I love fall. I LOVE it. Especially when we actually get fall-like conditions, and not just, say, more rain. We’ve been having crisp days here in the northwest, with foggy mornings and sunny afternoons and lots of leaves crunching beneath our feet. In honor of that, I’ve been drinking copious amounts of tea and eating…

I woke up in the middle of the night last night and tried to figure out where I was. After I’d finally concluded it wasn’t a hotel I recognized, I realized, somewhat alarmed, that I was home. I didn’t recognize my own bedroom. Oy. Needless to say, we’ve been traveling a lot lately, and it’s…

I feel like the March Hare, running around in a frenzy – no time to say hello, goodbye! I’m late, I’m late, I’m late! The thing is, I’m not actually late to anything. I just feel like it, because I’m sitting here at my computer nine floors up, and all around me the city of…

Journal of a cold, Day 8:  I am still sick. The illness that has taken root in my sinuses shows no sign of dissipating. The deluge from my nostrils continues. Yesterday, I ventured out, for the first time in many days. I squinted painfully at the sunlight above. I am greatly changed, I know. I…

This week wasn’t that different than any other. Anthony Weiner got caught sexting (again). I made a fool of myself on camera (again … but this time it was on the Huffington Post! In my defense, there was a really bad echo, so I heard everything I said with a 2-second delay … and that’s…

It is going to be 80 degrees in the Pacific Northwest this weekend. EIGHTY FRIGGIN DEGREES. The weather is so nice that one school has cancelled class due to sunshine. No, I’m not even remotely kidding. I am getting out from behind my desk right this second, and heading out to enjoy the day (after…

I just got back to Seattle yesterday, after spending a week in Los Angeles with family – including my 9-month-old nephew. I have now have a suitcase full of clothes smeared with baby food and drool, and I’m completely exhausted. After a week. A friggin week. But people who become parents do this sort of…

Good heavens. It’s been a rough few days. I hope you are all well. I hope you are all safe, and warm, and that your loved ones are, too. Stuff remains crazy this morning, as it has been all week. I’ve tried to find some fun, pithy links to include in this roundup, but those…

I needed a good laugh or three this week. Below are a few links that made me smile. I hope you enjoy them, too. ————— There is an adorable little mouse that is totally awesome. It eats scorpions and howls at the moon. ————— Roger Ebert passed away last week. This prescient post about how…

  • Here it is, folks. The paperback edition of my book is out today. The hardcover came out more than two years ago, so it's wonderful to know that this story of mine still has life and is, gasp, still selling copies. Don't miss the book that Lauren Graham called "the travel companion you'll be happy you brought along" and that some guy on Twitter said was "immature and stupid." It's available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indiebound. #bookstagram #summerreading #bookworms
  • This lady. ❤️❤️❤️ So proud of her.
  • HAPPY LAUNCH DAY!! I really want to curl up in bed with this amazing novel today, but I can't - for an amazing reason. Because I'm going to be at the Lake Forest Park location of Third Place Books tonight, discussing it with the author, my dear friend @andreadunlop. Lady, I'm so proud of you. ❤️ ❤️❤️ #bookstagram #summerreading
  • Baking in an AirBnB is always an adventure. I didn't have a measuring cup for the flour so I eyeballed it, and had to use a wine bottle as a rolling pin to make these handpies. Not my best work, but @demeritt and @randderuiter seemed cool with the results, so I'm going to accept that sometimes good enough is, well, enough. 🥧🍴
  • "I hit the jackpot." That's how I once heard Michael J. Fox describe his marriage years ago, and it stayed with me. I've never found a better way of describing our relationship than that. Bells ring. Lights flash. Coins spill everywhere. Now, where's my complimentary breakfast?
  • Someone sent Rand socks with his face all over them, and he's really bothered by this but I'm gonna rock the hell out of them.
  • I told him to stop looking at the camera.
  • Eating junk food on the ferry with this guy right before dinner is kind of the dream.
  • Does it still count as photobombing when you love it?
  • Some hardcore stuff happening in the studio today. #muglife #ceramics

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

BE AWESOME. BUY IT.
