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!

BETTER than the original?!?

Yeah, unbelieveable is right!

That's a great picture. Was just thinking that I don't remember the last time I have had real butter

Olive oil seems to be paramount in my life, and restaurants, unless they serve chopped olives. The restaurant I ate at the other night serves the later, and the big sign saying "we don't use transfats" made us laugh as that restaurant probably never used them

Regarding your new and improved post over at BlogCritics, Elvira, I have but one comment:

"Arch Conservative:"

WRONG on New York.
WRONG on New Jersey.
WRONG for America.

I left a copy there, too.

New York seems to be becoming more like California did long ago, namely: We don't do transfats, we don't do cigs, etc.

It depends on the level of restaurant one frequents. I love olive oil, and it's actually healthy for you. But the places BG goes are a different story. He grew up on peanut butter and hot dogs, and you know what they say about how your childhood diet usually sticks with you to some extent (do they say that?).

When I'm in the city I usually go for sushi. No trace of it in BG's area, so I have to grab it while I can.

Thanks, but the comment as it stands here looks like you hated my piece (lol).

Arch Conservative is a fixture over at BC. There are some people who just comment and don't post pieces, but comments are considered a good thing even if they get kinda intense. You just can't do any "personal attacks," but that still leaves a lot of leeway for some pretty major verbal fisticuffs. To me, it's just good, clean old American fun.

Elvira, if that's true about the diet, I'd be eating sandwiches on white bread and eating canned string beans. I shudder to think. I'm heading over for the new and improved.

a woman, or the feminine in men and women, seeks to share deep awareness of the world
in a sacralized communion. the presence of soft candle light, wild flowers, and the
rituals of dressing for the occasion are simply metaphors acknowledged and “lived out”
in honor of the moment. in honor of life. in honor of shared awareness of the infinite
in a momen.
