There was a story on Jezebel that popped up tonight on my facebook news feed. Here’s the excerpt: Meet Noah Smith. He allegedly burglarized a home in South Carolina on Saturday night. A scuffle with cops sent him to to emergency room, where a doctor noticed that Noah had a mouse in his rectum. When police […]
Link: I have arrived, chirrens. I’m teaching a class at Hollis Gillespie’s Shocking Real-Life Continuing Ed/Writing School/Drinking Club.
I don’t believe in luck… That is to say, I don’t believe in good luck. I mean, bad shit happens all the time, but so does the good stuff. If you spend your time and energy throwing yourself into superstitions — avoiding walking under ladders and crossing the street to avoid a black cat — you’re […]

I’m familiar with how protective I am of the people in my life. My son, my friends, my family… Shit, even the people who used to read/comment on Date Wrecks… All the faceless names that I recognized as “mine.” I really don’t understand why I am so reckless with my own heart. I have always […]
Ooof. What a weird week. Moving, confused feelings, jealousy, weird date, fun party, babysitting. Seriously… I feel like I have been all over the emotional map this week. Let’s start with the moving. It’s done. I’m spending tomorrow rearranging things, unpacking, organizing. I hope to be totally in and settled by Wednesday. The blisters on […]
