I didn’t move to a new city or a new apartment and I didn’t fall in love and I didn’t reach new heights of understanding and I didn’t accomplish anything that I really wanted to accomplish and all of that stuff. But I did see some friends and walked in the park and pet some dogs and saw some pretty places and ate good food and got a tan and ...

Tonight, I learned that my parents still actively use a VCR. My sister and I had spent the night at my brother’s place by Yosemite and had kidnapped his Wii for Family Fun Times on our return home. After a few hours of antisocial napping, I made my way downstairs to install it so we could play some Wii Tennis. Or whatever. “Don’t do that,” my mom said, as I tried to...
OH NO! I’m not wrapping Christmas presents, I’m recording videos on VYou. Dammit! Who’s responsible for this? If you want to hear me talk about my favorite kid’s books, click on that video. Also if you want to ask questions, I’m open for business. (HINT.)

Jacobs - The Know-It-All My mom foisted my brother’s copy of this book on me to stop me from my incessant moans about being bored. I am very much enjoying it so far. It appeals to my annoying, trivia-thirsty side as well as my annoying, quip-appreciating side. I have so many annoying...

My sister is 20 now, which means that all of us siblings are in our twenties. This is weird. We went Christmas shopping today. I saw more college sweatshirts than I’ve seen in years. UCSB, UCLA, Cal Poly, USC. That was weird too. It made me feel so old. I have my old college sweatshirt stashed away in my closet. To think of wearing it out during the day, other than a trip to the cleaners or...
I'm heading to LA for New Years. Officially.
People should hang out with me. You! Yes, you! And maybe you. Not you, though. Let’s go to Snug Harbor or whatever brunch place is good these days. I want some biscuits and gravy.

WELL, I DID IT. Ask me questions and junk to help me stave off the loneliness and boredom.
soliciting readers and TV junkies
Turns out that I’m here in Northern California for 13 more days. While the coziness and food and wonderfulness of it all is, indeed, wonderful, I still have this little thing to wrangle that goes by the name of sheer boredom. So, friends, tell me: What books and/or TV shows (that are available via Netflix Instant/Hulu) would you recommend?
Sometimes I feel like my life is all about loss. Oh, sure, sometimes it’s about finding people but then, months later, I lose them. Lost in time and space. Nothing more than this shadow that I think about, sometimes, maybe. I think I may have mentioned before how I have a blissedly forgetful memory. I am quite capable of letting people drift into the past if I don’t see them or hear...
