On Writing, Depression and Learning How to Handle Attention: A Conversation with Allie Brosh

@likearollingpin I AM deeply delighted to find this cohort of fellow Terry Gross haters. She makes me so uncomfortable on behalf of all of her interviewees but all my intellectudork friends worship at her feet.

On Improving My Woman Cave

@Scandyhoovian There is an interesting NFL gear commercial that I saw multiple times during the game last night. It is a little girly but mostly not. I liked it: http://www.baltimoreravens.com/videos/videos/Harbaugh-Gives-Speech-For-NFL-Womens-Apparel-/59476657-1332-4ebe-804d-3c0584e53b73

On Nate & Margaret

I worked on a play with Natalie in Chicago and she was WONDERFUL. Everyone absolutely adored her and she was fantastic in the play (Nickel & Dimed @ Steppenwolf Theatre).

On The $625 Apartment

I'm in Mott Haven, in the South Bronx, with a 4.5 bedroom brownstone for 2,760 per month. It's a gut rehab with giant bedrooms, a backyard, new appliances, etc. It's amazing. The neighborhood is (now) safe, or at least as safe as anywhere else in NYC, relatively quiet and best of all- right on the 4/5 express train to Manhattan. Getting to Union Square, where I work, is 25 min., easy. And I'm paying slightly less than $700. I love the non-Brooklyn boroughs!

On The First Sandra Lee: Poppy Cannon and Her Can-Opener Cuisine

@werewolfbarmitzvah Having waited on Sandra Lee at work on several occasions now and seen her on a few other occasions in a social context, I can say that she might be a badass, but she is also possibly evil and has very little regard for anyone else in the universe especially if they are potentially "below" her. She is not even remotely a nice person, let alone even a civil one.

On Quirks: Is Their Ignorance Our Bliss?

@honeybadger My dad says Yellow too! And my grandpa used to do it before him and now my brother is starting to say it too. It warms my heart every time!

On How to Survive a 10-Hour Flight Like a Lady

Just don't forget to get rid of excess fruit and such before going through customs on your overseas flight! Otherwise, you might end up the most cozy and refreshed looking occupant of your local lock-up.
