An Open Letter to Jon Hamm On His Recent Break Up

An Open Letter to Jon Hamm On His Recent Break Up 9/9/15 Oooh, ooh, ooh, Pick me, pick ME! Jon, I’m sorry to hear about your recent upcoupling. I’m sure you have an army of size 2 starlets throwing themselves at you. But before you dive into that pool of doe-eyed impressionable Pilates instructors I’d […]


I’m in Macy’s 4 minutes into a negotiation with my nine year old son about his first day of school outfit. His current offer is $30 and two doughnuts to wear a bright new yellow Ralph Lauren shirt and jeans. NO, NOT KHAKIS, only jeans. I look over at the poster featuring a pre-pubescent gender […]
