Catch you on the flip side, Davy. Oh. Also? Tallulalina Jowlie.

In the past 24 hours, Iris slept on my head, Edsel bit me, and poor Davy Jones died. Who gets his locker?

I liked Davy Jones. I mean, didn't we all? And one of my fancy LA friends just told a story about him, on Facebook, and the gist of it is he was a lovely person. Of course, we already knew that.

 

What. You thought I WOULDN'T put in a You Tube clip today? I practically AM YouTube by now. YouJune. Anyway, once he took Marcia to prom we all knew he was a good guy.

Oh, and Edsel didn't mean to bite me. We were playing with his stupid toy that if you ask me resembles a marital aid, and we were tugging-of-waring, which is a fine phrase, and his ludicrous teefs came down on my finger instead of the toy. "OWWWOWOWOWWWWwwwwww!" I said, and he was mortified. He kept pushing his luggish head into mine and wagging furiously, so I'd know how sorry he was. Then he groaned over to his sensitive chair and started at me for 70 hours, like he does.

…I just spent an inordinate amount of time looking for a photo of Eds in his sensitive chair,

IMG_1450
and you know what I should do? Is somehow organize my photos on this computer. Anyway, my Mac has a fabulous feature called "Faces" that just shows you, you know, faces, and I got interested in looking at that, and I found a lovely photo of my pal Miss Doxie.

Even though she's this annoyingly pretty–and I was with her that day and all she basically did was shower, throw on a little lipstick and go–you can't help but like her. Mostly because she sends me stuff like this:

Lurightleg
Would I still be able to love Tallulah if she grew an Angelina Jolie leg? Tallulalina Jowlie.

Anyway.

Oh, and I went to lunch with my …friend yesterday.

We had Vietnamese food. Yes, I did drag out my tired old joke about Agent Orange chicken.

IMG_0627
The place had everything. Marvelous decor,

IMG_0632
in-proportion disco balls,

IMG_0629
lots of food.

This leaf is from the collection of weird leafy things …friend put in his soup. He ordered an enormous bowl of soup, then said, "I come here quite often. It's a break from the boring soup and salad I usually get at lunch."

"But you're …eating soup. With leafy salad-y things in it," I pointed out.

IMG_0630
It was then that I turned to the literature and read that.

IMG_0633
I parked right here under this sign, and you can imagine how this did not bother me at all. "Walk in is." Or perhaps the "in" owns something. Not the walk-ins, though, because there is no hyphen to connect walk-in. Really the whole sign gave me a hive. I wish people would call me before they spend money on signs. Did I ever tell you about the place I drove past EVERY NIGHT in LA that said, "Eyebrown Wax"? Or what about the other place, that sold "stuffanimal"?

It is hard to be me.

Somehow during lunch, I mentioned the fact that I had gotten a perm in the '80s and afterwards I emailed this fine photo to …friend.

6a00e54f9367fb88340133ecf7216a970b-800wiWhat hair? Thanks, loved ones, for warning me not to get a perm.

I had better slip on my turquoise loafers and get started with my day. Some idiot felon-looking person already came to my door and asked if I wanted an estimate re my trees. It was 9 a.m.! Rude. And he did the thing where he rang the doorbell, then knocked insistently, as though he had something crucial to tell me. You can imagine how this pleased the dogs.

I was in my robe, and I am telling you he gave me the once-over. THE ONCE-OVER! While disturbing me at the early early hour of 9:00 in my very own home! Guess who did not say sure, give me that estimate. Perv.

Catch you on the flip side.

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.

  1. June! Congrats on your call-back from the job interview! That is one l-o-n-g two weeks to have to wait to hear from them. At this juncture you are all on equal footing and that’s why everyone is coming back for the second interview. This is the part where you can shine, put everyone at ease, and make them see that you are the candidate who’s going to blend in with the company and be an easy fit. Personality is what seals the deal.
    Also, not answering the door when someone knocks isn’t an option here, (outside L.A.)as one commenter recommended. Police advise against it as then the bad guys assume that no one is home and break in, and whoops…..you’re inside! You don’t want that.

  4. June, you think like I do. I only have a 25% chance of getting the job. Let’s try to think positive and say, wow! I have a great chance of getting that job. But before I go getting all positive-y, I must once again throw out my negative thinking: I wonder why it took them two freaking weeks to call you. Fingers crossed for you. I hope you don’t have to wait another two weeks to hear the final outcome.

    I live out here in Amish/Mennonite land. I feel odd sometimes just being a practicing Lutheran out here. Anyway, if you can believe, sure enough, two nicely dressed young men showed up at the back door wanting to spread the word…is it Seventh Day Adventist?…I forget. Anyway, Stud Muffin asked them if they knew they were in a large, strongly conservative Mennonite area. They said yes but they were bound to run into some folks who wanted to hear the word of God.

    They skeedadle… I used to ask Mormons if they would like a hit off my bong and a coke.

    Sorry about the bite…..been there, done that.

    The urgent care is literally 5 minutes from my house……..I got a tetanus shot, antibiotics in my buttal region, and a filled prescription and was home in less than 30 minutes from the time of the biting incident. My cat greeted me like nothing had happened. My leg ached like a son of a gun for a week.
    The vet said that cat needed nothing for her exposure to my blood. Go figure.
