Things I Ate That I Love: Ladies, Women and Girls →
MY ADDITION TO THE CONVERSATION: Note: this is in response to the N Plus One essay, not Emily Gould’s comment; Emily’s the shit (in a good way, not in the shit-in-my-step-dad’s-lagoon-that-he-threw-me-in-when-I-was-a-kid way.) My problem with the never ending dissection of the “lady blogs” (a term more degrading then any article about unsafe sex) is that any woman...

How To Make My Generation Care About The Death of...
Last month on Twitter, I recommended “Winona’s Forever Sweater,” an essay on The Awl about the ten-year anniversary of the shoplifting spree that ruined Winona Ryder’s career. “ Magazineswould never publish Sarah Miller’s masterpiece,” I wrote. “If the death of print means I can read more essays like this, then we shouldn’t care if magazines die!” Although I meant the last part jokingly, Sarah...

People need to know I’m not a kid anymore. But at the end of the day, I’m not...– Justin Bieber. Yes, his not a girl, not yet a woman era has begun. Can he rival Britney Spears’s awkward hey-guys-I’m-a-nasty-girl-you-think-I’m-done-but-I’m-here-to-become-Madonna years and become an icon? Probably not, but it’ll be fun to watch. In about five minutes...
I would have written multiple drafts for this post, but because my father jumped out of a moving car last night, I forgot to pack a journal in my carry on. I wanted to bring a journal to write down quotes from the Emily Carter reading tonight—that’s my thing—but last night left me in a daze. Without a journal, I forget everything. I need to write this now. At the reading, Carter...
New Year's Goals
Sharing these with you so I have someone to scold me if I fail. Not that you’ll know if I fail. That is unless you really know me. 1.) Write at least two more drafts of my novel and work on personal essays. Make the novel my focus. 2.) Go on more dates. 3.) Hang out with more males. (Legit, I have one guy friend in New York, and he’s not even gay.) 4.) Find a boy to take me to...
Lilo+Liz Taylor+Lifetime=CAMPIEST THING I EVER WANTED. Make it happen, Lilo. Make it fucking happen.
I NEED SOMEWHERE TO SLEEP TOMORROW.
SO. I am flying back to college tomorrow. I’m going to a reading in the city and can’t get into my apartment unless I go through a hectic process, meaning I’d be late to the reading, would have to take the train twice, and blah, blah, blah. Basically, a shit ton of white boy problems. If I know you (ain’t sleeping at a stranger’s place!), or like sort of know who you...
Tumblr wouldn’t let me post a picture of the Swamplandia! cover, so I’ll just say it without the picture: If you replace the alligator dynasty with my family’s pet store and the swamp with my hometown, HollyHOOD, my life is Ava’s. But basically, if you’re from South Florida, this is your life.
What's More American Than The Fourth of July?...
(I wrote this essay last summer, but as TotMom resurfaces I think it’s fitting to resume this conversation. As Google News’s current stream shows, America’s still obsessed with the TotMom Killer.) According to the some mothers traveling to Orlando, Florida to attend the Casey Anthony murder trial have cited their “passion for Caylee…a beautiful, young child murdered by her...
It’s crazy that guys have touched my prostate but don’t know my name.– A male reader in an email detailing his wild experiences at gay clubs (via tracyclark-flory) I would be this reader, AKA in 2012 I will no longer be going to gay clubs. OKAY, I’ll totally be going to gay clubs; I’ll just start THINKING before I act. Also, I should probably write an...
