When we were last in South Africa, I used the most amazing toilet ever (we saw other stuff, too, like penguins and spring bok and geckos. And yet, this post is about toilets). I also used one of the weirdest toilets ever. It was in the house we rented in Camps Bay, which is not too…

I was tempted to once again use last week’s gimmick – of attempting to write about the Holy Grail, but getting distracted by my fascination with flightless birds – at the beginning of this post. But I didn’t want to exhaust the joke and besides, I don’t need any pretense here: this post is about…

Arguably one of the most important relics in all of- OSTRICHES. Err, sorry. Heh. That was weird. The Holy Grail. One of the most important relics in all of Catholicism. Ahem.…

I was in the process of working on a post about the Holy Grail. My family is Catholic, so I figured it was kind of important, because the grail marks the point in time when we all should have started feeling really guilty about stuff. Anyway, I was thinking about the post, and drafting a…

Sometimes I am inclined to sit and reflect upon the goals for adulthood that I had as a child. How I vowed that I would stay up as late as I wanted, and I wouldn’t have to get up for school, and I’d eat whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. But then actual adulthood crept…

Note: I wanted to share photos of the kids from the school we visited in South Africa but I realize that I don’t have permission from their parents or guardians – only their teachers. Consequently, I’ve tried to select images where the kids are either in the distance, or not visible head-on, so that it wouldn’t…

My husband has a habit of wearing his nicest clothes around his favorite toddlers, and after I found myself scrubbing blueberry out of his favorite dress shirt, I kindly suggested through clenched teeth that he be a little bit more careful. Or that he consider wearing something less expensive and more machine washable.   And because life is…

  • Sometimes your friends get married and you have a group hug and everything is wonderful.
  • 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
