Hitched: Getting Through The Rough Patches

Amy & Will Grief
The five stages of grief over Amy Poehler and Will Arnett's breakup. Read More »

I woke up last Sunday morning — well, I don’t know that I was truly awake, but at least I wasn’t in bed any more — and stumbled to the kitchen for a giant glass of water with which to defuzz my thoroughly whiskey-fied mouth. In my hangover haze, I glanced across the living room to the coffee table, which held two empty glasses and a piece of old mail with my late-night scrawl on the back. It was a playlist.

We’d started with Darius Rucker’s new single, “True Believers,” because Patrick and I are true believers in pop country music. Now we are, anyways — I used to have more than a little detached irony mixed in with my Kenny Chesney appreciation, but that’s long since disappeared over the years of my relationship with Patrick, whose genuine love for the genre is both charming and contagious.

It’s becoming something of a tradition for the two of us: we spend a Saturday evening hanging out at the bar with a group of Austin feminists and allies that meet monthly to shore up our belief in the world being a livable place, and then we come home, drink whiskey on the rocks and watch music videos for hours. We sing along. We dance with each other. We trade stories about where we were when this or that song was popular. We debate the musical merits of the Zack Brown Band as musical successor to Jimmy Buffet. Keep reading »

The 5 Stages Of Amy Poehler And Will Arnett Breakup Grief

Where were you when you heard Amy Poehler and Will Arnett were breaking up? I was absentmindedly checking my Facebook, when all of a sudden everyone in my feed started posting NOOOOO! and There’s no hope for any of us! and Love is a crock of shit! We weren’t just being melodramatic (no, never!): Amy and Will really made it seem like two smart, funny people could find each other and make stupid cute big serious babies. Can you blame us for feeling like the rug — the way we understood the world! — has been pulled out from underneath us?

Fortunately we have a map for our grief. Back in the late ’60s, psychologist Elizabeth Kubler-Ross wrote a book called On Death and Dying, which analyzed the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and finally, acceptance. I think you might recognize some of them in the way we’re coping with the Arnett-Poehler breakup…

  • NOOOOOOOOO!!!  Amy Poehler and Will Arnett have confirmed to Us Weekly that they are separating after nine years of marriage. They have two big serious babies together, Abel and Archie Arnett. Our faith in love’s endurance is forever shattered. If these two crazy kids can’t make it, who can? I guess this means the blind item from Dlisted a few weeks ago is actually true.  [BuzzFeed]

"Ask Amy!"

Is there something wrong with me that I totally relate to “Ask Amy,” Amy Poehler’s video advice series for teen girls? Because I still tuck my dress into my panties all the time and embarrass myself in front of everyone, like, every week. When Amy Poehler gives a gentle lecture about needing to learn how to laugh at yourself, it sounds so easy. Her sons Archie and Abel are lucky, lucky kids. [YouTube]

Amy Poeher, comedy goddess that she is, can’t not say funny stuff at all times. During a recent talk at the 92nd Street Y, Poehler answered a few questions from Tumblr users, like “What makes Will Arnett cry?” and “What’s the first time you remember making people laugh?” Also, Poehler recommends we all make out to the new Usher song “Climax,” which she guarantees will be a future strlp club hit. No doubt.
