TueNight

TueNight Storytelling, community and live events for grown-ass women and badass Gen-X’ers. Even at 46, it’s harder than you think. Join us TueNight.

Every Tuesday we deliver a small, handcrafted batch of stories by top-notch writers — tales from the frontline of dating over 40, books, movies and music we know you’ll dig, tales of people who found the courage to “come out” and be themselves. Stories of s*x, health, beauty, love, aging, family and more.

As part of TueNight's Coast-To-Coast Online Virtual House Party on Dec. 13th — ⁠TueNighters are sharing their stories of what it means to be a daughter through the lens of aging.

Kicking us off this week is TueNight featured storyteller and midlife pro-aging blogger, Mimi Ison.

“An only child who’s been dethroned” is one description I’ve read that explains the oldest child. I get it: parents serve you like you’re a princess until a sibling shows up, and then they sn**ch the crown off your head and stomp on it.

Embarking on My Own Year of Yes

This week's featured story: We're throwing it back to the year award-winning author Taiia Smart Young took a risk and said "yes" to something that scared the crap out of her.

By Taiia Smart-Young I’ll allow Shonda Rhimes to take credit for inventing the year of yes (YOY). This TV titan did make it famous, but let the record show that I invented the concept before Rhimes’ book with the same name became an instant bestseller.

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 . 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. 🙂
