Artist, writer, storyteller, spy. Okay, not a spy…I was just going for the rhythm.

I call myself “an inveterate dabbler.” (And my husband calls me “an invertebrate babbler.”) I just love to create one way or another. My latest passion is telling true stories live, on stage. Because it scares the hell out of me.

As a memoirist, I focus on the undercurrents. Drawing from memory, diaries, notes, letters and photographs, I never ever lie, but I do claim creative license when fleshing out actual events in order to enhance the literary quality, i.e., what I might have been wearing, what might have been on the table, what season it might have been. By virtue of its genre, memoir also adds a patina of introspection and insight that most probably did not exist in real time.

Characterizations: funny, well written


  1. Hot tip: Black money love! (Turkish soap opera)
    This was fun. Kudos for inventing “binginity.”

  2. Betsy Pfau says:

    We discovered Broadchurch a few weeks ago and ran through it. We STILL haven’t watched The Wire. What’s wrong with us? I watched Mad Men, real time (after the first season, which I caught in repeats), without Dan (what’s wrong with him?) I am in total agreement about monsters and vampires; not into gore or scary stuff – EVER. The world is scary enough right now.

  3. Betsy Pfau says:

    ps. Love your Featured image. Very clever.

  4. John Shutkin says:

    Brilliant categories, Barb. Really makes your lists that much more interesting for us readers. And, yes, “binginity” is absolutely inpired. (And reminds me of the great Oscar Levant line about Doris Day: “I knew her before she was a virgin.”)

  5. Marian says:

    Love this, Barb, and there are so many on the list of interest. In literal terms I guess I need to lose my “binginity.”

  6. Suzy says:

    As others have already said, I love your categories, and also your invention of the word binginity (should it be bingeinity to keep the soft g sound? Just asking). I adored Breaking Bad, but watched it so many years ago that it doesn’t seem related to the current times. I hated both Fleabag and Schitt’s Creek, and I haven’t seen anything else on your list. So it seems like we have very different viewing habits. Hope you will watch Never Have I Ever, I’m certain you would like it.

  7. Laurie Levy says:

    Thanks for the app. Might help to keep track of what we see so we don’t watch it twice (LOL). We also had never seen The Office. Our kids advised us to skip the first season when the show didn’t have its act together. It was really fun! Loved so many of the same shows.

  8. Risa Nye says:

    I, for one, was shocked, shocked! to actually list all the shows I’ve binge watched (that “e” in bingeing looks weird, but otherwise it would rhyme with dinging, so we’re stuck with it!), but yours is an impressive list also. I have not watched The Wire or The Office either. Oh well. Thanks for giving me some new ideas!
