Wow thank you so much! I came up with the Rick & Morty idea when I was in LA earlier this year and was out with the woman who dated the first boy I ever loved right after I did. We're strangers, but she reached out over Instagram DM when she saw I was in town and I was extremely curious so I met her for a drink. It was very fun! She keeps crystals in her glovebox and has recently gotten back "into faith," and "has visions," and "knows when the reckoning is coming." Anyway! I was with this woman at a bar in Silver Lake when a guy she knows and who is the son of a beloved soap opera actress started talking to me. I had no idea how to flirt with him because everyone is LA is very hot and it's disorienting, and also he kind of looked like a slightly older Timothée Chalamet. In a panic, I asked him if he watches Rick & Morty. Truly I don't know where this question came from because I don't want the show. He said yes and then started detailing some of his favorite plot lines and all I had to do was nod along! It must have been charming because he did the are you coming home with me? hover at the end of the night, but I ended up just going back to my hotel to eat peanut M&Ms alone. I did this same thing back in Brooklyn a few times and it was equally effective. Boys love Rick & Morty!
What are you looking forward to in 2018?
Reconnecting with the soap opera actress's son in LA to see if there's a love connection.
What can people expect from your reading?
I think I'm going to read about some of the times I got drunk as a teen in Texas. So people can expect to be very awed by how cool I was between the ages of 14-17, and to come away with a few cocktail recipes that incorporate Red Bull.
