How is your spring going?

Excellent! I have purchased a bike online, which makes me feel like the nerdiest adult. But once it comes in the mail and I assemble it, figure out how to pump the tires, get used to riding it without being hit by cars, and decorate it with stickers so I look like a hip teen who has had a bike forever instead of using a credit card to buy a brand-new one from a website called "Critical Cycles", WATCH OUT WORLD. I'm basically gonna be Ilana from Broad City.

What have you worked on in the past year that you're most happy with?

That paragraph about my new bike, tied with this tweet and getting a length of 10,000 in Slither.

What’s your favorite brunch spot?

Brunch makes me feel like a person who would buy a bike online.

What can people expect from your reading?

I have a half-finished humor piece about anxiety that I've had open in a Google doc for long enough that it has become its own new anxiety. So maybe I'll use this reading as a motivator to finish it!
