Two weeks ago I recommended three friends for the new Sundance Film Institute producing program. Today, Mel C. called to ask me to write her a letter of recommendation. Damn! I knew that being nice was going to bite me in the ass. There goes an hour of my day. I contemplate telling Mel C. […]

The High School Boyfriend calls me about the old yearbooks. He leaves a long message on my voicemail thanking me for my thoughtful surprise package. I miss his call by seconds. I call him back moments later but he doesn’t pick up the phone. Maybe he’s in the bathroom or something. So I leave a […]

It took me all day yesterday to get over my irritation about having to write a cheery response email to The Mexican, my least favorite ex-boyfriend.

“When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap all the way to the edges of your field, or gather the gleanings of your harvest. You shall not pick your vineyard bare, or gather the fallen fruit of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the poor and the stranger.” Leviticus 19:9-10 […]

Does Any Dream Involving the 405 Freeway End Well?

I had the dream again. I’ve been having the same dream a lot lately. Last night I dreamt that I was in my car, heading southbound on the 405 freeway toward Westwood. In the dream I’m sitting in the backseat of my Volvo reading a script. It must be cold outside because I’m snuggled under […]
