Baby Brother’s Blog

So you guys hear me talk about my brother Alex a lot. I don’t write as often about my youngest brother, Chase, because he hasn’t had a strong web presence…until now! Chase just started a blog. Called The Popinjay. About menswear. I know you’re like, “Kerry, we’re reading a blog called Welcome to Ladyville here, what are we supposed to do with menswear?” Well, I don’t know, you guys. Maybe some of you are guys. Or maybe you have brothers or boyfriends or male best friends or stylish dads or whatever.

Anyway, Chasey’s blog is great and it’s just very him. I doubt you know any other 17 year old boys who are even half as much into ties. Both my brothers now have blogs! Now if only we could get my parents in on this action. I bet my mom could write a great TMZ-style takedown of other kids’ parents (whatever, Mom, you know it’s true), and Alex has already hypothesized that my dad’s blog would be called “Pizzas I Have Eaten.”

Hannah and My Brothers

I can tell I’m trying to procrastinate when I start thinking about which sister from Hannah and Her Sisters my brothers and I are most like.

For the record, Chase is clearly Dianne Wiest’s character. That one was easy. I wondered for awhile whether I was Mia Farrow’s character or Alex was, but then I realized of course I would adopt a bunch of kids and then Michael Caine would leave me. So Alex is obviously Barbara Hershey’s character, the artist.

Obviously my work is going great.

Probably the Funniest Thing I’ve Ever Seen

In case you didn’t know (but you probably did, because I talk about it all the time), my brother Alex is in a comedy group called Baby Mountain. I can definitely say I’m their number one fan, and not even just because of my brother. I just think they’re so funny. Over the weekend, their school did something called the 48 hour shootout. Here’s an explanation from someone who didn’t really pay attention when she had it explained to her (me): each team gets a prop, a title, a genre, and a line, and then they have 48 hours to make an entire short film. This is the one my brother worked on…OR DID HE?

Why don’t I have a Baby Mountain t-shirt yet? I deserve one. I am the best hype girl.

My Dad

My dad is quite the artist. In the past, he’s made me a collage of pictures of Alex wearing an apron, a Pretty In Pink shirt, and now this:

This is truly some one-of-a-kind artwork. A regular Andy Warhol, that’s Papa W. Anyway, I love this picture so, so, so much and I’m going to display it prominently for as long as I live. Mostly I’m just glad Dad left my “beauty mark” intact. God forbid he photoshop that out.
