Tell ’em, Nora


Silent suffering

We have all heard stories about airplane passengers locked in ugly, public battles over their personal space.


But do we ever stop to honor fliers who suffer a rapid recliner, space stealing, bounce-in-their-chair adult female passenger for six hours and don’t snap?

We should. Cause I just sat behind her and didn’t pick a fight, even though she gave me every reason.

Did I mention she had two spawn in the row with her?

Constant turbulence. For six hours.

Don’t sit down

During the month of October, we see a lot of scary things on TV, in movies, on ads in every walk of life — all because Halloween is coming.

But with the exception of The Town that Dreaded Sundown, I don’t think I have seen anything as scary as the couch at this hotel.


Actually, the photo makes it look kinda vintage. It’s not.

It’s a HORROR.

Suitable for framing

Look what finally came in tbe mail:


It’s official!

Now, where should I hang it….


I love this.

The kid’s alright

I have watched Seth Meyers on Late Night since he took over the time slot.

His monologue was awkward,  and the producers wisely ditched it a couple of months ago.

But his interview skills put most of his competitors to shame.

Case in point: his recent sitdown with Ellen Page.


Page was on the program to promote her movie Freeheld, the true story of a dying  woman’s fight to leave her pension benefits to her lesbian partner.

Page was focused  and somber; you could see her talking points reflected in her eyes. Seth was respectful of the film’s subject matter, but injected humor at just the right beats.

Jimmy Fallon? Take a look and take a lesson.

This is how you do it.

Hairy situation


All the long beards I have seen of late?

They’ve got nothing on this guy.

And he’s from way back when. (And spends his time now in a steakhouse…where real men go to die).
