Robert Schwartzman is hot. Jason Schwartzman is not.
According to twitter, Robert hangs out with Joe Jonas. According to real life, Jason Schwartzman is always in really good movies.
Wait. They’re both cousins with Nicolas [...]
I follow politics. Or rather, I live with someone who follows politics, so every nuanced caveat of every single major bill in Congress is a blockbuster Imax JAWS kind of moment in my household. Brian looks at Gwen Ifill like other guys check out centerfolds. If Jon Stewart has said it, he’s heard it and repeated [...]
Went hiking with Brian again today. Some redwood forest in Oakland, chock full of babbling brooks, muddy patches and unexpected hills. Muscles are crackling with lactic acid [...]
Harriet and Wendy Discuss Their Yogurts in Minor Indulgences.
- – – -
“Oh my god, Wendy, wow, this yogurt is snow day good.”
“Harriet, this right here is statutory good.”
“Let’s see… this is open bar good.”
“Harriet, this is definitely post-Brazilian Percocet good.”
“Hmmm. This is, ahhhh, cash-in-the-laundry good.”
“Nah, this is more [...]
When I started to tell people I was moving to San Francisco, they invariably wanted to know why I felt like picking up all my junk and sending it across the country. I didn’t have much of a reason I could articulate, except that I had visited and really liked it. That visit came [...]

2. Our kitchen sink drain caused the ceiling in the lobby to leak water.
3. We blew a fuse with the toaster oven.

5. Our hot water tap in the kitchen stopped working.
Living in a charming, prewar apartment with lots [...]

Unless you have a really hard time finding someone you love- affectionately, sisterly/brotherly, platonic, BFFL, whatever- then quit the bitching. I don’t really get why it has become a [...]
Other than my ceiling collapse, what’s new with me?
Still jobless, which kind of sucks, since I think Brian is starting to tire of my constant be-slippered presence in our house.
I started running. I know, people. Marie? Cardio? WTF? My preferred form of exercise is yoga, and apparently there aren’t any places looking for dedicated bathroom-swabbers in [...]
It’s been raining here a lot since we moved in, which I don’t really mind, because, whatever, it could be snow. Rain, psh, NBD, I can handle you. It’s been clear the last few days, but the rain resumed this afternoon, gently but distinctly pattering down our gutters. It’s a noise I’ve gotten very used to [...]
Listening to B vocally agree with a video of Obama taken this AM at the Senate Democratic Conference.
He’s listening to me vocally agree with the bloggers who all think Robert Pattinson is hot (although Jacob is a better guy, you know?).
Our interests rarely [...]
