I told Amy last night that in exchange for her sending me a Christmas card, I would send her a kitschy Christmas in Rockefeller Center postcard from the 30 Rock post office. It’s cuter when you consider the point of her tumblr.
That said, if anyone else out there would like a kitschy Christmas postcard from NYC let me know by leaving your mailing info in my ask box. I’m oddly in the holiday spirit today.
Should I still be allowed to do that if I’m a month shy of 26? It wasn’t my idea. My mother demanded it. This is what I asked for:
A Flip Cam
Black Leather Gloves
Mad Men on DVD
A New Coat
I kind of intended on having a low key Christmas, but now I’m wondering if I should try to summon the old Christmas spirit. I’m a grown-ass woman. Is it worth spending time, money and energy on getting myself from here:
AHHH! I can handle it if you can. Burlesque + 4Loko + macaroons? If not, that's cool, or if it's amazeballs we can see it AGAIN.
Some might say that the combination of Burlesque, 4Loko & macaroons might make a woman die. However luckypaperstars and I are no mere mortals. For we are Lady Scouts and we know how to handle gaymazingly bad movies, (almost) illegal beverages & en vogue pastries at the same time.
I'm a member of Paradigm Shift, the New York City metro-area’s largest feminist community group and event series. I found your blog kind of accidentally, but it occurred to me that you might be interested in a feminist comedy event we have coming up on Dec 9. Come and find me if you end up attending. I'd love to meet you! I book talent for our events, so let me know if you'd be interested in performing at any of our events.

Thanks for the kind message and head’s up! I’m obviously reblogging this for any of my New York followers to see. I will try my best to make this event. The only hiccup for me is a couple of my friends are headlining Comix for the first time on the same night (priorities!! ack!!), but I will try to make both!
Fun fact: Aside from Lucille Ball, Jane Curtin is the only woman to ever star on three different hit shows in three different decades (SNL in the '70s, Kate and Allie in the '80s, and 3rd Rock from the Sun in the '90s).
This reminds me I’m supposed to write a “Magnificent Seven Lady Comic Honorary LadyScout” post for Lady Scouts. Curtin is one of the seven I’m writing about. There WILL be honorary mentions because as I told luckypaperstars, just being a female comic who bases her routine on more than celeb gossip or shocking sex stories makes you automatically a LadyScout hero.
“And as a typical father who cares about male dominance, I never wanted to really know the daughter that well. Sometimes I’d forget her name, even.”—
Chevy Chase on the kids in the National Lampoon movies.
I think he’s joking?? It’s time to admit that I’ve never been able to tell when Chevy Chase is trying to be funny or not (Unless he is falling down or wearing a shark costume. Those are obvious attempts at humor).
My good friend, Perich, strikes again at OverthinkingIt.com. This time he explores how the zombie genre reflects modern American stress over urban flight. Also, is Taylor Swift’s narrator in “Mine” Tony & Gina’s daughter? Discuss.
“The problem with recent royal brides who were aristocratic is that they thought they were doing the royal family a favor by marrying them," she told CNN, "while the middle-class girls like Sophie Wessex, the countess of Wessex (married to Prince Charles’ brother, Edward), and Kate Middleton understand that to be royal requires some sacrifice, and they do not suffer from folie de grandeur (delusion of greatness) the way aristocratic girls evidently do nowadays.”—
I met a douche bag while I was in Boston. In the past I’ve always taken the high road with douche bags. Mainly because I used to be far more timid and I just didn’t have the energy to conceive of ways to bring bad people down. However, this douche bag was actually dumb enough to give me enough dirt to easily strike back at him. Like, super easy.
The question is this, do I continue to take the high road and keep karma on my good side? Or do I obliterate him as though he was Atlanta and I was motherfucking Sherman? I don’t feel like I win either way. Either I let douchery stand or I become the douche in bringing douchery down. Decisions, decisions…
Where did you perform in Boston? I'll be there soon and i was thinking about doing some open mics.
I performed at The Gas at Great Scott (organized by the darling Rob Crean) and ImprovBoston’s Nightcap (which you can find booking info about on improvboston.com - I will warn you they are booked until the end of the year). They are both small shows, but they’re fun and low-to-no pressure. As for mics, I only started doing stand up after moving to NYC, so I’m not as familiar with the mic scene in Boston as people might expect. I do know Josh Gondelman hosts a great one on Mondays at Sally O’Briens and there’s a Tuesday one at the Middle East that I think the aforementioned Rob Crean runs. The best online resource for open mics is badslava.com. There’s a page for Boston. Hope that’s enough info to go off of…have fun!
“Yeah, there was a topless sword fight—I mean duel—at a costume party, well, an orgy costume party. You didn’t miss much.”—Angela on Mata Hari (1985), her latest Netflix DVD that she watched while I went to lunch.
