Happy 2016, dear hearts.  I have been away a very long time... moving my life across the country, filming a little movie, and going into full mourning over the Chipotle E. Coli outbreak have kept me very busy this fall.  But it's a new year and I'm ready to recommit my...

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 late on a Friday night and you're curled up in bed with a book and a...

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 2005, my sophomore year of high school when my two best girlfriends from...

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 for whatever reason, my one year anniversary as The Displaced Debutante...

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 moment. It always drove me crazy.  I mean I understand that complicated...

Hello 2015!!!  It’s me, Mary Lane.  2014 brought on a lot of great things: I started this blog, which has launched me into a world full of possibility.  I appeared on my favorite network television show “SCANDAL”.  I even saw my debut mention amongst all the mud slingi...

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 at first.  I mean why would I want to subscribe to a service that ran...

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 just an added bonus.  And I love walking around New York taking in the...

Let the record show that this message came in at 3:42pm on a Monday afternoon.

Come on, man... Don't you and your bulging pectorals have something better to be doing on a Monday afternoon at 3:42pm than asking me if I've ever had a tantric massage?  I guess not.  Bad f...

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 answer his "off the wall" question that I would be adding something of va...

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!
