I’ve ruined so many undies from unexpectedly getting my period so I just drew it on there permanently
I started writing in college. I had a great playwriting teacher who said ‘you should write’. It almost hadn’t occurred to me that that was something I could do. I was a theater fanatic when I was in high school and –– Wendy Wasserstein? Caryl Churchill? I could count on one hand the women I knew who wrote plays. Every great American playwright was a man. And so I just sort of were like, ‘they’re men, they’re probably smarter than me, I can’t do it’. And then someone was like ‘Why did you ever think that? You can totally do it.’ But I think if you don’t have examples, it’s very hard to imagine yourself doing it.

I’m amused because like there’s all these tall British celebrities like Nicholas Hoult
who is 6’2, Benedict Cumberbatch
who is 6’, Tom Hiddleston
who is 6’2, Matt Smith
who is 5’11”, David Tennant
who is 6’1, John Barrowman
who is 6’.
Then there’s Martin Freeman
at a whopping 5’6”
I’m taller than him and I’m of the vagina having variety. Poor baby.
