Breaking News: My debit card number was stolen and while it is very annoying, I was more struck by how unimaginative the thief was: $45 at Pathmark at Ozone Park, $19 at Burger King, $120 Duane Reade, $99 at Wallgreens, $1.50 for a meter in NYC. Talking to the person at Citibank in Fraudulent Transactions was depressing, I just imagined them wielding my fake card around to buy hair straighteners and clock radios at Wallgreens. When she told me they spent $150 at Urban Outfitters and $120 at Mandee, I was actually glad they began to realize the possibilities.

Celebrity gossip: Asta is looking so matted and crazy, I’m thinking of renaming her Phyllis Diller. Then we can rename Chewie, Fang, which may be even more fitting because the other morning I woke up to find one of his teeth on my pillow.
In Media: The redesign of Ladies Home Journal looked pretty enough for me to actually buy it. Either they did a good job or the 40ish part of my life is really happening to me.
