I write a lot. (Sometimes it gets weird.)

You might know me as that girl who wrote about Barbie wanting to be a Computer Engineer and then suddenly it was on GMA and NPR and Mattel issued an apology.

Or perhaps you know me as the one who had that one terrible pre-natal massage that turned me into an urban legend.

But there’s more. I have written five books, and on this site I used to write a lot about roller derby, cats, and the crazy-making world of working as a writer.

My most wonderfully nerdy claim to fame is being listed in the OED under “Muffin Top.” (Not as a physical example.)

Perhaps you’re old-school-on-the-Internet enough to remember me as the one who got Anne Heche internationally angry when I did a parody show of her autobiography.

I started pamie.com in 1998, and while I did an admirable job of keeping this place updated regularly, once I had a kid plus a writing career, my time for blogging diminished considerably. I am grateful for this space and the relationships that formed from here. I used to run the Dewey Donation System with the wonderful David T. Cole, but when we stopped having time to surprise libraries with books Dave deleted the whole thing because he’ll never understand my need to hoard the internet.

Today I write in feature animation while juggling various tv, film and book projects I hope will one day see the light. I so rarely get to talk about them because of contracts, which is why I like doing panels, festivals, podcasts, coffee meetings… basically any place where I’m asked to sit down and talk too much.

    I do miss your writing (and Samantha Who and TWOP). I also understand that babies eat all. your. time.

    Take care of yourself.

  2. Erin

    I recently found a tiny hand (albeit plastic) at the fair in a vendor booth and I grabbed it and was all “can I have this??!!” They probably thought I was crazy, but I had this flashback from your tiny wooden hand post from years ago and was swamped with nostalgia. You were the first “blogger” I ever read, and i can’t believe my sister found you! After I jogged her memory of course! Today is a good day! :) thank you for the continued laughs!

  3. Wendy

    So, so happy to find you! What with the world just now “discovering” Gilmore Girls and all, I couldn’t help but remember your excellent, funny writing and wonder what you were up to. Yay, me!

  4. Katherine

    Glad to see this little update. Hope all is well, thanks for many years of entertainment! (Bad poetry posts were always a personal favorite)

  5. Laura

    I almost drove off the road when they announced you as the Special Guest on “Gilmore Guys”! It was probably the best podcast they have done. You are just as smart and funny as back in the TWOP Recaps. Thank you for making me laugh today.

    • Thank you! I had a blast on that show.

      And I couldn’t believe how the memories flooded in as soon as I heard the theme song. I spent some formative years writing about those girls.

      (Please watch the road.)

    I’m old school. I keep checking back. I enjoy the stories, humor and perspectives. I’ve rallied for your causes and reveled in your celebrations of life, love, work and play.

    Keep hoarding the internet and reporting it all.

    I think there’s a bunch of us standing by.

  7. I love writing and still learning how to writing in english, because Iam not english my language.. How to learn and good writing in english Pamela? Your writing is very nice..

  8. Okay Pamie, If you check out your reviews (which I totally would if I had any) then please check out my review of “Going in Circles” that appears on Scribd’s. God is it great! Ummm your book, not my review. Well actually my review was pretty kickass – right before I either got cut off or cut myself off (I type mostly on a Kindle Fire so please cut me some slack) I quite simply loved the book, I am a huge fan (noooo I am NOT fat thank you) of Roller Derby and as I mentioned I am a back door relative of Heidi (Dr. No No) Hendrickson of European Women’s Roller Derby fame. I’m also on Hospice – so I better write this quick (ha ha a little Hospice Humor). Anyway thats what brought me to your book – not the whole “well hell i’m dying maybe this will make my lif SEEM longer thing. But that I promised myself not to read any “crap” anymore. Your book was not crap Pamie. Actually I am a struggling author myself. I know isn’t freaking everyone? Well I did publish an exciting piece on network cabling awhile back, so there’s that. Anyway I only mentioned the writing so that if you ever get feeling sorry for your poor five books published ass you can skip getting sloppy drunk (again!) And tell yourself “Well at least I’m not that freaking dying guy who hasn’t published dick!” (I’m hoping that this is how you talk while sloopy drunk – but I am just guessing) Really, I loved this one and your ability to put together such wonderful paragraphs and pages is amazing. Please forgive me for stealing a few of them as I can’t put together much in the way of good writing at all. You are a true talent and I wish you tons of success (not that you need it) So if you were scheduled to die before Christmas (God that is sad – i’ve never written it before!!! ) what would you recommend I read next??? You can answer me on my super secret email address. I can give you my Nurses and Heartland Hospices numbers and stuff so you will know I’m real and not some si k bastard telling you this stuff.

    Thanks Pamie – you rock!!!!!
