…Look Back

A long time ago, but also not so long ago…it really depends on how you look at it…40 years ago in this galaxy, an unlikely hero, an asthmatic astronaut, a space cowboy, a space bear(?), and a princess with an iconic hairdo took over the multiplexes of the world.

If you followed that, then you probably already know what today is, but for the rest of you — it’s the 40th anniversary of “Star Wars.” Read the rest of this entry

…Remember

If you’ve been battling the feeling that you’ve forgotten something important this weekend, I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that you’ve come to the right place. That bad news is…well…Happy Mother’s Day eve!

While I know that most of our fellow crusaders have already made plans (or at least have a card in the mail), consider this your official reminder that tomorrow is in fact Mother’s Day. This is not a drill! It’s officially go (or deal with the guilt) time! Read the rest of this entry

…Cut Back

Happy Eat What You Want Day…sorry…I can’t even fake the enthusiasm with an exclamation point. Don’t we already celebrate this on Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, and—assuming you’re in charge of your own diet—every single day?

…Hit the Heights

Happy Sunday, fellow crusaders! This week the 2017 class of  Tony nominees was revealed, which has me tapping my toes and humming a few more show tunes than usual.

Whether you’re feeling the same way, or you need a little help getting in touch with your inner theater nerd, you’ve come to the right place. In honor of this year’s nominees and those who were overlooked, I’m declaring this a Broadway Sunday Funday. Read the rest of this entry

…Correspond

Today marks President Trump’s 100th day in office. It seems fitting that it falls on the same day as the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. As you may already know, and probably could have guessed given their relationship, President Trump will not be attending.

While it’s not surprising, given the tension between the administration and the press, it really is a shame. If ever there was a relationship that might benefit from some quality time together away from the office it’s the press and Mr. Trump. Tonight’s dinner would have been awkward, but it also could have helped to humanize both sides. Read the rest of this entry
