In the Spotlight

As a New Yorker (yes, I know I reside in N.J., but my heart is forever with my hometown), I think the most beautiful time of the year is Christmas. During the week after Thanksgiving, leading right up to the Epiphany, Manhattan is decked out like a debutante with a million fancy-dress balls to attend.

Buy a Doll, Save the World?
In the Spotlight

When it comes to Internet surfing, I’m like the Big Kahuna of the cyber waves. There isn’t a byte of information or a massive thread that I’m not willing to throw myself into (or onto, if we’re talking successful surfing).

History is filled with acts of treachery and betrayal, and even MAD magazine chronicled the often disastrous exploits of “Spy vs. Spy” for more than three decades. People love the intrigue of cloak-and-dagger, and the world of duplicity and danger seems a far cry from the realm of dolls. Or does it?

Nature or Nurture: Why in the World Do I Buy Dolls?
In the Spotlight

I have a unique work situation: It’s me alone in a room, with just voices and thoughts in my head. (Call it the “Joan of Arc” setup, without the unfortunate stake burning.) My office is at home, and I spend most of my 10-hour workdays behind closed doors, seeing nary another person for much of that time.
