I haven’t been great at this this season. I’m unmotivated. What the fuck is going on in Westeros?! At this point, you may as well call it West Hollywood. Jesus. ANYWAY. Moving on because – well, positive thoughts. So, this week I think it took me a total of six(ish) minutes to be over the […]

It’s been a while. Hey, how are you?! Insert massive hug. Seth has been saying, “Babe, you gotta do an A and J!” on and off for a while now and my response has consistently been, “I know but I have nothing to write about.” And then last night he said, “BABE. You gotta blog. You […]

A Special Place is a new weekly series in which we’ll cover all of the special places in hell and all of the special people who might reside there. This week, I’m talking about my body (and maybe your body) and everyone who finds it offensive. If you find other people’s bodies offensive and make […]

I have been asking Seth for a date night for what feels like 17 years and for the last two months, every time I’ve mentioned it he’s said, “We’re having one in, like, two weeks!” Since we’ve become parents everything is “like, two weeks” away regardless of whether it’s next week, next month or three […]
