I wrote this piece about my four dogs. It’s funny, because it’s true!

By the way, here is Northeast Boston Terrier Rescue —my rescue group!

Thanks to Virginia Heffernan for bestowing an unprecedented honor on me in the New York Times Magazine this weekend.  I am pretty humbled to be called the Best Status Updater on Facebook as I hang out with a goodly number of amazing status updaters (I tip my hat to Strawberry Saroyan, Patrick Brown, Claudia Glaser-Mussen), and of course those mentioned in the article.

The question that is plaguing me is how can I profit from this?  No, really, it’s how can I use my power for good instead of evil?  No, it really is how can I profit from this….

My brother Matt telling it like it is   Leave a comment

Matt said the review I got in the NY Times today could change a person’s whole identity; how they are seen, how they see themselves…. or something like that. I wasn’t really listening because something smelled stinky in my house and I couldn’t figure out what it was.

Matthew also said protocol states you may not thank a reviewer — you may not send them an entire moving truck full of gardenias or bake them your famous coconut chocolate chip cookies or even get them a Birkin bag on ebay. Nothing. You just quietly accept the review. (But just in case anyone talks to Ginia Bellafante, please tell her that I love her more than anyone in the whole world and if she ever needs a kidney, call me. I’ll bring the SnackWells.)
