The nice thing about the amount that Rand and I travel is that it’s made me less fussy about things. No, really. It has. What? Why are you laughing? I’m serious. I’m far less picky and difficult about things. STOP LAUGHING. Okay, okay, fine – I’m still difficult about some things. Certain members of my…

I obey the rules. Like, always. I can’t help it: I’m from Seattle. We don’t jaywalk. We wait our turn. And if someone cuts in front of us in line? Well, you can be damn sure we will politely glare at their backs and pray that the universe will smite them for their transgressions. When…

It’s been a crazy-busy week. So busy, that I was contemplating simply writing, “Here. Links. You like.” And having that be it. But it seemed a bit … I don’t know … minimalist?

And now, I’d like to present ten pictures…

Over the years, I’ve developed a mantra. A little phrase I repeat to myself, when I become so fed up with the entire world that I just might scream. I close my eyes, I take a deep breath, and I say it gently to myself. “I hate humanity,” I say. Okay, fine. So it’s not…

Our trip to San Diego last over the holidays was marred with some heinous weather. It rained, for 7 straight days. In Seattle, this is known simply as “a week.” But in San Diego, land of sunshine and mirth, it was a sign of the end of days. People were acting weird. Like, vacant-eyed, moody,…

  • Little man was super into Rand. I can relate.
  • He was pretending to be an #owl.
  • This was the sky tonight. #nofilter #sunset #Seattle
  • I may have done something rash. Really rash. #undercut
  • Friends, @publicaffairsbooks is giving away copies of my memoir on Goodyear! Check out their feed for more info!
  • This is terrible. #puns #badpuns #punsfordays
  • I can't believe my trip to #Cambodia was almost exactly three years ago. That was when I had the pleasure of meeting Lucky the elephant at a wildlife refuge. She was a teenager, and definitely acting the part. . . .

  • Rand told me this was the first weekend in a long time that he didn't spend at his computer. We could barely remember the last time we went to Bainbridge, but holy cats did we pick a good day for it. #randaldineselfie #selfiesonaboat #bainbridgeisland
  • Dinosaurs.
  • I am absolutely blown away by @somekindofalibrary's gorgeous photo and review of my book. I'm near tears on the lightrail right now (it's been an emotional week). Thank you so much, Renée!
