Giving Thanks for Damiana

Watched this on the plane home but wasn't able to post because of tablet limitations. I would kill to know what Charlie's final angel thinks of this whole thing!

Leg Man

I still say Chris Pratt is the sexiest man alive for 2014 -- and HIS THIGHS prove it.

Is Tat My Friend?

Thanks, Facebook. But if I knew this guy, something tells me I wouldn't need reminding.

Black Friday: A Gay Love Story


 A little Black Friday levity from my pal Dennis Hensley and out singer-songwriter Tom Goss.

Goodbye, Phoenix!

I think I'll miss these monkeys most of all.

Trough Lesson

Sorry, it was an honest mistake.

Just a leisurely day with the family in Madison Heights, Mich., no 1977 Instagram filter required.

Postcard From Arizona

"Goddamn it, put the fucking thing down." -- My mom, giving my stepfather helpful turkey-prep instructions. 

Thursday Ad Watch

Happy Thanksgiving, All!

Having a great time in Arizona with my family, for whom I am eternally grateful. Hope you're surrounded with love all day long, too. xo

Song of the Day: 'Starlight' by Muse

This sounds a lot like something else yet I can't put my finger on it.

My family in Rehoboth Beach, Del., in the late '70s -- although you'd be forgiven if you thought that was my mom and sister with low-rent Dorothy Hamill, Corrado Barazzutti and Bjorn Borg impersonators!

Song of the Day: 'Lost a Girl' by New Young Pony Club (NYPC)

I love a band that was formed in 2004 that has more lineup changes than the Pretenders!

Raising Arizona

The salted-caramel bundt cake my sister and I made for Mom's birthday. It only took 19 hours ...

Clearly parenting would not have been my calling: My sister just got a call that her 8-year-old daughter, Ally (above), got in trouble for "running" in the lunch room yesterday and again today for moving her "merit clip" up the board twice when she was only being recognized once.  Turns out the witnesses later admitted she had in fact been skipping and the girl who told on her about the merit clip move is a notorious goody-two-shoes. Note to Mrs. Bailey: in the future, be more specific when questioning my niece -- she WASN'T running -- and as for the merit clip, I commend Ally's moxie. I'd have done same thing to make up for the trumped-up running charge she had to plea to. Everybody be knowin' that snitches are bitches anyway, y'all!

Retail Irony

Have never seen affordable slim-cut T-shirts in NYC before, so I snatched these up at Target yesterday. Seems funny that they would sell them someplace where no one seems to have any use for them.

Mar-ily We Roll Along

Having a great time visiting friends and family in Phoenix -- hope you're having a nice week wherever you are, too!

Song of the Day: 'Weekend' by Ladytron

Best use of a Casio keyboard since A La Plage in '83!
