Ah, to be young again….

October 27, 2009

1491755_f520I don’t know if it’s sexier, but it did feel great getting carded yesterday buying beer for chili. The thrill of being mistaken for pre-21 lost a little of its luster when questioning cashier took 10 minutes to put on his coke-bottle glasses to actually check my ID,  used a walker to pony up to the register, and had to put his teeth back in to tell me my bill.

Canine Flu

October 26, 2009

IMG_0464Well this pretty much sums up the view of my weekend.  Except for the two classes I taught on Saturday I pretty much have been in my bathtub trying to get warm. Even though, remarkably, the thermometer reads I am QUITE toasty??!!?!?!

Swine flu you will not have me! I do not eat swine, I do not socialize with swine (by choice), and I’m certainly not going to be infected with your silly cliche’d virus. I’ve decided instead that this is the canine flu. If I were to get a virus I would much rather it be of the pooch variety, so that is the way it will be (arms crossed.)

Grand illusions of tag sales, planting succulents, reading Tolstoy, adopting a Korean orphan (with special needs of course,) and re-picketing the front fence were dashed friday afternoon when my fever spiked so high I started conversing with my nightstand.

Six shots of Nyquil, 4 doses of Comtrex, 100,000 Oscillococcinum pellets, and a partridge in a pear tree later, and I was not only still sick, but I was crazy high from all the Nyquil.

Sunday night I felt I owed HH. He had scrapped all of our weekend hijinks in exchange for taking care of Althea Flynt. I rarely cook for my beloved. It’s not that I don’t love to cook for him, but it’s so much easier to nap instead.

Two different stir fry’s with the intent to arm us both with the phytonutrients necessary to stave off any other virus’ and or bacterium that try to come knock us down. Watch out muthafucka’s we’ve eaten our veggies!!! GRRRRRRR!!!!

Amelia

The movie Amelia opens today. I don’t want to see it. I kinda already know the ending. Sorta like when everyone ran out to see Titanic???? Didn’t they already know the punchline? But I must say I am slightly obsessed with Miss Earhart. Why you ask? Why do my pupils dilate a tad darker when I chance an image or story of this celestial siren? Is it because of  the trails she blazed in our sky? Is it for her plucky, independent streak that shattered glass ceilings for us girls? Do I love her because she defied society’s gender rules, and still maintained her feminine allure? ……………No. I just really like her clothes. She dressed totally rad and badass, but still managed to look elegant and chic. Look how effing cool she is:

If Miss Amelia were with us today she would rock Jean Paul Gautier’s Hermes, Ready to Wear Fall, 2009 collection. For once, I don’t detect much circus or mania in this Gautier batch; just beautiful, polished, 1930s inspired designs.
