    What, Me Worry?

    Share

    This is a repost of a favorite. Enjoy! I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but I am brilliant. In fact, I’m practically a genius. I know, I know. Sounds obnoxious, but I read a study to bear this out. The study, from SUNY Downstate Medical Center, finds that worrying may have evolved along with […] Read more…

    I remember the first time I saw someone wearing sky blue nail polish. The year was 1995 and it was Alicia Silverstone who was promoting her movie Clueless on The David Letterman Show. Alicia Silverstone was the girl of the moment and after that appearance, nothing was ever the same. While sky blue and mint […] Read more…

    Tomorrow morning at 8 a.m., I have an appointment with my dermatologist for steroid shots to my scalp. This is my third consecutive month of receiving these shots, which should last for a period of eight months or so. They’re not fun.

    Today is the second day in the past five weeks of this miserable winter that I was able to take my walk outside – and it was such a pleasure to feel the sun on my face, let alone see it. It’s been in hibernation for too long and it’s about time that it got […] Read more…
