Taluprah

"Does Oprah have to have her $%#@& picture on every $%#&% cover of her magazine?" Marvin asked me.

"Yes," I said. I had just spent the entire day with Marvin, and had just sat down to read a book. Was totally over Marvin.

"I don't know why she thinks we all want to look at her every month," he said.

Silence as I turned a page.

"I'd read a magazine with Tallulah's picture on it every month," he pressed on, kissing the dog, who was similarly over him.

That was about an hour ago, and he was supposed to be in the other room working on lesson plans for his class. Instead, he just paraded into the room with this:

Talluprah

Okay, now I feel we must have an issue of Taluprah every month on this blog. What I know for sure, by Tallulah Blueberry Gardens. Talu's favorite things. Talu's books I like to chew club. The possibilities are endless.

Taluprah. Dying.

P.S. Don't forget not to chew your book for Sunday night's book club. We meet here at 7 p.m. Eastern time.

  1. June! It’s late and you used an apostrophe to indicate plural! (…”book’s I like to chew”) Quick! Wake up and repair it!!
    Sending you wake-up-vibes from the west coast, where it’s only 9:51 pm. UP!! June!! UP!!

    This was worth the wait. Plus, also, too timely for me since I was just at the bookstore sitting by someone perusing the new unauthorized bio of OPRAH by Kitty Kelly. Me? I prefer Taluprah.

  5. Marvin receives an A+ for this project.
    Talu reports every month would be very entertaining.

  6. I went to bed last night with a heavy heart and a tear in my eye. No June. All day. I had one of the longest days of my life yesterday and when I came in here to check on June and found no post, I nearly sobbed.
    BUT THEN… this morning. Oh this morning. Taluprah. So funny. I would like to subscribe. Marvin! He cracked me up this morning. Doesn’t Oprah usually have a two page layout titled “Breathing Space” or something similar. Usually it’s a picture of some beautiful lake or woods or something. Taluprah needs something like that. Peeing Space. Chewing Space. Running Space for when she takes a tear through the neighborhood. What about Taluprah’s AHA! Moment???

  7. Oh, MAN! Sadie and Koty would LOVE to subscribe to Taluprah! Who would the advice columnists be? Cesar Milan and and the “It’s me or the dog” lady? Would Snowflake be a contributing editor?
    Marvin really does get an A+ for this one!

  9. I’m not sure if I like the fat Taluprah or the thin one. Who is Taluprah’s BFF? Does she have a boyfriend, that is sometimes invisible? and hangers-on, Old Yeller, Rin Tin Tin, Lassie, Marley….If Tom Cruise wants to jump on her sofa will she tell him to “get off the sofa”, bad man.

  10. Oh that is too cute. I’d definitely read it. Be careful about making Talu too famous though! Next thing you know she’s going to be demanding bottled water at exactly 52.3 degrees and showing her panties off to the paparazzi!

  11. Oh I would totally subscribe to T mag! You’ll be starting a brand, baby, starting a brand! Ok…that is only funny to me cos here in South Africa we have an ad on tv that says “I’m starting a band, baby, starting a band” and that made me think of Marvin. Go team Marvin!
