When most people think about a college spring break, they imagine sun-soaked beaches, palm trees, and friends clinking Coronas. They don’t usually picture embarking on a road trip to Montreal, Canada with their sister and mother. Though not a typical spring vacation, my family and I explored Montreal for three days last week. Visiting the…

He was fat. As though his stomach contained a disorderly boiler, that would blast out hot air and whimper and shrill.   He was addicted to those things we are all addicted to: The sibilant near-silence of walking on snow at 3am to visit your mistress.

I got to admit, I love She-Hulk. There’s something ridiculously charming about a female hero that not only is comfortable with herself enough to have a sense of humor, but one that has a respectable job on the side. I realize that this may be a strange statement to some, but what one has to…

This is a column written for the Georgetown Voice. It can be found on their website here. I can’t ski. My trips down most beginner-level mountains involve more time spent facedown in the snow than time spent actually moving. I also cannot shoot a gun.
