And the sky is grey…

  I’ve wanted to move to California since I was 12 years old. On my 13th birthday my friend gave me a bottle of pink champagne which she smuggled back for me from a family vacation to Hollywood. The plan was to drink it on my 16th birthday, on our way to California in the…

Urban Honesty

Honestly!! An Urban Dictionary? For what? Our language is going to hell in a hand-basket and there are real live humans who actually believe that it is a reliable source of legitimate information. What kind of humanity leads to literary chaos so powerful that even the Oxford English Dictionary is bullied into granting ‘trolleyed’, ‘jazz…

My Vagina + Household Cleaner = Unconditional Love

When we see the news we are often taken aback by the stories of stupidity and wonder what the hell is wrong with somebody who leaves their baby alone in the car for hours but it’s kind of hard to blame them when you see some of the messages they get when they watch television…

The miracle of life… and couple’s colonics

Jen: I’ve been on call for weeks for the birth of a baby and she’s threatening to come today so I have to go check on Mama at noon. If it looks like a false alarm I’ll text you after and see if there is still time for coffee today. Does that work for you? D: sounds…

App-Happy

Maybe it’s because I have a blackberry. Maybe it’s because I’m a cynical bitch. Maybe it’s because It kind of grosses me out how dependent/addicted North Americans have become on/on cell phones, text messaging and social media. It weirds me out a little how frantic people are about their missed calls and messages. I’m not…

True Dat

  I confess. The reason why I missed days and weeks of blogging is because I submitted myself to my most dangerous blog research experiment to date. True Blood. There, I said it and I honestly felt the weight lift off me with each word. I feel safe now, less alone. “Why Jen?” You might…

From here to nowhere in 3 days…

  Not that I think my life is a T.V. show or anything but… After 2 24 hour days straight of packing the hell out of my house because I can’t deal with the on going harassment of my landlords a minute longer, I shower, make some tea and curl up on the couch to…

Control versus Chinese Food

The pros to being a single parent include an entire category labeled CONTROL. I’m not ashamed to admit it. Having control makes parenting so much easier. I don’t mean actual control over your children or their behaviour, I’m not that delusional. I mean control of parenting them. Also, there is a certain truth about the…

Vagina Camp.

That’s right, you heard me, I said Vagina Camp. The thing is… I have written many posts already, with a plethora of keywords to chose from and for some reason, the majority of googlers who land on The Lady’s Lounge are searching for… how can I say this without getting even higher google rankings for…

Bad Boyfriend!

We had just had the most amazing sex ever. I could still taste it. We went for a boardwalk stroll, holding hands and gazing adoringly into each other’s eyes. We walked right up to this girl who was waiting with wide eyed anticipation as we approached her. My boyfriend turned to me and said… “Jen,…
