  • i miss that stupid ache.

    Zach Galifianakis made me laugh so hard at a show many years ago in Aspen that other people in the audience turned to give me the, “It wasn’t that funny” glare. And here’s another example of why he’s one of my favorites. Watch this video for Fiona Apple’s “Not About Love.” (The look he gives […]

  • Dear Aspen…

    [readermail] Dear Eddie Izzard, Sorry I made an ass out of myself standing next to you on a staircase. See, Jessica really likes you, and I do, too, but I wanted her to see she was standing next to you. I’m sorry I kind of pushed her into you while you were trying to dial […]

  • up in aspen

    In the corner of this condo, by the couches, we have found wireless. I do not recommend trying to carry a stack of wood and two bags of groceries five blocks, in the snow, in the dark, by yourself. What seemed like a good idea last night became one of the dumbest things I’ve ever […]

  • Five.

    I can’t say I wish I had more time to write here, because I’m pretty happy with what is keeping me so busy right now. But it’d be nice to have more time here to write down what life has been like, mostly for me to have later (because this is supposed to be a […]

  • i'll tell you what a girl wants.

So, the show opens this evening. Last night, around midnight, I had finished performing it in front of real live people for […]

  • More Letters

    mostly because i feel so scattered Dear Handspring: I have spent way too much time playing with you. I know that you are my newest toy, but my poor webcam didn’t even get a chance to snap a neat Cal photo before I left it standing in its own lens cap. I am experiencing a […]

  • Memory Lane

    alright, at heart, it’s a cop-out entry If Lenny Kravitz keeps this up, mark my words, in a couple of years there’s going to be an insecticide commercial on television called “Fly Away.” In the unexplained phenomena category: Both of my ears are pierced. I used to wear two small silver hoops in them about […]

  • double ditto

    (insert heavy sigh here) Wow. You know, I knew yesterday was going pretty bad, but it only got worse. We got the phone call. We aren’t going to Aspen. Let’s see how I handled this last year… Great. Good to know that it’s not exactly the same, I mean, at least this time I have […]
