This week I got an email from a self-help guru whose mailing list I’m on with this subject line:  “Your Miracle Expires At Midnight!” This phrase seemed so ridiculously aggressive that I off-handedly emailed them back and said, “Please stop threatening me!” I certainly didn...
Nothing is more daunting than Secret Santa, especially if you don’t know your drawn-from-a-hat giftee at all. We’re doing that tonight at the Laughing Lotus Holiday Party, but I am thrilled to report that I not only have a rather sensational gift to give, I also experienced a personal triumph I...
