How is your spring going?

Pretty well, except good god my allergies are killing me. I'm starting to wonder if my mutant superpower is constantly leaking phlegm from my nose.
 
What have you worked on in the past year that you're most happy with?

I still really like the essay I wrote for the anthology Cat Is Art Spelled Wrong. It's probably the longest thing I've ever published. (Here's a shorter version of it that ran on The Awl.) 

I've also been working on a longer project that has been pretty satisfying, though kind of all over the place. I wish that it was in better shape so I could talk about it!
 
What’s your favorite brunch spot?

I don't really like brunch. Brunch is bad! Like, why waste your entire Sunday on mimosas? Anyway, if I had to go to brunch (aka if my parents are in town), I'd take them to Bar Corvo

What can people expect from your reading?

I always try to read something funny. I'm deciding between a couple possibilities.
