According to Trish

not worth reading since 2009


During my sexual assault, I had a few minutes to think about how I wanted things to go. Sure, there was the distraction of the guy’s tongue in my mouth and his body pressing me against the wall … and the fact that one of his hands was on one of my boobs … but knowing that his mind was otherwise occupied meant I had a few minutes to plan. I thought about grabbing a lamp and bashing him over the head. But the problem...

You know when you wake up with a mostly empty pizza box in your bed? Like, the self loathing is definitely there but it’s way overshadowed by “Awww yeah … THAT was a party …” That’s pretty much how I feel about the fact that I’ve watched the entirety of 30 Rock at least three times. (Yes. “At least.” I’m only copping to three.) BUT NOW I NEED TO YELL BECAUSE 30 ROCK IS...

But we do not “get” each other at this...

I took some Somnis the other night before I went to bed. This stuff often gives me crazy dreams. Here’s a good one. I was working in the most dismal of offices. Gray, padded cubicle walls. Very dim lighting with lots of dark corners, like a dirty aquarium. Everyone, including me, was wearing ill-fitting pants suits, made of those soul-crushing polyester blends that scream “I’m only wearing this because it meets the...

I woke up this morning and saw a headline titled “50 Challenges You Can Start Today.” I wonder what sort of person reads that and goes “HELL YES, MOTHERFUCKER! Bring it ON!” I know those people exist. I am not one of them. The fact that I have to work today AND pick up kids from school AND go to CVS AND cook dinner so people can leave early for evening activities AND go get some straggling crap out of my old...
