Literally Patti Murin

Well, against my better judgement, I’ve started a blog.

I started writing TV recaps for, 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.

  1. Hi Patti.
    I just discovered your blog and read through all your entries – in wrong order, but I don’t think that matters. I had to laugh out loud so many times, you’re so funny and often you just said things I see and feel exactly the same way. I’m 35 and feel like 25 too 🙂 Sometimes I feel like my mind is developing backwards. But I love to feel so much younger and I think it shows in your every day behaviour. I don’t care about getting older as long as you feel young and free.
    Oh and your blog about food… I totally see you! Chocolate… hmm yeah… kale chips… urrggh nope…
    Now I’ll try if I can find a way to follow you, so that I won’t miss your newest entries!
    Have a happy life! Greetings from Germany 🙂

  2. Twitter suggested that I follow you, and I was very glad that I did. You have made me laugh so many times! I also saw you in the opening preview for Lysistrata Jones, and I think I may have been sitting with your family for there was a grown man crying. That show was funny, right? Mostly? Anyway, you were great and I look forward to reading your blog!


  3. I love this! I am so happy you are continuing your blog beyond the Bachelor as I was dreading going through withdrawal. I cannot wait to read more, you are my first blog follow! Love you!

  4. You are too cute. And you succeeded. You made me laugh and smile. Xx. p.s – I hear you on the anxiety thing. Try adding EFT (emotional freedom technique) to your therapy. Only thing that calms me down. I swear by it. 😘

  5. You can never drink too much… and I too love Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand (yellowtail in the house…and who loves that it has a screw top? This gal!)… Looking forward to the snark!


  6. From a WordPress account, find your Reader. There is a link to the Reader on the stats page you are taken to after signing in. On the Reader page, there is a place near the top of the screen where you can enter a URL to subscribe to a blog. Also, from a computer’s browser (not mobile) there should be a subscribe link on the blog in the top left corner of the screen. Keep in mind that following and subscribing are different. I hope that helps!
