Hi, you guys! I have once again been derelict in my blogging duties (blame summer, work, laziness and a DVR queue of Law & Order: SVU I don’t think I’ll ever make my way through). Today I’m excited to share my latest essay for The Hairpin, about the day my therapist *politely* suggested I try to be a *tad* less sarcastic with blokes I’m trying to snag. Not the worst advice I’ve ever gotten. Witness me mulling it over here. I adore The Hairpin (and was lucky enough to have its brother site The Awl pick it up, too), so I’m thrilled! Hopefully you will be, too. (And if you’re not, there’s a comments section for that. Step into it, if you dare.)
Hey, y’all! Today I come to you extremely hungover (or am I still drunk?) and elated after last night’s Freerange Nonfiction reading series. It was a real thrill to stand in a room and read some (frankly) really personal stuff (OMG I am an exhibitionist!) and an honor to be featured with such talented writers. It was a warm, lovely, supportive room of friends and strangers, and to the guy talking really loudly on the stairs while I was reading, I’m sorry I told you to shut up. (Well, actually, I’m not, because you were sort of a jerk, but everyone else, you were great!) Honestly, writers need all the support they can get (we’re a fragile bunch, despite appearances sometimes!), so yay.
This is a photo my friend snapped, and I think the blurriness properly evokes how I feel right now. That I ended my night wandering the halls and stairways of the hotel attached to my condo because my key card didn’t work and I kept accidentally ending up on the roof like I was in Lost or that Judy Blume book I loved as a kid where the girls get turned around in Central Park and realize it only after they notice the same tree for the fifth time felt somehow fitting to the surreal, hilarious, scary fun-ness of the night.
Hey, guys! Please check out my latest piece, on the egregious bleeping of Nicki Minaj’s “Starships,” in Heeb magazine. Thanks for reading!
Hi, guys! I’m coming to you live from St. Bart’s, where an incredible vacation got even better today, with my essay “Absolute Transparency, or Love in the Time of Google,” being published on The Hairpin, a super-cool site I could gush about all day. I’d love it if you’d mosey on over there to check it out–and poke around the site while you’re there. You won’t be disappointed!
Thursday night was Community‘s epic three-episode season finale—and I recapped it in all my cracked-out, exhausted, had-t0-be-up-at-3:30-for-a-flight glory. It was really fun! Check out the result on Laughspin.com, won’t you?
And see you in the fall, Human Beings!
Shalom! Head on over to Heeb magazine to check out my latest piece–on being a Jew who kind of doesn’t seem like one–won’t you? Shalom! (That means both hello and goodbye, see?) xo c. (PS: This cover of Heeb is not new, but it’s my absolute favorite.) Shalom! (I meant it as peace there. Keep up, you guys!)
Please check out my interview with the lovely, inimitable Sandra Bernhard on Punchline Magazine. She is a delight! (And I got to use the mysterious “this post is super awesome” button, you guys! Yes!!!)
