Game ON, Chelsea Handler!

So Chelsea Handler, my rival for the title of Bestsellingest Female Humor Writer, has upped the game by posing naked — yes, I mean totally nude, as in without any clothes — for Playboy.  She revealed a Godzilla-sized picture of herself on the magazine’s cover on Leno the other night.  Chelsea is obviously so desperately […]

#144: Don’t Go Hatin’ On Halloween

I was going to enumerate everything I hate about Halloween, but just picture scary teenagers pounding at the door with cheap grillz on, the kids crying because their trick-or-treating companions ditched them, and Mommy face down in a bag full of chocolate. Instead, I want to focus, young-like, on what’s unambigously good about Halloween, and […]

Can You Get Away With RayBans?

So chuffed about the Wall Street Journal review of How Not To Act Old, which calls the book “as insightful as it is entertaining,” that I may stay up till 10:30 tonight and put an extra wedge of lemon in my seltzer.  Woo! The Journal piece includes a book excerpt detailing what items of hipster […]

OK, Now I Reaaaaaaaaally Have To Go Write My Book

Look at poor Rolf sitting there.  Every day, he comes out of the villa, perches on the cliff, positions his fingers over the keyboard, and stares out to sea, waiting, hoping, for my yacht to pull into view. He never goes in the pool, he never rides the jet skis….all he wants to do is […]

With my big truckload of money, I’ve already hired an editorial assistant, Rolf, and outfitted him with an appropriate tee shirt: That’s him on the left. […]
