    I Stopped Buying Gas at Circle K

    Resolutions have never been my thing, mainly because I'm a compulsive liar -- especially to myself. I'll tell myself on New Year's Eve, "Self, this is the year we lose 50 pounds," and even as I'm making the vow, I'm reaching for the cheesecake, becau...

    I Gave Up My Favorite Bar

    The most degrading moment in my life was when a peanut bounced off my head in a bar. It led to the only resolution I can remember actually sticking to. Teakwoods was a great bar. Sports were on, food was served late, and drinks were cheap. It was ...

    I Stopped Cheating

    Every time one of my friends starts thinking about cheating on her boyfriend or husband, she calls me. With good reason. I've been there, and I've done that. My friends know I'd never judge them. But it's funny how predictable my advice has become...

    I Quit Lying

    I've always had a love-hate relationship with truth. As an only child with a vivid imagination, lying came easy. By junior high, I was an expert forger, using carbon paper and an old typewriter to change report card grades and signing permission slip...

    I Flew

    Left to my own motivation, I don't tend to follow through on things I decide to start doing. My legs don't get tan (1973); I don't exercise (1994-present); I don't tweak the script of my one-woman show (2004-present). I haven't learned to fly. In ...

    I Made a Place for Faith

    Last year, for once, I really had a resolution for the New Year, and I had to find a way to make it stick. It was not the kind of resolution you bring up in casual conversation. I resolved to devote more time to my faith life. As a practicing R...

    I Gave Up Shopping at Target

    It was the perfect storm: Christmas, a Target Visa card, and a coupon worth 10 percent off my entire purchase. I set off one crisp November morning with the best intentions -- to get an early jump on my Christmas shopping and save a few bucks in t...

    I Stopped Eating Meat

    It's easy being "green" in Phoenix, from xeriscaping and carrying chic reusable grocery bags to giving up meat for good. After I had tipped the scales at almost 400 pounds and admitted to a massive daily intake of soda, cigarettes, and fast food, ...

    Dale Wasserman Will Be Remembered for One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, Not Premiere

    Before his death last month, Dale Wasserman was among a handful of Americans to whom the title "Broadway legend" applied -- although it seems likely that the famous (and famously grumpy) playwright would have disdained that title. Yet it was true. W...

    Sending Love Letters to ASU for Keeping the North Central Avenue Post Office

    I fall in love with old buildings. There's that odd little Flintstonian office building at Third Street and Clarendon, whose comically prehistoric rock-and-mortar faade stole my heart years ago. For a while, I had as my screensaver a photograph o...

    Lifes a Stage, Even When Youre Sitting in Front of One

    As usual, I saw a hell of a lot of plays this past year. But I suspect 2008 is the year I'll remember not so much for what took place on stage (although it's hard to forget a production as flawless as Childsplay's A Tale of Two Cities, or one so mind...

    When it comes to constructing things, I'm not the most capable person. I rely heavily on safety pins rather than sewing machines. I seem to believe that a nail into drywall can hold up any size picture frame. Oh, and spackle is the perfect material t...

    You can't walk across a college campus today without hearing the word "interdisciplinary." So it only makes sense that Hoodlums, an indie music store with roots at Arizona State, would follow suit. Since 1998, Hoodlums has kept a steady foothold i...
