A Pool Hustler's Daughter grows up in subterranean America. She dreams big, hustles daily and loves her Daddy. With empathy, fascination and grace she navigates and inhabits every tier of society; sees beauty and hope and magic in all things; respects and lives by the "mitzvah."
A Pool Hustler's Daughter calculates the trifecta payout at the racetrack, hides money on three parts of her body, has an arsenal of "Uncles," and keeps a baseball bat by the front door. She values friendship, loyalty and experiences over "things." Like her father, she seeks to learn "The secrets of the universe" and believes "Life ain't on the square." She applauds the self-made and those who learn to "overcome" their circumstances. Her door is always open for a sofa to sleep on, a hot meal, or an eager listener for a life story.

Robert DeNiro, Bruce Willis, Val Kilmer and Valentine's Day RANTS

DeNiro, Willis and Kilmer

*I'd like Robert DeNiro and Bruce Willis to apologize for the sadness I feel when I see their straight to DVD film in line at the grocery.

*Bruce Willis should invest in those grocery DVD rental machines as he provides the most inventory. He could go halvsies with DeNiro.

*Maybe Bruce Willis can team up with Cybill Shepherd for “Moonlighting 2: The Golden Years? I bet TV Land would pick it up.

*Better: How about a show where Bruce Willis plays an INVISIBLE guy? Like in that movie? He could steal people's socks and watch them freak out!

*DeNiro could have a game show for Mimes called “THE FACE.” You'd have to guess what someone was saying, based solely on their facial expression.

*I'm going to start referring to DeNiro as “FACE(insert Val Kilmer Top Gun teeth chomp) MAN.”

*Based solely on the # of facial gestures available, Robert DeNiro has the greatest chances of replacing Jerry Lewis as France's most beloved comedian.

*Forget Eddie Murphy, DeNiro could have hit Dr. Doolittle OUT OF THE PARK! And he wouldn't have needed a fat suit to get laughs.

*Q: What's scarier? Robert DeNiro peeling an egg with his nail as Satan in Angel Heart? OR Rick Santorum as our next President?

*Q: Who would you rather have whack you? Robert DeNiro or Joe Pesci? Think about it now. They're both on the way to your house.

*Ok, the first person able to tell me the exact number of cigarettes Robert DeNiro smokes in Casino wins an RT!

*Q for Mr. DeNiro: Is “Noodles” your favorite on screen nick name? Do you only take roles where you have a nick name?

*Robert DeNiro: Juliette Lewis sucking your finger on screen...well, I still have nightmares. Rather you torture me with the “Fockers” Trilogy.

*Ok, just remembered “FACE” was a character on the ATEAM. But I prefer the Val Kilmer/Top Gun analogy. Val was better looking (at the time.) I hope its true he beat Tom Cruise up during filming.

*I do know for a fact that Val Kilmer keeps a pair of Jim Morrison/Doors leather pants on a wall for motivation when he Zumbas at home.

Valentine's Day

* I wish I was single and dating someone just so I could break up with them on this day.

* Starting at thirteen, every Valentine's Day, I would wear all black, drink SoCo out of a paper bag, pass out in a gutter and mourn love. You know how dramatic I get sometimes. Now that I'm older, I've totally eliminated the gutter part. That was stupid.

* I told my daughter writers and poets like Shakespeare paid homage to Valentine's Day. She asked, her face lighting up in only the way a happy six year old's can "So, Shakespeare's like you, Momma?" "Not...Exactly" I answered, though I was flattered, of course...

Goosebump Goddess

"Tell me, the dream , again..." "Well, it's night, and New York is particularly quiet. It's not necessarily late at...
