Press/ Other Writings


Where’s My Toothbrush? is a place to retell stories when everyone around me is sick of hearing about them. I’d like to keep it that way.

I also tend to write about other, more engaging matters, on other websites and various publications. Some of these are listed here. I’d welcome any freelance opportunity under the working conditions that you/ your company:

  1. Spell my name correctly
  2. Make empty promises about The Replacements making a new album
  3. Appreciate the fact that I just wrote out a numerical list of working stipulations, none of which are all that important nor do I plan to adhere to

If this sounds like something you want to get involved with, you can contact me here.

When I was 12, a local news reporter interviewed me about Prince Charles coming to Canada. I asked the reporter, straight-faced, “Who is Prince Charles?” By the time I got home, my mom (rightly mortified) had already taped over this news bit with an episode of General Hospital.
