I’ve noticed a continual trend whenever I visit Europe, and it’s getting downright bizarre: t-shirts with non-sensical English words on them. I know that this isn’t new – there are entire blogs dedicated to this stuff, but usually it occurs in Asian countries that use a non-Roman alphabet, so the discrepancy sort of makes sense,…

Rand was in Hamburg last week, while I stayed home and watched American Idol. We were both happy with this arrangement, because he HATES American Idol, and I wasn’t quite feeling up to going to Germany for only two days. Also, I was able to learn that I kind of hate American Idol, too, and…

  From the moment Rand told me about the Salton Sea, I wanted to go. I’m probably one of the few people in the last 50 years to have had that sentiment. Here’s why: The Salton Sea is not a hot getaway destination, or even a particularly nice place to kill a couple of hours,…

  • 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.

  • 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.
