The Teen Movie Project
My friends and I were watching some 90s teen movie a while back, and we started talking about how fun it would be to be in one. Super fun, right? All of a sudden, I remembered that I wrote my own teen movie back in 1999, when I was 15 years old. It’s the most authentic teen movie script ever!
On December 11, 2011, we finished principal photography after a long month of shooting. I’ve been editing for what seems like millennia Stay tuned!
facts + figures
Not to be confused with Facts & Figures, facts + figures is a new online boutique I built with my BFF Rhonda. It features all handmade housewares, garden items, and “lifestyle accessories” (look, I work in marketing). Check it out!
Facts & Figures
On July 1, 2010, I started sculpting one new piece a day (currently, a
little lot less often than that) and posting the results on Tumblr. Check it out: Facts & Figures.
Planning my wedding
Oh yes, I went there.
Monday Night Dinner
Rhonda and I make dinner every
Monday Tuesday night. It’s usually themed. Recent menus: Italian food and candy “pills” (Dr. Mario), dinosaur-shaped pancakes (Jurassic Park), and the mashed potato mountain from Close Encounters of the Third Kind. You can see the ever-growing Facebook photo album right here.
The first edition of 30 Ghosts was a present for my boyfriend: a book of 30 haunted locations around San Francisco for his 30th birthday. I wrote it for an audience of one, using photos I didn’t have the right to print commercially. But David happens to be a talented photographer himself, so we’re slowly piecing together a second edition for public consumption. If you want a preview of this first edition, you can check it out here.
David’s Quote of the Day
After the 95th time I told my boyfriend “I should start a Twitter account to record all the weird things you say,” I started a Twitter account to record all the weird things he says. You can see it here.
San Francisco Wiffle Ball League (under new management)
Co-founded by Rhonda, the San Francisco Wiffle Ball League ran for three wildly successful seasons before we both got old and moved to the suburbs. We’ve got about 35 regulars in the league, and for the last three years, Rhonda and I have made trading cards for everyone who plays even a single game. We even had a trophy!
In 2012, we turned the League over to some of our favorite players, who now run the SFWBL. We mostly organize via our league group on Facebook, so add us and join in! Sign up and you’ll be the first to hear when the next season starts. There’s no weekly commitment–just drop in when you feel like it!
Recess (in post-production)
One of my most creative and talented friends, Merci, is producing a short stop-motion film that she wrote and directed. Very kindly, she asked me to make and manipulate the dozen or so puppets for the film, and I am still kind of ridiculously excited about it. I spent most of October 2010 in the studio we rented, building tiny people, and then we shot the whole thing over the course of a weekend. Currently, it’s in post-production, and the final piece should be available to view in its entirety very soon. Hooray! (You can scroll back a page or two and watch my progress on the sculpting blog, if you’re so inclined.)
San Francisco Tea Party* Society (on hiatus)
The SFTPS met every 1-2 months at one of the member’s houses and usually involved a theme. My favorites were “Tea Is for Terror” (a Halloween theme) and “Mr. T(ea).”
The SFTPS took a hiatus in 2010, but Rhonda and I are reworking the group and planning to bring it very soon. Stay tuned!
Join the Google Group if you want to meet up with us next time.
*Note: We actually drink tea, so if you show up expecting to discuss politics, we’ll all be a little embarrassed.
