Super Nerd

I grew up in a trailer in the woods. It was not a luxurious double-wide but we did have an addition built on to it so there was an extra room. We grew meat birds and to keep the baby chicks warm in the spring we would keep them in the house under a heat lamp. I preferred them living in my bedroom so I would fall asleep every night to chirping of birds and the smell of tiny poos.

I lied to a Guru (the live version)

This story has been told only once in public. It is the most ridiculous (to date) stunt I have pulled. I still cringe when I think about it.

How would you behave if you were the best in the world at what you do?

Hi, I’ll answer this as best I can without sounding too annoying. I know when you long for something and someone else already has it figured out- their advice can come across as obnoxious and pat. But I’m the best in the world at what I do and you asked so here are my thoughts: A typical day for me: …

Go do it!

I was recently asked- how do you do what you most want to do when you don’t have the confidence to do it yet?

It’s funny, I ask a lot of questions but I don’t usually get asked for answers.

For this, I have one.

It’s hard, to let yourself be loved.

…Your love

Should never be offered to the mouth of a

Stranger,

Only to someone

Who has the valor and daring

To cut pieces of their soul off with a knife

Then weave them into a blanket

To protect you…

Holy shit paradigm shift

I feel the skin around my spine splitting open and cracking away. I feel like I am getting to big for myself and having to expand outwards and this process hurts. There was no warning either. One day I was doing fine. The next I was flat on my back writhing in the grips of spiritual angst I would not …

The Motherfuckers said No!

I got some news today. News I was not expecting. I was so sure that I was going to get different news in fact I planned my wedding around it. I planned my honeymoon around it and I planned my maternity leave around it. I just knew that I was going to get good news but you know what…the motherfuckers said no.
They denied me.
They disagreed with what I wholeheartedly and soulfully believed in.
So I am sitting here thinking-now what?

A note to self

I feel your pain.

I see how hard you work.

I understand your grief at fucking up again.

I feel your sadness that people you love will die.

I see your annoyance at what an asshole you can be.

I notice your overwhelming anxiety about your job…

I met Joan Rivers (on the night I was supposed to be proposed to)

I clean the house from top to bottom this afternoon. “If I am coming home a fiancée tonight I want my carpet to be vacuumed” I think to myself. I shave my legs and armpits. I phone my best friend and leave a message on her voicemail “tonight’s the big night, it’s gonna’ happen!”
