Freak Of The Week: Something’s Fishy

Something’s Fishy & it’s certainly my Freak of the Week. I think activists are great. In the hippie town that I call home, there are roadside war protesters every Friday night– rain or shine. Their dedication and conviction is nothing short of admirable. But some people tend to get carried away. Like the kind whose parents give them a Mercury Sable station wagon and they...

The Motorhead Guide To Lake Tahoe

This year, I spent the holiday season in stunning Lake Tahoe. Because everybody knows, there’s nothing more exciting than your baby’s first snowfall: I figure my East Coast roots make me smart enough to drive well in the white stuff & I’m now California enough to know I can still look awesome doing so. But nothing could prepare me for this: The roads of Lake...

Mama’s Mini Motorhead of the Month

One of the most exciting things about being Motorhead Mama are the unexpected fans. I mean, I expected followers like my car buddies, some Twitter pals and friends close to me with dirty minds…like my Mom. But what I didn’t expect was this: This is my home boy Justin. And he rocks.

Dear Santa, Who You Callin’ A Ho?

Every year, like any warm-blooded, marginally Christian grown up, I write a Dear Santa letter. And every year, it goes a little something like this: Dear Santa, I’ve been really (exaggerate, exaggerate or exaggerate) this year and I haven’t even once (lie, lie, lie). I was particularly proud when I (flat-out-lie) and when I (won-the-Nobel-Peace-prize or something equally ridiculous). So I’d really appreciate it if...

Drive Bys: I Saw The Signs & They’re Hilarious

I’m noticing a little trend. The more street art increases in popularity, the more popular defacing street signs becomes. Now, I’m not condoning vandalism, but… I’m certainly not disputing it either. For, frankly, these newly tweaked road signs are far more engaging than their traditional counterparts: I mean, of course I’m gonna stop, because it’s the perfect time for me to Google ‘anagram.’ Not only...

Dude, Or Douchebag: Motor 4 Toys

This morning, I woke up my kids and told them it was time for Motor 4 Toys– so we’re gonna buy a bunch of toys, give them away, and then walk a few miles so Mommy can take pictures of cars. One Lego movie, three temper tantrums and 12 donuts later, we were on our way. Motor 4 Toys is an amazing thing. Sure, it’s...
