The Selfie

July 29, 2013

Sometimes I think the front facing camera is the best invention of the 21st century. Probably even better than the segway or Bruno Mars. It’s a girl’s best friend. We know our angles and have patience with ourselves as we try to figure out how to aim the camera so our eyebrows are even and […]

The Garden State

July 23, 2013

It’s the age old dilemma. Girl has period. Girl takes wrapper off tampon. Girl drops tampon on moist looking public restroom floor in a rest stop off the I-80 Pennsylvania. Girl has no more tampons. It’s basically the plot of a mis-named Alanis Morissette song. We’re in New Jersey. We’re supposed to be in Texas […]

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 […]

Why I Care About Your Shoes

July 9, 2013

I was recently dining with friends, when one of them told me that the work I was doing was just enabling people to be fat. I was a “fat enabler.” You know, because if we give them clothes to wear and self esteem, we’re basically just encouraging them…. like really fat feral cats. Clearly this […]

The Call of the Commune

June 21, 2013

I think one of the scariest parts of my marriage, for Andy, is the knowledge that I am always four seconds from being ready and willing to move to a commune. I blame my parents. There are entire photo albums of me laying on patchwork quilts on the grass next to five or six other […]

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 […]

Congratulations, Graduate!

June 10, 2013

It’s that time of year. The time, before heading off to the graduation parties of relatives that were young, like, four seconds ago, and I sit there holding a foam plate of pasta salad mentally doing the math on just how fucking old I am now and how fucking long it’s been since I’ve graduated […]
