The Traveling Parent Manifesto

Today’s post is by my dear friend Angela. She’s guest-blogged for me once before, and since then, she’s had a kid, started freelancing, launched her own site, and hopped around the globe a bit just for good measure (I suspect she spends her free time trying to crack the secrets of massive nutrinos). Fortunately, Angela…

The sun is chasing away a few wisps of lingering fog this morning. There is frost on the rooftops that I can see from my office. Downstairs, my husband is still in bed, still recouping from yesterday’s 4:20 am wake-up time, and having to travel to San Francisco and back in a matter of 12…

– In high school, I ate fast food nearly every day. While my colon now involuntarily spasms at the thought, I lunched at Burger King on Mondays through Fridays for the better part of my junior and senior years. And yet, miraculously, I was far thinner than I am now. It was clearly a superpower…

– On Halloween day, I headed to the Tribeca firestation made famous in Ghostbusters. That night, I channeled Margot Tennenbaum on the streets of midtown, eating stick after stick of candy cigarettes. The next day, I realized I wasn’t yet done paying pilgrimage to movie locations or obsessing over Wes Anderson. And so, on the…

I’m still at home, and my city is still covered in snow. Supposedly it will all melt today, and we’ll be left with puddles and sopping wet piles of mud, which is perhaps for the best, as that is what we are used to. Having spent the last few days in pajamas, I’m looking forward…

  • 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.

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

BE AWESOME. BUY IT.
