Pink Eyes Are The Prettiest Eyes

February 21, 2014

Someone just come over and put this damn Lunette menstrual cup inside me correctly. I don’t have the will to figure it out, internet, I just don’t. I tried youtube’ing it, but almost no one has a legitimate menstrual cup insertion video. They all puss out using champagne glasses or diagrams of the inside of […]

Children are like Poltergeist

July 17, 2013

Bedtime is a crap time for me. I’ve mentioned this before, but I experienced a traumatic event when I was a little girl in which I woke up to find a man cutting through my window screen with a knife. That basically ruined the whole sweet dreams situation for me, and led to an elevated […]

And Release.

June 17, 2013

Do you want me to stop? I blinked away the tears that seared the corners of my eyes. No, let’s keep going. Are you sure, we have a whole hour, you know. You can stop, collect yourself… No, I don’t want to stop. Okay, we’ll keep going, just remember to breath. In inhaled sharply, letting […]

Wooden Hands

June 11, 2013

Do you ever have those days… weeks…. months? Where you feel like you walk around all day with tears burning the rims of your eyes, knowing any moment, they’ll come bursting from your face? You don’t know why. Or maybe you do, a little. It doesn’t really matter. They are there, they sting, and you […]

Fish Tank Head by Brittany & Andy

October 26, 2012

I took a mental health break this week. I’ve never done that before, but the weirdest thing happened. Like, my body started to shut down. I was exhausted, my bones hurt, I got confused in the grocery store, my anxiety had taken over. I felt it rumbling around for a while now underneath the surface. […]

The Art of Garage Sales

September 21, 2012

I feel like my personalities change with the seasons. Like, in the spring, Andy knows it’s time for Self-Reflective Brittany who wants to do things like try out a new religion or host an exchange student. I’m pretty sure Jesus was reborn during this time, so I’m like, let’s start meditating and opening our home […]

Motherhood, Irreverence and Womanism at 4am

August 15, 2012

Did you know Louis C.K. has kids? He does, two small daughters, Mary Lou and Kitty. Why is that an issue, you ask? Oh, it’s not. He’s a brilliant comedian to whom I would give any amount of money to crawl inside his head for ten whole minutes and laze about on all his squishy […]

Sunday I fly out to Wisconsin, and thus starts the annual cycle of fear. I’ve talked way too many times before about my fear of flight, but it didn’t occur to me, until recently, how my fear of flight was effecting others. Color me selfish, y’all, but it turns out, people hate traveling with me, […]

Andy Hates Sweden.

February 17, 2012

Whenever Andy and I are coming off a rough patch, I get cocky and start putting our relationship in really ridiculous positions of peril, almost like a dare. Like, I dare you to want to divorce me and find where I’ve hidden your passport and your grandma’s ashes. While he’s all, let’s go on a […]
