It’s that time of the year again, those balmy, mid-summer days when the urge to stretch out in the sun with a good book, a cold drink and several hours with which to enjoy them overtakes me. Fortunately, I’m good at beating urges like that down with a stick. Tomorrow, for example, The Boyfriend and […]

Slow is the new fast

As I’ve reported elsewhere, I had a little run-in with the law last week, an unexpected one. Not that I’m always Dora Do-Bee: after all, my mother was the woman who explained to the Glenview Police that she was really “just making two consecutive left turns, Officer”… and let us say the bad apple didn’t […]

Where do the funny people go?

There are many lovely things about L.A.: the weather; the proximity to desert, mountains and breathtaking coastline; the nutty people who tend to congregate out here. Oh, wait, that one works both ways. One of the other great/not-so-great things about L.A. is the highly transient nature of the place. The good news is there’s a […]

Weekly roundup

Okay, so I completely fell off the face of the earth this week. And I don’t have highly advanced piano skills to show for it and my kitchen floor still looks like the site of a three-week dust-bunny-and-honey humpfest and I sure as hell didn’t have a lot of %#@*(& auditions. Oh, and a shoot […]

Regular Salon columnist Heather Havrilesky gives […]
