Another Epilogue: More Popular Than Spending Cuts

Well, the debt ceiling has gone from crisis to fixed-ish (in the exact way a commenter predicted).  I’m curious how this powerhouse committee of 12 is going to  go; we may even get some tax-code reform!  (Wait, is that a Republican thing to cheer for — I’m so confused these days.)

In other less dramatic news…

I had to duck out of most of my guest posting obligations this month with everything going on, and This Blogger Makes Fun of Stuff is taking a short vacation, but where I have managed to go has been fantastic:

10 Things I Regret Teaching My Children: This is one of my favorite pieces that I’ve written. I don’t have much to add to the title. You should just go read it. And laugh. Or decide that I’m the worst parent ever. Yay!

If you’re more local, I’m participating in the lecture series Beyond Barbie: Piecing Together Today’s Woman. The series begins on Sept. 22 and continues for seven Thursdays from 7-9 p.m.. My night, Life in the First Person: Women’s Stories Uncovered, is Thursday, November 3rd. I’m working with some awesome women like Valley Haggard (creative nonfiction writer), Gigi Amateau (novelist), Denise Bennett (storyteller), Tarfia Faizullah (poet), Julie Geen (freelance writer), and Shelia Gray, (performance artist). I’m the token blogger! Tickets are $10 for one night or $50 for the entire series. Read more about it on Susan Singer’s site. Or just go buy your ticket!

I also was sent some hilariousness:

Thank you for supporting the people who support me. It’s like socialism!

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.
