For a very long time, my Twitter bio (and life goal) has been “Mostly I just want to live inside IKEA like a modern-day ‘From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler’. Then I found out that today’s teens had beaten me to living out my own dreams. And now I am on the […]

NYC Best Weekend Bets (12.7.2017-12.10.2017)

Hello I am very over this week! But I still like the Olympics, and how I can fall asleep on my couch and wake up at 4am and they’re figure skating away! I also like that it’s Chinese New Year (allegedly will be a good year for Dragons like me), and that there’s a ton of good stuff happening this weekend, like a midnight screening of Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion (clearly our GIF theme, esp. since Janeane Garofalo is performing at a separate event this weekend, too), a roller derby party and more!

Before we launch into all ...

If you can make it out to the 2018 Women’s March, I would highly recommend that – it’s v. therapeutic to see non-crazy-people in an empowering setting, plus making signs denouncing all of the awfulness is fun!

I wanted to go with a GIF theme reflecting female empowerment this weekend, which is why I was so pleasantly surprised to see that there is a Troop Beverly Hills ...

You guys, first of all, a friendly PSA from yours truly – don’t eat an entire package of tortellini before bed since it says to use or freeze by that day, because your dreams will turn into a Yorgos Lanthimos movie – there were black cats and one white kitten who had somehow broken into my apartment, box cutter-wielding people hanging out menacingly by swimming pools, and (perhaps most terrifyingly) a flying bedazzled hat which kept biting me like a duck, and which could open locked doors and windows to continue doing that.
