Love in the Time of Texts

I love texting.   I’m not sure somebody my age is supposed to love texting, if I judge it by the number of my comrades who I hear complaining about it.   To me, they sound a lot like the stereotypical codger who complained about those new-fangled horseless carriages, and whatever names they had for other emerging … Continue reading

Divorcee, as Status

Many years ago I worked with a woman who was also a Spinster.  She seemed to have quite an interesting life, with lots of romances and the jewelry to prove it.  I wouldn’t have done it quite the way she did because in most cases she was an “important” man’s mistress and that’s not my thing.  … Continue reading

Spinsterlicious Shoe of the Week: Prelude to a New Mood

I left work the other day, exhausted.  We’ve been super-busy for awhile and working late and then collapsing into bed was starting to become my norm and I’m not at all happy about that.  Every weekday should have a distinct cut-off period when work is done for the day, followed by several hours of “whatever I … Continue reading

What to Give a Spinster for Christmas??

What to give a Spinster for Christmas?   Maybe nothing.   Every year, in the middle of the Christmas season, I’m somewhat amused by the multitudes of Gift Guides I see everywhere –in newspapers, magazines, online, handouts in stores– designed to help us choose “the perfect” gift for the people on our list.    I’m always struck by … Continue reading

Dressing for Air Travel Without Losing Your Mind (Or Getting Arrested)

Unless you’ve been living in a cave lately, you’re probably aware of the uproar around the new screening procedures at U.S. airports.  Thanks to the ever-growing threat of would-be terrorists hiding bombs in their clothing, the TSA continues to intensify security procedures for anybody who wants to get on a plane. This is the most personal … Continue reading

Indulging in Holiday Festitivities and Still Fitting Into My Clothes

Since the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, my holiday party schedule has kicked into high gear. By January 1, I’ll be happily exhausted…and just happy it’s over.  The holiday season with all the parties and socializing is always fun, but it’s no way for a grown woman to live on a regular basis.  I no longer try to … Continue reading

The Airport Meet/Meat Market?

I’ve been traveling a lot for business lately and I’m spending way too much time in airports.  It seems that flights these days rarely take off when they’re supposed to.  Much of my travel is between NYC and Chicago, two super-busy travel hubs and I’ve learned to just assume there’s going to be a big delay.   … Continue reading
