On $900 Craigslist Ticket to Lena Dunham's NYC Book Reading Still Available

Oh my God I've seen Zadie Smith speak and it was THE BEST. She was speaking at NYU, and people were asking her all sort of young-struggling-writer questions, and she just Could Not Relate. She wasn't rude about it, she was very matter of fact, and it was just amazing to see the perspective of someone who published an international bestseller right out of college. When did you decide you wanted to be a writer? "I didn't really...I just wrote this book and it happened to sell really well, so then I became a writer. I don't even know if I wanted to be a writer." What's your writing process like? "I don't think you can force yourself to write...I just write when I'm feeling creative." It was awesome. Would that we could all be Zadie Smith!!

On AirBnb Ruined Our Lives and Turned Us Into Entitled City Dwellers

@srmattew Seriously. I would definitely pay $14-1500 for my own bathroom in an apt that had backyard access!

On Riding in Car Services With Boys

You can do that, but I've found you'll almost always get a better rate by calling the livery service directly. (I have also ended up in some sketchy situations with illegal car services, and I now prefer to have my trip on record!)

On Look, There's Nothing Wrong With Being an Ernie, Okay?

Ernie for life. I try to be a Bert sometimes, to no avail.

On Being the Bert

@cryptolect also I don't want to be the Anti-Burt because I have a weird thing for 70's Burt Reynolds, ok

On Being the Bert

@kellyography Definitely not a Thing. Though it would seem handy! I organized my closet by colors once, and it was pretty nice because I could find anything away, but I didn't stick with it the next time I did laundry because I am indeed a Chaos Muppet.
