How To Read A Letter From Your Lawyer

November 15, 2017


Here is the letter I just drafted to a client (redacted to remove private details of course): Dear Mr. Dude: This is to inform you that the Gotham City Court has continued your hearing in this matter to NEW BAT DATE at SAME BAT TIME. I was able to convince the Court not to issue […]

How to Live Happily Ever After

January 24, 2017


I have been binge-watching Once Upon A Time. I had started watching the show when it first aired, but lost track midway through the first season. SPOILER ALERT: In-depth analysis follows. I am currently in the second half of Season Three. There are some themes that have cropped up that I find very troubling. In Once, […]

Between a Rock and a Hard Place

March 3, 2016


One of my favorite blogs, Neutrois Nonsense, has been featuring various guest bloggers and re-posts about something that has been in the back of my mind for years now and, with reading the series of blog posts, is pretty much at the front of my mind lately: chest reconstruction surgery. I haven’t talked much about […]

I Still Want to Get Rid of All My Stuff–Part Deux

March 1, 2016

When I was 12, we visited my Great Aunt. She had this hippy’s wet dream of a farm, in the mountains outside Santa Cruz. I loved the place, and my mom was close to her aunt, but we never visited for more than an afternoon–because their house was a hoarder’s house. There was stuff everywhere […]

Kansas Stomps on Fundamental Rights

January 28, 2014


It’s well established that when and how to have children is a private, individual decision protected by the Constitution. This news story shows how some states continue to burden that right, at least for anyone who wants to conceive with the help of a sperm donor and without the thousands of dollars of out of […]

Outing Eric Robillard, Le Clown, The Magnificent – the predator with the red nose.

January 16, 2014


Originally posted on "As For Me, I am a watercolor:
In the not so distant past, I was invited to write a story for Black Box Warnings. It was more of a cross-emailing going on – I’d approached Le Clown first and in his reply, explained that Jen had already spoken to him about…
