Everything I Know About Sex I Learned From *Musical Theatre*

I have been a theatre nerd ALL. MY. LIFE. True story: my parents remember me dancing around to “One” from A Chorus Line when I was a toddler, so baby, as long as I could talk, I’ve been a Broadway Baby! So of course, the first person to really sit me down and teach[…]

Doggy Daycare Drama Coach

  Some people are sports people, some people are theatre people.   Hear me out.   Some people are sports people, some people are theatre people. This is a fact. And you can’t really be a “sports person” AND a “theatre person” and this conflict is borne out in High School[…]

GOOD NEWS! Congrats to the WINNER of ALL STARS 3!!!

  Hello hello hello!!!   I am *not* revealing (Ru-vealing?) any spoilers, I am just going to say that I was VERY PLEASED with the outcome of All Stars 3, even if I had to pause the episode four minutes and fourteen seconds before the end to take an Anxiety Shit before[…]

The Safety Blanket

  Did you have a “safety blanket” when you were a kid?   How about now?   I have a theory about those little things we always return to when things get tough. The favorite book we’ve read over and over, even when our TBR pile is towering. The movie we[…]

New York, I ❤️ You (And You ❤️ Me Back)

  Guys, let me tell you about the New Jersey Turnpike.   See, you never really know how much you love something until you lose it. This was how I realized I was stanning Sasha Velour in season 9: when it looked like she might be in danger of having[…]

Dead People Christmas Playlist!!!

  Ho, ho, ho! Christmas is almost here! I’m still trying to ‘get it up’ for this holiday. Yes, honestly. I’m headed “home” for Christmas today after putting in a couple hours at the studio, and you know what I’m going to be listening to while I work?   DEAD[…]

Nothing’s Gonna Change My World

It’s December 9th, and you know what that means. It means that yesterday, I spent NINE AND A HALF HOURS in the cold singing Beatles songs with tourists and fellow fanatics alike. I joke that this is my only religious holiday. Well, no joke. It is. During the daytime, the[…]

After “Before He Cheats”

  Ext. Honkey-tonk dive bar. HE and SHE exit together, entwined. SHE is visibly tipsy and stumbling over the sidewalk, but she falls when HE drops her to the ground in shock. HE: What the hell? MY CAR! SHE: OOF! Where’s yer car hon? OH SHIT. HE: That bitch trashed[…]

You Got Me, Babe

Ok I said it like five months ago that May was gonna be the month that Tr*mp was impeached. And y’all, it is just taking way too long. America is getting scarier and worse by the day. What am I supposed to do? Sit around and wait for you to impeach him? Well,[…]

Currently… in May 2017

FEELING:  Busy! I’m worried about my right hand, but you know something? I really handle “busy” very well. When I’m busy, I’m more motivated to get more things done. Are you that way, too? I mean, not always important things. Have you noticed that I’ve been blogging like, every day this week?[…]

How I Learned To Love The Beatles

I wish this story wasn’t about a boy. I sincerely do. But it’s at least a little bit about a boy. File it under doing the right thing for the wrong reasons. Sure, I’d always liked The Beatles, yeah, yeah, yeah. I’d played the records in my parents’ basement and danced[…]

I Hear Dead People: The Playlist

  If one thing doesn’t need to be said about 2016, it’s that we lost a lot of GREAT MUSICIANS. David Bowie, Prince, George Michael — I started listening to all of their songs together and realized, you know what? This is objectively a GREAT PLAYLIST. And then, Oh my God, Chuck[…]

LISTEN AT YOUR OWN RISK, but don’t say I didn’t warn ya

When do I *not* have something up my sleeve? A few days ago, I asked the Twitter and Facebook hive minds to answer the question: WHAT SONGS GET STUCK IN YOUR HEAD? See, I’d been struggling with having the hook from “Raspberry Beret” in my head for a week. It[…]

How Limoncello And Rain Made Me Appreciate George Michael

What you need to know is this: the year was 2010. I was traveling Europe with my boyfriend. And I was mortally afraid of embarrassing myself. Luckily, I no longer have that fear, or this story might never be told. Anyway… Along the journey, my beau and I developed a[…]

You May Say I’m A Dreamer, But I’m Not The Only One

The ONLY December holiday that matters is December 8th, tbh. Every year, on the anniversary of John Lennon’s murder, strangers become family and sing around the Imagine mosaic in Strawberry Fields, across the street from where John breathed his last. I look forward to this day all year long. This year[…]

Christmas in October

  It isn’t even Halloween yet, and I’ve already made a Christmas Spotify playlist that’s over 3 hours long. And I’ve been listening to it since September. I have become that which I once hated. I’m going to be a Grinch up in here and suggest that it doesn’t have to do[…]
