Will you still need me, will you still read me when I’m 54

In case you haven't seen it in your local paper yet, it's my birthday. By the way, this weekend a neighbor was over, and she saw my Pop Tart on the wall. "Miss June. Is that a Pop Tart?" I assured her that it was. "You paid money for a POP TART?" Well, actually, it … Continue reading Will you still need me, will you still read me when I’m 54

Last day of 53 and June is oddly positive

I'm having this weird George Bailey gratitude for everything in my life despite the fact that things aren't going that great, which of course is also how it went for George Bailey. "I'm going to jail. Isn't it wonderful?" If you never saw It's a Wonderful Life I guess you have no idea what I'm … Continue reading Last day of 53 and June is oddly positive

Maybe everyone will walk in at once, like in a sitcom

Today is a giant day over at the Gardens' house o'pets: When I walked into the kitten room this morning, no one had gone anywhere but in their litter box! Remember when I used to have sex and stuff? This Saturday I have to take them in for their boosters, and I sort of thought … Continue reading Maybe everyone will walk in at once, like in a sitcom

The one where June goes to the DMV, the dentist and the post office all in one day.

Yesterday was berserk. I had an early dentist appointment, just for my cleaning, and my poor hygienist came out with no hair. I'd had to scream over there with absolutely wet hair, and was planning to apologize for that, but instead I kept my mouth fucking shut. As my hair dried against the back of … Continue reading The one where June goes to the DMV, the dentist and the post office all in one day.

Hello from the other side

I find weekends depressing lately, and I find holidays depressing-er. I'm like Lone Wolf Woman, of the Elderly Lone Wolves, and I'm not sure when this happened but I believe it was somewhere between divorce and failed follow-up relationship. Anyway, I'm glad this long 100 Years of Solitude just-me sans-friends weekend is coming to a … Continue reading Hello from the other side

The one where there’s too much emphasis on Billy Joel

Someone once pointed out to me that most Billy Joel songs are just Billy Joel complaining about someone, and now when I listen to his songs I'm all, gol' dangit. It's true. Dag nabbit. Okay, I'm done not swearing. Anyway, Billy Joel. Everyone works too hard, or doesn't fulfill his or her potential, or is … Continue reading The one where there’s too much emphasis on Billy Joel

June gets a gift from Things Remembered

When I was in high school, I fell desperately in love for the first time. The person I loved was not remotely named Giovanni Leftwich, but years ago I put him in a random name generator to blog about him, and have called him that here ever since because it's an excellent, excellent name. GL … Continue reading June gets a gift from Things Remembered

Weird stuff from yesterday (or, “Linenette”)

Cardinal and I went to a bunch of secondhand stores yesterday. I totally want these. I love old religious images, for some reason. Plus, Jesus is rocking the Curly God Method. $65 apiece, tho. Who has that kinda scratch? Cardinal playing the glass eagle Elvis guitar. As you do. Yep. I posted this one on … Continue reading Weird stuff from yesterday (or, “Linenette”)

I’m taking a drive with my boyfriend

Coincidentally, my high school boyfriend is also visiting my hometown right now. And by "coincidentally," I mean he wrote me months ago and said, "You should come to Saginaw the week of June 17th. I'll be there." So last night Cardinal, my high school swain, came over and got me. He wanted to catch up … Continue reading I’m taking a drive with my boyfriend

An AnnNanandAmy and a June walk into a bar

Last night, I got together with an old friend. Greg introduced us circa 1989-ish. Greg had been my friend for a few years before that fateful introduction. I had worked for him for a while as a freelance copywriter, and then once we stopped working together he even asked me out. He wrote me a … Continue reading An AnnNanandAmy and a June walk into a bar
