Burn Before Reading: A Carly Allen Story

Supergirl Is Back & So Am I

My mother’s always insisting I write more. It’s been about five months and nothing has changed. Still the same old Mom yelling at me to write and still the same old me nodding and drinking iced coffee and ignoring her.

However, here I am, writing.

I’m writing because last night I came face to face with the realization that the world is being subjected to YET ANOTHER season of Supergirl. And I mean literally face to face. I went to see Colette last night and there was this massive Supergirl poster just waiting for me to be photographed in front of it.

Did anyone ask for this? Is anyone still watching? Is Supergirl even a character on her own show anymore? All of these questions will be answered on Sunday the 14th.

You may be asking, does Supergirl pay you to write about it incessantly? No. I just continue to choose to yell into the void about a show only two people care about. I’m so disappointed that a show with an insane amount of potential continues to let me down at every single turn.

However, whoever runs their Twitter account is FULLY aware of the fact that the only people left watching are people who have crushes on Lena Luthor, as evidenced by this tweet.

Will I be doing Supergirl recaps this season? No, probably not. Sorry to disappoint all four of you who read them. I can hear my mother rejoicing somewhere.

What’s been up with you guys? Cool, cool. Love the fact that this is not a back and forth conversation. No, I really do. I’m not good with small talk.

Speaking of talking, I’ve been doing a lot of it. Like A LOT, A LOT. I’ve conned three people into letting me be on their podcasts. Yes, that’s right. If you’ve been reading these posts and sitting their thinking, god, I wonder just how melodious Tina’s voice is, well, you can now find out. Check out these three podcasts. I talk about a wide range of subjects, from seeing Alicia Silverstone in Clueless in my formative years to being the family disappointment for wanting to go on The Bachelorette to my light Twitter stalking of Alex Guarneschelli. They are a TREAT:

Do You Queer What I Queer

Maybe you’re like, dear lord, Tina, I do not want to hear what you sound like because you are insufferable. To that I say, you can read a new story of mine instead! One of my short stories was selected to be in the fifth annual NaNoWriMo LA Anthology. How fancyyyyy. My story is called The Beginning, Middle, and End of the World, and it’s about the magic of Dolly Parton. I am not kidding in the slightest. In an anthology full of dark and mysterious short stories, be the Dolly Parton light you wish to see in the world. You can check it out on Amazon here.

That’s it for me right now. My birthday is next week, so I’m going to use that as an excuse to not write a lot here. I don’t know, maybe I will. Maybe 25 will be the year I get good at this blog again. See ya later.
