On Friday, I suspected that perhaps I was undergoing The Change. I am now rather convinced. I did consult my women’s Facebook group; I noted my symptoms—that I was experiencing waves of warmth and erratic sleep. I was met with a resounding “Yep.” Girlfriends of mine emailed me, texted me as well. I had coffee with a girlfriend who has just turned sixty. Every woman with her own experience, but one that is universal for women. So. I am now at the onset of what may be My Big Change. I’ve decided that I will start a separate entry on BARB called The Pause Chronicles. I am going to document as much as I can what I am experiencing, what my body feels like, how my moods resonate. I hope I can remain faithful to this. I hope you will stick with me.

Oprah. Oprah. Here is  the transcript of her Golden Globes Speech and you’re welcome. “For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up.”

Golden Globes is Hollywood and Hollywood is #metoo. If you don’t know much about the movement, well, here is the site where you can learn about it.

Elizabeth Moss quoting Margaret Atwood in her Golden Globes speech.

Amber Tamblyn: “We actresses are not just modeling clothing when we walk a red carpet on award show night. We are modeling a kind of behavior. We are speaking in a coded language to other women — even young girls — that says: The way I look and what I wear and how I wear it is the standard for women. What is being worn is not an exception. It is the rule. You must dress a certain way and look a certain way if you want to be valued as a woman, no matter what you do for a living or who you are.”

Betty White:  “You don’t give up.”



Surprise! Becoming a mom can be unnerving!

Are you a tote bag user?

Lelo Has a Vibrator For You! (My review will be up later this week.)

I can’t with how cute this bag is from Opening Ceremony.


And now have a laugh with Naomi Ekperigin.
