Have you ever come across one of your own eyelashes in your mouth?? Quite an unpleasant sensation, I assure you. Trust me on this one.

On an entirely separate note, I must tell you that I like Dee’s place very much. This has nothing at all to do with the fact that she gushed over my place in a quite lovely, laconic way a few weeks ago. I just keep forgetting to throw her return props. I would invite her for a guest appearance, but she is far more prolific than I and I could hardly stand to have my bit of thunder muffled. Forgive me, Dee-love?

She is very forthcoming with the fact that she is shitty about returning e-mail….I think that mine may have been in her cyber back pocket and got washed. C’est la vie, c’est la guerre, say let’s have another beer!

“Dis is my house an’ I set da stannards aroun’ he-yuh.”–Archie Bunker

There’s been an ‘All in the Family’ marathon playing whilst I have been working today. That show KILLS me! What kills me even more than the show is the thought that for a period in the late seventies (and if memory serves correctly, the early, early eighties) a white xenophobic misogynist ran around using words like ‘fag’ and ‘nigger’ in a national forum and the ratings SOARED. I am amazed that they even let it back on television in this age of deplorable maxi political correctness.

Before youse start, let me tell you that YES, I get the whole Edward Albee-like slant on the deal, but I love Archie’s overblown in-your-faceness anyhoo. I love the fact that he calls his son-in-law ‘meathead’ to his face several times on a daily basis. I LOVE ‘ALL IN THE FAMILY’ AND I AM NOT AFRAID TO ADMIT IT. Ah youse?

AND THAT JEAN STAPLETON WAS A SHEER COMEDIC GENIUS. Bless you Jean, for wearing those uglyass aprons all those years.

“You look cute right now.” –what my eldest son said to me this afternoon.

Now, normally I find the word ‘cute’ quite repulsive, ESPECIALLY when it is used in relation to me. But this time, oh HELL, it made me blushy and gooey.

Only because he genuinely meant it.

Dude, I am soooo lucky.

“Bend over, robot.”

The quote of the day, courtesy of the movie Nowhere, which I finally got to see in its’ entirety.

I highly recommend it if you dig flicks that contain lots of drugs, sex, loosely-thrown-off glib one-liners, alien abductions and plastic poseurs who are WAY.

And oooh, that ‘Dark’….tasty, tasty, TASTY.

 

You felt you must be wise

‘Cause you could find yourself

Among a sea of smiling faces

It’s a way I’ve never felt

Yeah, it kinda flies right into my face

And out the other side

Oh, the ugly truth leaves nothing to decide

The ugly truth makes every one of us a liar

Ugly

If you can dig a big enough hole

To bury all your youth

No you still won’t be prepared for the ugly truth

No you’ll never be prepared for the ugly truth

You simply cannot hide from the ugly truth

Ugly

// Matthew Sweet, “The Ugly Truth

Now, that is what I call pretty.
