Linda Lou

My Blog Circle:

Originally from Albany, NY, I came to Las Vegas in 2003 by way of Wyoming and Utah. I've been married twice, have two grown kids (both singer-songwriters), a 12-year-old grandson and a granddaughter born last April.

In October 2009, after querying agents for two years, I decided to self-publish my memoir, Bastard Husband: A Love Story. It’s a chronicle of my first year alone in Sin City after a midlife divorce and how I transitioned from being sad and miserable to trying stand-up comedy for the first time at age 46. My book was the basis for my one-woman show, “D Words: The Funny Side of Dating, Divorce and Other Delights,” which ran at the Alexis Park Resort, just a stone's throw from the Las Vegas Strip.

In addition to writing, I love to speak and have presented on a variety of topics, mostly on writing and the creative process, and building self-esteem after age 40.

my VN interview

How did you get to where you are now?

The best way to answer this is to tell you to read my book!  It's all in Bastard Husband: A Love Story, an autographical account of my first year alone in Las Vegas after a mid-life divorce. You'll learn some back story and see how I transitioned from being so miserable even Jesus would cross the street if he'd seen me coming to performing stand-up comedy for the first time at age 46.

How do you see yourself differently now than you did 10 years ago?

I can't believe I'm the same person!  Did I think 10 years ago that I'd ever be an author, a stand-up comic, and have my own one-woman show a stone's throw from the Las Vegas Strip???  You never know where life will lead you!

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Who knows?  Some place better than I can possible imagine!

Dear Younger Linda,

Your hair is going to look like crap your entire life.  And starting around age 35, it's going to cost a fortune in hair dye.  Buy stock in L'Oreal now.

Love,

Present-day Linda

P.S.  I know you thought Guiding Light would be on forever, but alas, those bastards at CBS went and cancelled it. Watch every episode while you can.

Super Bowl Sunday… let’s have a gay old time!

Here's a little Super Bowl Sunday post for those of us who'd prefer to do just about anything than watch a football game. And it's so. not. politically correct.  But pretty damn funny, if I do say so myself.

Why are we so hard on ourselves?

Those of us in a happy relationship look at our beloved and see nothing but perfection.  Why can't we see the same in ourselves? (And whether we're in a relationship or not.)
