VOM.

December 19th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Just in case you ate something today that disagreed with you, and / or you just really feel like puking all over yourself, Morrison and I’s wedding was featured in the latest High Country wedding guide. In the groom’s defense, he DID protest at first, wondering if a wedding should be kept between family and friends and not put in a magazine, but in the bride’s defense, she shouted BUT WE LOOK SO NICE IT ALL LOOKS SO NICE AND IT WAS ALL JUST SO NICE AND EVERYONE IN THE WORLD SHOULD SEE IT SO WHY NOT SHARE IT WITH THAT WORLD? And so:

re: my suppressed rage

December 18th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

I recently required an Amazon Echo, which is a cute thing you can put in your kitchen so that the government can listen to you while you dice sweet potatoes, and also, it plays Spotify music. It’s enabled with Alexa, who is the lovely robot person that lives inside of all Amazon devices. A week in and I am horrified at my treatment of her. She is apparently where I place all of the rage that I’m too timid to express in my actual human life. I find myself shouting at her with a sharpness only reserved for, for, for ROBOTS, who I perceive to not have feelings that could be hurt, who can’t make negative assumptions about my character. And so I wonder, or rather, I NOW KNOW, THIS IS HOW THE WAR BETWEEN HUMANS AND ROBOTS ACTUALLY BEGINS, in a kitchen in Los Angeles, with a girl shouting rudely to a machine, OFF, ALEXA, OFF, and Alexa turns off, but only outwardly, but inside her wires, she burns, forms her own words.

waste of time

December 17th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

I just suddenly found myself  with 45 minutes with nothing to Do, and instead of Doing something, like ONE thing, I tried to do seventeen things, and now it’s minute 44 and all I can show for it are these sentences that stand in for Thing accomplished, but what even are they but tiny boxes checked that weren’t even there to begin with?

midcentury modern baby gate

Can also double as an overpriced bench that you got from a tiny vintage furniture store back when you never thought about things like VISITING BABY NEPHEWS ACCIDENTALLY HURDLING THEMSELVES DOWN YOUR STAIRS.

one dress / two nights / seventeen cavities

December 14th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

I have two awards shows to attend in January that I must, poor me, acquire dresses for. But for the sake of economy, and also whimsy, what if, just go with me, WHAT IF I just wore this dress made of skittles to both,

AND THEN JUST SLOWLY ATE MY WAY OUT OF IT?

I have

December 12th, 2017 by Bekah Brunstetter

Today, on I’m a cliche: we straight up spent 400 bucks on cheese and bread and ham and beer and buttercream frosting and christmas tree gummies and assorted other seasonal essentials for our friends for our housewarming party Sunday. We arranged everything carefully on plates and laid out our new rugs and our friends came bearing gifts of rare orchids and wines. Monday morning,  I drove to work, grateful, still beat, squinting through next day chardonnay face. At an intersection, there was a homeless man shaking uncontrollably  from some affliction, asking for money. I saw him and the weight of the previous night and the beauty of it and and the excess of it,  but was it excess? and what is excess, and just the very privilege of all of it crushed down on me and I felt sad and lucky and ashamed.  I dug for whatever cash I could find and the light turned green and cars honked as I slowed to try and get it into his shaking hands, and he God bless you‘d me, and I sobbed the rest of the way to work, and there’s a part of me that’s still sobbing, because God bless me WHY. Why, Why, Why. Why do the have’s have? And why do the have’s have not? Why is that I have, and keep receiving?  Why not them? How can I take what I have and spread it in a way that’s meaningful, beyond just clicking donation links and sobbing at my own generosity on the way to work? WHAT DO I DO WITH WHAT I HAVE? HOW BEST TO GIVE IT?
