  • they walk alike, they talk alike, sometimes they even… (nevermind.)

    When my friend Rebecca and I are out in public, we are sometimes mistaken for sisters. In fact, when Dan, his brother Adam, Rebecca and I are sitting at a restaurant together, we look like an East Side version of the Bobbsey Twins: the boys in their ringer t-shirts, Rebecca and I in blue hoodies […]

  • this is kinda about my upper body, but really i can’t find a pithy title. bear with me.

    The other day I learned about two words I didn’t know could go together. Cashmere. Hoodie.

  • Bounce With Me, Bounce With Me.

    I bought an Enell Sports Bra, because Oprah told me to. It arrived yesterday afternoon, and despite all better judgment, I decided to give it a test run. Literally. It’s not a pretty bra, but with a little imagination, you can pretend you’re into some weird bondage stuff with it, because… well, because I’m pretty […]

  • (and the pills I have to take are blue)

    The shingles kind of make me walk around like Bob Dole. I’m always clutching one arm that’s curled up a little gimpy. I’ve got a slight tension frown. All I need is the pen.

  • guts

    When I first see the cover of Haunted on Amazon, I have to close my web browser. It is truly disturbing. When I buy the book, I keep it face-down because it makes me so uncomfortable. Whenever stee sees it accidentally turned face-up he says, “Fix your creepy-ass book.” I start reading it in Toronto. […]

    My passport photo. Is. Hideous.

  • I wish I could figure

    I wish I could figure out how to cure this staph infection, as I’m really fucking sick of taking 500mg of Keflex every day.

  • Drop It Like It’s — ow.

    If there was any wonder how much fun I had at my own wedding, the proof was in today’s doctor bill. I danced so much in those shoes that I have this. The day after the wedding the arch of my foot had shooting pains whenever I went on my tiptoes. I knew I had […]
