When people ask me "what are you up to" or "what's going on in your life" I always reply "nothing" or "I can't think of anything exciting." Well, I decided to make the change and recognize I do have interesting tidbits to share.
Sunday I went to a talk given by Jay McCarroll. He was the winner of season 1 "Project Runway". He was funny, quirky, incredibly honest and therefore somewhat self-destructive. I have been pondering the oddness of the crowd. He had groupies. People were sycophantically laughing at everything he said. I was laughing also, but not with the same manic fervor. One woman asked him if he had a retirement fund and health insurance. Another annoying woman asked to take pictures of all his stuff to put on Instagram.
My weird claim to fame is now I have met two "Project Runway" winners. I met Christian Ciriano at a breast cancer function. He was a teeny, tiny turd of a human being.
Thing 2 is covered with little round bruises. Turns out he and his friend were shooting each other with the air-soft rifles. I am going to add this was not done on my watch.
Thing 3 regaled me with his latest song entitled "The Golden Sausage." It was not racy, but I can't get an image of Freddie Mercury out of my head.
My 50 state book challenge is complete, except for half of New Mexico. I read fiction, non-fiction, short stories, poems, classics and trash. I had more good reads than bad reads, Missouri stands out as particularly lame. The hardest state to find a book about was South Dakota. I really tried to have no re-reads, but had three. Alaska and Alabama were on purpose and Montana was accidental. Next year will be challenge free.
Juno and Minnow have brought me a present every day this week. Minnow was responsible for mouse parts all over the back patio I am pretty sure. Juno doesn't seem to be into dismemberment. I appreciate the decreased rodent population and their love, but gross!
