Shithouse rat

I'm a bipolar writer in the Naked City. I'm not playing with a full deck. I don't have all my dots on the dice. My cheese is sliding off my cracker. I don't have both oars in the water. I'm a bubble off plum. In other words, I'm crazier than a shithouse rat. These are my stories. Comments--short or long, nasty or nice--always welcome!

The untamed

BG's version bares only a passing resemblance to the original. To me, it is BG's version of Picasso's Demoiselles d'Avignon>--with varying degress of abstraction and representation intertwined. BG says it is a family portrait of sorts--with him in the middle and his siblings at his side.

Cool. Could be an album cover (if they still made albums).
