So that thing I did – where I was interviewed for a news piece about the LIRR gendered ticket policy? The piece is up and can be found on the WFUV website, linked here: SHOULD THE MTA GET RID OF GENDERED PASSES? I originally asked that ‘they’ be used as my prefered pronoun, but the […]

Perhaps there has been an unknown reason for my little social experiment; the one where I have saved my LIRR train tickets for the past eighteen years. (If you are just tuning in, read: Riding the Long Island Railroad, Conductor Confusion, What would you like to be today?, She’s Back…) Up until now, the main […]

As the mother of a young transgender child, my response to Caitlyn Jenner’s headline-grabbing announcement is a visceral one. Yes, I’m kind of put off by the hype. No, I’m not a big fan of celebrity culture or reality television. But when I look at the cover of Vanity Fair, and…
After my uncomfortable shopping excursion to get a sport coat, I stopped at the Burger King down the road to pick up a nutritious balanced meal for lunch. One would think shopping at the ‘big and tall’ shop should have prompted me to find something healthier. 😦 I wait on line – get up to […]

I have tinnitus. You know, that ‘ringing’ sound some people have in their ears. I have had it as long as I can remember, although I am sure that there was some time in my life where I didn’t. For the most part, it’s not a problem as the normal ambient sounds of every day […]
