Once, many years ago, I had my heart broken by a boy. And he was ruthless, in a way so creative and diabolical, that it was humorous. Like the time we bought a joint birthday present for a friend, and he replaced my name on the tag with his new girlfriend’s. Or the way he’d…

  Because I LOVE hearing what I have to say (and I know that you do, too), I’m launching a new weekly feature on the blog: Ask the Everywhereist. It’s where you can ask me all the burning questions that keep you up at night. Questions such as: ‘Where can I find the best pizza…

5 questions for the TSA

Jul 27, 2009
 

I’ve been reading the TSA blog, which is a dark and ugly place. Then again, so is the TSA itself. Seriously – have you seen the new Harry Potter movie? Remember the part with those freaky zombie guys who look suspiciously like Gollum? The TSA seems kind of like that. You want to tread carefully for…

This city guide probably won’t help anyone. Or rather, it will probably only help me, in a cathartic sense. It probably won’t help you plan a trip to San Diego, unless you plan on staying with my family. And while they’ll probably take you in, I don’t know that I’d recommend it. Or maybe I…

10 Countries You’ve Never Heard Of.

I love all the ways my education has failed me – particularly when it comes to issues of geography or international awareness. In some ways, it’s profoundly awesome. I can sing nearly the entire theme from “The Fall Guy”, but ask me to find any of these on a map, and I’m hopeless. If you…

  • The atrium from the restaurant we went to last night seemed to stretch on for miles - an architectural relic that now feels luxuriously wasteful.
  • I mean, any day that starts with these two handsome gents was bound to be a good one.
  • Been two years to the day, and sometimes I still reach for the phone or an envelope, forgetting that you aren't here anymore. I know that fatherhood wasn't your thing, and kids certainly weren't, either, but I still think we did pretty okay, Dad. Wherever you are, I hope it's quiet, and peaceful, and completely devoid of cheerful idiots who want to make smalltalk.
  • Train time. He leaned in and told me he liked me so much, which is good because I keep trying to eat his face.
  • Super honored to have spoken today at @hubspotlife. Was I completely incoherent and jet lagged? Yes. Did I sweat through my shirt, leaving noticeable pit stains? Yes. Did I talk about said pit stains? Sigh. Of course. But the crowd was super welcoming and kind despite my neuroses. Thanks so much to Ashley for making everything run smoothly, Rachel for being a familiar smiling face in the crowd, and everyone who showed up, asked questions, and had me sign a book.
  • This again? Heading to the east coast for a hot minute for some work. Traveling with Casey is like having a tall, shocking polite, excessively cynical child with us.
  • Coolest. Judeo. Christian. Kids. On. The. Block.
  • "Describe your personal style." Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally, duh.
  • There are times when you create amazing things in DnD for an incredibly tiny audience. As I told Rob, the deal almost feels Faustian.
  • When the delays just keep on coming but it's not so bad, really.

All Over The Place

Buy my book and I promise I'll never ask you for anything again.

BE AWESOME. BUY IT.
