I love writing but I'm bad at writing about me.

On Cool Jeopardy Stories

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) and then I'll have to try and win so that the next day I can tell the story of the time I met Ranjit from How I Met Your Mother.

If by some miracle I'm a repeat champ, I'll eventually have to start lying.

On Cool Jeopardy Stories

Can we audition at the same time and then end up on the same episode of Jeopardy, and I'll tell the story about the time I saw the guy who played Michel on Gilmore Girls?

And then we will have to find a third person with a vaguely interesting Gilmore Girls sighting, or we'll just have to judge them really hard.

On Dominique Howard, the 2014 Microsoft Word World Champion

I wish there were like a dozen more Dominiques and that they all worked with me. We would get shit DONE and we'd get it done wearing awesome hats.

Way to make marriage sound like a contract, Duggars. I'm not married, but I am religious, and the religious definitions of marriage I've heard are all much more beautiful and meaningful than this stuff.

On Powerful Women Join Forces, Combat Racism, Save Music, Improve World

Yesssss! I thought I might be the only person in my generation who likes to pretend that someday she'll be able to sing like Ella.

(I cannot sing, at all. But I pretend anyway.)

On Weekend Roundup / Open Thread

Can we just talk about how Jazmine has the best pop culture stories? Watching the Simpsons because Mallory Ortberg made you do it is the kind of pop culture origin story that I only wish I had.

On How Have You Made Yourself Proud This Year?

Read Anonymous and recognized what she went through and in case I haven't told her enough: she is so brave and I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that I admire her a lot and I think she's kickass.

This year I finally came to terms with the fact that I am good at my job. I got a raise that I asked for (very meekly, but I asked for it) and I took a stand about some work-related stuff I thought was important, and I was able to stand my ground because I know that I am good at my job.

On Terminator: Sure, Why Not

Something about the movie's look is a little off-putting: It's too current, too "now", as if it'll look outdated in a few years' time. But hell if this Sarah Connor doesn't look as kickass as her previous incarnations.
