@Nnedi She'd heard you punched the gym in the face and wanted to learn your ways.@sajennings, see: @RikerGoogling@bostonturgy Right, it'd be online. Thinking they'd be helpful, if used judiciously.How can this fly possibly still be alive after how many times I've thumped it with this legal pad. It is like a Robo-Fly.@teamswangelista Yeah. I'd be linking to online versions of articles I'd written, which seems a better use of them.@alliemullin It totally is. Just all the more ironic in theatre, an impermanent art form at its heart.@teamswangelista Hmmm, okay. Noted!People on admissions committees: how do you feel about hyperlinks in résumés? Totally helpful? Totally annoying? #2amtThe misery of American theatre is due to its trying to make the impermanent, permanent.@thadman Ooooh! I dinna know about Vine.

Deal with it.mah brang is broken@monicabyrne13 no one will ever understand until we prove it to them time and time again. Durham is a special place.
Retweeted by Monica Byrne@minter Yo @MajorTheBull @clarioncontent @bullcity @bullcityforward let's get on it. We need to make "Durham" a verb.I wonder if the @RudeMechs ever had to deal with it. And for how long, before they were taken seriously.@minter We should conjugate that verb. "durham, durhame, durhamung, durhama"@monicabyrne13 Your reply to them should be "Do you even Durham, bro?"
Retweeted by Monica Byrne...I will assume I don't have to explain it. Thank you God. Amen.On one hand, I hate defaulting to a defensive posture. On the other hand, the condescension I've gotten regarding my home base is amazing.Will they believe me.Or why it's an amazing place to make theatre. Or why I choose to make it here rather than in New York. Or Chicago. Or LA. Or. Or. Or.How much of my @NewDramatists application essay do I have to spend explaining what Durham even is.@jeremyvancleve ok ok good excuse@jeremyvancleve jeremy for the love of god why are you not at @cocoacinnamon@JaybirdOBerski Cold brains, unloved, untouched, unglued, alone at last.@JaybirdOBerski Was I?
