Stick With Your Day Job

Stick With Your Day Job

I spent the day writing notes on a script written by a friend who used to be an executive. The company he worked for folded and he’s spending his out-of-work time interviewing for jobs with fifty other applicants and writing a screenplay “that he’s been thinking about since college.” He asked me to read his […]

If I’m Gloating, It’s Probably Not Nice

If I’m Gloating, It’s Probably Not Nice

Mr. Foxypants just announced that he will be taking the entire month of October off from work… wait for it…. to go through the garage and all his earthy possessions and downsize! And I didn’t even have to be a nagging shrew to get him to this decision. Since we moved into Dinky Manor in […]

Driving

Driving

Today I drove my psychic friend to a meeting she had to attend. As a native New Yorker, she’s never learned how to drive, even though she’s lived in LA for 20 years. She calls me from time to time to ask me if I can drive her to various events, like the county fair, […]

I hated the yarn. It […]

My New (Insane) Bastille Day Resolution

My New (Insane) Bastille Day Resolution

Today I wrote several long posts to The Compact list about my insanity. I’ve written about my OCD nuttiness before, so it’s not like that’s anything new, or a secret revealed. It began with me announcing my plan on downsizing my belongings by 90% by the end of the year (as compared to what they […]

A Dog Day (Rescheduled) Afternoon

A Dog Day (Rescheduled) Afternoon

Today Rose called me to tell me that she has to reschedule her dog’s charity garage sale. She’s going out of town for her anniversary. This change of plans was not surprising to me. Most of my friends are that special evil blend of busy and flakey. You can’t really ever get super mad at […]

May 19th ** Sue

May 19th ** Sue

Today I agreed to help Sue, a secondary character in my best friend‘s documentary about hillbilly culture, knit a baby blanket for her three month old daughter. I told my friend that if Sue knit up the squares for the blanket, that I would assemble/finish the blanket for her. Did I mention that finishing is […]
