Last Sunday the final season of Downton Abbey premiered on PBS, and people all over these United States sipped tea, donned their finest hats, and watched the beginning of the end.  For me there was on...

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...

Valentine's Day... A.K.A. Single Awareness Day.  Out of my 25 years on this earth, there have only been two years where when February 14th rolled around I had myself a Valentine.  The first was in 200...

Anniversaries are something that I usually don't forget.  My parent's wedding anniversary is December 28th... I moved to New York on August 26th... I joined Netflix on a Saturday in September.  But fo...

As a student of the theater I am no stranger to “subtext”.   In school we would spend weeks pouring over scripts figuring out what our characters were REALLY thinking or REALLY saying in any given mom...

Let’s talk about Netflix:  the phenomenon that has recently joined the likes of cell phones, modern medicine, and Chipotle at the top of our “WHAT DID WE EVER DO WITHOUT THEM?” list.  I was skeptical...

Sushi: a seemingly safe date activity.  It’s casual.  It’s easy.  It makes you seem like you're adventurous.  If it’s a first date then ordering alone can serve as icebreaking conversation for at leas...

I’m a romantic.  Guilty as charged.  I cry watching romantic comedies ("Love, Actually" gets me EVERY TIME no questions asked).  I love looking at wedding photos – if I know the people in them it’s ju...

Today, friends, we have a very special edition of Stupid Cupid.  What makes it special, you ask?  Well in this case I can't help but feel like I'm a part of something much bigger.  Like were I to answ...

Just in case you couldn’t tell from the slight homage in my blog’s subtitle (or from the countless references I've made up to this point), I am a HUGE Jane Austen fan.  Do you know the girl in the boo...

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.

I mean... I do...

First things first:  I saw “The Glass Menagerie” on Broadway tonight.  It was spectacular.  Aside from The Bard, Tennessee Williams is my favorite playwright, and this play is one of his best.  I love...

Now this is just what a girl new to online dating wants to wake up to the day after yet another Valentines Day alone drinking a bottle of wine in her bathtub.  Things are looking GREAT as far as my fu...

So I've joined OkCupid and I've come to the conclusion that trying to fill out my profile sober is the worst decision I've made all year. As one of the "things I'm good at" I listed "going through air...

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!
