my kids

October 20th, 2009 by Bekah Brunstetter


They will run around outside and play in the dirt and maybe every now and then, eat things off the floor. Sure, they will wash their hands before dinner, brush their teeth, bathe occasionally. BUT – I have to say, I was NOT the cleanest kid, or rather, I was exposed to things (I did a lot of creek-swimming) and my immune system is BANGIN*. While others sniffle and cough, I excel. Take that, hand sanitizing monsters.

*Of course I will now probably get sick.

I very much enjoy the fact that we, as a people, invent words, or rather, they just sort of happen, as the sounds we make evolve into words. Omnipoetic. Meet: ‘Meh.’ Or: I do not give a crap. Or: I am midly disappointed. Or: I am shrowded by indifference!

I also very much like that I can purchase and wear a hoodie of ‘meh’ :


And literally wrap myself in apathy.

mmm. that sounds warm.

(Very) Hungary!

October 17th, 2009 by Bekah Brunstetter

Actors, beware! If you befriend me, I will write plays for you, and make you do awesome embarassing things. Like these poor shmoes:


Erin and Brian are two of my favorites, so naturally, when I had to write a play for the Hungarian Cabaret at Galapagos, I figured I’d make them get nearly naked in front of a crowd and talk about Urinary Tract Infections. And so, they did.


The Cabaret itself, also, was pretty stellar. Naked Trapeze! Love songs for Atilla the Hun!  The evolution of the Moustache! I learned a lot about Hungary. And, subsequently, myself.

Last night I did a fancy thing! At the National Arts Club. Fancy. The 24hr plays on Broadway have teamed up with Mont Blanc this year and sponsored a competition to give one of the writer slots to a young writer, which I think is great. They invited the finalists for the slot to come be fancy. I showed up figuring we’d be wrestling each other or something, but instead we smiled, had our pictures taken, were given 24hrplay advice by old pros, and Discussed cheese with / geeked out on Theresa Rebeck. Very nice.

Top Chef

October 15th, 2009 by Bekah Brunstetter


I have always thoroughly enjoyed this show intermittently, but on my flight to LA, I really took it to the next level and watched it for 6. Hours. Straight. Oh, the codfish! The drama! The fennel, the betrayal! The tension, the chowder! I especially enjoy the deliciously serious moments in which a tortured chef, sad knife sack on lap, pulls at their hair, tortured: ‘I just – (sigh.) I just should have been clearer about my intentions. (sigh.) With my shrimp.’
