That Time I Couldn’t Finish Amy Schumer’s Book

Facebook Memories reminded me that on this day last year, I canned Amy Schumer’s stupid book.   The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer My rating: 2 of 5 stars I like Amy Schumer? Maybe? I thought I did? I’m inching closer and closer to the conclusion that I’d like Amy Schumer […]

Sammon Says: That’s (Not) What Friends are For

Hello Sammon Says, I don’t know what it is about me, but I seem to attract “best” friends that treat me like, for lack of a better word, shit. So, I find myself, yet again, in a position of being “best” friends with someone who I don’t really believe actually deserves that title. The only […]

Favorite Book of 2017 (So Far)

This is the first time I’ve set a reading goal since the days of BOOK IT. I just finished my 20th book this year (click HERE for a review of that one). I know some people who have read 40 books and others who will read three. We all go at our own pace, but my […]

Your Suburban Apathy

I grew up in Chicagoland. That’s actually what they call it. And by it I mean the great sprawl of suburbs surrounding Chicago.

Sammon Says: Unsolicited Dating Advice

Remember when I started an advice column, gave some advice, and then stopped for months and months and months? Well, I’m not a quitter! (Yet…) Before I get back to questions, I want to dole out some totally unsolicited dating advice. Last week, I had lunch with one of my [single] friends, Maggie. We talked […]

What’s Ours

While I agree that there are far more important things to be outraged over than the Mike Pence v. Hamilton showdown, it did bring to mind something I’ve been mulling over for awhile. Reagan used “Born in the USA” during his campaign and Springsteen asked him to stop, HW Bush was shut down from using […]
