My NightmareDream Come True

October 25th, 2011 by Bekah Brunstetter

This couple met on a Delta flight from New York to Chicago last year – and yesterday, he proposed to her over the flight attendant’s intercom while the plane was en route. And naturally, she said yes (if she didn’t concede, he could have been all – okay then I HAVE A BOMB!!!!!)  and Delta gifted them with free roundtrip tickets to the honeymoon spot of their choosing, so I felt like  watching the clip of it happening 4-5 times and crying was naturally a really good idea.

The caveat to losing some chub is that your pants collection, that you’ve spent years cultivating, which is super hard because it’s so hard to find pants (WHY IS IT SO HARD TO FIND PANTS) goes entirely out the window, and you must start from pants-scratch. I think shopping in numbers can be dangerous. Usually, you should just go it alone. Shopping is crazy and you must get tunnel-visiony. You feel real vulnerable and alone as you confront the reality of your shape. But if I’m going to have a shopping buddy, sister Carrie is a perfect candidate. Please note our open dialogue about skinny jeans v. bootcut, and our Picasso at the Beach matching stripes.

Sometimes, it’s Fine

October 23rd, 2011 by Bekah Brunstetter

We all have a different relationship with  Soda. A different way in which we grew or didn’t grow up with it.  Me, I like to judge people who drink it while secretly pining after sparkling fruit punch. We never had it in the house growing up – I’d only get it from the vending machines at Swim Practice or after school where usually your dollar wasn’t flat enough or something and the machine wouldn’t take it and this was pretty much the end of the world.  So denied soda, so traumatized, I spent my freshman year of college drinking Dr. Thunder, a Dr. Pepper of the Sam’s Club variety, like it was water, and gained approximately 117 pounds. And then – I swore it off. But EVERY NOW AND THEN – see colon this morning – I just NEED one.  As if possessed I marched straight to the Bodega, grabbed a can and stood on the corner drinking it, smiling and ahhh-ing like a commercial, like I invented it.

Which I didn’t.

I did however invent passive aggression, double sided tape, and when you put a little grapefruit juice in seltzer water.

If Poverty* is Wrong

October 22nd, 2011 by Bekah Brunstetter


* Note: in no way is Bekah Brunstetter actually claiming that she is living below or near any sort of real poverty level, but rather, wanted to make fun of herself for eating microwavable Easy Mac. Bekah Brunstetter had no problem last night spend thirty bucks on wine and sweet potato fries.

I find all of these brutal images of Gaddafi leading up to, during and after his death REALLY CHILLING. I guess if I didn’t, I wouldn’t be a person. Now everything’s so permanently recordable with our phonethings and decorum is a thing of a past. Not that he deserved decorum. But. It’s terrifying to see HIS terror as he’s about to be murdered. His vulnerability sans his hot lady bodyguards, the wall he’d built between he and his ‘subjects’ completely gone. And it makes me think of how Hitler ordered his body burned so this sort of public humiliation would not happen to him. And it makes me think of Stalin and how millions flocked to see his body when it was first embalmed even though he was a murderer. Or maybe BECAUSE he was a murderer. And then it makes me wonder how savage we really are?  And then, I worry and think.

When I get like this,  just to bring myself back to earth / my realm of experience, it’s important to look at some cute cupcakes.

Yes, that IS a condom sort of innocently dangling there from the handrail, and YES, I did almost touch it.
