My mother, with Jean and Joyce, is one of the featured speakers today at the annual AARP convention in Orlando, Florida.* (Imagine the trouble almost 25,000 Baby Boomers can get into. CRAZYTIME.)

Our friend Lauren has been in a fabulous show for years now and the fifth season just debuted in New York. (If you’re there, go see Naked in a Fishbowl so you can laugh uproariously, lament your own lack of talent and say you saw the girls before they were world famous.) We saw it back when it was WWTA and it breaks my heart we aren’t nearby anymore. But looky looky- they made this week’s Time Out London!
As a side note, because I web-stalk the women in the show, I am privy to the brilliance of some of their other projects. You need to soak up the hilarity now, before they’re on Daily Show or SNL or lost in the suburbs somewhere. It might even be too late:
Last but most, our boy Jeremy was in the right place at the right time (and is also the unofficial mayor of Brooklyn) and his apartment was used in a recent tv commercial for a bank. And yes, there was a payday involved. I want you to know several things: (a) sometime around 2004 I approved his choice of paint for the accent wall, (b) there is one piece of his own furniture that actually made it into the shoot and (c) if his apartment always looked like this, I would have come over more often between the years 2003-2008.
