    “SO SORRY,” writer Joshuah Bearman e-mails after he forgets about our interview. “I’ve stood up someone exactly twice before, and have been stood up a couple times too, and it’s terrible. I could still meet, if you aren’t peeved …”

  • Dumping George Clooney for Daniel Craig

    By Ilana Angel

    November 1, 2012 | 3:47 pm

    I dream a lot about George Clooney.  It’s not always the actual Clooney in my dreams, but most of the men I dream about have Clooney’s face. Any man who appears in my dreams, bus driver, teacher, fisherman, or pilot, looks like George Clooney.  I take comfort in knowing I will meet...

    For most Angelenos, President Barack Obama’s visit to Los Angeles for a fundraiser on May 10 at George Clooney’s house was a reason to stay as far away from the Hollywood Hills as possible.

    There has certainly been a lot going on lately, and while all of these subjects deserve an article all to themselves, I am in Mommy mode this week and with my child’s insane schedule, I have opted to throw them all into one blog.  It makes sense really because the one piece that...

    When I was in Kindergarten my big dream was to be a policewoman someday, and I hadn’t regretted the decision not to pursue that path until this morning, when I heard George Clooney was arrested for civil disobedience.

    I had a date over the weekend with a guy we’ll call “Dick”.  He wrote to me online, and after a couple of email exchanges we spoke on the phone and made a plan to meet for a drink.  He seemed like a nice enough man and I was looking forward to meeting him.  Not really my type...

  • Kissing Strangers

    By Ilana Angel

    December 1, 2011 | 12:47 am

    Before we tackle this subject I think we need to establish how important kissing is.  For me, I can fall for a man based on just one kiss.  Sadly I can also dump a man based on just one kiss.  I believe you can tell a lot about a man by how he kisses.  Kissing is a powerful thing and...

    Today is my birthday and I am 45 years old.  I remember very clearly when my mother turned 40 and thinking she was ancient, so what does that make me? I can’t remember where I leave my keys most days, but I remember being young and I can honestly say that now is better.
