Apparently I’m dying. The rumor mill of mother’s (not mine this time) got to work and like a children’s game of telephone (Chinese whispers) my kidney cancer and drastic diet change morphed. By the time my ex-mother-in-law called her son … Continue reading
So my grand idea of a swimsuit calendar made up of cancer patients of all kinds and their scars led me to discover the work of David Jay and the Scar Project. Slogan: Breast cancer is not a pink ribbon. … Continue reading

Pain is Beauty. Beauty is Pain. That’s how the saying goes. I strapped on the new pair of black alligator pumps and headed to the office today. It’s my newest version of Beauty is pain AKA how to be an … Continue reading
Albert Camus wrote “in the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.’ I believe he was speaking of an emotional space, an essence. I am fighting my way through winter. This particular frost … Continue reading
I’ve said it time and again. I love creativity, a bonafide junkie. And to actually meet an artist I’ve admired and been following for a while is beyond measure. Today, DT ² accompanied me to meet Brooke Hagel at a … Continue reading
During college I went to see the movie with a new lover. We started the movie nestled up against one another. But the end we were leaning on the opposite arm rests away from one another. We broke up that day after (really technically watching the movie). I think we both realized we did not have that kind of passion for one another and weren’t likely to develop it.
On another note I have shopping to do- books to order, shoes to buy. NO, I have plenty of chocolate on hand. Though, I’m afraid I cheated with the handy man, Joe. He came by the office and I couldn’t say no. I love blue collar men especially when they are also a little crunchy and earth conscious. Beside he plays the guitar. I mean come on.
Anyway, I don’t want to spend more money. I have done enough damage lately and the medical bills are beginning to trickle in again. I am still paying rent and a mortgage and bills for two homes. But I have a black jumpsuit these shoes would be spectacular with. Thankfully they are out of my size. I’ve been saved!
Oh, Man……..these ones are still available in my size. Someone needs to talk me out of them. Remind me that high heels and I don’t mix well. That I will suffer greatly.
My other problem is when artists I adore and follow create art, books, clothing, jewelry, music …….. it must come home with me, join my collection. So Tyler Knott Gregerson your book and Shannon Ables extraordinary guide to The Simply Luxurious Life, will both be mine! Okay, will soon be mine, once they actually ship.
P.S. if you want to learn more about Shannon check out her Tuesday Talent interview.
I suppose that would be more then enough damage to do. Especially since once I am in my new apartment I have to actually buy some new furniture. I have managed to get paired down to one room- a bed, desk, bookshelves and a chair. I suspect my one bedroom apartment may need a few more pieces. Especially if anyone ever comes over to visit. It is one thing if I eat in bed but……
I have some deep thinking to do this weekend. My Punk Rock Pornstar Activist friend tasked me with the following:
“here. amuse your mind with this when you need a mental break from reality:first answer this ethics question: if humanity and the planet are on a collision course with extinction, as most of us realize… which is the lesser or two evils: to allow both to die or to artificially reduce the planets population back to say 1 billion. if you chose the second choice, how would you engineer that keeping in mind all the problematic logistics as well as incredible opportunities this would offer you in creating a future society of your choosing”
It’s time for the weekend. Hope you all have a fabulous one. Especially those crazy souls braving Burning Man! Old Man, I’m talking to you. Hope you enjoy the Burn. You too MS, but you’d better bring your little brother home in one piece or there will be hell to pay with the woman in your life.
Oh, and DT² stop fretting. I assure you Paris is still at the top of my travel to-do along with Nashville. And we will have the girls week in Palm Springs. Feel free to join me to Singapore and Oz as well. You know you’re welcome.
Till next week.

The Weekend Reading List
So for this week’s reading list I am simply going to link you to few websites that have made me laugh lately. Some till I nearly peeped my pants. There is nothing I find sexier than a sharp razor wit. Honestly, it is a turn on. So feast yourselves my friends. They won’t disappoint. Oh, and let me know if I need to add someone. Recommendations welcomed.
- The Writer’s Village (AKA Randy Mazie)
- Rubber Shoes In Hell
- Stop Me If I Told You This……
- Helena Hann-Basquiat (AKA the Dilettante) -If you read my blog you should be familiar with Helena. If not shame on you. She is the one who introduced me to the two blogs above hers.
I just discovered these two- their harmonies are to die for. Most of you know my theory about the perfect match and harmonizing. And my love for Country music - well let’s just say “it is a love without end. Amen.”
I was recently talking to DT² who insisted that the next time I kiss a man she requires photographic proof. I understand. It would be like spotting an albino rhino in Antarctica. Or is that a spotted penguin in the … Continue reading
