I mean I know the dogs are fine; apparently Harvey has been deep-sea-diving in the pillows on my in-laws’ couch.

I didn’t know what to do today so I got my hair cut short. The stylist spoke minimal English and seemed perplexed that I was coming to him for a cut instead of waiting until I get home. We communicated through chopping pantomimes near my shoulders. He asked where in the US I was from. In Thailand I said Atlanta, which was met with a sigh and “I cannot say anything nice” from a Frenchman. So this time I said Philadelphia, and the stylist looked confused, and I said, by New York. “Oh! Queens!” he said, and that’s fine, and I’ve been married/been away for three weeks now and I mostly miss my dogs.

Also we found the Park Hyatt from that movie and I was like finally I can sit down and have a drink for a sec but one of their bars was closed and the other was only serving tea?!? I had lipstick on and everything.


Tokyo is the most bewildering place I have ever been and I have been having a constant rolling panic attack since landing in Narita yesterday. The customs guys said “konichiwa” and I said “hi,” like an idiot (or maybe I’m living life with a “hai, and?” attitude like Liz says.) I can’t navigate the streets, I can’t talk to anyone, I don’t know what anything costs, I can’t get the food that took hours to procure in my goddamn face because I can’t do chopsticks, but I saw this sign today and was relieved because yes, yes I do know how to sit on a toilet.

I am on some Thai island. It is idyllic. It is also hot!! I am not proud but sometimes after a swim/after a curry I just need to chill out in the bungalow with the ceiling fan. There is only one English-language channel. For the past ~50 hours, it had been playing nonstop episodes (no commercials) of “House.” Today, this. Who do I speak to?!?!?

Update: former “House” channel now plays nonstop “Downton Abbey”

There are dogs everywhere here- I guess they’re stray, but they seem reasonably well-fed, everyone is excited to be in their presence, they live on a beautiful island, and their tails wag when you say “hello, puppy.” This one has decided he belongs with us, probably because we snuck him bacon at breakfast. 

I will probably never identify as a “mrs” but I do identify as a person who has a husband who will squire me around on a motorbike. As a result I have a Birkenstock-shaped tan line on my toes. Sorry.

Seriously the main thing to look at here is a big rock shaped like a dick, I’m not complaining, just providing context for the House thing.
