You know, I’m trying not to spew these days, but things like this make it difficult:


Mary Raffaele thinks that Michael Vick may still be a bit of an asshole.

What doesn’t make me cranky? The fact that my faux arch-nemesis, that size 0 and can still drink you under the table, MISS MOTO went to Japan and brought me back a banana case. It looks something like this:

That’s right bitches. I’m gonna have the safest bananas in NYC.

So I thought I’d give you a book update, since it’s been a while since it’s been mentioned…

I had originally thought to work towards cutting my hours down at PF to make more time to write, since there always seems to be a time crunch. But the more I weighed out the options on that alternative (number one being how to live on less money), the more things sped up at work. Pat is just so hot right now that it’s opened up opportunities for everyone around her, and I’ve shifted gears a bit, and in a more lucrative direction. In the current economy, and in the face of a past record of hand to mouth existence, I’ve made the choice to focus more on what started as a job and now looks to be an actual career that I enjoy. Although Drew remains unconvinced that any real work is getting done:

DREW: Wow, did you cut your hair?

ME (pulling bangs off my head): No, I’m wearing fake bangs. See, they have little clips. Aren’t they great?

DREW: So this is what you did at work?

ME: Yeah! Verushka and Moto have them too. We’ve decided that this month it’s all about faux bangs.

DREW: Was this an official meeting in the office?

ME: Yes. Want to see my new yacht cougar stretch jumpsuit? We’re also planning a Charlie’s Angel night, bangs optional. And today we staged a fashion intervention because Ingrid was trying to order a dozen polo shirts from American Apparel. Blech. Can you imagine?

DREW: Really shaking the world up today, huh?

ME: Don’t hate, Drouche. Here, I’ll let you try the bangs.


I am also finding it tiring to look backwards. Maybe it’s because I’ve written about a lot of things already in blogs, although I believe there is still plenty that I’ve saved in the back of my brain. Or maybe its that I’m in a happier space now and I’ve burned off a lot of the damage from the past. This planetary shift that is happening is so much about moving forward that it just doesn’t seem the proper time to rehash the past.

But I still believe that I’ve got at least one good book in me, it’s just going to have to wait a bit longer.

In the meantime, my sister is planning a visit to New York at the end of next month so for those of you who miss her, we’ll be planning some sort of alcohol-based get-together. I’ll keep you posted on that.

And that’s really it, I’ve got a couple of blogs in the back of my brain but they’ll keep. I’ve got to go work out what shoes go best with a polyester bellbottom jumpsuit.

Oh, and a big PS. As for this little link to what I’m currently watching–file Eastbound and Down under MUST SEE. I’m talking to you, DANORIFFIC.
