My Beautiful Mother

December 31st, 2013 by Bekah Brunstetter

My mom has no idea how pretty she is, but she tends to believe most things she reads on the internet / sees on the Hallmark channel, and so: Guess what Mom: Now it’s real.

PARTY PANTS

December 31st, 2013 by Bekah Brunstetter

In an odd, daring and vulnerable moment, I ordered these ridiculous shorts. I love them. They scare me.

WHEN? WHEN WOULD I WEAR THEM?

SCENARIOS:

- swimming underneath a faux eiffel tower in Las Vegas

- 20 year high school reunion

- while on Bath Salts

- other situations that I probably won’t find myself in anytime soon

I like to look at them, pretend to wear them, and force my tiny friend to actually wear them.

This record

Is everything. Not some of the things or a few of the things, BUT ALL OF THE THINGS! Thanks, the goodwill on lewisville clemmons where I hid in a corner on the floor and dug through the records while two plump women perused used self help books and one said to the other, my ex husbands girlfriend, she’s a fat cow, bless her heart, and the other responded, Bless her heart. Thanks for the memories!

When they cry, you are meant to laugh hysterically, yes?

Do you enjoy nausea and terror? Then you will LOVE that picture of me with a barbell pierced through my tongue area. GROSS / WHY?

Haters: Why must you Hate?

December 28th, 2013 by Bekah Brunstetter

I was advised not to blog about this, but when am I ever obedient?

Okay. I am usually obedient.

But this really got my goat:

Hilarious. Who takes time out of their holiday season when they should be with family and friends to SEARCH FOR THE EMAIL ADDRESS OF, AND THEN SEND AN UNNECCESSARY, CONDESCENDING EMAIL TO the random writer of one random article from almost two years ago? WHO DOES THAT? Person above, hiding behind their vague, ridiculous, nameless gmail account does that exactly. ¬†Wisetoforget: apologies for the effrontery that was my article. Perhaps when Vulture asks you to write a similar article, you could OH WAIT, THEY DIDN’T (Snaps finger in Z shape / drops mike / aggressively shakes print-out of MFA / hides under blankets.)

Stone mountain!

December 27th, 2013 by Bekah Brunstetter

Went for a family hike up to stone mountain; clean Air; uphill and selfies galore. Mostly just one very exhausted, very self satisfied little guy!

Together Again

December 26th, 2013 by Bekah Brunstetter

My beautiful high school buds and I! We are pastry chef and therapist and writer and Gardener / Artiste! We are grown. Last night we discussed job stability and other assorted grown up things, but did not neglect to reminisce over that time we made beers explode in the freezer and that time we went to that weird guy’s house and that other time some certain someones had torrid affairs with managers at Party City.
