Well, against my better judgement, I’ve started a blog.
I started writing TV recaps for BroadwayWorld.com, and realized that I was having a lot of fun with it. Add to that the many (or like 15) positive responses I got on Twitter and Facebook, and I’m thinking maybe I should see what happens when I write, and it’s NOT about The Bachelor.
And fifteen compliments is enough to start a blog, right?? One that people will actually read? Like, maybe more than fifteen people? I’m gonna go with my ignorance on this one and declare a resounding YES.
So, here I am. I have no idea what I’m going to be writing about, but I hope to keep it as positive as possible. Not like super-sweet-fake-I-don’t-believe-a-word-you-say positive, but I can say with absolute conviction that this blog will not exist to spread negativity. Maybe spread awareness about pointless minor pop culture subjects, but not outright negativity. And to be clear, slight snark does not count as negativity. TOTAL snark, yes, but not the little tiny touch of snark that sometimes proves necessary to get a point across.
A little about me: I live in New York City. I’m an actress who has worked on Broadway, TV (kind of) and across the country in various musicals, but I’m still not sure what I want to do with my life. I’m 34 years old but I still feel like I’m 25. I’m pretty sure I can communicate with dogs. Watching television is my therapy. Online shopping is my therapy. Therapy is my therapy. I have clinical depression and anxiety. I will always watch a cheerleading competition on ESPN2. I’m terrible at shopping though I love to do it. I’m getting married for the second time in June. I love office supplies to a fault. Staples is also my therapy. I have a lot of therapy but I’m still nuts. I’m pretty sure I drink too much, but I’m pretty sure most of my friends do too. I love Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand and my life will not be complete until I’m drinking Sauvignon Blanc in New Zealand. I read books like a fiend and have an addiction to magazines that actually arrive in my mailbox. I will forever secretly consider myself a princess. Maybe not so secretly anymore. I love Barbie. I love the New York Giants and the New York Yankees. I’m allergic to root vegetables and tree fruits. The only thing I want every day is to be happy.
And there you have it! I have no idea how often I’m going to be posting, or what I will be writing about, but I hope you’ll join me for the ride.
