My name’s Dara, and I write this blog. That’s me over there (I always travel in a cloud of balloons).

I’m a comedic actor and writer, and I basically use this blog as a means to practice my writing on a daily basis (just kidding. I want this blog to turn into a book, that turns into a movie, and I want Meryl Streep to play me regardless of age. She’s so versatile).

If you’re confused as to why this blog is called Brunch for Every Meal and what I write about… it’s hard to describe. I write about everything (dating, things I find annoying [which is a lot of things], food, reality Housewives from all walks of life), and the name is BFEM because I can tell you that if you really like brunch, you will probably enjoy half-reading this blog while you watch Ice Loves Coco (btw, that’s another thing I write about a lot). I know this because if you appreciate brunch and believe in its ideals of unapologetic fancy-shmancy-ness, the right to order pancakes even if you don’t get out of bed til noon, and judgement-free drinking of champagne before 3pm… then you might like the blog written by someone who also believes in those things.

  1. As much as I admire your obvious commitment to ” higher ideals” I must chasten you for not even mentioning that perennial favorite of the gentile brunch crowd “crepes” and can only hope that in hindsight you’ll properly reassess this glaring omission. Good Day!

  2. Haha I have a very good feeling that I am going to love following your blog. A) Meryl Streep should play anyone, of any age, at any time. She is epic and like you said – freakishly versatile. B) I am also an actor and writer so yay for commonalities! And C) Brunch is the best meal ever created. (Along with Breakfast for Dinner…because who doesn’t want to come home to a batch of pancakes and syrup after a long day at work?) Keep up the excellent writing!

  3. I just found you through the Humor tag on WordPress. I know I’m older than you (call me ancient), but I like your style. I read a few posts and your blog looks fun…that’s what I’m trying to do too. Long story short, I’m following your blog now. I like it. 🙂

  4. Hey! Thanks for dropping by and following my blog! So glad I cyberstalked you back, because I’m getting a kick out of your posts! Off to read more. Keep writing! 🙂

  5. I also travel in a cloud of balloons. I thought I was the only one … *single tear rolls down cheek* Alas, you’ve thrown my uniqueness in my face and danced on my all too common corpse. But, on the plus side, you made my brain chortle. And for that, I thank you. Adieu.

    Oh, and p.s, nope, you’re wrong. Don’t own a t.v. So ner.

  6. On most birthday cards, Instead of just signing my name, I several circles together, and then attach squiggly lines to the bottom of the circles, and then draw a small arrow describing that this a bunch of balloons for your birthday and fancy shmancy-ness sign my cute little name in loopy cursive.

    Brunch is the most underrated occasion for a group of people to eat mid afternoon, drink mimosa’s either heavily dressed up after church, or for a special event, or perhaps the polar opposite:wearing sunglasses and ball caps in your public pajama’s.

  7. * I draw several circles…” Pardon the dust. I’m not quite fully awake. I must get brunch soon or else I might turn into “99 Red Balloons” and fly away! Of course, getting brunch would not be appreciated on the company expense report.

  8. I have the nickname Bubbles..because my adoration and imbibing of champagne has deemed it appropriate by those close enough to see me in my cloud of bubbles. Brunch it is!

  9. hey some of the reasons I am doing a blog are the same reasons you are doing a blog, but I need to reach the goal(s) first because:
    1) I am older
    2) Meryl Streep is not that much older than I am so it will not be much of a stretch – you are too young and pretty and she will not be able to play your younger self

    love it. this is totally my life! great blog 🙂

  11. Love the blog! You have an awesome sense of humor, which I guess is a no brainer for a comedic actress and writer. I look forward to seeing more of your posts, and thanks for the follow!

  12. Hi there! You’re so good that you’ve surely been nominated already, but if not, consider yourself nominated by me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. It’s like a chain letter of love, and I’m sending it your way. =) Visit my blog to view my acceptance entry and get all the details…and congratulations!

  13. Hey Dara, I love following your blog, it’s definitely my favorite wordpress blog I’ve found so far! As such, I nominated you for a Leibster Blog Award! It’s easy and fun so hopefully you’ll enjoy it 🙂 check out eyechow.com today for the rules. I hope you choose to do it since I’m sure your responses will be hilarious! -Val

  14. Thanks for the follow, Dara – as one comedy writer/actor to another. 😉

    And because you did, I’ll let you in on a secret I’ve not yet revealed on my blog – I think Coco is one of THE HOTTEST women out there today, and definitely the hottest blonde I can think of. I mean, Ice T has the PERFECT taste in asses! Scrumptious.

    Granted, I don’t know what she sounds like or how she acts (and truth be told, I’d rather NOT know), but bodily… she is perfection. She ranks right up there with Angel Lola Luv, Christina Hendricks, and Anna Nicole Smith (back in her Playboy days).

    And here I’ll bet you thought you wouldn’t have anything in common with me, right? X)

  17. Hi Dara! I am so glad you found & followed me, thanks! I love the title BFEM….I actually figured this would be a food page 😉 We sound like w have alot in common (LA girls, woohoo!) so looking forward to reading….Ice loves Coco is good, but The Jonas show is better 😉 Cheers!

  18. I love your writing style and Meryl Streep is a fine choice to play you in a movie. You know who else is versatile? Queen Latifah. Keep that thought tucked away in the back of your mind incase things fall through with Meryl. Cheers, can’t wait to read more…

  19. Hi Dara! Many thanks for visiting my blog and for the follow, I really appreciate it! Love your blog, am signing up to follow you right now. So glad you found me, I’m smiling already 🙂

  23. LOVE that you always travel in a cloud of balloons (and maybe a tad jealous, too! lol. can i steal that off you?)

    and A LOT of things annoy me, too! haha. you’re definitely not the only one there.

    admittedly, “brunch for every meal” was what made me want to check your blog out and i’m glad i found what i’ve found because if it was a recipe blog, i would’ve sortakinda almost gagged (at the obviousness of it all).

    just found this blog yesterday but i love it already. legit.
