I went in to add a new shipping address for a Christmas purchase on Etsy, and I still have amyth's in there from the year I was her secret santa.
A place where we can talk about ita, miss ita, and share information about memorials. The hugging started over here in Natter.
and I still have amyth's in there from the year I was her secret santa.
I was Ouise's Secret Santa one year. I sent her the Gorey Dracula paper stage set.
The WFMU lunchbox I got from Tom as my Secret Santa is prominently displayed at the new house.
The Judy Garland box I got from Laura one year is on temporary loan to a friend who was going through a tough stretch and is a huge Judy fan.
I sent amyth Hedwig earrings from her Etsy wishlist and a little compact from the New Orleans art museum.
I had just met a guy who did animal portraits at a benefit and for Secret Santa I reached out and had him do a sketch of Amyth’s Lulu, who had passed recently. I think that was my favorite Santa.
She LOVED that portrait, Brenda. Well done!!
I always remember ita's birthday because she shares it with my sister. Not the only day of the year when I think of her, but a day I always think of her. Just a couple days ago I saw a young man resting in front of a Jamaican grocery drinking a Ting, and I smiled.
The NYTimes crossword puzzle has "Ankh-carrying goddess" as a clue today, which of course made me think of ita.
I saw the photos of Harvey Guillen at the Met Gala and, at first, thought he was wearing pink gingham. I don't think he was, but he'd be a worthy addition to the Pink Gingham Junta, wouldn't he.
It wasn't pink gingham, but he did look spectacular at the Met Gala, and I think he'd be darling in pink gingham.
And we know he can do a spectacular fight scene.
