Since you’re gone


Yeah, so, David is going to be traveling a lot for work again starting next week.

David has a got a cool job , and I really wish I could go with him on business trips, but I’m already in vacation debt at work. Stupid breast cancer surgeries! Curses!

Of course, while David is away, I slip into some questionable behavior. Here’s a list of things I do while David is out of town:

  • I order chick flicks On Demand. [Prepare to be ordered, “Going the Distance.”]
  • I eat edamame for dinner.
  • I have two-way conversations with Homer.
  • I watch more TV than should be legally allowed. [“Breaking Bad” season 2 … we will be together soon.]
  • I drink a lot of wine and go to bed embarrassingly early.
  • I let Homer sleep in the bed.
  • I practice the drums for my imaginary band, Cock Punch.
  • I pick fights with tea partiers on Twitter.
  • I friend people on Facebook I don’t like and then I unfriend them.
  • I review my matches for free on
  • I organize my mix tape collection.
  • I go through all his stuff looking for clues.
  • I cut out a picture of David’s face, and I put it on a volleyball to keep me company.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. While David is away, I know a Danish guy named Ivan who’s looking to kill some time….
