  • Terrorized by my Bicycle for my 45th Birthday

    By Lisa Ellen Niver

    November 16, 2012 | 9:13 pm

     "I did this to myself," I mumbled. I kept thinking, "This is my fault. I am stuck on this bike in this heat in Bagan to celebrate my big birthday. I chose this. I must be crazy." I wondered, "Why am I torturing myself? Are we having fun yet?"

    George, my happy husband, seemed so...

    I can’t remember exactly WHEN I started matchmaking, but it seems like I’ve been doing it forever…  In fact, I clearly remember trying to set people up back when I was in high school.  Most kids seemed open to it, however I was always asked the same question, even to this day: “Why? ...

  • The Male Gaze

    Pretty girls get things for free.  You may not like this, you may think it’s a terrible superficial tragedy of our society that rewards people for something they don’t deserve.  You may think it’s a double standard because men aren’t rewarded based on appearance in the same...

    Reading the newspaper the other day, I couldn’t help but notice an article about the Russian President Dimitry Medvedev and Arnold Schwarzenegger.  Apparently, the two have become quite fond of each other, and as recently as last week even Tweeted about it.

  • Stodgy Jews

    By Joel Chasnoff

    Last night, I did my stand-up comedy act at a fundraiser for a Jewish newspaper. The publisher, a Jewish grandma in her 60s named Esther, explained that if the newspaper didn’t raise fifty grand, they’d have to fold. She blamed their predicament on the economy, and also on...

  • What the heck is Hillary up to?

    “I think you’ll be able to imagine many things Senator McCain will be able to say.  He’s never been the president, but he will put forth his lifetime of experience. I will put forth my lifetime of experience. Senator Obama will put forth a speech he made in 2002.”

  • Viagra and Love

    By Ellie Kahn

    I've been thinking about sex.

    Now that I'm over 50, I'm enjoying sex more than I did in my youth. Will the fun last, I wonder?
