It’s so nice to be home. It’s just nice. Long walks and frightened deer. My big soft bed. Old friends, Relatives and unlimited shrimp cocktail. Serendipity and gingerbread pancakes at 10,  Wine at noon. It’s just nice.

Speaking of nice, here’s me eating some chocolate cake.



See you in spin class, fattie. See. You. There.

Carefully flipping through this women’s magazine from 1939, I was happy to find that old ad’s basically were like little plays! How neat! See above: this woman is all, okay I am going out now, and the other woman is all, with that big nasty purse? Heavens no! And then the lady is like, I can’t carry my small elegant bag with my giant sanitary napkin!!! (Oh woe) and then the other lady is all, here, try this little friendly ones and the first lady is all, THANKS!


Also, I was delighted to find this:

for the museum

December 24th, 2009 by Bekah Brunstetter

Just these, and then I promise I will stop forcing you to look at things from my Youth. It’s not my fault. My mom’s making me clean out my closet.

I used to draw tons – and tons – and tons of girls in various outfits of the late mid-90s. Apparently, I also then rated myself out of 5 stars? According to Me, Me was an excellent draw-er.

oh, wow

December 24th, 2009 by Bekah Brunstetter


I found this letter that I wrote when I was like 15? to Seventeen Magazine, appealing to them for a Makeover. It’s really funny and also very sad. I kind of wanted to simultaneously frame it and light it on fire, or never look at it again, so I of course decided to post it here and risk public humiliation. I like to think that over the past 12 years I’ve managed to give myself my own makeover, and that I didn’t need 17 after all. Or maybe, in a way, I’m still exactly the same?

Grandma, I love you. I love you for many reasons, just ONE of them being the plethora of incredible jewelry you have left for me (and your other grandaughters, subsequently) to sift through. There is nothing more simultaneously fun, sad and immensely satisfying. I will choose carefully, and wear each item with memory / pride, namely the amazing old bracelet with our initials engraved upon it.


Lastly, thank you for the Mink coat, which I never knew I wanted, but Love, which I am scared to wear for reasons ranging from my deep love for Elizabeth Castoria and my liberal brooklyn-y surroundings / fear of read paint / being treated like an Olsen Twin. But oh, it is so soft. It is so. Soft.

airport angst

December 22nd, 2009 by Bekah Brunstetter

 quantum_of_solace___airport_fight.jpgI’m about to leave for the airport and I’m really not stoked about it at all, save being excited to go home. I’m not excited about lines or mad people or over-priced gummy bears or the act of flying itself. But I am trying to summon in inner brave warrior? and / or  go to a place of peace in my mind.

the future

December 21st, 2009 by Bekah Brunstetter


My phone rarely rings anymore. Is any one else experiencing this? I get plenty of texts and emails but rarely calls. It’s definitely my fault. After years of being really crappy about picking up the phone or returning calls, I have dug myself into a deep, quiet hole of strictly email communication. This makes me really sad. I miss talking to people. I’ve even NOTICED that my communication skills, in that Real Life person to person sort of way, are on the decline. I think I stopped answering the phone because if you’re in the zone, the productivity or writery zone, it’s hard to let yourself be interrupted, and even talking on the phone seems like a waste of time, and I rarely to never have time where I’m just sitting around, not doing anything, because I am just anal that way.

SO, sadness aside, I resolve, in the New Year, to call people!  People that I miss talking to in a real way, to just say Hi. (Beware: I might call You, with nothing to say. You better pick up.)

vitamin B6

December 21st, 2009 by Bekah Brunstetter


Fans, worry not: I will live a Long and Happy Life. I’ve started taking Vitamin B6 daily, because I don’t know, because I just felt like I needed to start taking vitamins? And I chose B6 for it’s anti-wine hangover and metalbolism increasing magic powers. As you can CLEARLY see from exhibit A above, Vitamin B6 does neat stuff to your insides that in turn, makes you do neat things like get better sleep and lift cars above your head? , and be healthier, and happier, generally. I am a scientist.
