To start things off this year, I had the great pleasure of meeting one of the most talented actors working today and who also stars on my favorite show Breaking Bad. Genius level talent- check, charming- check, incredibly kind and gracious-check, handsome-check. I could go on but I might come off looking odd. Oh wait. I forgot, someone told me I crossed that line…See More

Hi from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York. My blog offers light, witty articles on every topic imaginable and was created over a year ago. I truly designed my blog simply for the joy of sharing info. and never expected it to take off the way it has. I also never thought of adding a Followers section until now and because of all the awesome blogs listed here, I'd love to offer my readers the opportunity of connecting with you as well. So please ... come on over and see me some time. Have a great week.
