Last Thursday I saw The Revisionist, a play written by Jesse Eisenberg, who also starred along with the unquestionably magnificent Vanessa Redgrave, and directed by Kip Fagan at the Cherry Lane Theater in Greenwich Village. Not knowing what to expect, I was blown away for two heart wrenching hours that also had me laughing out loud more than I ever had at a play.
However, the inevitable stress has started to build up again what with some bad family news, writing assignments piling up for Contently, and realizing that trying to fund the trip to Coachella means I’m living off of rice and beans for three months. Continue reading “What’s Worth Worrying About”→
Taking advantage of the fact myself and all my sisters were home for Thanksgiving, my dad wanted to show off my parents’ new sailboat (and have us help put it up in storage for the winter).

Despite my flight from La Guardia to Midway being three hours delayed, an incredibly busy day of work yesterday, and sitting in the backseat of car for a two hour drive with a wedding dress pouffier than I imagined, I’m finally in Michigan for my sister’s Theresa’s wedding.
There was a thunderstorm last night and the server went down, so after driving up here, I made the request to do some last-minute writing and emailing at Stephie’s, the nearest coffee shop with free Wi-fi. I’m not sure what town I’m in now (am I in a town if a corn field is next to me?) Continue reading “Off to the Midwest for Sister’s Wedding”→
