how it Really is

April 21st, 2014 by Bekah Brunstetter

I love, I mean, I love,  like I love air, and boys, and words, and life, to make things for people and have people over the consume the things. To host, to entertain, to plate things.  In my fantasy life, I am very good at it. I make cakes like its nothin while birds flit about my house and it’s all effortless and flawless and wonderful.

In my real life, that vodka infused with mint and cucumber was basically accidentally all vodka to the point where I had to put a DANGER sign on it so that my guests might not poison themselves / make unsavory Easter decisions, and above pictured lemon coconut cake took me four different kinds of icings before I crafted something that was even remotely icing like, and I spent most of Saturday when I should’ve been working covered in egg whites, cursing, meanwhile forgetting that I left the back-up chocolate cake in my car and then it melted all over the passenger seat, like now the entire seat is fudge, and this morning I accidentally put my purse on it and got some of it in my hair and then sort of accidentally ate some of it. I hope that this is not just me, and that there is a similar backstory to BASICALLY ALL OF ETSY.

this is crack.

April 19th, 2014 by Bekah Brunstetter

I’m not even kidding. I am being literal. I want to melt it on a spoon and snort it if that’s a thing that people do with crack. Inject it? Put it in cookies. I want to hoard it in my room. I want to secretly do it at parties. I want to sell it. I want to travel to schools and tell kids NOT TO USE IT, AS THEY WILL NOT STOP.

LADIES; SKITTLES FOREVER

April 19th, 2014 by Bekah Brunstetter

Whenever there’s a new production of Be A Good Little Widow, two things definitely happen, aside from my standard back row hair-chewing and nostalgia / longing for days of just plays. I always  meet two incredible new ladies: Caroline Aaron as Hope, and Larisa Oleynik as Melody:

And two: there is a bowl of prop skittles for the tender end, and I EAT THEM ALL.

Isherbook

April 17th, 2014 by Bekah Brunstetter

I was shooting the shiz with some playwrights last night and we all had some pretty spectacular stories of terrible reviews. Like I was briefly trapped on an elevator with Charles Isherwood once en route down to my play, which he later tore a new bum hole. Another writer was avoiding reading her LA times review, until, while on a bus, the paper BLEW ONTO HER LAP OPEN TO IT. And so on, and so forth. Sad and hilarious tales of woe, of confidence or lack thereof, of feeling misunderstood, of profanity, of Facebook fights, of lost opportunities, of Chardonnay, of the will to go / write on.

AND SO: I think I m going to collect and compile these stories. I don’t know what for, but I really think they’d be fascinating. Playwrights feel a lot of envy for each other, and we don’t talk about it, not nearly enough, but instead craft narratives of the other playwright’s smooth, joyous career in our minds.  I think it’d be valuable for us all to hear about each other’s dark moments of New York Times and Despair. And so, I’m going to do that. I’LL SLEEP WHEN I’M DEAD Y’ALL AND PROBABLY ALSO TONIGHT

This lady

April 15th, 2014 by Bekah Brunstetter

Do yourself a flavor and listen to this incredibly inspiring Ted Talk with Gabby Giffords and her remarkable husband. Remember her? 2008, Got shot in the head, recovered? Well, currently recovering still, but it’s quite miraculous. GIve it a listen and never complain or feel discouraged basically ever again.

LILY!

April 14th, 2014 by Bekah Brunstetter

The happiest of Birthdays to my always friend Lily, who spent her day trying on giant ball gowns in various costume shops throughout London, further solidifying my deep affection for her, as if there were ANY question of it after our first meeting, some 7 years ago, when she chased me down the street  to see if I wanted to write an evening of monologues with her basically just about avocado’s, and then we did that, and then we were transcontinental friends forever.
