Hello, friends.


I feel like I owe you a real post.

Like, something more than yet another Dear ESB (though there are plenty of those coming... don't worry).

Should I fill you in on what I've been doing? Just finished a casting gig for that pretty cool fashion-related reality TV show. Pitching one film project, madly drafting a new draft of another.

Life is pretty good, you guys. Lately I've been feeling like an honest-to-god writer. (Though I'm breaking one of my own rules by talking about it here. Rule #10: Stop talking about writing and write.)

Weirdly, when things are going well in other realms, it makes me clam up on the interwebs. I'm always more inclined to blog when I'm avoiding doing something else.

But there's nothing to avoid at the moment. There's just me, tapping away on my laptop. Watching American Horror Story: Coven with my adorable husband. Making lentil soup. Going to yoga.

Whoops I just broke another rule: DON'T BE THAT ASSHOLE WHO TALKS ABOUT GOING TO YOGA




OMIGOD I'M AN ASSHOLE. I'M A BORING BORING ASSHOLE



























You are all unsubscribing right now, aren't you?? Shit.

  1. i was just thinking this morning that the american horror story phone-booth ad with the girls and the snake is the dirtiest thing i've seen in this city in years. years!

    but it's not as dirty as yoga.

    2. Oh thank fucking god. I was just going to comment saying that turning my mental image of ESB into Anne Hathaway broke me.

      Moar kaftans though yeah?

    3. no worries, i don't have a pixie cut either. that was kidchamp describing herself.

    5. I picture ESB like Daria's friend Jane. Just kidding. Sort of.

    6. Wait, black skinnies?! Have we got you on board the skinny jeans train, or is this just more of Lauren describing herself again?

    7. I know what you looks like! Hee hee, lucky me! I'm laughing at the idea of you as described above. xox S

    3. JL looks a leettle beet plasticy, though, don't you think ? it breaks my heart. I'm debating watching this season ... the ads (aside from the one depicting a woman with pins sticking out of her) looked kind of hokey.

  5. Yes! More of this! I don't know why I like it, but I like it.

    2. We *did* get a really sweet toaster.

    3. I was thinking more along the lines of the tiny home's bookshelf, but a sweet toaster, eh? I'm curious!

      Delete
    4. I WANT TOASTER NO0Z.

      no really though. as soon as I move into the Tiny Apartment (this week! geeks.), I am going toaster oven shopping and it is the one thing keeping me going.

      ♥ boring boring asshole

  10. I lurve your personal posts. you're so secretive that it's super stalker-style satisfying. I know that makes me fucking insane.

    hey! remember Glitter Gate, when people found out YOUR NAME?

    ReplyDelete
  11. also, it's been like 20 years since I've commented. makes me feel kinda sullied and unusual. must remedy.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Dude, post your ten writing rules. And also yeah, the tiny house, please.

    ReplyDelete
  13. finally. i'm not interested in the dear esb posts at all. i'm only interested in you (and you should not be so humble as to think your readers won't be interested in the real you too). maybe i should just email you one of these days, and stop loitering on your blog.

    p.s. saw you dad last weekend at thanksgiving

  14. I love the dear esb posts. I love your snark. You are gifted with words, but since I like you so much there's room for simple truths and plain speaking.

    Signed, disgustingly sincere, Lisa

  15. I just want more TV recommendations. And jumpsuits.

  16. "I'm always more inclined to blog when I'm avoiding doing something else."

    yes, Lady. I made a bunch of lists this summer and forgot to update the list posts because I was actually doing things instead of making lists about doing things.

    This comment is in avoidance of something, I'm sure.

  17. It was really the comment about lentil soup that rubbed me the wrong way. JK. xoxo
