This brings back memories. After my divorce, I rented a shitty little house in a downwardly-mobile small town and the landlord was a Republican muckety-muck. The heating bills were, quite literally, through the roof (there was a giant hole in the eaves he never bothered to fix, although I see by the picture he finally […]

Years ago, I got knocked down, punched and kicked in the ribs in a mosh pit at an X show. Apparently this is how some people treat women who dare to go to live shows: Most women who frequently attend live shows will tell you that they have been harassed, groped or assaulted as they […]

Giving in to the temptation

On Monday night, it was so hot, I couldn’t sleep. I had a box fan blowing the hot air out of the room but it wasn’t enough. Finally, I got up and cracked the window — it was in the low 60s, but that meant I woke up with swollen eyes as big as baseballs […]

Dream

I was in NYC with my friend N., who was visiting. She wanted to check out a specific salon, but I spotted an old music store with some old ukuleles I wanted to check out. We agreed to meet later. As I worked my way around the store, I came upon a man, mid-forties or […]

Tales from the Hellmouth

Going Squirrelly Apr 16th, 2004 at 10:33 am by Susan You want to know how I feel about that fucking squirrel, the one that hurls itself at my screen, craps on my deck table and eats my plants? The same way Ahab felt about the whale. I’m a nice person. Really, I am. Except for […]

Blood test

I have to get a blood test today for my thyroid meds or they won’t refill my prescription (I don’t know why, I’m doing fine), so I went over to the local ambulatory center (which was a hospital until right after I moved here). I sit and wait my turn for about a half-hour. One […]

One of the weird ADD symptoms I have is constant tightness in my upper back, always. It’s always been that way. I can get a therapeutic massage and on the way home, it’s right back to the status quo. The only time that stopped it was when I used to be on Ritalin (which I […]

Vacation fund update

Several of you made donations — which are much appreciated. The total is not enough to go anywhere just yet. (We’re not talking about a trip to Paris, just a quiet week at the beach.) So anything you can donate to help me unwind with a week of peace and quiet near some water would […]

Hah

I was watching “Scandal” on my teevee last night, and there’s this scene where superwoman Olivia Pope is confronting the police captain who’s pulled in her client without arresting him or reading him his Miranda rights. She gives this rat-a-tat speech to the captain, along the lines of “my client is not standing here right […]
