I am a writer, director, performer in Chicago and a single mom in Evanston. I have, in the past, written for and performed in the show Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind as an ensemble member with The Neo-Futurists. I did that for about 10 years. It was fun. I also wrote book and lyrics for a musical called City Girl! and I created a couple environmental pieces called Alice and Fear that were pretty darn cool. And I co-wrote and performed in Sex! A Special Report From The News Show and Inside My Mouth. And I performed in Devolution, Missing Parts, 44 Plays for 44 Presidents, and Poker Night at the White House. All with The Neo-Futurists. Good times. But it's a difficult schedule to keep with two kids so I have mostly been writing and performing essays around Chicago of late. And now I have a blog.
I will warn you that I am many different things - because we all are. One entry may be a sweet, poignant piece about a mother's love. The next one might be a caustic rant about how much I tend to despise other suburban parents (not you, of course, you're different....) and the next week there might be a baudy entry about cybersex. Cause cybersex is fun, ya'll! The main thing to remember is that blogs are opinion - just one person's opinion based on one person's experience and that experience is probably different from yours. So maybe sometimes we'll disagree but I cannot offend you unless you CHOOSE to be offended by the opinion of a stranger and you should really not allow a stranger to exert that much power over your life. Why would you do that?
