Eileen Dougharty has taken a year off from performing in hopes of cultivating a life worth chronicling. She’s pleased to report that her hiatus has been 22% baller and 78% blissfully boring. When she’s not passing out peanuts and snark to the flying public, she writes daily to remain within a stone’s throw of sane.
Three things you might not know about Eileen...
1) In my next life, I wish to be a poet. I envision myself as the unlikely love child of Warsan Shire and Billy Collins. I reserve the right to make it happen in this life if I ever get my shit together.
2) If we’ve shared a juicy, substantive conversation, know that your thoughts are my fuel. Small talk is my daily death by a thousand yammering cuts.
3) I like to believe my cynicism is based in scorched idealism as opposed to rampant negativity...I imagine it smelling more like cinnamon toast than burning flesh.
