-----



As I am slightly behind the curve here (my news cycle is blessedly far from 24-hours,) I still am reflecting on the fortieth anniversary of Sesame Street. This show hit the air only a few weeks after my third birthday, the year that my memories… Continue

My Personal Studio Audience

My Personal Studio Audience

by Pam Victor



Wouldn’t it be fun to have a studio audience follow you where ever you go? I’m thinking about an Oprah-styled audience here. Very supportive. Very pro-you. I haven’t watched Oprah in years, but one of the parts about her show that always intrigued me was her ability to say to her audience, “Isn’t that right, folks?!” And the studio audience would cheer enthusiastically in eager reply. Wouldn’t it be so satisfying to have that kind of… Continue

The Tale of the Dung Beetle

The Tale of the Dung Beetle

By Pamela Victor



My daughter Sierra, her friend Hope (oh! how this name foreshadows our tale!) and I were walking the dog early one summer morn. The weather was, for once, lovely. Not too hot. Not too cool. Not too buggy even. The girls brought a carrot each, a treat for our neighbor's fine equine companions. Birds chirped. Wind whispered. Girls giggled. All was well in our little piece of the world.



My little nature girl, Sierra, cried out… Continue

Facebook Rehab 6: The Epilogue by "Samantha Greene"

Facebook Rehab 6: The Epilogue

By “Samantha Greene”







Michael Corleone and I have something in common besides a love for Diane Keaton: “Just when I thought I was out….they pull me back in.” Facebook is my Mafia godfather, forcing me to prostrate myself and kiss his ring daily in the form of status updates and socializing with people tens and a hundreds and thousands of miles away.



I made it all of twelve hours off Facebook. To my chagrin and secret pleasure,… Continue

Facebook Rehab 5: The Group Therapy App by "Samantha Greene"

Facebook Rehab 5: The Group Therapy App

By “Samantha Greene”



Clearly, I hit a bump in the road last night, and it bounced me right off the wagon and flat on my ass. It was more than just a slip - I was glued to Facebook until the wee hours of the night. Besides posting umpteen Status Updates, I took the following quizzes: What is Your NPR Personality? The Kitchen Gadget Quiz, What Kind of Mask Do You Wear?, When Will You Die? (but I didn’t look at the answer because I got… Continue

Facebook Rehab 4: Strike of the Enabler by "Samantha Greene"

Facebook Rehab 4: Strike of The Enabler

By “Samantha Greene”



It’s my usual time to Facebook. I’m wearing my favorite FB sweats, sitting in my comfortable chair, got the incense and a glass of red by the computer. In short, I’m in full frontal Facebook mode. But I’ve absolutely squandered my allotted 15 minutes earlier today, so I’m not supposed to log on. Grrrrrr!!!!



Earlier this evening, my friend Farrah asked me today why I’m doing this Facebook detox, so I gave her… Continue

My First Session with Dr. Facebook

My First Session with Dr. Facebook

by Pam Victor



I’m just going to come right out and put it on the table here. I suffer from C.A.P.S. (Cyber Addictive Personality Syndrome,) and I am seeking help for my Facebook addiction. This confession is the first step of my therapy with Dr. Facebook.



Ironically, I heard about Dr. Facebook online. Typically, I try to ignore those insulting advertisements on the right side of my screen. Wondering if the sinewy grasp of Facebook’s… Continue

The Hilarious Book I Did Not Write

The Hilarious Book I Did Not Write

by Pam Victor



Catherine Newman wrote the book that I should have written, and I’m trying not to hate her for it. “Waiting for Birdy” is the hilariously neurotic tale of the year she was pregnant with her second child. I’ve passed around the book to every woman I know, saying “If you’re not laughing out loud by the second page, then just put it down,” under my breath adding, “and get a sense of humor.” This author represents Everymother, and… Continue

Nobody Sings About My Life on the Good Stations

Nobody Sings About My Life on the Good Stations



by Pamela Victor



For some reason I’ve been drawn even more to music lately, and I’ve been listening carefully to lyrics. I noticed that the vast majority of songs are about – yes, you knew this already – love and loss. It’s all so heartfelt and tragic. Extreme. Exciting. Emotional. Full of nerves and sexuality and rapidly beating hearts. Longing looks. Regret. Sadness and heartbreak.



This morning, I was listening… Continue
