WWKLD?

So, what did y'all all do this weekend? I vacillated between crushing depression and watching Khloe and Lamar. Can anyone tell me why I am remotely interested in what happens to Khloe Kardashian? And yet there I am. Also? Lamar seems like a normal person. Why does he like Khloe? Also also? Why am I asking myself these questions as though they matter?

Do you ever get the feeling, on these holiday weekends, that everyone else is whooping it up and you are the only one weeping and watching Khloe and Lamar on E? A friend of mine emailed and said, "Ima call you later, but you'll probably be out."

"Where the hell would I be?" I asked her.

"I don't know. Wherever people without kids go on Saturday nights."

See. Everyone thinks everyone else is having fun, and really the only people having fun are Khloe and Lamar.

I need to stop thinking about those two.

In other news, I bought this:

Tools
It's a whole girly tool kit. Look at that determined, newly divorced woman. She is putting up a hanger for her ex's testicles. She hasn't washed her hair in a week. I feel ya, sister.

Also, has Susan G. Komen taken over the whole damn world? I just realized I bought Susan G. Komen tools. It's like Susan G. Komen has trademarked the color pink.

I used my new tools to put up my $5 eBay photos in the hallway.

Dogs I had that same tight-lipped, "IMA DO IT!" expression as I put up my dog paint-by-numbers…

Fleurs and my magnolias. If anyone tells me I hung them crooked I will drive to your house and shoot drill bits up your nose holes with my Susan G. Komen drill. I DON'T CARE. I'm doing the best I can, okay?

It's kind of redundant of me to put up paintings of dogs, isn't it? I mean, why don't I just put up paintings of big hair or sad middle-aged women? Have I mentioned I have moved into a bitter phase?

Once I worked at a place on the 34th floor, and we had a photograph of our view. It was all matted and framed, there, in the office. I thought that was so stupid. I mean, we should have just put a picture of the back of the secretary's head on the wall behind her while we were up.

A picture of the view. It still bugs me. No one else at work thought that was dumb.

Anyway, this bitter old hag had better get up and continue on with her life. The only way out is through, as they say. You know what else they say?

"What would Khloe and Lamar do?"

At one point, I was sort of hot, in a "she's 27 and probably a 7" kind of a way. Now I'm old and have to develop a charming personality. Guess how that's going.

  5. Have you heard of the book “Falling Apart in One Piece” by Stacy Morrison? I read lots of reviews about it and finally bought it … even though I wasn’t going through a divorce, my marriage was going through a really rough patch. I enjoyed the book, as much as you can enjoy a book about a woman’s REAL experience going through the hell of divorce … and staying civil to each other during the experience. Hugs to you, June.

  9. I’d give you the foal, but it wouldn’t be much fun. Mostly just expense and trouble. Think less cuddly, more…um, might break your nose when it panics at a shadow and rears up. Like a really bad, enormous puppy. For real though, you should start taking riding lessons. You love the animals (and lesson barns are always full of dogs and cats) and maybe a new challenge would be just the thing to take your mind off the crummy stuff? Lessons are all the fun of having a horse without all the commitment and responsiblity.

  10. Amish Annie, June definitley needs to get a pair of naughty riding boots, not to be confused with naughty pilgrim boots. says:

    You’re correct Letha, definitley a horse. A horse is so much sexier than a pony. Asking a potential date if he wants to come over and see a collection of whips seems like it would get better results than asking if he wants to come over and pet your pony. But then, maybe not. Both sounded kinda naughty.

  27. Things I learned during the pain. Only one of which is from a book.
    1. We are all just poor slobs trying to be loved and often doing it poorly. Hating get us nowhere.
    2. You can’t build happiness with someone else’s pain as the foundation.
    3. Three out of four men leave for someone else. Three out of four women leave to be alone.
    4. We all eventually do something we didn’t believe we were capable of doing.

Go to Home Depot and get some good tools and a good DeWalt drill. I am 5 years into this divorce thing…still sad at least once every day. I miss that assole and I wish I could get to the mad stage. There are however, enough moments of happiness each day to make life worth living.

  32. June, I was happy to see your note about not being mean to Marvin. You certainly haven’t been and I respect that about you sister. I can appreciate that your loyal supporters are all about you (me too) but he seems like a nice enough guy. When you’re ready, there are men who will appreciate your intelligence and wicked crazy wit. Maybe a really young one at first, (you know, for fun) and then someone who will actually remember Square Pegs, possibly be able to sing the theme song. Until then, Khloe and Lamar is likely the mindless entertainment you needed this weekend. I know you’re sad. And that makes me so. But, as long as you have your sense of humor, you’ll be ok. Probably even better than that.

  34. June, have you ever heard the explanation about if a group of people were to all put their problems into the middle of the room and told to pick one they would most likely take their own problem back? We’re familiar with our problem, we’ve adjusted to our own problem, other people’s problem’s are scarier. My point is, you do NOT want us to flood you with our stinkin’ problems to make you feel better, do you? Cause, we can do it! Oh, yes we can! There’s enough suckiness to go around and around and around. Keep venting. It’s healthy. One day at a time. Tomorrow will be better. : )
