  • Yesterday I picked up my James Beard Award from some of the most wonderful humans, wore it all around Manhattan while grinning like an asshole, and made my friends try it on at dinner.
  • He just walked from Hell's Kitchen to Chelsea with this cookie in tow for me. Who was I in a past life? Because I must have been a saint. #schmackarys
  • A friend gifted us this dish towel for obvious reasons. 😊
  • DnD night with @pippinwaffles.
  • MRI time. I should have clarified: this isn't for my brain tumor, but to make sure I don't have some structural problems in my hip. I'm fine. My brain is fine! 😊

  • When you find out you've won a James Beard Award while walking down the street.
  • I am married to a very handsome man.
  • Just arrived in Victoria for @#smcamp with the most handsome man in the world. Join me today at 2:25 in Salon C! I'll be taking about online harassment, and the harassment I've gotten for talking about online harassment (it gets meta).
