When I walked into the kitchen, I received the news that while Graeme was playing in the hot tub with our sisters, she dove under the water and had gotten stuck. The force of the drain had trapped her, and the strength of three grown men, as well as my mother, couldn’t pull her up.… More »
Tina Fey is quitting the Internet. As the former 30 Rock actress, who is currently co-starring in the movie Sisters with frequent collaborator Amy Poehler, explained in an interview with Net-A-Porter, she doesn’t believe online outrage is productive. “We did an Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt episode and the Internet was in a… More »

Growing up with three sisters, I can guarantee there is no fight worse than one with a sister — not with your husband, wife, ex-wife, ex-husband, mother, child, father, neighbor, co-worker, boss, or friend. Sure, a fight with your child might hurt, but he or she will come around. You’re one of their parents for… More »

Even though last night’s Golden Globes telecast was woefully bereft of as much Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as I would have liked (three hours, non-stop, give them all the awards, don’t invite anyone else, etc.), we did get a 20-second look at their new comedy, “Sisters,” and naturally, it is 100x better than any relationship… More »
For as long as I can remember, people have been asking me what it’s like to be a twin. Over the years, I’ve expected the questions to become less stupid and frequent, but unfortunately, the exact opposite has happened, leaving me fearful for humankind and hoping Darwinism comes into play sooner rather than later.

Here are my first memories of my sisters.
My newborn sister Jenny is brought home from the hospital, three days after my birthday. I am excited, suspicious, eager, and in my curiosity, poke her in the eye, provoking a banshee shriek that does not stop. This sets the tone for all of our… More »
My brother grew up with four sisters in the house. I know, right? Come to find out, there’s more to having a bunch of sisters than just growing up to be a ladies’ man. A new study published in the Journal of Politics has found that boys with sisters are more likely to grow up… More »
Dakota Fanning and Elle Fanning — they’re young, they’re talented and they’re so, so pretty. Both sisters have incredible careers and great style (and are at least three years away from the legal drinking limit). Both of them make me feel like I haven’t accomplished squat with my life. Thanks Fannings, I’m depressed now.

What were you doing 20 years ago today? Perhaps preparing to watch a new NBC drama called “Sisters”?
It was two decades ago that the Emmy-winning series premiered, earning critical acclaim and a loyal fanbase, while helping to launch the careers of up-and-comers like Ashley Judd and Paul Rudd. The series also earned a… More »
I was 14 and I was having slippery feelings. I was having them for Roelle, the sophomore with giant tits who told me she liked my shirt, before crawling under a wool blanket to make out with her boyfriend on the front lawn of the high school. I was having them for Eleanor, who told… More »
When we were kids, my younger brother Greg drove me bonkers. His favorite activity was lying like a corpse on my bed while I screamed, “GET OUT, GET OUT, GET OUT!” until I finally dragged him into the hallway. He also liked hiding, then jumping out and scaring me. He wailed like a cat in… More »
How do I tell my sister that she’s not going to get what she ultimately wants out of her boyfriend? My sister has been dating a very good guy for over two years, and I know she wants him to be her husband and the father of her children. However, there are some roadblocks. They… More »
It strikes me as interesting that a short but sweet essay on the benefits of having a sister, called “Why Sisterly Chats Make People Happier,” has been one of the most popular articles on The New York Times website for over a week. The essay is in response to a recent Brigham Young University study… More »
In a dream world, where my uterus wasn’t running out of time, childbirth was painless, and kids behaved like angels, I would have four kids: three girls, one boy. Unfortunately, in the real world, my son, having grown up surrounded by girls, would be viewed as “less sexy” by women as an adult. That’s according… More »
