Meet TueNighter Lynne Lucas, a Gen-X Influencer and tech chick who recently slayed her first attempt at aerial yoga.

As a brand ambassador with our friends at Fly Ageless, we love how Lynne is helping our collective community of women over 40 spread the word — we're just getting started:

"Embrace the flyness & hipness that come with not restricting your lifestyle to any outdated boundaries associated with age."

As a Sr.Technical Program Mgr. for a Fortune 100, Lynne also drives tech teams to reject negative ideas about ageism, gender, or racial biases, including their own internalized discomfort — we just LOVE that!

What makes Academy-Award-winning actress Olivia Colman an Honorary TueNighter?

At 47, Olivia positively beams talent and wit, works hard (and often), and is a little sweary.

She also has a reputation for being brutally, refreshingly honest about the pressures of working in an image-focused industry:

"If someone doesn’t like me because of the size of my bum, they can f**k off. Because I’m quite a nice person to be with, actually."

Yep, we just LOVE that!

12/23/2021

Throwing it back to a year of good reads — we asked TueNighters to share their favorite books of 2021 for Gen-Xers, like us:

1. Margit D.'s fave is "The Secret to Superhuman Strength"
— this latest graphic novel from Alison Bechdel was the perfect, easy pandemic read. Bechdel explores her lifelong fascination with fitness (not to be confused with “being good at sports”) it’s existential & hilarious all at once.

----------

2. Lynn H. shared her thoughts on "The Final Revival of Opal & Rev" by Dawnie Walton — the story is told from the POVs of many characters, and the audiobook in particular, with pro actors in all the parts, feels like an old-time radio drama of an amazing book-length article in Rolling Stone.

----------

3. Annette G. recommends "Sistersong" by Lucy Holland for its glorious writing and fascinating story — set in Celtic Britain after the Romans have left but before the Saxons take over. The future of a kingdom & magic depends on three siblings, children of the current king, who has abandoned magic for enforced Christianity.

----------

4. Margaret C. suggests "Punch Me Up to the Gods: A Memoir by Brian Broome" — his story is incredibly powerful, but the way he structured the book was brilliant. It was so perfect it made me angry. Which I guess is not rational? Read it!

----------

5. For a quick escape, historical romance novel enthusiast Liz T. thinks you should check out Julia Quinn: I've read (and re-read) every book in her now-infamous Bridgerton collection of eight juicy novels; yes, I plan on binge-watching Season 2 of Bridgerton in 2022.

----------

6. Melisa W. can't say enough about Dave Grohl's "The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music" — as a huge fan I already know so many of the stories about the Foo Fighters but reading Dave's personal perspective made my 2021 much brighter.

----------

7. Wendi A. highly recommends "All I Ever Wanted" by Kathy Valentine — this memoir by the bassist for the Go Go's is a peek into Kathy's life as a rock star, but it goes much deeper than that. Kathy is an insightful, heartfelt writer who gets to the core of family relationships, recovery, and navigating the world as a strong woman.

Excellent selections, yes? What was the best book you've read in 2021?

As we wind down 2021 and begin to look back at a very busy year for TueNighters, we're turning to Benish Shah's featured story in our December Self-Care Issue for inspiration:

"My 2021 list of accomplishments has only one big thing: it’s the year I learned to embrace what matters to me, rather than letting it be overshadowed by all the busy-ness life brings."

You can read Benish's inspiring essay, "This Year, My Self-Care Was Called Framily" on www.TueNight.com: https://bit.ly/3dVsM1l .

Kendra Lendsey Wants You to Embrace Your "Midlife Flyness" - TueNight.com

We're thrilled to feature TueNighter, pro-aging advocate, and creator/host of the fab The Yo Fly Aunty Podcast podcast, Kendra Lendsey in this week's TueNight10.

What makes Kendra a grown-ass lady?

"Fortunately, I had a great role model for aging: My mother. She always took time away for herself — without apology. You know how they say, “You can’t give from an empty cup?” Well, there’s a saucer under that cup. Pour into your cup first so you can give from the overflow."

Kendra is also a motivational speaker who encourages women to embrace the changes of midlife — we just LOVE that!

Kendra is a motivational speaker who encourages women to embrace the changes of midlife. It’s not about a Midlife Crisis, she says. It’s all about Midlife Flyness.

Our Story

We’re telling tales and spilling the secrets of Gen-Xers and middle age on Tuesday nights.

Why Tuesday? It’s an easy night for a drink with a friend. It’s a quiet minute at 10pm to steal a moment for yourself. The night you dream about your second act. TueNight is your night. Sign up for our newsletter, the TueDo List: Every week (on Tuesday’s, natch) we deliver a small, handcrafted batch of great links, profiles of women over 40 and stories by top-notch writers. And be the first to hear about our live events. Which brings us too...

Join us at “TueNight Live”: We host live - and now virtual! - storytelling events around a single theme - s*x, breakups, health, money, bodies, fails, first jobs, second acts, nostalgia, family, aging and more. Of course, we also drink cocktails, nosh on good food, and chat. It’s not so much networking as it is connecting with a brand new friend over 40 — how often do we get to do that?

Enjoy stories on our website: TueNight.com. Find the great stories you’ve heard at our live events as well as many more stories from women just like you.

For your listening enjoyment this evening. I find it interested how her voice/vocal range starts out higher--more girly and sweet, but then switches to her deeper range--lower, full- bodied woman range. Madonna's voice does this, too. Maiden/Mother/Crone/ Badass Woman who knows how to use her voice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cN6rS2M3JLA Please enjoy.
My 12 year old has lost her f**king mind. She just came into my office to ask for help with a pdf file for a project...I told her the pdf doesn't work the way she wants it to work...like my real world experience with pdf files that I use and send, all day, every day. She proceeded to tell me to f**k off (yes, the words came out of her mouth). I yelled back that she should also f**k off (I know, not good Mom behavior) so she slammed the door and I could see her through the window flip me off. What do I do with that? And how long am I making the excuse that she's going through puberty in the middle of a pandemic and hasn't left the house in months? FFS.
POETRY! Maybe it can't save the world, but, boy, it sure can express complicated thoughts about the gifts and burdens of being human in a beautiful way. All that is to say: POETRY TONIGHT on Grown-Ass Lady Bedtime Stories! Stephanie Gangi will read a beautiful piece that has a lot of resonance to our times. Please join us on FB live, HERE, tonight at 8pm/ET!
OMG, I read Lauren Young's essay about Camp and now I'm totally crying. She NAILED every feeling I've ever had about Camp. I would have never made it through my teens if I hadn't found my tribe at Northeast Music Camp. And now my son is reaching the age where he may want to go...I'm a puddle.
“Beauty pageants early in their histories, some dating back to the 1920s, barred women of color from participating. Even after organizations began changing their rules to accept women of all races, there was still a lingering frustration and opposition to join.”
Anyone see the HBO documentary called Jane Fonda in Five Acts? I found it fascinating. Very well done. I learned a lot about her I never knew and came away with a deep respect of her. Intelligent, passionate, compassionate, self-reflective and now putting her authentic self first. Inspiring. I highly recommend it!
To go along with all the other 90's memories...
Hi all, I can't use my two tickets for Courtney Barnett at Celebrate Brooklyn @ Prospect Park next Wednesday. Let me know if you want them! ($40 each) Her latest album, Tell Me How You Really Feel, is brilliant and tackles everything from Internet trolls to #Metoo. Even if you can't go to the show I highly recommend checking it out. Lori xx
I think I can get down with this.
What the actual Eff? Am I missing something here? This is crazy!
And this popped up on my feed.....can we say Georgia O’Keefe?
Speaking of Fleabag... When you meet the unbelievably talented and hilarious Phoebe Waller-Bridge, you give her a wiener. 🌭🙂 If you've seen her incredible show, Fleabag, you know why. If you haven't... Get. On. It! P.S. She told me I was her heroine. What??!! Day made. 🙂
