Sorry. Busy for the foreseeable future.
Anonymous asked: First date of 2014 last night and I accidentally stood the guy up due to a mix-up about the location. Instead, I spent the night alone at a pub, looking fresh-to-death, drinking Guinness, and writing. I felt like Hemmingway. I also felt talented and beautiful and powerful. My first date of the year ended up being a date with myself, and it was FANTASTIC. Just wanted to tell you about it because whenever I'm brave and amazing I think of your blog. You inspire me to do stuff like that. Thanks.
Awesome. So awesome. BRB, doing the same thing.
messily asked: Based on your playlist, I think we may have the same mom.
What is is about women who got pregnant in the 80s and Genesis?
Anonymous asked: Hi, I was wondering if you could post the link to your Spotify playlists. Your taste in music is pretty awesome, and also your blog. Thanks.
Hah, thanks! Here’re some links to my favorite playlists:
mom’s car circa 1993: literally a re-imagining of me at 7 years old in the passenger seat, going to the mall with my mom in Ohio.
evisceration: a breakup play-by-play from passion to desperation to binge-drinking to empowerment to forgiveness to personal joy
yes please: my own musical pep talk
is this how we do it?: Montell Jordan, Boyz II Men, Coolio, En Vogue… you get it.
And I’m working on my playlist for this Spring now.
I saw this woman live tonight at the Natural History Museum and she sort of bewitched me. One of those increasingly rare times that artists are a million times better than their recordings can convey.
I made a playlist called “mom’s car circa 1993” because I was feeling nostalgic.
And now I’m feeling awesome.
Sweater, skirt, and jacket were all bought secondhand. Huzzah.
And those shoes are from Wife, that doll. We’re all still bare-legged in LA, spoiled rotten.
