Head over Heels

I didn't do a lot of exciting things this summer, but I did take three different day trips to see my good friend Jim Magruder's new musical, HEAD OVER HEELS, on Broadway. It's hard to describe, but trust me: It's great--well worth the journey. This Vulture review captures the musical's exuberance well.


look alive out there

It's rare for a book to truly make me laugh out loud, especially when I'm unfamiliar with the author. But Sloane Crosley's LOOK ALIVE OUT THERE was so funny/real/human. I was reminded of the book today when I went to renew my domain name. One of the essays in this collection tells the story of what happened when Crosley forgot to renew hers--with disastrous/costly/hilarious results.


Art Deco ice 

Ice art found on my windshield one morning this week.

Art Deco pattern, I thought.

Peacock feather, said a friend. 


Santa Embarks on a New Continent

Happy holidays, everyone. Here's to new continents--and packs that are full but not unmanageable.


Level Up

I know other fiction writers can relate: You've got an experience/observation/detail from your own real life that demands to be worked into something you write someday. That was how my long-ago smoothie-making job was for me, and this is the (very) fictionalized result. Thanks to the West Texas Literary Review for publishing it.
