I’m going to be contributing a column to Outside Magazine online about doing out-of-doors activities that scare the shit out of me. First up, by way of introducing myself: looking for a moose.*
*It is really easy to scare the shit out of me.
ETA: now the link goes to the actual article, and not just the picture of the moose again. Ugh. 

Sometimes, I’ll see that a person on Twitter has two zillion (yes, actual number) followers on Twitter and I don’t really get it. The person might tweet stuff such as “yes USA gymnastics!” and “I love to eat cereal so much you guys” and it makes me feel out of touch and lame and just pathetic for a number of reasons that have to do with me and not them, obviously… And then, there are some people who write so well and are so funny that I really think everyone needs to read them. Katie Heaney is that person. I’ve been reblogging her stuff since “My Period Takes Me Shopping" and I’m never going to stop. If you haven’t started reading her essays yet, I think you’re missing out.
