how to make your boyfriend do whatever you want

December 21st, 2014 by Bekah Brunstetter

A few months back, man friend and I were lounging about, waxing poetic about cobblers, brainstorming bold and innovative kinds, and landed on, WHAT IF, just hold on a second, hear me out, WHAT IF, one were to combine a snicker doodle cookie AND peach cobbler.


Just…no questions. Just make it.  Recipe Here. Serve with vanilla bean ice cream, and bask in the glory of your INFINITE POWER.

Sure, I perhaps grumble the tiniest when I pay my dues to the Writer’s Guild (wait — have I paid my dues lately? I should pay my dues. SORRY, THE GUILD!) but it is 100% worth it once December rolls around and the screeners start coming in, and you bring them all home with you for Christmas, and suddenly, to your Dad and brothers, you are the GREATEST PERSON ALIVE. Going to the movies is great but also there are the annoying things like ‘parking’ and ‘lines’ and ‘other human beings.’ This way, we get to screen the latest flicks from the comfort of my Dad’s manden buried beneath seasonal throws. THANKS, SANTA GUILD!

when you get your friend a Superman Onesie for Christmas it is very important that you try it on first JUST TO MAKE SURE IT’S NOT BROKEN.

(….It was not broken.)

what the fudge color is this?

December 18th, 2014 by Bekah Brunstetter

Behold, my seasonal Christmas sweater from Target which I just discovered has a mysterious, grape colored, Africa shaped stain on the back!

In my mind, it is Red, the Red of wreath ribbons, the red of candy cane stripes, the red of Santa Claus, of holly berries, of ornaments. BUT PEOPLE KEEP TELLING ME IT’S ORANGE.

ink, still

December 17th, 2014 by Bekah Brunstetter

Today, on things of little consequence: I’ve been rolling with the wee moleskin calendar for years and years. This year, I thought to myself, next year, I will be a person who uses their phone as a calendar, like many humans do, so I never have to say, I don’t know if I can do this or that, I have to look at my calendar, which I don’t have right now. I would instead always have all of my commitments right in front of me, in my pocket, in my phone, snuggled up with contacts and pictures of sandwiches and showtunes and mysterious Notes that just read ‘flat liners?’ and ’31055678990′ and ‘Peter’s friends.’ I really wanted to be that person, organized, digital, paperless. But then I tried to put something in my robot phone calendar, didn’t like it, and so then I caved. I’m going old school calendar again in 2015, paper and ink, because I still want to write things down, I want to take pen to paper and  smudge it with my hand, because I want to spill wine on it,write ‘DENTIST!!!!!!’ Then cross it out and then write DENTIST!!!!!! again.

…But I shouldn’t / should?

December 16th, 2014 by Bekah Brunstetter

All over the news this AM were skiers gearing up to shred some snowgnar in NorCal, on beds of fresh snow, since it’s been raining east coast style here, take THAT, the  drought, and I thought to myself, for perhaps the first time ever, HEY SKIING! I SHOULD DO THAT, THAT LOOKS FUN!, and then I remembered that the one other time I went, in high school,  I railed down a bunny slope with no idea what to do with my limbs and slammed into a toddler, whose mother then yelled at me, GET OFF THE SLOPES!  But, in the last year, I have surprised myself with the shredding of the water-gnar, which I never thought I’d do. And I ask you: what is snow, but frozen gnar?

I have a problem. I am addicted to making and decorating Christmas cookies. I approach it with the same obsession and mania and precision that say, a heroin addict might approach their Fix. It settles me.

Worse things I could be addicted to:

- heroin

- drinking paint

- pony play (in which you dress up like a pony and feel as if you’ve found yourself and let people ride and pet you)

- a certain TLC show called My Strange Addiction in which people are addicted to things like drinking paint and pony play which I am not addicted to at all

So fortunate to get to break story and take names and also make names up with these fine people every day. Also, we clean up GOOD!

this christmas, I

December 12th, 2014 by Bekah Brunstetter

am an 85 year old woman and I could not be happier about it.


- I asked santa for warm socks and slippers and hand lotion.

- all I want to do is bake and then bake more.

- the inside of my head is 75% Oh Come All Ye Faithful, over and over.

- last night I got home and my Bing Crosby christmas record had arrived and I leapt with joy, just a little bit, but just enough to pull a muscle and hit my leg on a chair. I then dropped the record.

- Tonight manfriend and I are going to make a gingerbread house and I have potentially never been happier about anything in all of life.

- I want to nap for ten years.

- I just googled Bed made of Chicken Pot Pie (note: there is such thing (YET.))
