This recession is crrrrrraaaaaaazzzzzzyyyyyy.
Amanda & I are now obsessed with this 12 year-old girl, Tavi. Not only does she write this awesome crazy-smart blog about fashion and style, she makes RAP VIDEOS about her shopping trip to H&M. Observe. Genius. I love how on her blog she’s like a 28 year-old in a 12 year-old body. She writes:That pretty much explains why my URL is so lame/ew/was-I-sugar-high-when-I-made-that, and...

Big Brother and Little Sister just called me on their way out to “Sunday Manoa” - Sunday dinner at my stepdad’s first wife’s mother’s house (say that five times fast with your mouth full). Big Brother is staying with Little Sister for a few days. (JEALOUS! I’M JEALOUS) Today they had milkshakes at the Outrigger Canoe Club and tomorrow they’re going back...
in memoriam of my soon-to-be-vacated apartment
My favorite things about this apartment: ♥ My old lavender bedroom ♥ Moving into Wife’s orange bedroom after she moved out because it made me feel closer to her. ♥ Red hallway ♥ Red bathroom with black & white tile ♥ The way the sunlight comes into the shower at about 10 am ♥ The spring sunlight falling through the green trees and fire escape and falling on to the living room...

anarchy through home decor
Furniture catalogs are all just too safe and I just want to live dangerously, in a big mess of pink velvet and mismatched colorful furniture. It’s like when I was first allowed to pick out my own outfits and I wore blue leggings with two different colored bubble skirts and three different colored shirts, layered just so. Those were the days, man, when I walked around looking like a...

Bronx Mowgli Wentz?? →
Whenever people name their babies after a place, I always wonder if that’s where they did it. So why were Ashlee & Pete doing it in the Bronx? Shouldn’t they have been doing it in Tribeca or something? Or at least Columbus Circle? Why didn’t they name their baby SoHo Grand? Or Mandarin Oriental? If my parents had named me after where they did it, today you’d be...
I retract my earlier post about the pink bed. It was an awesome idea at 2am. Not so much in the light of day.
It’s ok if I want everything in my new apartment to be pink or red, right? I mean, it’s only me. I can always develop taste later, correct?

Tonight, 27 seniors at Thacher School in Ojai, CA are reading my play, GIANTS, for their English class tomorrow. Mandatory reading!!! I’m like two degrees away from Shakespeare! The students are taught by a dashing young man, who also happens to be married to my godsister. He has excellent taste in literature, if I do say so myself.

why I need a private jet
This is the search I just put into Orbitz: Dec 18 - NYC-Kona (for early Christmas with my brother, nephew & godfamily) Dec 21 - Kona-Denver (for Linnea’s baptism) Dec 23 - Denver-Kona (for Christmas) Dec 27 - Kona-Denver (to actually spend time with my god-baby) Dec 30 - Denver-NYC (for New Years, or maybe I’d just go back to Hawai’i for New Years ha!) I need a...

Ode to the old apartment →
Wife has once again beat me to the blogging by composing an ode to our Greenwich Village apartment, which I’ll be moving out of in two short weeks. While I’ve lived in this apartment for almost three years without her, I’ll always think of it as “our” apartment. You can expect several more nostalgic posts about ye olde apartment, I’ve got a lot of sentimentality...
at the plantation home
Yasmine: Look, those people are wearing period clothing!
Demos: I think they're just hicks.
Me: (prancing up the palatial driveway) Why aren't I wearing a long, trailing gown right now?
Yasmine: Yeah! We could run down this, looking haunted.

Introducing Margaret & Helen
Margaret & Helen are these two awesome ladies who have been friends for over sixty years. They have a blog. Or rather, Helen calls Margaret on the phone and then Margaret blogs about it. Which I can totally relate to! In fact, there aren’t enough words in this post for me to link to all my friends’ blogs. Anyway, I particularly love Margaret & Helen’s take on Prop 8,...
