Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

  It’s holiday ramp-up time! And what better way to usher in the season than to share our most dysfunctional family stories?

I turned 44 on Thanksgiving and although I’m so grateful for my family, friends, and health, I couldn’t help but notice my skin looks like turkey flesh. And the line between my brows resembles a gravy boat. And while I’m at it, what happened to my eyebrows? Why are they in my eyeballs?   Oh, […]

You know that zen kinda feeling you get when everything is aligned? That was this – the actors, the crew, the script, the direction all came together into one huge […]
