Sun-hatched under a rock on Vancouver Island, Miranda Nelson never went to kindergarten; ergo she missed out on learning important life lessons like how to share.
Thrust ass backwards into a journalism career at age 20, Nelson writes about scintillating topics including East Van's garbage and graffiti situation, transit, politics, feminism, inequality, Rob Ford, marijuana, and what can only be charitably described as "the absurd".
Nelson spends her non-journalism-related time writing Hugh Laurie fan fiction, yelling at thoughtless people on public transit, leaving parties without saying farewell, attempting to bioengineer money trees, and contemplating where unicorns come from. (Like, did a narwhal have sex with a horse? What gives?) She's also fond of recycling pop culture tropes into her writing and passing them off as new and original jokes.
