2003-07-21

2003-07-21 - 9:15 p.m.

As promised. My kitty clearly was not in the mood to be held. Her expression says to me, "Mom, stop being such a bitch!" I'm sure she wreaked revenge by rolling on my favorite skirt or knocking over a glass while I was at work.

2003-07-21 - 9:30 a.m.

I don't know who sent me the email requesting a shot of "bangs and eyes", but the rest of the mail was so funny that s/he deserves to be rewarded. But bangs? Do you not realize that women haven't really had bangs since 1990? I have hair that falls in my face, but please, call them something else. And maybe using a word that I can't turn into something dirty (heehee, he said "bangs") would also be a good idea.

Quick tangent: Last week I dreamt that I was drunk and making out with some mullet head. Woke up shrieking "Noooooo! Not the mullet!" Interpretations, anybody?

Anyway, strange but entertaining person, watch for the shot later today.

I may be reviewing blogs for Ms. Lovejoy's Reviews soon. This sounds like the task from heaven. If there's one thing I love, it's digging into new blogs. Sure, there'll be some that make you want to scrub your OS clean because they're so disturbing, but then there are people like Jessica Lovejoy herself who are so entertaining and unusual that they're worth every second. How many writers do you know who can discuss their "f*ck-life" (as she terms it) and the Great Schism?

Btw, JL's sex-related posts are to mine as Screw Magazine is to Playboy, so be aware. And no, I'm not giving y'all links to Screw - please, most of my readers probably know it by heart. J certainly did. Porn doesn't bug me in the slightest, but, hey, I'm not Googling for that on an office IP address!

Okay, got a little off-track there. Hello, new track. No smutty stops on your route!

Except that now I have nothing to say. Aw. More smut later.
