12 Signs That You’re a Female Child of the 80s

10 Comments 28 January 2014

Traveling back to my childhood home is always difficult for me because it reminds me of how far away from my hoodI am. This bittersweet nostalgia always propels me to search the cellar for spoiled dessert wine my mother bought on a wine tasting trip ten years ago and get loaded. Or as loaded as [...]

What’s Going On With That Movie We Made

5 Comments 09 January 2014

I’ve been trying to avoid writing gobs about our film, Loves Her Gun, on this blog. Though it’s a big part of my life, I don’t want to talk your ear off about it. You all have been super supportive along the way and I really appreciate that. A lot has happened since the film [...]

Austin’s Best Restaurants That Don’t Cost an Arm and a Leg

7 Comments 30 December 2013

I’ve seen a number of Austin restaurant “best of” lists over the past few weeks, and I don’t know about you, but they frustrate me. Most of the restaurants listed are expensive, at least in Austin standards. They’re the sort of places I can only afford to eat at once or twice a year. Though [...]

5 Comments 04 December 2013

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Our Thanksgiving involved us getting lost in the woods, narrowly escaping an attack from a porcupine and my boyfriend turning 40 and then promptly falling down and breaking his rib. Because that’s what you do when you turn 40. Geoff wanted to celebrate this rite of passage by [...]

15 Comments 21 November 2013

hello….? (tap, tap, tap) Is this thing on? hi. I’m going to write a blog post today. It’s the first time I’ve felt like doing it in awhile. You see, I started a new writing job that has (happily) exhausted my ability to drum up words at the end of the day, in addition to  [...]

Me drinking a High Life at one of my favorite places- Texas Chili Parlor It’s been a both a challenging and inspirational year for forward-thinking Texans.
