re: Cats; Bags

May 21st, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Never, under any circumstances, should you let the Cat out of the Bag. Not even because you might spoil secrets, but because CATS STUCK IN BAGS, AND WATCHING CATS EXTRACT THEMSELVES FROM BAGS ONCE THEY’VE BECOME STUCK, IS QUITE POSSIBLY THE BEST THING IN THE WORLD AND ALSO WHY THEY INVENTED THE INTERNET.

Mirror, Mirror, on my Nails

May 20th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

WHO IS THE PERSON WHO WILL SPEND 50 DOLLARS ON A GEL MANICURE THAT MAKE HER NAILS LOOK LIKE MIRRORS?

WAIT…IT’S ME?

OKAY SO AT WHAT POINT EXACTLY DID I BECOME THIS PERSON?

IS IT POSSIBLE TO GO BACK IN TIME, RE-PRIORITIZE?

NO? YOU’RE NOT THAT KIND OF MIRROR? YOU ONLY ANSWER RHETORICAL QUESTIONS AND DO SPELLS? COOL COOL, AS YOU WERE

PRINCESSSSSSSSS!!!!!

May 19th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Me, the last few weeks: Royal wedding = meh, I mean I’m sure it’ll be gorgeous but isn’t it kind of weird how we’re all privy to their incredibly personal union?

Me, this morning: PRETTY PRINCESS!!! LOOK!! MORRISON!!!

Morrison: ….What?

Me: LOOK AT THE PRETTY PRETTY PRINCESS!!! I MEAN TECHNICALLY SHE’S A DUCHESS BUT LOOK AT HER PRETTY PRETTY DRESS IT’S SO PRETTY

Morrison:….Okay. I’m going back to sleep.

Me: (softly, scrolling through pictures)….princess…..

herstory

May 18th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Me, the other night:

  • Stands at bar waiting to be served
  • Notices that all of the dudes at the bar are straight up staring at her
  • Marvels at this, assumes that it must be the fact that she curled her hair. At first gets a little angry, like, just because she kinda looks like a Barbie, NOW she gets attention? But also, or mostly, she feels flattered, if not drop dead gorgeous; Muses over what a difference a little self care can make, you just have to —
  • Realizes there is a giant TV playing sports right behind her head

dƮtes-moi

May 17th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Last night a friend Ā opened up to me about some life nonsense she was dealing with, like all of it, which was truly a lot. And after, she told me that she hadn’t shared all of this with anyone other than me — but she felt like she could tell me anything, because she knows I won’t judge her, and well, that was one of the best things I’ve ever heard. Maybe sharing this here is braggadocious, but hearing that from her just really moved me. I’m not brave, per se, and I’m not so much strong. I’m anxious and I’m a worrier and I’m conflict averse, I’m easily swayed, Ā and I never and I do mean NEVER clean out the coffee maker. But: Ā you can tell me anything. And I will not judge you. I will hold your hand and listen. I will go home and NOT clean out my coffee maker.

Most recently, we purchased a Lifestyle Magazine called Lifestyle from some up and coming second graders, in hopes that our investment might validate and encourage them:

The Mermaid Style

upfronts

May 15th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Allow me to be UPFRONT with you. For years, as a working TV writer, I heard the word upfronts in various sentences. i.e.,Ā I can’t that week, I’ll be at upfrontsĀ andĀ they’re going to announce it at upfrontsĀ andĀ we have to wait and see what happens at upfrontsĀ and I would nod and feign understanding and respond with things likeĀ oh, right, upfrontsĀ and even make my OWN sentences like,Ā MAN, THOSE UPFRONTS!Ā But I KNEW NOT WHAT I SAID. But this year, I can say this sentence with both confidence and understanding: The darling This is Us cast is currently at UPFRONTS by which I mean, the time when all of the people from all the shows go to NYC and present for advertisers so that the advertisers can say,Ā you look like you could sell my deodorant! upfronts upfronts,Ā and then everyone walks away with money (?)

moment catcher

May 14th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

I promise that tomorrow I’ll return to regular coverage of my weird bad dreams, but just one more time, Tulum. I love this picture I took:

These two dudes (whom the girls sitting across from us noted had ‘extreme Dothraki vibes’) were just spinning around on the roof of this nest, reveling in the storm clouds as they moved in. I mean, just before they started spinning, they were taking an absurd amount of panoramic pictures, but then at a certain point, they stopped taking pictures, and just experienced the moment. Enter ME, secretly taking a picture of THEM while they thoroughly inhabited the moment. Is there a business there? You hire someone to secretly capture you in authentic moments, in which you don’t know that your picture is being taken at all? IS THERE?

Wait.

I think I mean photographer.

Yes I do.

I mean photographer.
