Will you be in New York on Saturday, August 7? Us too. Let’s grab a beer. Lots of us will be at the The Volstead (125 East 54th St.) from 6 p.m. until we leave. There will be no sponsors, there will be no schwag, no one will make you drink a sickly sweet purple [...]
Are you going to BlogHer ‘10 this summer in New York? I’ll definitely be there, navigating the fun with my always-roommate Jenny (which is always-entertaining). But I think I’m most excited about the party that was just announced yesterday: Kirtsy is teaming up with BlogHer to create the the much-anticipated Voices of the Year Gala [...]
When it comes to creating a Bucket List, I’d like to say, although others have done this well, I’m not sure I’m ready to jot it all down. Because A.) I don’t want to think about the bucket and B.) the endless possibilities seem too vast for me to commit to a list. That said…Last [...]
For a while now, I’ve been talking about Central Texas in general, and Austin in specific. This is mainly because I’ve moved here. I haven’t really admitted that out loud to myself, much less to the entire internet, but there you go. We are moving. We have moved. I’m not sure why it took me [...]
As I’m looking over my last year’s to-do list, and making one for the year ahead, it seems that a lot of the things I’m most excited about relate to the creation of large-scale events. I have no idea how this happened. But apparently, I’ve become sorta into events. Like the Mom 2.0 Summit. And [...]
Today will be a long day full of daylong travel. Lots of miles to cover with several planes, trains, and automobiles. Literally. But it’s worth it. West Texas has been incredible. And even though I’ve only been here two-and-a-half days, it seems like it’s been much longer…it’s been quite the trip, on a variety of [...]
Last week, a fellow blogger asked me if I ever got cranky. And I thought oh, uh, a hahhahahahahahahahhaha. Um, yeah. A lot. In fact, for instance, last night. I don’t know if was a case of the Sunday evenings or because of about a hundred other little things, but I was feeling a little [...]
I’m thinking a lot about Marfa lately. Partially because it’s on my year list. And partially because I do this every spring. Whenever it starts to warm up around here, I begin to dream of wearing house dresses and walking around lazy, open spaces. No one knows why. But there’s something mysterious about Marfa. I’ve [...]
An idea came up in a meeting. Just an idea. And now it’s all I’ll be thinking about for a while.
Genius Monica Danna helped me redo The Queso. And pretty much everything left on the back end of my creaky, no-longer-in-existence 2005 Blogger platform code has been switched over to a shiny, happy 2010 Wordpress model. Woo. Fancy.
