This Post is Literally Unique

July 1, 2015


  Anyone who has ever tried to read Shakespeare in the original English, must be aware that the language (any language) is always changing. Life in the Boomer Lane’s mother-in-law left Turkey decades ago and took all of her language with her. While she was absent from Turkish soil, the Turkish language wasn’t. For that […]

My Life in Front of the TV

March 12, 2015


  For many years, Life in the Boomer Lane smugly told people that she didn’t watch network TV. She limited her TV viewing to shows on the Discovery and History channels (if religion consisted solely of archaeological hunts for the “real” Jesus and other mysteries of the Bible, LBL would be on board) , with […]

The Dress

March 2, 2015


A recent and ongoing phenomenon around the world is the reaction people have had to “The Dress.”  Most of you who are reading this will now sigh and say, “Ah, The Dress.” Those readers who have been living in their bedrooms because they have run out of clean underwear, may not be aware of what […]

Sales are up 47%, and customers are agitating for even more bountiful booty.  Booty Pop hears them, and […]

Stalking and Being Stalked

November 10, 2014


  It’s taken awhile for Life in the Boomer Lane to notice that she is being stalked by products she has searched for online.  There are, apparently, companies, most likely founded and run by recently toilet-trained tots, whose job is to imprint whatever LBL searches for and to then cause those items to appear on […]

Kanye, Kats and Kontroversy

October 27, 2014


Let’s be clear, right off the bat: This is neither a post about cats nor about Kanye.  This is, however, a post about what happens once one writes a blog post that may be less-than-favorable, albeit satiric, about American icons. Let’s also be clear about something else: Life in the Boomer Lane is non-aggressive to […]
