Dress Code Rules

School is back in session this year and already a hot topic:  DRESS CODES!  What girls wear, or don’t wear, can make or break an educational environment.  You see, without strict dress codes dictating what girls can wear, female students will just wear whatever clothes they feel comfortable in, just[…]

Immobile Bar

The group I camped with at Burning Man has – get ready – a mobile bar!!  Yeah, it’s a small bar, on wheels, that can roll up to parties and supplement the existing bar with more drinks.  Don’t you know that Burning Man is basically a week-long 24/7 open bar[…]

Greenpointing II

Four months after moving to Greenpoint and the weather is perfect.  Just right to go kick some things off the Greenpoint bucket list!  You know, explore as far as possible, eat at the restaurants you  keep saying you’re going to, and drink Bloody Marys because that’s what weekends are for.[…]

5 Fandom Friday: Girls Just Wanna Have Pumpkin!

It’s that time of year!  Time for Pumpkin Everything.  Ornamental gourds?  CHECK.  Coffee-flavoured beverages?  CHECK.  Grab your nearest infinity scarf and strap on those black leggings, it’s time to go pumpkin picking!  Not real pumpkins, hello, what do you think this is, Long Island?  Aw.  Hell.  Naw.  This is Brooklyn,[…]

The Hyde Amendment

The Year is 2015, and the House of Representatives has just voted to defund Planned Parenthood. “We don’t want our tax dollars to pay for abortions!”  they wail. And that’s where I come in. To the concerned parties:  Don’t worry.  We will have/already had your back. In the year 2136,[…]

Blog Lovin’!

Just a quick reminder that we all like some lovin’ and the easiest way to get lovin’ from me is to follow my blog on Bloglovin’.  Yes, I mean that exactly as it sounds. Follow my blog with Bloglovin

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Dust Storms

Dust storms at Burning Man.  Apparently, this year was rife with ’em.  Pesky, unscheduled, seemingly never-ending dust storms.  Don’t we look thrilled.  I alluded to some dust storms in the previous posts COCONUT + RUM + POLAROID and Tutu Tuesday, but those were minor, rapidly dissipating storms.  No, the one[…]

Brooklyn’s Best Bloody Marys

If your 20’s are all about mimosas, then your 30’s are the decade you finally appreciate the boldness of the Bloody Mary.  Clearly the more sophisticated of the brunch cocktails, the best ones come with a kick and so much garnish you can’t even find your straw.  If you’re brunching[…]

5 Fandom Friday: Fall-ing for Autumn

Autumn is the time when we can get really, REALLY BASIC and declare our love of the obvious – and the less obvious – 1.  Jacket weather  layering fashion is an art form, ladies and gentlemen.  Don’t believe me?  You must live in a climate where you never get cold. […]

How To Be A “Good” Feminist, By A Feminist, For Feminists

For as long as there have been feminists, there has been debate as to what makes a “good” feminist.  The answer is multifaceted, depending on who you ask, yet very simple, and that is, there are no “good” feminists, according to everybody, including, among them, other feminists. For too long,[…]

Tutu Tuesday

Don’t look so shocked, darling!  Why, EVERYONE knows that Tuesday at Burning Man is TUTU TUESDAY!  Don’t know how it started, don’t know why, don’t care.  Just know that I stuffed a massive tulle skirt into my suitcase strapped down with rubber bands, puffed it out, and pranced around the[…]

Fall Fell

Just days after getting back from the desert, temperatures in Brooklyn plummeted and we are in full-on Fall!  I love Fall, I’m excited to explore and enjoy the city in a way that I haven’t really since oh say before the humidity was 110%?!? Some new developments this week: –[…]

5 Fandom Friday: I Was Born for Broadway, Baby

This is the 5 Fandom Friday I was born to play!  I mean, write.  It’s all about Broadway, Baby!  I’ve been fantasizing about playing these roles on the Great White Way since I was a teenager oh about a million years ago so choosing was easy (thank gawdness, since I’ve[…]

COCONUT + RUM + POLAROID

Following a wretched dust storm (that was actually only the beginning – eye of the storm, perhaps?), walking home from an open conference on technology and the future in a canvas tent, a table of drunk, rowdy millenials sat behind a table boasting a cardboard sign crudely etched  “COCONUT +[…]

Blog Posts I Will Never Write

Hola!  I’m in the desert (eek!) by the time you read this, so it’s not like I’m blogging anything at the moment.  But for the love of clickbait, I swear to you, I will never write anything remotely close to these titles I see popping up in my feed all[…]

My Hogwarts Story Tag!

OH MAY GAW you guys I’m at Burning Man right now so I’m unable to post but am using time travel scheduled posts to keep up!  Today is usually Sunday Stealing day, but since I’m not around, I’m doing something different:  The MY HOGWARTS STORY TAG created by Danielle at[…]

5 Fandom Friday: Whhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyyyy

I can’t even.  This week we’re talking about fandom a deaths we still can’t even.  Oh, the feels.  Dare we?  Truly, dare we? 1.  Hoban Washburne from Firefly  sorry if you didn’t see the movie, but this happens, and it’s DREADFUL.  Funny story:  after seeing the movie, I had pizza[…]

Aspects of Burning Man That Terrify Me But Oops, Too Late Now

ATTENTION PEOPLE OF THE FUTURE.  By the time you read this, I will have been living out of a tent for five days, caked in alkaline dust, and peeing in Port-A-Potties exclusively (if I’m lucky): FEAR NOT!  I’m not writing this missive from a past alternate dimension to prevent the[…]

Currently… in September 2015

FEELING:  Lost.  Pressure is on now to find a job while my life has stabilized and I’m not running off to the desert for weeks at a time (Hi!  Still out there!  Sincerely hope as I write this I’m not crawling in bugs and pooping in a bucket!).  I really[…]
