[photo: peter lindberg for vogue, but if you’re a New Yorker you knew that]   I’m just back in Los Angeles after a week in New York, city. I used to just call it “the city” because that’s the east coast way, but now I have to specify because I am a defector. I spent many of my days in New York City running around …

Why You Need To Make a List of What You Need

what do you need

A few weeks ago my therapist asked me what I feel like I need.   It’s a weird question out of context. Not what do you need for this session? Or what do you need to get through this work week? or what do you need to really feel like your wardrobe is complete? (solid brown leather belt, black cashmere crew neck). Just what do you feel like you need? We talk a …

Re-pubbing this 2012 piece in honor of the start to Fantasy Football season. I am proud to say that I am now a minimally engaged player of this pretend game that has me actually stressed.

Yesterday my Mom flew back to New Jersey after a seven day stay in the Golden State. I say Golden State and not Los Angeles because within the one week that she visited we were in four cities (LA, Ojai, Dana Point, San Diego) and approx 75 neighborhoods, but I blame her for that; she raised me to be a real over achiever. Before I dive into …

As you may have heard, some sexist Olympics newscasters made some incredibly dumb statements about female athletes.   There was this: “And there’s the man responsible for turning his wife into a totally new swimmer…” from NBC’s Dan Hicks about powerhouse Katinka Hosszu and husband/couch Shane Tusup (a challenging personality who has drawn concern for his treatment of Hosszu). This gem from The Chicago Tribune: Unfortunately Twitter doesn’t …

Last night I realized why Sunday Night Sex Talk feels different than most live performances. The answer: earnestness.     Last night was another very special night of Sunday Night Sex Talks. This one was a NO BOYS ALLOWED show (the original incarnation) and, not only did this show fall on my birthday, but I arranged a line-up of ladies that I knew would bring the …

Today is my 33rd birthday and I feel…   This marks the 9th time I’ve written some version of that line. Every year on my birthday since the big 2-5 I’ve woken up and written a blog post. I think about them throughout the week before the day, but there’s something I like about the tradition of starting every new year of my life writing. Last …
