I’ve been really busy. I started doing comedy and … things got out of hand.

I joined the Tell Me More stage in February to talk about bone tumors and boning.

1. Ghent Crush (fest)

Twice I almost walked over to him to invite him to sit with us, and each time I hesitated and the seat beside him filled with another patron ordering a drink.

Finally hung the zombies #art (at The Home For Wayward Women And The Cats That Love Them)

I wanted to do a #throwbackthursday: Senior prom. #tbt

The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of because words diminish your feelings - words shrink things that seem timeless when they are in your head to no more than living size when they are brought out.

Day 3: Help me ID this OKCupid user

So, I have an online dating profile. Don’t judge. I got this message a while back from someone on OKCupid, but he deleted his profile before I could respond. I need you to tell me if you know him (from… Continue Reading →

laundry

I have been going non stop today with work, so here’s a quick glimpse into my life: I refuse to do laundry until I absolutely must. This results in me leaving the house in a long skirt, wrinkled tank top… Continue Reading →

Brunch

There is nothing I like better than going to brunch on a Sunday. In my college years, I was notorious for kidnapping people for brunch. Mallory and i did brunch during the week in summer, and we would gather large… Continue Reading →

Playing a game

whatshouldwecallme: If I lose: “Whatever, it’s just a game.” If I win:

three things

1. i am typing with two hands, finally. 2. i hate it when you meet someone and immediately like them, in that “i-want-to-talk-to-you-some-more-because-i-find-you-very-interesting-and-also-kinda-hot” way, but you have no idea how to make that happen.  3. I’m working from home today… Continue Reading →

Like most women, I currently live in a society where violence, harassment and scary shit can break out at any moment, just because I told some random asshole “no” without bothering to be nice about it. Doing that is so dangerous that most women don’t dare; after a few scary incidents, they learn to make up excuses, to smile, to be sweet and welcoming, to act as if every single random asshole on the street is a precious new friend that they would just LOVE to stand outside of the Chipotle and chat with FOR HOURS, if only cruel fate had not intervened. That’s what it’s actually like, being a woman: Playing nice with every random asshole, because this random asshole might be the one who hurts you. And then, if he hurts you anyway, they’ll tell you that you led him on.
