On clicking it, and Who is Not

November 21st, 2011 by Bekah Brunstetter

I’m remembering all of these things about ‘cars’ and ‘driving,’ about how you must put gas in the car, about how after it rains, it’s hard to see out the back window. And I keep seeing tons of Click it or ticket signs, which makes me SATC Icouldn’thelpbutwonder, WHO IS NOT CLICKING?! In these days, nay, in these TIMES, who is not buckling their seatbelts? Then I remember how in New York, when one’s pretty much only in a car when it’s a cab or car service, we rarely click it, as if riding in the back of a livery is so not like riding in an actual car, ie, EVEN MORE DANGEROUS. Everyone in New york, please: CLICK IT OR (SOMETHING THAT RHYMES WITH CLICK IT THAT MEANS DEATH.)

How to avoid things, with marshmallows

November 20th, 2011 by Bekah Brunstetter

I’m really good at avoiding things. Difficult phone calls, conversations, email responses, remembering to buy toothpaste / pay credit card, and other things that are just really hard, but you should just DO them.   I realized today – I’m also very good at avoiding writing certain scenes in a play I’m working on. There’s always a scene that I’m scared to touch – essentially because it’s a conversation I’m avoiding having with MYSELF. Now that I’ve realized this, I will definitely, absolutely go work on this scene -after I  spend a decent amount of time drawing faces on marshmallows, and other important things.

be Nice to me

November 20th, 2011 by Bekah Brunstetter

I really love this product placement Green Protein smoothie from Trader Joe’s end product placement. It’s got green stuff in it and protein stuff in it. It makes me feel like I’m being nice to myself. Speaking of self-niceties, I’m pretty sure I have a cavity from the stress-eating of sour patch kids, and while some splurge on niceties like massages / pedicures, I just might treat myself to the dentist.

and how it gave me the run around

November 19th, 2011 by Bekah Brunstetter

Silverlake has given me, only me, and no other Los Angeles residents, just me, a reservoir to run around. LIKE LIKE LIKE. This reservoir will serve to counteract the fact that I apparently go to Trader Joe’s 5 times a week.

The Hills are Alivveeeeee

November 18th, 2011 by Bekah Brunstetter

With the sound of me  / my glutes crying in unison as I walk up them

With songs they have sung

For a thousand years

(Ahhh ahhh ahh ahhhhh)

I Learn Things!

November 17th, 2011 by Bekah Brunstetter

Working on the show kind of makes me feel like I’m back in grad school, which I LOVE. I think it’s kind of a been a while since I’ve learned something new about how to write / how to write well, and I’m absolutely doing that now. TV writing, or I guess, at least, GOOD TV writing, is about telling an unexpected story. A fresh story. The non-predictable story. Pondering this today on my drive home (it’s either pondering, or Accapella Dixie Chicks, these are the options) I realized that my plays are so, so, so predictable. This isn’t necessarily always a bad thing – I’m not the kind of writer who’s good at surprising the audience, but I guess making the journey towards the obvious end specific, funny, and truthful. But what if, WHAT IF, I could also train my brain to think of the more unexpected path? What then? I’ll tell you what then, one of five unique visitors:

I’d probably be a better writer.

SCHOOL!

An Attempt

November 17th, 2011 by Bekah Brunstetter

I’d like to thank the Goodwill in Hollywood for assisting me in semi-settling in (I refuse to FULLY commit) with these old weird pictures of birds, and lamp that is mysteriously sticky. THANKS, OLD THINGS THAT MAKE ME FEEL AT HOME!

Adulthood?

November 16th, 2011 by Bekah Brunstetter

I find it hilarious that as I delicately approach 30, and am making more $ than I have ever made, I now live, temporarily,  on a mattress on the floor. I also have a few weird Ikea items and a closet full of unnecessary clothes (WHY DID I BRING SOME MANY CLOTHES) and am apparently completely incapable of painting my toenails more than once every five months. I have to say, it’s also kinda fun. There’s something exciting about giving it one more college try, eating chips for dinner, shoving my underwear into plastic bins.
