Thanks For The Soup, Jesus
While attempting to Google the inventor of Matzo (Matzah? Matzoh?) Ball Soup, so I could properly thank him, posthumously, for the magically delectable cure-all, I instead stumbled across the inventor of Spray Pancake Batter. Truth. I paused, momentarily, in confusion. Then pressed on. I finally came across a single article claiming to sufficiently detail the history of my favorite Jewish...
Keeping it Together
Monday: “Hi Stacie, It’s Ron from Ford. Just letting you know that you have been put on hold this Thursday for the cover of Scientific American Mind. I will call you to confirm the booking.” Tuesday: “You’re confirmed for Thursday. I’ll email you the call sheet.” Thursday: “So we think we’re going to have your hair flowing out behind you,...
A Christmas Story
Aunt Nancy got her turkey all prepped and ready for Christmas dinner. The less-than-aesthetically-pleasing slash generally unappetizing parts of the turkey were tossed into a bowl in the sink. “Carson, can you take those turkey parts out to the dogs?” Aunt Nancy yelled to her youngest son. Aunt Nancy heard the door slam behind Carson as he ran out...
Kitchen Conversations With My Mom
Mom: I'm finally going to get to look at all these old photos Aunt Helen always said she didn't have.

Earlier this year, I purchased a GroupOn for Cardio Barre, at their new location in Beverly Hills. $40 for ten classes that are normally 16 bucks each?! And so close to my apartment?! Yes, please! Must be redeemed by December 16th. Dude. Totally fine. I have months! I could use 10 classes up in a week. … Well. I work in Santa Monica, soooo that pretty much ruled out getting back to BH...

I Saw Some Throne-age
One of my coworkers just asked if I went to the JayZ-Kanye concert last night. I experienced an overwhelming desire to tell her I went H.A.M. #probablyagoodthingirestrainedmyself
A Nice Little Sunday
There are probably 3 questions tumbling (like that?) through your head right now: 1. “Hey Stace, how was the 30th Annual Venice Canals Holiday Boat Parade?! 2. “Omg. Stace. How much are you loving your new Blackberry?!” 3. “Dude. When was the last time you, like, officially skinned your knee? Like, 2nd grade style?” Oh, wow! Guess what?! I can answer all three of...

Why Can't a Girl Just Be Nice
improbablygonnabeacatlady linked me to a terrifying email, penned by an investment banker (shocking), after a first date mysteriously turned out to be a last date. I have included the contents of the email below, along with my notes. My notes are in bold, as Tumblr apparently did not appreciate my original color scheme. Hi Lauren, I’m disappointed in you. I’m disappointed that I haven’t gotten a...

VIP Children are Definitely Too Cool For Me
When I was searching volunteer opportunities on L.A. Works today, I stumbled across a post titled “Activities with VIP Youth”. Several things went through my head. Why do VIP kids need volunteers to hang out with them? Can’t they at least afford a “cool nanny”? How does a child go about becoming VIP? How are they already so...
