My fans have all been wondering… Where’s Gay?
You betcha! My youngest son just graduated from Duke University! I know, so proud of him! My husband and I are kvelling!
A wonderful COVID in-person graduation, that almost did not happen. First the graduation was ‘on’, then it was ‘cancelled’, then it was back ‘on’ again for students only.
Oh me, oh my! Can you imagine the uproar among students and parents? After surviving a rigorous four year Duke education, with a pandemic thrown in for good measure, how could you NOT invite two guests? …
The Dean of Undergraduate Admissions at all U.S. colleges are currently reviewing all Regular Decision applications for the admissions cycle 2020–2021. Good luck to all the desperate applicants!
Based on record numbers of Early Decision (ED) and Early Action (EA) applications at all top colleges, I am confident these same schools will be inundated with tens of thousands of Regular Decision applications for the class of 2025.
The bookies in Vegas have better odds for winning the next horse race, than for getting a student with a 4.0 GPA, perfect SAT scores and exceptional Extra Curricular Activities (EC’s) accepted to…
Well, it is that time of year again! Nervous and anxious high school seniors waiting to learn their college admissions fate!
Will it be Door #1: Accepted, Door #2: Rejected, or Door #3 Waitlisted?
Only the Dean Knows An Applicant’s College Destiny!
True! Only the Dean knows who will be accepted, rejected or waitlisted. The student’s academic future is in the hands of the almighty Dean of Undergraduate Admissions. Pray to the Dean!
Parents are Powerless in the College Admissions Process
1. Parents are not part of the college admissions process.
2. A parent cannot advocate on behalf of their…
An Open Letter to Parents of the Class of 2025
Oh yeah baby! It is that time of year! Elite US Colleges will begin to release their regular decision notifications to class of 2025 applicants this week.
Welcome to Gay’s World, where we have been there, done that when it comes to college admissions. We have experienced the incredible thrill of victory, and the agonizing agony of defeat.
We parents must come together as we await the fate of our beloved offspring, our cherubs, yes, our children. …
Hey Girlfriends! What is the good word these days? Did your genius get accepted to their #1 choice college?
Regular Decisions Rolling In
You betcha baby! Parents are learning which colleges accepted and rejected their offspring. As I reported in previous articles, there will be a record number of shattered egos this year. I am talking parents, not their kids.
It will be a real shiat show. I can’t even imagine. If junior does not get accepted to Harvard, what was the point of the years of groveling to get your kid accepted to an elite nursery school, paying private…
Y’all may recall yesterday’s article concluded with a cliffhanger. I was going to call my friend Tracy, AKA ‘The GODdess’, to politely beg her to find a spot for me in her class this weekend.
Of course, I scored a spot in her Saturday class! Now what do I do?
Praise the GODdess for pityin’ this poor, agin’ fool! Hallelujah sistahs! Tracy will save me from Mama Nature and Daddy Time!
To be clear, that is not a photo of me. That stunning photograph is of my friend, Tracy Anderson. …
Sistahs… Is that as good as it gets?
The Future Me
Honeys, is this what we all have to look forward to? Is this the end of the road for us?
Have you seen my mama lately??
Will that person in the photo be MOI sittin’ on the beach in Bridgehampton this summer? Will US Magazine sneak a photo of me dabbin’ my toe in the ocean and feature me in the “Just Like Us” section?
Will my girlfriend Kristin, who is turnin’ 50 this Friday, look like this? …
Hallelujah! I saw the eclipse! I did I did I did!!
Now I can’t see! Oy! My eyes! They be on fire!
A View From the Roof
The best view for this once of a lifetime moment would be on the roof! Where else, like duh!
Just imagine what it would be like to be so daring, so rugged, so adventurous at 5:00 o’clock in the morning in the Hamptons!
But wait? Would the weather permit a viewing of the eclipse?
The Hunky Meteorologist
Why should I look out the window when I can tune into CBS2 NY News to…
Like OMG! Pinch Me! I think they are gone!
Excuse me? Do you not know who I am referring to? Like you don’t have kids? Oy vey.
We might just be empty nesters for a hot second; I shan’t hold my breath.
Don’t you know it baby! Our kids always come back to the five star luxury hotel they fondly call home. Like duh… they have access to full concierge service; private chef; laundress; and a personal shopper. Need I say more?
Don’t Rain on My Parade!
Not to put a keina hura on this… Wait a minute. I know…
Memorial Day Weekend in the Hamptons! The official start of summer! The Sun! The Beaches! The Pool! The Barbeques! The predictable rain, wind and cold!
Mama Nature Laughed!
Mama nature snubbed all the Hamptons summer peeps! Honey, SHE rained on their parade! Mama nature laughed as she unleashed a torrential rainstorm of epic proportion. It was cold. It was ridiculously windy. And it was SOOO wet.
Fun in the sun? Ha! She proclaimed , ‘kiss my arse’!
A Total Wash-Out
The summer season in the Hamptons is from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Each day is a precious commodity. …
