  • Does A Wedding Dress + A Broken Heart – Bitterness = Stupidity?

    By Ilana Angel

    Yesterday I decided to clean out my front hall closet.  As a professional organizer, I spend my days keeping other people’s things in order.  My home is extremely organized.  I know where everything is and I like that.  This particular closet however, had become a bit of dumping... read on

  • Homeless Man + Chocolate Covered Cherry = TGIF.  Seriously.

    It’s been a long week.  Work is busy, my mother is in town, it’s the holidays, and my son has a lot of algebra home work.  While I would love to help him, it makes absolutely no sense to me, and it takes all my strength to not tell him that he will never need to know this crap.

  • Happy Hanukkah – I’m Bleeding!

    Last night was the first night of Hanukkah.  It’s such a happy holiday.  It’s fascinating for a holiday that is so old, and seeped in such tradition, that nobody knows how to spell it.  If I get a dozen cards, from a dozen different people, each card will spell it differently.

  • Public Displays of Affection vs. Public Displays of Sex

    I’ve always been big on PDA’s.  I think it’s lovely to walk holding hands, or to grab a quick kiss when out and about with someone I care about.  There are many ways to show affection in public and my personal favorite is when the man I am with places his hand on the small of... read on

  • Skating With The “Stars” May Be the Worse Show on Television – Ever

    By Ilana Angel

    I have decided to keep watching this show.  Not because it is good, but because it is so bad.  I love reality television and I write about it a lot.  This show however, is being written about not because I love it, but rather because every single second of it is a nightmare.

  • Mom, A Blown Tire & Thanksgiving With Jesus, Moses & Muhammad

    By Ilana Angel

    November 29, 2010 | 9:37 am

    My mom is in town. She is super cute and I get a kick out of her.  She’s not much for going out.  She likes to stay home, cooking and knitting.  It’s funny because those are Grandmotherly things to do and I guess I now view her as the Grandma to my child, as much as my own... read on

    I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I certainly did.  I went with my son to one of his best friend’s home.  It was a magnificent meal, with wonderful people, and I could not have enjoyed myself more.  It was really terrific and I feel blessed my son and I were included in the... read on
