You know the butterflies you get in the pit of your stomach when you are texting, messaging, chatting, tweeting, snapping, or heretofore unknown form of social media-ing with a special someone?  It's...

Last night after spin class I took myself to a movie (a nice British period drama called Far From the Madding Crowd... I loved it, obviously!).  After getting myself settled in, the man sitting behind...

So in light of recently being added to the list “Mississippi Celebrities” on Twitter alongside the likes of Britney Spears, Channing Tatum, and OPRAH (oh my goodness Oprah, I’ve made it, y’all), I tho...

After a 5 week absence, I am finally back in New York, and have a message for my favorite (read: least favorite) faction of city folk:

Hipsters... Bless Your Heart.

I'm speaking exclusively to the male...

Good evening, all.  Your friendly neighborhood Emily Post(modern) is back with another lesson in etiquette.

I've been in Los Angeles for two weeks now and have been enjoying the warm weather more than...

One of the major themes that I explore on this blog is displacement, and the struggle that comes with trying to reconcile who you are with where you abide.  For me this comes two fold.  As I explained...

So last Friday morning I woke up at 6:00am, dressed up (as instructed) like I was attending “a nice dinner”, and walked the few blocks down from my apartment to ABC studios to stand in line with some...

​​Just when I thought the crazies had flown north for the summer.  You've missed them, I know.

But let's think about this one for a minute.  He wants to do my errands.  He wants to PayPal me for no rea...

So this past Sunday night were the Billboard Music Awards.  Now I'd be lying if I said I watched them.  Music awards shows have never really been my thing.  For instance last summer when the internet...

If you are a fan of the "Game of Thrones" television series on HBO, then you know just how often Sansa Stark's heart needs blessing.  Now for those of you who have not watched the show, or read the bo...

Well wasn't this a nice little "Welcome back to New York, Mary Lane!"?   Apparently giving a fella the benefit of the doubt after a terrible first line just isn't a good idea.  No matter how good he l...

This gem came in this morning while I was on my way to JFK to catch my flight to LA.  I'm here for an audition which is always stressful so this definitely helped ease the tension.

My name is Mary Lane Haskell and my two "claims to fame" are that I have Dolly Parton's fax number and that Reese Witherspoon once liked a post on my Instagram.  I am an actor, a writer, and a profound Chipotle enthusiast making my way in Los Angeles while trying to stay true to my family's southern roots, all with grace and a touch a good humor.  I'm so glad you're here!
