I’m still weirded out when I’m asked to do interviews. I still feel like, even after all these years, that the blog (and even my book) are sort of a small, insular thing, and when people have heard of them, I find it oddly confusing. It’s like a stranger walking up to you and talking…

Friends, I want you all to know: I haven’t just been neglecting the blog. I’ve also been going on political rants on podcasts, pitching my work to various publications (some of which actually publish my stuff. Thank god for drunk editors), and crafting post-apocalyptic tweets in the style of some of my favorite playwright/composers. As…

I’m afraid of many things. I blame my mother.   She was utterly convinced, from the time I was born, that the entire world was out to get me (it didn’t help that I was named after a relative who had died tragically young). She concluded that the best way to keep me alive would…

Today’s post is the exciting conclusion of our snorkeling adventures on the Outer Reef. Don’t forget to read Part 1. – Our seaplane had just landed in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef.

  • I have lamented the existence of blue M&Ms (and mourned the loss of my beloved tan candies) for a long time. I've been systematically eating only the blue ones to try to return to my beloved 80s palette, and we're almost there.

#bringbacktanM&Ms
  • We may have gotten a little drastic at the salon today and I'm so delighted. I forgot how much I love having short hair. ❤️💇‍♀️
  • Okay, so maybe this unexpected cameo had us cracking up and also screaming at the TV.
  • Whirlwind trip with Captain Twinkly Eyes now over. So excited to write about the amazing shows we saw. Thank you for a wonderful time, @osfashland! See you again very soon.
  • Last show of the weekend, and the third in 24 hours. Phew! Thank you, @osfashland. #hairsprayosf
  • Me: Are you cold? Do you want to borrow my giant scarf?

Him: Yes. (Minutes later he started singing American Woman because he apparently knows that meme.)
  • Show #2. Thanks, @osfashland. We're so excited for Cambodian Rock Band. The energy of opening weekend is just so magical.
  • Me: "I want to do an Instagram style vignette with our @osfashland tickets." Him: "I want to be in it." #cambodianrockband #osf2019 #oregonshakespearefestival
  • It begins! So excited for opening weekend of this season's Oregon Shakespeare Festival!
  • My brother keeps using his phone's autoresponses to reply to texts and the niceness is so out of character it alarms me.
