CROTCH HEAT, it’s getting hot in here

I’m guest hosting Write Club SF! So of course the title of this month’s show is CROTCH HEAT!

I’ve been a fan of this show for a long time, then I had the pleasure of writing for it and competing two or three times, I can’t remember, and it was a blast! 6 writers, go head to head, in a battle with their words! I wrote one of my funniest short stories because of this show and I feel it is a GREAT way to get people to enjoy literary talent, and challenge writers to write new shit!

Now don’t get me wrong, I have actually always loved Valentine’s day, but aaaall my friends hate it, they hate it so much, they freak the f out every year, so in honor of their deep hatred, instead of having the February show be Romance themed, I decided to make the writers explore the themes of doing the deed, going all the way, fornicatin’, sexy time, bumping uglies, gettin’ nasty, because fuck Valentines Day.

Our participating lovers: Julian Shendelman, Na’amen Tilahun, Mandy Hu, Zoe Young, Kay Nilsson and Damian Ledbetter!

3 rounds of 2 writers going head to head over a pair of opposing topics with 7 minutes each—7 MINUTES ONLY—to sway the crowd.

The bouts:

FIST vs. FINGER,

SPIT vs. SWALLOW,

TOP vs. BOTTOM. (Because these words are neglected by drugstore love plushes.)

Audience picks the winner. Winner’s charity gets money!

At The Make Out Room 3225 22nd Street in SAN FRANCISCO!

I got published by THE TUSK! Holiday Fat Shamed? FAT SHAME BACK!

1934367_10153120381181086_5678847578119267958_nHey everyone, one of my favorite favorite literary journals EVER The Tusk published my new piece How To Survive The Holidays with Parents Who Won’t Stop Fat Shaming You, I’M SO EXCITED! What a great way to start 2016. I wrote this while drinking eggnog and eating xmas cookies and thinking about all the awful crap fat people go through during the holidays. Side note, my parents are wonderful wonderful people who are growing and learning and very very loving and supportive of me as a living person, but yeah, I’ve had to work hard to change their approach then speaking to me about my body. They’ve actually done really well, and work hard to understand that my body is mine and mine alone to worry about, and that respecting that will help me make better life choices, whenever I goddamn feel like it. But yeah, if you’re fat, fabulous, and loving life like me, you’ve probably had some of these experiences happen to you, there’s the best part: YOU DON’T GOTTA DEAL WITH THAT SHIT. If they won’t stop, fat shame back, turn the tables, jiggle their bellies, see how they feel. Rise above, you are the better person. Eat some Cake. Also, remember, experiences like these, they don’d define you, we’ve all been brain washed to hate fat people, we can unbrain wash everyone! You can get past it, after you do, there’s always waffles. Love yourself, and don’t be too hard on your family, it comes from a good place, and if they won’t change, you can always just put your head phones on, walk away, meet your friends at a bar and share some carneasada fries. HAPPY FAT NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Please read and share with your friends!
