This week's TueNight Obsessed: We're thrilled to feature a guest post by TueNighter and lead singer of The Lunachicks, Theo Kogan!

In her hysterically touching post, Theo shares her love for friend, comedian and TueNight fave Murray Hill ❤️

A self-proclaimed "hardest-working middle-aged man in show business", Murray currently stars on three television shows:

Bridget Everett’s "Somebody Somewhere", Amy Schumer’s "Life & Beth" ((both have been featured in our newsletter's "Weekend Watch") and Paul Feig’s brand-new network show, "Welcome to Flatch".

The world may be going to hell in a handbasket but thank goodness we have Murray Hill! I’ve known and adored Murray for many years. I’ve seen him on countless live NYC stages, including as our MC at Persisticon (which I co-founded). Not only am I thrilled for — and proud — of my friend, I am...

We had such a great chat with psychotherapist and author of "How To Break Up With Your Friends" Erin Falconer about midlife friendships.

Our biggest takeaways:

— Margit and Erin discussed how setting boundaries can actually nurture friendships.

— We learned how to identify friendships that give us energy rather than take energy away from us.

It was a really insightful chat — in case you missed it, you can catch the FULL replay here: https://tuenight.substack.com/p/video-how-to-break-up-with-your-friends

Friendship Breakups Don’t Get Any Easier in Our 50s

In this week's featured story: Margit writes about how (after nearly two years) she's working through losing a really good friend... it's never easy...

"I anticipated that after some time we’d reunite and talk about it; I’d apologize again and we’d get to the crux of why we had an impasse in the first place. But, no. Stony silence."

We don’t talk enough about friendships — especially as women in midlife who have accumulated (or released… or let drift apart) so many friends.

Read more about how "Friendship Breakups Don’t Get Any Easier in Our 50s" featured in this week's substack: https://bit.ly/3IPmwoM.

Let's talk about it — have you let go of important friendships? How did you resolve a rift with a good friend?

#GenX #GrownAssLadyStorytelling #TueNight

A few years ago, just as the pandemic started, I lost a really good friend. She didn’t die, but she might as well have. The grief was real.

We're proud to feature TueNighter, pro-aging advocate and influencer Patti Roberts in this week's TueNight10.

What makes Patti a grown-ass lady?

"Acknowledging that I am the master of how I receive this life. Changing my perspective changes the narrative."

Patti is celebrating her 56th birthday...all year long...and defying ageism norms on the regular — we just love that!

Scroll through to see a few of their responses — someone bought Margit a lap dance!

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 fu***ng 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. 🙂
