A more thorough summary of my 24 hour plays experience, or, that time I peed after Jennifer Aniston, forthcoming once I can grab a series of moments, but in the meantime, I walked the red carpet (which technically, sometimes, is not red, not at all) for the first and potentially last time in my life. People with cameras were literally shouting at me, BEKAH! OVER HERE! , and suddenly, so suddenly, some episode of America’s Next Top Model I watched in 2007 or perhaps years of People Magazines who wore it best consumed in various dental offices throughout my life surged through my head, and before I knew it, I was posing like a boss. Here I am with the CEO of Urban Arts, Phillip Courtney:
I only fell over a little bit and only once, and did not say anything unfortunate or profane! FIRST RED CARPET: SUCCESS! GUESS WHO WORE IT BEST: IT WAS ME.

Madewell is my most favorite store. I will do and wear whatever they tell me to wear and do. I don’t even care. Baaaaaaa. I will follow them off a cliff wearing my professor boyfriend’s leftover clothes that have been perfectly tailored to me while I plunge to my conformists’ death. They have released a new outfit that you are meant to wear WHILE SHOPPING AT MADEWELL. Only one question remains: WHAT DO YOU WEAR WHILE SHOPPING IN MADEWELL TO BUY SAID SHOPPING OUTFIT? Oh, other things from madewell? Okay, well fine.

I have been running around like an insane person all day, making a play for broadway, I have had seven coffees, I have underwear in my purse, I am running through the rain with half straightened hair, I can’t find wireless, my computer is shoved with my airplane clothes for my 6 am flight home somewhere in the theater, possibly adjacent to Jay Pharoah and a tray of old sandwiches, and yet, still I must blog. I BLOG SO THAT I AM HERE. I’M HERE MOM, I AM HERE!

Other than having to pee and nowhere to pee, and waiting 25 minutes for a train to Brooklyn for no reason: People who look like your ex boyfriend and his new girlfriend MIGHT ACTUALLY BE YOUR EX BOYFRIEND AND HIS NEW GIRLFRIEND.
Note: it was not them, not even a little bit; not at all.

Took a brief stroll through Central Park with my sister!
I don’t so much want to live in NYC again as I want to live EXACTLY INSIDE OF CENTRAL PARK IN THE FALL BUT ONLY THE FALL!

I am terrible at critical analysis, especially when something is really like nothing I’ve ever seen before. But I shall try. Birdman: a melanchomedy. it’s like a fictionalized dramatization of fears I’ve feared, thoughts I’ve thought. If you are a theater person, or a human person, or both, if you love magical realism, and / or really love to be horrified while also laughing, this is the film for YOU. ME LIKE FILM SEE FILM MOVIE GOOD END OF ERUDITE REVIEW.

I can’t start my day without my SERIAL! I am the first person in the entire world to ever do that.
HAVE YOU BEEN LISTENING TO SERIAL?
WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?
OKAY MAYBE YOU ARE DEAF*, IN WHICH CASE, THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU, YOU ARE PERFECT, I RESPECT YOU, DEAF GAIN, ETC, BUT IF YOU CAN HEAR:
It’s an offshoot of This American Life: a series of podcasts covering one story — that of a murder of a high school girl in Maryland in the late 90s — and it is quickly becoming the Thing that everywhere you are, someone is talking about it. It’s so simple and nearly mundane in its details — call logs, whereabouts, a Best Buy Parking Lot. But the simple question: WHO DID IT? Aynad, the guy who’s been in prison for it for years? Or someone else entirely? keeps you totally hooked. They keep you waiting, like old school pre-internet we have no idea what’s going to happen on the next Louis and Clark, dropping just one ep a week. You really need this podcast. Here.
*Okay, so maybe you are actually really deaf, in which case high five, and here is a transcript of the first episode. LISTEN WITH YOUR EYES!

I blow dried? Blew dried? my hair straight today which is perhaps the easiest way to get people to tell you you look nice when all you did, really, is blow hot air at your face for five minutes. I was going to present a picture of said hair, but THIS IS SO MUCH MORE IMPORTANT:
