Woeful Spotlight: Julie Kitayama

Julie’s essay in Woe of the Road proves that fairytale endings are bunch of hooey, despite what animatronic cartoon characters want you to believe.  


What is your greatest place on Earth?

I don’t know if it’s the greatest, but my favorite place to be is in my back yard early Sunday mornings.  I wake up really early, make a fresh pot of percolator coffee and sit in silence for hours reading the paper.  Luckily I only get the Sunday paper or I would be late for work every day.  

If you could be any animal, what would you be?

I would be one of these little dogs that ladies carry around in their purses.  That way I could see the world and everyone would tell me how cute I am and I wouldn’t have to compliment anyone in return. I could also growl at people that I don’t like without getting called bitch like I do when I growl at people I don’t like now.  

We hear you're into time travel. Where would you like to go?  

If I could time travel, I would go back to the day I bought the dress for my junior prom.  That was a mistake.  No one north of the Mason Dixon line should wear a hoop skirt dress.  They should have a warning label...“Cotillion Only”.

Promote yourself --- where can we find your work? 

Most of my published writing has been in the form of Chinese food restaurant reviews for an online Canadian newspaper.  That kind of work pays surprisingly well and I’m a big foodie.  My unpublished writing can be heard in my stand up comedy performances.  I perform regularly around New England and irregularly in other states although rarely below the Mason Dixon line.  I don’t have the right outfits for that...anymore.
