Can't get enough of my ramblings and thoughts? →
Thanks for the suggestions + comments on the professional site earlier. I’m really digging the changes I made today. I also decided that if I was going to spend so much time reading social media blogs every day, I might as well share my thoughts and favorite links over there as well. So I added a blog page and am going to aim to update it every week day if I can. Don’t worry -...
Obsessing Over: All of the fun treats I bought myself this weekend. Have you tried this Garnier BB cream? It’s perfection. As is every single other little trinket, scarf or striped item of clothing that came home with me. Working On: Organizing some things in my office and my to do list. Then it’s on to posting calendars, press releases, and research. Thinking About: How badly I do...
all this happened, more or less: My Dead Friends →
I have begun, when I’m weary and can’t decide an answer to a bewildering question to ask my dead friends for their opinion and the answer is often immediate and clear. Should I take the job? Move to the city? Should I try to conceive a child in my middle age? They stand in unison shaking their…

It’s been busy around here. I just got back in town tonight and have so much I need to be doing, but I can’t seem to get motivated after a usually 2 hour trip home took more than 3.5. I’ve spent the last 10 days tense and anxious about various things but also having so much fun with all the people I love the most. Saturday morning was for shopping with the world’s best mom...

Ira Glass on marriage.
Kurt Braunohler: I do have a theory now that if I do get married in the future, what I think I would want to do is have an agreement that, at the end of seven years, we have to get remarried in order for the marriage to continue. But at the end of seven years, it ends. And we can agree to get remarried or not get remarried.
Ira Glass: Why?
KB: Because then I think you get to choose. And I think it would make the relationship stronger.
IG: ...I think actually one of the things that’s a comfort in marriage is that there isn’t a door at seven years, and so if something is messed up, in the short term, there’s a comfort of knowing, ‘well we made this commitment, so we’re just going to work this out. And even if tonight we’re not getting along, or there’s something between us that doesn’t feel right, you have the comfort of knowing, we’ve got time, we’re going to figure this out’. And that makes it so much easier. Because you do go through times where you hate each other’s guts, and the no escape clause, weirdly, is a bigger comfort to being married than I ever would have thought before I got married.
