Well, here’s a list of the 20 best places to go solo. I’ve been to six, five solo, and I vouch for these places.

R.I.P. to My Travel Companion(11/18/2014)-The year was 2004. I was dating a techie who prided himself on having the latest and greatest of anything that even vaguely resembled a gadget. He was so obsessed that his house had very little in the way of actual furniture or dishes. However, if one of his gadgets needed a stand, a case … Continue reading R.I.P. to My Travel Companion
J+B = Beyoncé Part III(9/21/2014)-ICYMI: Part I (J+B = Beyonce Part I) and Part II (J+B = Beyonce Part II) Following the “Flawless” remix, Beyoncé performed “Yonce” before once again disappearing through the stage and being replaced by Jay-Z. The rest of the concert’s format was much the same with the couple alternating sets and sometimes appearing together on … Continue reading J+B = Beyoncé Part III
J+B = Beyoncé Part I(9/21/2014)-(I started writing this piece last Saturday after attending the On the Run Tour on Friday, September 12th. I’d put it away after starting to work on something else. The concert aired on HBO last night and I awoke to virtually my entire Facebook timeline discussing it. So I decided to finish this piece. It’s … Continue reading J+B = Beyoncé Part I
Breaking Stupid in the City(1/7/2014)-Once again, I’m late to the TV party. I’m currently engaged in marathon of the now cancelled AMC show “Breaking Bad.” I’m enjoying the show, however, I don’t know how people watched it week-to-week for 5 whole seasons.
Who Really Breaks Up In a Breakup?(11/5/2013)-The answer: Everybody! I just finished watching a recording of ‘The Wendy Williams Show.’ During the “Hot Topics” segment, she talked about Ryan Secrest hanging out with the brother of his now EX-girlfriend, Julianne Hough. (Let’s just agree to ignore the obvious, ok?). Wendy posed the question to her audience: Is it ok to continue … Continue reading Who Really Breaks Up In a Breakup?
When She is More Successful(9/4/2013)-I came across an article today that summarized a study stating that men feel worse about themselves when their female partners are more successful. I’ve long suspected this was the case but never had any evidence, other than anecdotal, to validate this suspicion.
How Men Love(8/26/2013)-I’m watching “Marrying The Game” on VH1. Judge me. A friend of the fiancé just said “You’re expecting Jayceon to love you the way you want to be loved versus accepting that he’s loving you the way he knows how.” The fiancé replied, “He thinks providing is loving.” The friend responded, “Most men do.” The … Continue reading How Men Love
The Dip Back(8/19/2013)-I was listening to the Tom Joyner Morning Show this morning and an interesting topic came up: “Have You Ever ‘Dipped Back’ to an Old Relationship for a New Fling?” The topic reminded me of a blog I wrote some years ago – “The Ghosts of Chrissy’s Past.” Virtually every one of my exes has … Continue reading The Dip Back
No Scary Age for Me!!(8/18/2013)-I don’t have a “scary” age. I’ve never had one and don’t ever plan to have one. I am, however, in the age group where many of my peers are at their scary age, quickly approaching their scary age or they’re depressed because they’ve long ago passed their scary age. Let me explain the concept … Continue reading No Scary Age for Me!!
The Sexiest Thing About a Man(8/10/2013)-I’ve been writing this blog (in my head) for a little over a week now. I began writing it after date with a guy I’ve been dating casually for a little over a month. He’s a great guy. He looks good on paper (educated, gainfully employed, no kids, well-traveled, financially stable (from outward appearances)). And … Continue reading The Sexiest Thing About a Man
Dear Huma, Stand by Your Man!(8/5/2013)-This blog entry was originally intended to be an open letter to Huma Weiner the long-suffering wife of NY Mayoral candidate, Anthony Weiner. I had all these grand ideas of sharing with her how incredibly weak and naïve she appeared “standing by her man” for the second time as he ‘fessed up to acts of … Continue reading Dear Huma, Stand by Your Man!
