Just a Thought

The phone rang and rang, louder than I ever recall hearing it. It sounded like a cathedral bell was right next to my head with a little hunchback swinging and yelling. My head was about the split open, and it wouldn’t stop. I took out my revolver, gave the phone one warning, and then shot it.

The bang hurt even worse. I’m a fucking retard.

May or May Not

Two Ladies
Sometimes I sing from Cabaret to my kittens. That may or may not be a bit creepy.

Just a Thought

The old company Cunard has been bought out by Carnival, but they still slap the “Cunard” brand on everything because Cunard has a history of classiness and tuxedos whereas Carnival has a history of Kathie Lee Gifford.

Fucking Pitch

No Fucks Were Given.
The Boy has started practicing his voice pitch.
He is doing more acting and more stage work and more practice.
Today he read me an article about how not to give a fuck.
Basically there was a lot of the word fuck spewed on to a computer recording.

Just a Thought

I wondered, just as I had wondered a thousand times during staff meetings at the Times, how long members of the press – not to mention politicians and the public – would be content to equate deliberate ignorance of evil with its nonexistence.

Dance of the Hours

Dancing
Netflix has Fantasia streaming.

When I was pregnant Fantasia was in the cheap theaters. I probably saw it ten different times. I love the movie, and it made me smile and filled me with color and music.

One of the first times I went to see the movie with my son’s father I found myself relating to the hippo in the yellow tutu. I felt round and he was whip thin and I always thought of as the lovestruck crocodile. I was amused and delighted by the comparison. For every animal in the dance he would give me a weird animal fact to make me giggle. Every time I see Fantasia I have fond memories of the dancing.

In addition to the fond memories there is the fact that my son’s father had no A/C and it was the hottest summer known to all of humanity and rather than catch fire I could go to a movie and have A/C. I’m going to stream the movie and cuddle cuddle cuddle under my blanky.

“I fell asleep.”

I nodded, telling myself not to ask. I’d only get more confused. Ghouls sleep? You learn something new every fucking day, I guess.

Cloud Palette

Sky Alive
When in doubt, I look into the sky and the clouds, the sky is never exactly the same two days in a row. Even if the clouds and the sky have the same colors, but the formations, the shapes, all of it will be different, every day. That makes me feel amazing. It wipes the palette clean and I can stare at the sky and feel clean and good.

Ritual

Crazy Ass Dog
Today has been a lesson in complacency.
Don’t become complacent.
Don’t forget that every day needs to be a ritual.
Lesson, lesson, lesson.

Needless to say this day can suck it.
