Played with Kaylee. Sun came out, and I walked on my feet and heard with my ears. I ate the bits, the bits stayed down, and I work. I function like I'm a girl. I hate it because I know it'll go away. The sun goes dark and chaos has come again. Bits. Fluids. What am I?!

"I'm useless alone." // "We're all useless alone. It's a good thing you're not alone."

It's the attitude behind it that kills me, Cindy. You must have matching luggage, otherwise you're two steps away from being white trash!

Because books.

Jazz makes you look cool and gets you laid

That's just ... wrong. The wrong reason to listen to jazz, at least.

I dodn't realize readership of Marie Claire required such a high minimum income threshold/sugar daddy. For geez.


I mean, really. I'm supposed to spend "serious bank" and fly to Paris to get my hair done? Once?!

Shit's all sorts of different now.

Now, being the anal retentive that I am, I have matching luggage.


Gucci my ass.

The feeling you get when your brain finally lets your heart get in its pants.


What? It's early, and you all have made me hungry.

I'm working the day after, too, but I'm hoping we go out to eat, because I don't want the drama of cooking or going to someone's house and all that.

It seems so much about image, so little about what makes a person happy. But that's not what they're selling, is it? But I did fly to Prague for a haircut...

OK, I was *in* Prague and needed a haircut. Badly.

Greece's financial crisis threatens to take down all of Western civilization - a civilization they themselves founded. A rather tragic irony - which is something they also invented. - Jon Stewart

Rutabaga, mashed potatoes but no gravy, stuffing that never saw the guy of a bird... Those are my personal tastes of Thanksgiving. The rest can vary wildly and I won't mind.

You'd be all set at my house as long as we made some of the outside stuffing sans celery.

I’d be lying if I didn’t say that I miss them all tonight…

I do not have matching luggage. I have one vintage suitcase that I adore. (Also, one of Lee's carry-on suitcases.)

Also, I want the Ralph Lauren tuxedo. He knows how to cut for my shape.

"I'm useless alone." // "We're all useless alone. It's a good thing you're not alone."

If you want matching luggage, great! Hell, if you want an Yves St. Laurent tux, great! But being told I must have those things in the next ten years makes me...contrary.

vanguard of the socialist Hollywood liberal homosexualist agenda

I'm going to refrain from going off on the Marie Claire article, because it'll be good for my blood pressure, and a thing you don't want by 40 is a heart attack.

It's things like this that remind me that the media sometimes has no idea what "average American life" is like.
