On The Best Time I Had Alopecia

I also have this weird circular hair-loss thing. A few quibbles -- is it really stress-related? I know that's sort of a commonly accepted theory, but I didn't think it was proven exactly.

Also, like, strap in -- I've had spots come and go all over my head in 10 years. Just because it grew back doesn't mean it's back for good. Or it could just start again somewhere else.

On An Interview With the [Former] Editor of The L Magazine, Jonny Diamond. Or, When to Quit a Job

"When you find yourself spending all your time covering people who are making things (art, writing, building, design, music) in the way that you would like to make things, you eventually reach a breaking point."

This is the exact reason I quit arts publicity.

On Terrible Boyfriends, "Mistress Material," and Who Feels What How

I'm sorry, but is anyone else finding these answers a bit strident and Jezebel-y? Making all your advice to the complex problems of real people "that guy is a dick! dump him!" is a bit, well, insane and unrealistic and shows basically no understanding of human existence. Still, simple things are fun to say! If someone doesn't immediately obey you, dump them! If you meet someone at work, they are sexually harassing you! Etc.
