As is the case with any relationship gone south, sometimes you need to break up with your therapist. Maybe you feel ready to fly in the world on your own, or you’ve stopped connecting, or maybe she said something awful, like “You shouldn’t cry so much.” I don’t care how much she helped you unpack your mommy issues, she’s not going to be of any more assistance saying crap like that. So you know you need to dump your shrink, but how? It seems like it would be easier than breaking up with someone you’ve been sleeping with. But sometimes, because of the intimate nature of things you share with your therapist, it’s harder. You have a few options. Some shrink dumping approaches after the jump. Keep reading »

There was only one episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” last night. I felt the second episode missing like a phantom limb.

Or that Sugar Bear would be such a genius at naming smells? Or that Alana spoke Spanish? The Boo Boos continue to impress the shit out of me. The things I learned last night after the jump.

An unnamed, 26-year-old Russian woman has been charged with murdering a man with her bra. Allegedly drunk, the woman and her boyfriend went next door to ask her 65-year-old neighbor for cash to to buy more booze. When the man refused, the woman beat him and then took her bra off and strangled him with it.

Yes, this is an awful crime. This innocent man did not deserve to die at the hands of this terrible woman and her brassiere. But let’s glean what good we can from it, shall we?

I was standing 23 feet off the ground on a rickety platform overlooking Manhattan’s East River, a sea of people below watching, waiting for me to jump. Every muscle in my body was trembling. I reviewed my options.

When I told M* on our first date that I’d always secretly dreamed of being in the circus, I didn’t think he’d take me seriously. When he booked trapeze lessons for us, my normal, second date anxiety was replaced with a more palpable terror.

I’ve suffered all my life from a condition called benign paroxysmal vertigo. Starting at age three, I began having mysterious dizzy spells. Out of nowhere, with no warning, everything in my vision would split into a million pieces and start spinning and swirling around me in every direction.
