Two is the loneliest number

I’ve been cleaning a lot lately. Well, I cleaned the tub twice in two weeks, which is a lot for me. I’ve been doing laundry, including folding that shit and putting it away. I even vacuumed yesterday. I can count on one hand the number of times I vacuumed in my old apartment (my former…… Continue reading Two is the loneliest number

Family values

I know, I know, I’m shit and I haven’t been writing, and I’m sorry. I actually started a post last week about how cutely gross/funny my relationship is, but I’m not feeling it at the moment, so you’re spared the schmoop. For now. Instead, I give you Anxiety Girl™. You’ve met her before (well some…… Continue reading Family values

Seek and ye shall find

I saw some unsolicited advice on a friend’s Facebook post that was all-too-familiar: You’re looking too hard for love. See also: It’ll come when you least expect it, a watched pot never boils, everything happens when it’s meant to, and a million other clichéd platitudes. I would like to respond to all of those with a…… Continue reading Seek and ye shall find

Beware the Ides

I did two pretty big things this weekend: I turned 33 and I introduced Bogart to quite a few of my friends while drinking about to celebrate turning 33. I’ve had a rocky relationship with both birthdays and introducing boys in the past; both cause a weird mixture of nerves and excitement. With birthdays, I’ve ended the…… Continue reading Beware the Ides

Trick or Treat

No matter what, my friends always know how to cheer me up. The following text message conversation took place on Friday night: Me: I will not cry in a bar. My Girlfriend Not Girlfriend: Worse things have happened in a bar. You’ve hooked up in a bar. (A long, long time ago. Sorry Mom.) But I’m…… Continue reading Trick or Treat

Wolf in sheep’s clothing

I managed to wrangle another guest writer and I didn’t even have to do the legwork. When a coworker went on her first-ever Tinder date this afternoon, my friend/coworker Anthony gave her strict instructions to take notes ‘for the blog.’ Not only do I not have to write, I don’t even have to recruit anymore.…… Continue reading Wolf in sheep’s clothing

You gotta have faith

I had every intention of going to the grocery store and cooking for the entire week. I’m surrounded by no less than 10 cookbooks; I even went so far as to map out what I’ll making for which meals. Then I realized I have to come up with something to blog about, despite the fact that…… Continue reading You gotta have faith

Give up the ghost

I’ve been thinking about ghosting a lot lately (while listening to this song). Maybe it’s my incessant need to finish a conversation, or my curiosity/need to know, but I find few things as irritating frustrating assholeish as when someone just up and fucking disappears. I think it might be the most disrespectful thing you can…… Continue reading Give up the ghost

Let’s get weird

Holy shit, I had a good date! It’s been so long, I almost forgot what those were like. So good in fact, there are plans for a second date. Miracles happen people (although I’m still waiting for my water to turn into wine). That being said, we all know the bad ones are funnier, so…… Continue reading Let’s get weird
