  • it’s the heat, not the bitchidity

    You guys. I had an epiphany this week. I figured out why I’ve been bitchy most of my life. “It’s because you’re a bitch,” you’re all thinking. I understand that line of reasoning. It’s what I always thought too. But that’s not it. It’s the heat. Anyone who’s had the unfortunate experience of being around […]

  • Houston, in pictures

  • this little piggie had none

    This is the logo I designed for my new website, the project that’s been sucking up a lot of my non-work hours. The site combines my professional writing stuff with my playwriting stuff, both of which seem like they need to be separate from my blog writing stuff. I have just enough knowledge to give […]

  • THE SINGULARITY sees the light of day (in a dark theater)

    THE SINGULARITY. My first full-length play experienced its first public reading last Saturday. This was in Dallas at Kitchen Dog Theater during their new play fest. They read six new plays over two weekends. And it was fanfuckingtastic. THE THEATER. I didn’t know what to expect. The communications from the artistic directors (Tina and Chris) […]

  • Friday list (snow-free edition)

    How is it that my gloved finger cannot operate my iPhone, yet when the phone is in my pocket it makes calls on its own? It’s not like I keep my 11th finger in my pocket. (I keep it in a lipstick case in my glove box. Just for emergencies.) If I wore gloves more […]

  • (frozen) flotsam

    **For those of you wondering about the cheese enchilada class – it was a lot of fun, and I’m pretty sure I have the knowledge necessary to make some kick ass TexMex enchiladas at home. Going to give it a test run on Superbowl Sunday. If it goes well, perhaps I’ll branch out and actually […]

  • Mondays, zombies, drama nerds

    Case of the Mondays. This weather makes me want to run barefoot through the grass, waving my arms above my head and laughing like a fool. Instead, I’m inside at work. Wearing shoes. Not laughing. One apocalypse scenario I’m no longer worried about surviving? Zombie. That is, if the teenage sackers at the HEB on […]

  • hot TEMPERature

    That is the temperature reading from my car, just sitting in the parking lot minding its own business. It’s not like the car had just returned from a jog or anything. There’s even a small tree that casts a bit of shade on the hood. The temp (according to my car) got up to 106 […]

  • Galveston, oh Galveston

    Spur-of-the-moment, James and I decided to go to Galveston for lunch yesterday. Neither of us had been down there since before Ike hit, so we weren’t sure how much the town might have changed. The first thing you notice as 45S turns into Broadway is that it feels very wide open. Almost naked. It’s because […]
