Greeting my ex’s new girlfriend

Twice now I’ve had dreams that I slapped my ex’s new girlfriend across the face, and rather than fight back, she just nodded and said, “Yep, I deserved that.” (She doesn’t—it’s just my subconscious talking.) I think this GIF would probably be a better way to react when I next see her in public.


me: There’s a scene in this movie where Ashley Judd eats cold Chinese food in her underwear with her roomie Hugh Jackman

as a twelve year old, I always dreamed that this was what falling in love as an adult was like
Someone Like You was my favorite romantic comedy as a preteen, subject to endless rewatchings as I went through high school. If only things were that easy now.

Liz: I managed to calm him down after spooning him for an hour. And I was the outer spoon!
Jack: Welcome to adulthood, Lemon.

When my boyfriend first heard "Call Me Maybe"

Yep, this was Josh’s reaction, give or take. That was one of my last happy memories of our relationship—me grooving on the couch and lipsyncing at 3 a.m., while he shook his head in disbelief and shouted, “This song is everything bad about pop music rolled into one!”


The piercings in question—I now have a nose stud, both of my lobes properly pierced, a barbell in my left rook, and two hoops in my right cartilage.
Armchair Psycho(self)analysis: A lot of what broke Josh and me up was our combined lethargy and inability to actually do things we said we would, like buy more furniture and adopt a cat. I also wanted to look somehow different the first time I saw him post-breakup, for him to feel bad that he didn’t know I’d done this. Not to mention, in the first few weeks after, having some sort of physical pain was a nice distraction from heartache.
But also: It looks fucking cool. I’ve always loved jewelry, so to have these permanent pieces is a lot of fun.

Amanda: it’s amazing the things people do when they come out of relationships

some run off to france, some become sluts and some decide they’re going to pierce 10% of their head

Amanda is grossly overexaggerating the “slut” part—two crushes is hardly scandalous—but she’s right about the piercings.

Truer words. Er, .gifs.


My play Drinks/The Sincerest Form was selected as one of the three plays that True False Theatre will develop for their 2011-2012 The Polygraph Tests Residency! That means for the month of January I’ll be hard at work with collaborators on making Drinks better—tightening the plot, plumbing the depths of Reggie and Noah’s relationship, adjusting the rhythm, and other changes I don’t even know about yet.
I am so thrilled to be one of the Playwrights-in-Residence and to have the support of TFT to develop my work. We’ll have two public readings—one on January 21, then we’ll get another week to work on the plays and conclude with a second reading on January 28.
I’m also a collaborator in The Lucrece Project's Prometheus Mediated project, which uses the Greek Prometheus myth as the content and the works of media literacy scholar Marshall McLuhan as the context. That’ll be going up in late April.
!! I’m so excited for both of these projects.
