How To Wrap a Present

Another Yuletide Adventure First, lay out all the gifts and cue up a good Christmas or Hanukkah movie. Gather snacks, scissors and wrapping paper. Look everywhere for the tape. Why is there no tape?

What Exactly Are We Celebrating?

The holidays always make me feel like a hypocrite. Probably because I am one. I don’t like to agree with sanctimonious religious people (they are the literal worst), but they are correct that I probably shouldn’t be celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah, seeing as I don’t believe in God. And here I am, celebrating both. HowContinue reading “What Exactly Are We Celebrating?”

The Book I’m Currently Obsessed With

How To Have A Killer Halloween

With the world on hold due to pandemic/apocalypse reasons, you might think there’s no way to have a great Halloween.

Hocus Pocus, Fairy Tales and The Wind in the Willows

There are three movies I need to watch every Halloween season. Hocus Pocus, Dracula Dead & Loving It, and to bridge the gap between Halloween and Christmas, The Nightmare Before Christmas. Hocus Pocus is an obvious choice.

The Boring One At The Party

I have a confession. I think I might be the most boring person at the party. My suspicions started a few years ago, when I found myself watching a group of drunken revelers share the most heated and excited game of Jackass I’ve ever seen, while I sat quietly on the couch, reading the dictionary.Continue reading “The Boring One At The Party”
