where I am!

June 16th, 2010 by Bekah Brunstetter


Please pardon me for the next 5 days while I write from the beautiful bubble of narcissism. There is one street with one bar and 4 restaurants. There are hiking and running trails. I have a little coccoon room. Justin Long is here. There were hershey kisses on my pillow.

I ate them all.

It was amazing to walk into our space today and say, this is ours. We will do something in here. GAH, I love an empty theater, ripe for lights! Metaphors!

En route to Williamstown today! I kind of have no idea what to expect but whatever may come, I’ll greet it with cut-offs and a childlike optimism. Most excited about fresh air, a change of place, and writing this play about the Maxwells. I kind of have no idea what it really is, or what it will be, which is most exciting.

things that I don’t like

June 15th, 2010 by Bekah Brunstetter

Things that I don’t like:

not sleeping on plane because of well, not being able to ever sleep on plane, and also large german people discussing some loud german thing the entire flight, and then $60 and hour long cab ride from JFK just TEN MILES AWAY. Also don’t like: being mentally slow and confused by everything, only having 24 hours to get ready for camp (seriously, twin linens, seriously?) also don’t like not having a printer that works, and not having brain power to elegantly phrase any of this, or post pictures from CA with smarmy sayings before or after.


Getting to be home for a minute, a greeting from the baby kitty, bday cards and presents from Kilbys and friends, banana bread, good news.

confidence / arrogance

June 14th, 2010 by Bekah Brunstetter


A thing I’ve been thinking about a lot during these assorted meetings: like garlic and olive oil! Like strawberries; banana! Like Hot sauce; Hot sauce! Arrogance, confidence. What is the perfect balance? When does one become the other? To get bra-burny for a moment, I think that with most women, it’s in our nature to apologize for our ideas. Be humble. See me, being like, so yeah, I have this idea for a show, I haven’t really thought about it too much, It’s not that fleshed out, it’s kinda like that other show, I don’t know, I don’t know if anybody would watch it but….here it is. Nice set up, Brunstetter. I hear myself being this way, and decide to adjust, and come in more confidently, knowing what I want to do, and how to articulate this. But: then I sense this vibe from the person I’m talking to of: you have no idea what you’re talking about. I know more than you. I think, ideally, one most be confident, but also open to guidance, which I think I am very of both?

AND, since I am nearly 30, or 2 years closer, at least, I found it only appropriate that I purchase and wear this dress that I can only describe as ‘Laura Ingles goes to a cupcake party.’


It was kind of fun to be 3 hours behind my actual bday, and awake to a bunch of bday texts and facebook things. It’s funny now, how there are so many ways to wish someone happy bday. And: you can log on to facebook and actually quantify it, like, wow, 86 people like me this morning! But then, you can take it one step further, and actually send a MESSAGE. And a step further: a text. A step further: a phone call. A step even further: a phone call, with Song.  I feel very lucky today, and am stoked to do a whole lot of nothing, and eating, in this very birthday dress, and to try and keep Steve from buying me a new computer, lest I become a Real Housewife of Silverlake.
