My mother. Her name was Kathleen, which she shortened to Kathi, Spell it with a Y or, God forbid, a C, and she’d lacerate your face with her scowl. She was a hair taller than five feet and I once saw her turn over a refrigerator during a fight with one of her boyfriends. (,,,) [...]
We’re back with Part 2 of our interview with the incredible and fabulous Jeni Britton Bauer of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream fame. (You can find ...
When it comes to love and fear and courage and faith, I can’t help but think of fabulous women and ice cream. I mean, doesn’t ...

Arrow fans know him as Malcolm Merlyn, the Dark Archer. Doctor Who and Torchwood fans know him as the immortal time-traveler Captain Jack Harkness. But those two roles are just a fraction of Man of the Moment John Barrowman’s resume. Last month, John Barrowman gave up a chunk of an afternoon to do a phone [...]
Camille had been terrified of horses ever since Pinto, her rent-a-horse, went on a wild tear, galloping through the dense pine woods of northern Michigan on a family outing led by Blanche, a woman who dubbed herself the “Horse Whisperer.”
This week, we have a special review from Kymm Zuckert, who recaps last night’s Tony Awards. Hooray! It’s time for my annual night to complain that straight plays Don’t Get No Respect! Take a shot every time I bitch and piss and moan about how they are the red-headed step-child of the Tonys and you’ll [...]
6:43 AM Mountain Time. Sunday Morning. The sun streaming in through the open window joins forces with the tide rolling in to stir me from sleep. The light is just starting to wash across the desert – and how odd is it, I ask you – that the desert runs right to the sea? But [...]
When I was asked to title this column, I chose Deep Cuts because I planned on reviewing both current and older films, but because summer is a’comin’ in, there have been new films up the wazoo, and why review older ones when there are all these brand new movies filled with the promise of perfection [...]
Did that catch your attention?!? Ladies, I hate to be the one to spill the beans, but we aren’t alone in our love for antiques and vintage finds. Our guys: boyfriends, husbands, dads and, perhaps even sons, have a love for antiques. My little 3-year-old has been helping me find treasures since before he could [...]
Maggie Hope is quickly becoming my favorite historical mystery heroine. His Majesty’s Hope, the third volume in Susan Elia MacNeal’s series about an intrepid young woman working behind the scenes for the British government during WWII, is the best one yet. I was completely engaged from the first chapter, and couldn’t put it down. Maggie [...]
As we straddle that sweet spot between spring and summer in the Northern Hemisphere, I find it’s a perfect time to step into courage and cast the shackles of fear aside. Maybe it’s because I equate it to taking a flying leap off of the high-dive for the first time. It’s the perfect time to [...]
For five years I’ve had the privilege of working as a writings editor for ATG. I’ve loved every minute of reading the submissions and working with such a talented team. Now it’s time for me to concentrate on my own writing but I thought I’d share some of my thoughts about my time being The [...]
I hate “Taps.” There aren’t a lot of pieces of music I can say that about, but of them all, “Taps” is at the top of the list of “Songs I Hate.” The irony is that, in and of itself, it’s a beautiful piece of music. This haunting bugle call was originally meant as the [...]
Before Midnight was coming out, and I had never seen Before Sunrise (1995) or Before Sunset (2004), not that I hadn’t had plenty of time. I quickly got Before Sunrise from Netflix and watched it right away. A completely charming, lovely movie about nice and interesting Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke), meeting on [...]
The Baby Boomer Sandwich I remember some years ago someone saying that baby boomers would be a sandwich generation. By the time they were in their middle years they might have frail parents while still be looking after their own children or helping with grandchildren. At the time I dismissed the comment, thinking that the [...]
Last summer I ventured to Atlanta, Georgia for a weekend girlfriends’ getaway hosted from a childhood friend. I discovered that Atlanta has much to offer visitors. I visited several attractions, but the unbearably hot 100° plus weather prohibited me from visiting several others. Here is a list of some of the places I visited and [...]
I used to enjoy drama in my life. No, let me be honest: I used to actually seek and attract drama, like confrontation in work situations. Now? I consider stepping away from drama in my life as self care. Taking care of the home your soul lives in is just as important as taking care [...]
Welcome to All Things Girl, Brian. Tell us a little about yourself. Where did you grow up, and where do you now call home? I grew up in Shaker Heights, right outside of Cleveland. I went to a public school with a great music program. After moving to Boston to study at Berklee College of [...]
So, it’s Mother’s Day, at least in much of North America, and a few other places. Mexico, where my mother lives, celebrated it on Friday, as their Mother’s Day is always on May 10th, instead of being the second Sunday in May, or seventy-third day after the first dark Tuesday, or whatever. But, anyway, it’s [...]
Hooray, the summer movie season has begun! “But Mighty Kymm,” I hear you cry, “It is not summer, it is the beginning of May, and it just totally snowed in Wisconsin!” This may be true, but it’s 93° here in LA, and also we are sick of the post-Oscars doldrums, and also we are ready [...]
I was in the midst of my first serious post-college relationship when my mother wondered aloud if I was a lesbian. “But I’m dating a man,” I stammered, even though she had met him. “We went out last night.” My mother and I were snuggled on a floral loveseat in my parents’ living room, our [...]
There’s a confession I have to make, and it may startle some and confuse others. I’ve taken up knitting. That’s right, I’m a knitter. If you told me a year ago that I would be even remotely interested in knitting, I wouldn’t have believed it. I practically break out into hives when I enter [...]
