– I never imagined myself to be the sort of person who’d go on safari. It’s just not in my genetics. I don’t really like the sun. Large animals frighten me. And I don’t look all that good in khaki. Plus, I have very short legs, and I’m not particularly good at running. If things…

I’m sorry that blogging has not been regular. Life has been crazypants (I think that’s the technical word for it). I promise, things will normalize after next Wednesday. Why Wednesday? Because that’s when I’m speaking at Ignite Seattle, and the crazy monkey on my back that keeps screeching and pulling my hair will finally be…

– I have a problem with mixing up beauty and goodness. I am fully aware of how bad this is. I mean, I’ve seen Snow White, guys. I get that the evil queen can be both hot and, well, evil. But I still have trouble getting my head around that fact. I just can’t get…

There are times when I have trouble accepting that I am, in fact, an adult. Despite having voted in THREE presidential elections, consistently writing grocery lists that don’t include candy, and being carded approximately NEVER, I still  can’t wrap my head around this whole “adulthood” thing. I’m fairly certain that someone fudged up the math, and we’ll soon…

– I have a little bit of psychotic episode every time I go to an aquarium. Part of me is thinking, “You should not be here. You are in some amazing part of the world that few people get to visit, and you should be out seeing unusual and unique things and not staring, slack-jawed,…

  • No, I don't need midnight pastrami. But if I did ... #katzdeli #nyc #newyork
  • Found this tonight while cleaning out an old wallet of mine. Both the quote and the photo are about a decade old.
  • I've seen my book in two stores so far, and it's still really weird.

  • Happy Mother's Day, Momma. Thanks for always looking out for me. #mothersday
  • Okay, San Diego, I give. You're the prettiest girl at the dance.

  • I solemnly swear I am up to no good. #instasweets #desserts
  • There is something wonderful about being understood. My writer's group meets about once a month. We mostly eat and (if time allows) talk about our projects. This time we chatted about my book, which was released last week by Public Affairs and pairs well with French pastries and hot Cheetos. 🥐
One of my dear colleagues looked at me and said, "Did you sign my book? No you didn't, you witch." And I realized I'd be lost without these jerks. <3

  • By far, one of the coolest things about getting published is that I get to meet some amazing writers. Super excited to crack into Jo Piazza's How To Be Married after hearing her speak. #bookstagram #inmybag
  • No idea who sent me these flowers (there was no card). But they are beautiful and smell amazing. So thank you. #mysteryflowers
  • The book is out today! It's here! It's here! Go to your local bookstore, buy all the copies, read them like it's your job. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll probably know way too much about your friends Rand & Geraldine by the end.

To Geraldine: Congratulations my love! You wrote a damn good first book. I can't wait to see what you write next. #randtookthis #allovertheplace #bookbirthday #proudhusband #bookstagram

All Over The Place

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

BE AWESOME. BUY IT.
