Comedy

The 6’3” guy who danced with me Friday called me yesterday. He’s a voiceover artist and a stand-up comedian so… he has a ridiculously sexy voice, and we had each other laughing a thousand times a minute. It was a lot of fun, and it got me thinking, that in my private life since the

Connecting Emotionally

I’ve been an overachieving, grade-grubbing, voraciously-reading student all my life, age 5 onward. My parents were super cheap and frugal about everything – we’d cut off mold from bread and eat the rest of the loaf, that type of thing. But the one thing that there was no budget cap on was books.

My brother Matthew has autism

My brother Matthew at the aquarium today, with a photo of me below. Matt is 27 (2 years younger than I am), loves animals, Disney, the ocean, Christmas, umbrellas, and road trips. He has autism.

I am an American, born of immigrants

I am an American. I was born in New Jersey. My paternal grandfather immigrated to the US from Korea. (My dad was 9 years old when they moved to Tennessee, meet him and listen for that Southern accent.) My grandpa was a Yale Ph.D. and a brilliant mathematician. He was, in my words, a national

Deal Us In

Deal Us In. We’re playing again. This morning (Day 2) I don’t quite feel as cheerful as I am in this picture but I feel the same tremendous love. I talked to both of these strong women last night – both LA friends but one is shadowing a director of the season finale of The

A Setback, F*ck Perfectionism

In Hillary’s concession speech, I felt like she was speaking DIRECTLY to me with this:”I’ve had successes and setbacks and sometimes painful ones. Many of you are at the beginning of your professional, public, and political careers – you will have successes and setbacks too. This loss hurts, but please never stop believing that fighting
