My Management Philosophy

(or Am I Girlboss-ing Yet?) I know it's not a standard anniversary that people acknowledge, but four years ago last Friday was my first day as a manager. I remember being absolutely terrified, even though I'd effectively been managing the team for months--the fact that it was now official made it seem a lot harder. ...

The Secret Diary of Julie Palmer: Part 2

(or F--k, I Was an Awkward Pre-teen) I mentioned a few weeks ago that I had some more diary entries to post. These ones are from when I was around middle school age, and they're just as awkward as the first batch--actually, more so. Here they are, with my present-day commentary. August 19, 1994 (10 ...

Day 12: Diane Evans

(Or: "Fuck you, Albert") I mentioned in my Log Lady post that I'd also be doing a costume from the new season of Twin Peaks, and here she is: Diane Evans. Although she didn't appear in the original series, Diane's been a legend since we first met Dale Cooper as he talked into his tape ...

Day 11: Regan MacNeil

(Or: "What an excellent day for an exorcism") The Exorcist scared the crap out of me as a pre-teen. I'm not sure my parents would have let me watch it, but I was able to rent it while visiting my Grandma. I watched a few things at her place that I probably wasn't old enough ...

Day 10: Joyce Byers

(Or: "I sound crazy... You think I don't know that?") Confession: I actually had a whole other post planned for today. But when I realized that it's the season 2 premiere of Stranger Things, I clearly had to scrap that other post. I think this is the most excited I've ever been for a new ...

Day 9: Leatherface

(Or: "My family's always been in meat.") Yes, I know, that quote wasn't actually from Leatherface, but other than grunts and screams, he doesn't really have any lines. Anyway, I already mentioned a couple weeks ago how much I like this movie. Yes, there are some things that are problematic about it (especially its treatment ...

Day 8: Wednesday Addams

(Or: "Are they made from real Girl Scouts?") Last week, I talked about how much I love Morticia Addams. I also have a soft spot for Wednesday. Maybe it's her all-black wardrobe, but it's more likely her hilarious quips and inability to suffer fools: Joel: Wednesday, do you think that maybe someday you might want ...
