I’m not the kind of person to plan my wedding or surrounding festivities before I’m even dating anybody, but I’m increasingly aware that I will be completely willing to have a backyard potluck of a wedding if it means I get to go on an Adriatic Sea cruise for my honeymoon.

On Neutral Milk Hotel and a lot of Crying.
Last night I lost my i.d. while walking to the Jeff Mangum/Neutral Milk Hotel concert and I cried and cried and cried because I thought I would miss my only chance ever to see him play. But then somehow I magically got into the show without it, and I’m pretty sure that saved my life because if I had had to stand outside knowing that my favorite musician ever was inside playing, I probably...

Quick somebody remind me that marriage is actually really miserable a lot of the time. Because both Facebook and Twitter really enjoy convincing everyone that weddings are basically synonymous to having a gigantic expensive birthday party, except it’s with your best friend and you get to have a lot of sex afterwards. And then it’s over. It’s not over after that. After that...
A concise summary of the abortion arguments...
Opinion 1: “What goes on with a woman’s body is no ones business or choice but her own.” Opinion 2: “It’s everyone’s business when it comes to human life and the people who are affected by it.” There you go.

If you have trouble not letting thoughts of boys motivate the large...
Nursing, battling demons, and doing the Stanky...
I am now known as the Asha Nepal nurse. Ever since Namu’s accident, everyone comes to me to fix scrapes and cuts and blisters. “Sista, sista! You are Asha Nepal nurse!” seven year old Deena says to me daily, even when there is no nursing to be done in sight. I don’t think I’ve ever taken my band aid changing skills so seriously.
