Subverting the Sticker System

June 5th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

The I VOTED sticker has been fantastic for our Democracy, as it truly motivates people to Vote, not just because it matters, but because if you DON’T vote,  you risk the shame of being the only person at work WITHOUT the sticker, and whoever came up with the idea for the sticker should obviously feel like a genius today and all days, and obviously here is a picture of me with my sticker,

BUT NEXT YEAR COULD SOMEONE WITH A SMALL BUDGET AND A SMALL AMOUNT OF FREE TIME PLEASE MAKE A BUNCH OF STICKERS THAT LOOK EXACTLY THE SAME BUT SAY I FARTED, INSTEAD? JUST FOR MY OWN AMUSEMENT, IF NOT THE WORLD’S?

the Decision

June 4th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

When I first started writing the Cake, in late 2015, I legit worried that it’s central argument might be dated, that no one really felt strongly one way or the other about gay marriage anymore. Then November 2016 happened. Then in June 2017, while in rehearsal for the first production of the play, the Supreme Court announced that they would hear the case that inspired the play. Today, they made their ruling, and my email and phone are a mindsplosion of questions and requests for responses and instead of hiding under my desk which feels MOST truthful right now, can I just voice my feelings here, door shut, safe inside, still processing? Can I say that I’m not surprised but also surprised? Can I say that I think it’s interesting that OUR SUPREME COURT CANNOT EVEN DECIDE WHAT TO DO, HERE? Can I just note that all they did was kick a very large can down a very narrow road? Can I observe the difference between freedom of speech and freedom of expression and the court’s attempt to honor and protect both anti-gay business owners but ALSO the gay community? Can I just ask, is it even possible to do both?  CAN I PREDICT THAT THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT THE END OF THIS?

Early retirement

June 2nd, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

My Dad: I think you should consider retiring your blog. You’ve been doing it for so long, and you’ve got so much other stuff on your plate. You shouldn’t have to stress over your blog, too.

Me: Noooooooo! It’s my way to write something just for myself every day, and it brings me so much peace and joy IS THIS CONVERSATION DONE YET

Dad:…..yes?

Me: GREAT CAUSE I HAVE TO GO BLOG NOW OR MY LIFE HAS NO MEANING

I’d like to strangle the Academy

June 1st, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

It’s truly an honor to be a member of the Television Academy dream come true etc etc etc, but during Emmy season, THIS HAPPENS:

They send you so many screeners and you don’t have time to open them or watch them or do anything about them because you’re too busy doing the thing that got you into the Television Academy in the first place, so busy that there’s no time to even google how to make them stop, or what even to do with them, and I guess technically I could be doing that this second, but NO THANKS I’D RATHER COMPLAIN.
