Ella Fitzgerald: “I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt…it was because of her that I played the Mocambo, a very popular nightclub in the ’50s. She personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front [...]
Anastasia-Steele: “I groan and run my fingernails across his back. And he gasps, a strangled moan … ‘You are going to unman me, Ana … You—take me.’ I sink down onto him … reveling in the fullness of my possession, reveling in his reaction, watching him unravel beneath me. I feel like a [...]
Cinda: Today two guys called me beautiful. ”Hi, beautiful” – said by a guy where I work, and ”See you tonight, beautiful” – texted from Hubby. And while it is not an everyday event that I am called beautiful, by far, today I just really cringed both times. I was having a real turd of [...]
My dear friend made these for me not too long ago and I’ve been dying to have them again. This morning I finally had the time to do it and they were every bit as good as I remembered. The recipe yields quite a lot though, so we’re having left-over pancakes tomorrow too!
(Serves 6 [...]
Driving home from his buddy, my 8 year old was bitching and moaning: “Why does HE get to have his own iPad AND a Wii AND his own computer AND…”
It was a long list.
True to form, after a while, I snapped. I was never spoiled with lots of stuff myself as a kid [...]
It is late August and hence time to harvest some of all those zucchini and tomatoes (that you can buy at the supermarket!).
1 large zucchine or 2 small ones or a million tiny ones As many zucchini flowers as you have the nerve to pick 4 large tomatoes 1 red bell pepper [...]
I just ate this for dinner and it was delicious!
I thought I’d share:
Olive oil Half a head of pointy cabbage 1 zucchini and as many zucchini flowers as you can get your greedy little hands on 1/2 cup cashew nuts 2 cloves garlic Oyster sauce, [...]
I know a little old lady named Martha. She must be in her late 70’s or (gulp!) EIGHTIES by now!? She is a fun-loving’ gal, fond of bearded men and Scottish whiskey. She won the Newport Seafood and Wine Festival’s oyster-eating competition several times. She is as tall as a stack of cookies, has white, [...]
Honey, let’s go put your shoes on.
Ok, now come and get your shoes.
Honey- you need to put your shoes on.
Do you need me to help you?
Let’s see if you are a BIG boy who can put his own shoes on?
Can you hear me?
YO! Please [...]
We were met with cheese and crackers and homegrown veggies and dip. Hummus and fruit and wine. Trying to overcome the jetlag, we went to bed at a reasonable hour.
For breakfast we had oat-pancakes made with butter-roasted almond splits and blueberries. Served with sliced bananas, chunky peanut butter and maple [...]
I got away from my group of friends, as we went down to the Fjord to watch the traditional Mid-Summer bonfire.
Making my way through the crowd, I caught up with my boyfriend and took his hand. We stood there for a while, leaning in on each other, holding hands, enjoying the sight of the [...]
I wish you the most lovely of summers, filled with life, love and fun & food, laughter, friends and lots of happiness.
May the sun kiss your face, your tan be great and adventure lurk ’round every corner.
Cinda loves you!
I was at the airport, bored, bookless and hungry for light entertainment, when 50 Shades of Grey called my name. ”MORE THAN 70 MILLION COPIES SOLD WORLDWIDE” the back of it boasted.
The plot is just one level over that of a porn movie. Basically, we just need to set a scene, so we can [...]

I hadn’t seen him since he told me calmly and matter of factly that he didn’t want to invest in our relationship anymore, as if I were a business associate he needed to lay off.
“Your work has been adequate but I’m downsizing in the romance department, so good luck in your [...]
With or without our intent or knowledge, we each of us create concentric circles of influence that may affect others for years – even generations. The effect we have on others is passed on to others, and then passed on to others and then others again. This idea – which I have taken [...]
When I was 15, I had my first serious bout with death angst. I believe it is common, at this age, on the threshold of adulthood and in the throes of a hormonal frenzy, to think about the life that lies ahead. One has to choose direction. I remember spending a whole day [...]
I noticed him right away when I first met him in our Paris office, months ago. He is the prototype of a rare type of man, I like to call “Le Charmeur”. I’ve meet perhaps a handful of these in my life. Recently, I was fortunate enough to spend time with him again at a [...]
This piece is part of a creative writing challenge “The Cindafuckingrella Write Off” with the theme: “Life”
I hesitantly got out of the car. Two men were tearing down the garage. They told me if I wanted a last look I had to do it now, as they were demolishing [...]
