Today I have decided that instead of moping about, and being whiny and saying “what am I going to do with my life?” I am just going to embrace this last week of 2004 and enjoy and wallow in the fact that there is nothing I have to do. So today I am reading magazines and books and listening to Cat Stevens and Iggy Pop and lounging around Hefner-like in pj’s and a silky robe. I say silky because it feels like silk, but it is not, it is some strange concoction of polyester (how can one material have so many different-textured incarnations?). Which reminds me of a guy I knew who used to always say “nice shirt, is it felt? (feeling the material) well it is now.”
Christmas was strange- involving wine, cheese, egg rolls, taquitos, deep-fried raviolis, cold cuts, champagne, spritz cookies, fudge, brownies, more wine, popcorn, soon to be ex-brother-in-law, soon to be step-father (do I really have to call him my stepdad? I am an adult, couldn’t he just be my mother’s husband? It is altogether too weird to fully comprehend at this point), vomiting in the bushes (thankfully that was not me), bulldogs puppies eating said vomit (I got the unfortunate task of attempting to clean them on the sly so as few people as possible would realize what happened, yeck! Sis, you owe me one, I’d say).Today is the sad anniversary of my father’s death, fourth anniversary, and I am attempting to do him proud by not crying today. So far so good. I am just trying to stay busy doing nutty things that will keep me distracted. I bought some watercolors and a game of Yahtzee.

Holy schnikes, I almost forgot Minka's animated Christmas greeting!

A blatant attempt to generate revenue

"I somehow some way keep coming up with funky ass shit like every single day" Snoop D O Double-Gizzle. So I quoted cuz I got my mind on my money and my money on my mind. Who will employ the likes of my paranoid moody self?

In the interim, y'all could purchase one of the following fine products:

Pups n' Kitties on mugs and such

If you like Siamese cats, you will love a shirt or something with Minka on it, wontcha?

If you like Chinese Crested dogs (or just odd looking dogs in general) check out Marmalade...and you thought Mr Winkle cornered the market on having ones tongue constantly hanging out the side of ones mouth. Meet Miss Maramalade: in your face, Winkle!

or, also, if you lil book (novella more than novel I suppose...)

sorry, I am just so depressed cuz it is Christmas....rats. I am a whiny little beotch all the time lately. I am trying to curb that shit, but it is hard.

Remember what we are thankful for, or what I am thankful for anyway:
the girls, my mama and sisters and bros in law and nieces and nephews and Kris and Lisa K. and Leta..... and books to read, read "the Lovely Bones"-I was afraid that would be so depressing but it is actually so wonderful. And the BBC, I love 'em... first of all Python of course, but oh my gosh I just discovered "Coupling"--ohh what a great show.... plus Ab Fab and French and Saunders and you know I will always love "Are You Being Served?" I am so dorky......And thanks to whoever had the ancient tape of the Star Wars Holiday Special, and sold some on Ebay, a true comedy classic, that. Here is a pic from the Gio's Christmas party:
oh yeah, and Courtney Love is still such my girl and I hope she does bounce back, I know she will.... buy America's Sweetheart ... it is terrific and everyone dumps on her and ignored that album. For the love of God, huh? I mean lots of people bought that stupid faux-lesbian Catholic schoolgirl group accounting for taste I guess, especially mine, heh.

Egad, it's Christmas. Eck. This is an emotional time anyway, because Dad died just after Christmas and his birthday was at the beginning of December. And now it is twice as sad because this will be the 1st Christmas without my brother-in-law since I was about 5. my middle sis and I were saying that divorce is almost like if the person who is not blood related to you died, and it's true. So overall it is a melancholy and blue, blue blue blue Christmas. In any case, Minka would like to wish everyone a Meowy Christmas.
blargh! this is not posting that pic why why why and mink is on my knee, purring about her xmas debut...

ah yesssss finally! oh, that lil dude looks like a beanie baby Jesus, but actually it is Qui Gon Jinn (Ginn or Jinn? not even sure) which Marcus gave me cuz I'm a Star Wars geek....not too much though I guess cuz I can't spell the name...... anyway a lil silliness is good to chase away the rest of the shit that life brings...

oh here is another pic cuz I can never get enough of sistas. I wasn't born yet, not until about 7 years later....

that is too classic. I love that. Oh, I am going to post that on Craigslist hehehe cuz more peeps will see it there. See, all it takes to pull my dumb ass out of a deep blue funk is some funny pictures and also some wine.
