Me: Mom, what should I call this blog post?

Mom: Cookie capers.

Me: What? What does that mean?

Mom: Cookie Monsters!

Me: What?

Mom: You came home for easter!


Mom: What happened? You used to come home for easter! (Drinks wine.) Your Dad isn’t a senator anymore, I don’t care what I say!

I also <3:

– My red scarf

– standing in front of pretty sunsets and making Julien take pictures of me but having it accidentally be on video so standing for much longer than I planned then sort of fidgeting so then also having a video of myself in front of said sunset

A Seasonal Hymn

December 23rd, 2013 by Bekah Brunstetter













(My parents got a puppy for Christmas. In case you missed it, here again is that puppy.)

So far he is gentle, playful, charming, exactly like our once lab Tanner who are desperately trying to recreate, and only poops on the floor SOMETIMES.

A Rule

December 22nd, 2013 by Bekah Brunstetter


I do not defy gravity without first consuming a gluttonous sandwich of sorts. I JUST DON’T DO IT.

Merry Christmas to ME.

While shopping for others, if you accidentally acquire a few things for yourself, this is totally permissible.

I has Money?

December 20th, 2013 by Bekah Brunstetter

Today, I go where no Me has ever gone before. I meet with a financial advisor to figure out how to best pay off my student loans / manage my dollar dollar bills, you all. It will basically be exactly as pictured above except, you know, I have brown hair and I do not have a gay husband. You know what it is that they say: More Money, More unnecessary pedicures and more of that that recurring nightmare in which you totally forgot you were keeping a puppy in a box underneath you bed. Making a decent living has actually given me more anxiety than comfort, as I can’t help but worry constantly that I’m not doing the right thing with my dough. Here’s hoping I find some Heavenly Peace in spreadsheets!

The Switched at Birth writing team does not play when it comes to  Secret Santa. Odd and thoughtful and elaborate presents included autographs from Bernadette Peters and a giant Darth Vader doll and Star Trek memorabilia and a Christmas Ham and a handmade puzzle of some football dude named Peanuts. DOES. NOT. PLAY.

Being a member of the Writer’s Guild means health insurance, but also NEVER LEAVING YOUR HOUSE BESIDES WORK BECAUSE WHY WOULD YOU during the months of November and December, because they send you screeners of every movie that’s currently in the theater that you want to see. It’s a huge gift but also distraction but also potential jail time if you are caught loaning out your ‘water marked disk.’ After ten minutes of ¬†ten different screens with threats assuring you that you WILL go to jail were you to loan out your screener, le film begins, reminding you every two minutes that you are not meant to loan out your screener, and there, in the safety of your own living room, eating a humiliating concoction that’s equal parts pasta and parmesan and sriacha, you are transported.

Now I am no film expert and my critique there is fairly limited to Good! and Loud! and Bad! but I will now respond to a few choice screeners with vague phrases and words.

Dallas Buyer’s Club: skinny people are weird. Aids is bad. Oscar bait.

Blue Jasmine: It is possible to feel bad for rich people

American Hustle: Amy Adam’s sideboob

Prisoners: that time when you didn’t know what the movie was about for the first 15 minutes and then you realized what was going to happen, just before it happened, and decided that it was because your dramatists’ brain has matured and you felt quite self-satisfied; whistles.

Lone Survivor: THANK YOU GOD THAT MY BROTHERS ARE STILL ALIVE; too much people falling down hills.

GUESS WHAT I HAVE A WHOLE WEEK OFF IN FEBRUARY! What a gift. I’m thinking of taking said gift, grabbing childhood friend Charlotte St. Julien Patton, and heading to Costa Rica for some waterfalls / ziplining / selfies with various Sloths. The hardest thing about planning a trip is actually planning the trip. Like not just talking about it but actually doing it. Clicking purchase and getting there. Here’s hoping it actually happens cause this gal needs to get her head outta dodge and have some experiences that do no involve traffic or text messages.
