Ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry eye!

My poor doggin' has come down with a case of cherry eye. It's not as cute as it sounds, but I'm trying to look on the bright side. Perhaps there'll be a tiny eye patch in the future.

Au revoir, dinner at Le Bernardin. Bonjour, eye surgery.

(my karaoke mainstay)

Thanks for all your warm wishes! Bella is healed sans surgery! All it took was some steroidal anti inflammatory/biotic eye drops!

Sad, but true.

Your love & adoration* is my sustenance. Maybe I should get out more. But I'd probably just wind up defiling nature like this poor sap.

*how presumptuous!

Have a seat

A good sofa, couch is so many things. A friend, a confidant, your most ardent supporter. It embraces you when you're downtrodden and depressed. It bounces with you when you're happy and at your best. It's a host, a womb, a sanctuary, a nest. Lay on it, sit on it, eat on it, fuck on it, sleep on it. Do what you will. 

It keeps your secrets tucked away between cushions. Historical accounts of your life archived in dust, crumbs, sloughed off bits of you. Teddy Ruxpin got lost in a green one with wicker arms. I lost my virginity behind a green leather one with recliner seats. 

What's your most treasured sofa saga?

I smoked in the girls room.
I shoved people into lockers.
I snuck out windows in the middle of the night.
I ditched class.
I kissed boys.
I more than kissed boys.
I talked shit.
I got hit (by large Puerto Rican girls).
I vandalized.
I dispensed sneers.
I pilfered a tie dyed bikini, various sundries.
I dabbled with pills, drugs.
I dyed my hair with koolaid, manic panic.
I shaved my head.
I raided dad's liquor cabinet.
I pierced my ears, navel with safety pins.
I kind of miss being bad.

Reader Request

Iggy Pop 1971 by Gerard Malanga

For the endlessly enchanting Amanda, who once said, "Srsly more censoring with armadillos."

My mother is a compulsive gambler. I recall being about three (or four, but definitely not yet five) years old on a family road trip through the desert. There were all these glittery signs and some were even animated. A waving cowboy sign seemed to beckon her from a mile away.

She lied and made my father pull over. She said that I had to use the bathroom, but I didn't. She led me through a dark, smoky room and took up at a black jack table. She leaned down and put her pointer finger to her mouth. I loved the smell of her breath.

"Shhh, be good, okay? Stay right here, I'll only be a minute."

As the car was running outside, I found myself under a black jack table staring at strangers legs. There was a dusty pair of snake skin cowboy boots, some thick tree trunks covered in nude pantyhose, and most exciting of all, a pair of red patent leather stilettos perched on rung of the stool.

I couldn't tell how long it had been, as children, like dogs, are not good at telling time. My trance was broken by the hand grasping for me signaling that time was up. I said goodbye to my new leg friends. We pranced back to the car where my father and grandparents waited. I reveled in this shared secret of ours and then suddenly, had to pee.

The Triumphant Return

I've been anxiously awaiting the return of Mad Men. The fourth season starts Sunday, July 25th at 10PM on AMC. I re-watched the first episode the other day and noticed:
  • Don was more randy/cocky (less cool/mysterious)
  • Joan was curvier (how is that even possible?!)
  • Peggy was kind of a slut (tried to hit on Don her first day! Also slept with Pete!)
  • Paul was unbearded and not yet a subversive
  • Salvatore was unbearded and far more flamboyant (aka single for almost the first season, then blammo, married!)
  • Betty sleeps on the wrong side of the bed.
  • The music was so cheesy (stand up bass lines and lots of jazzy symbols)
Thank goodness for character development. I can't wait to see what happens next!

ps. I hate it when Don has those Grapes of Wrath childhood flashbacks. I hope they leave those out this season. Ugh!
