Question Mark and the Mysterians

Someone in the comments yesterday asked if we could have question day today and seeing as I have to dash off to the doctor, let’s do so.

(I have a mysterious mole. It has a Russian accent, first of all. I made this appointment months ago, but now with Iris’s vet appointment, going to Edsel’s vet to pick up his $130-a-month heart meds, my trip to the regular doctor and now this, it’s medical week here at House of June.)

So, go ahead. Ask me any question. I’ll likely answer it right there in the comment section when I can, unless of course said Q bugs the shit out of me.

“Does your tree have a face, June?”

heeeeee…

Answer you soon!

XO,
June

  1. Do you have anymore ghost stories you haven’t already shared with us? I loved those. Also, are you still getting Botox? I think you are awesome and I read every day. Rock on!

  3. What was the most fun you’ve ever had? Or alternatively, when was the most fun (funnest?) time of your life?

    • Hmmmm. I remember most of college being pretty fun. I had waves of friends. Like, the first wave was people I met in the dorm. Then it was people I met at the museum where I worked. Then where I bartended. Each wave was fun in its own way. Seattle was also fun because big city and new friends. Some years at this job, say, 2012 through 2015, were really fun and I had lots of friends here and we all went out a lot.

      Right now kind of blows in the fun department.

      • My fun department also blows right now. 25 years ago on a Thursday night, I’d be pre-gaming at my apartment before going out to Ladies’ Night at the bar, hoping to be picked up by Mr. Right. Tonight, I’m going to pick up a book at a library. Vastly different expectations of a Thursday night.

    • I know Chris and Lilly because they read me and said, “We’re nearby and we have baby chicks.” I mean, I can be lured by baby anything. Not baby humans. That would be absurd. But really, I am so glad I know them and consider them good friends, but have put up boundaries since then due to some weird-ass shit from people who do NOT have boundaries. So I guess the answer is probably not at this juncture.

  8. Oh, and glad your mole was fine. I was at tge dermatologist this am too. My moles are all the same kine. They look like different colors and they get bigger but they are not cancerous. She did not even see pre cancer stuff on my face and I have never been a sunscreen person. My siblings have fair Irish skin, but I managed to inherit my grandma’s hungarian blood. Thankfully I did not get her tree trunk legs- those went to my unfortunate sister!

    • No, I was not. But I wasn’t used to having zero boyfriend. I mean, I went maybe three months, tops, between men from 9th grade to when I broke up with Ned, so that was unusual. Mostly I just made myself sit still and deal with it and now the idea of having a boyfriend just seems fekking weird. At first, I literally didn’t know what to do with myself. What the hell do I do on a Saturday? Or a Thursday night? But I just tried stuff, and learned what I liked, and now it seems perfectly normal, even preferable, to wake up Saturday and say, I get to do whatever the hell I want today.

    • Not really. When Ned and I broke up, he didn’t call me, which is fine, sort of, but I was really devastated. Then, maybe two months after the breakup, I invited people to my I’m Going to Die Alone party a month before said party. Dick Whitman had his girlfriend respond to me right before the party saying they’d “double-booked” and would not be there. Yeah. I invited you way before the night. You didn’t double-book. You picked something else you’d rather do. AND you didn’t even contact me yourself? No. I needed my friends then and he proved to not be one. Then there was the terrible thing where I didn’t know his mom was that ill and I tried to get to Winston (45 minutes away) to see her but didn’t make it on time. His sister unfriended me after that. So I think the hurt feelings now go both ways.

  9. This might be too nosy, so I will understand if you decline to answer. When online dating, which app works best for you? Would you share your profile, only because I think it would be a hilarious and interesting read. Some of us are single (me) and would appreciate commiserating.

    • I have used OK Cupid, Match, JDate (except there are no Js here), Tinder, Bumble and…what the hell else? Oh, Hinge. They were all dumb, but Tinder is best for the volume of men. I have no profile currently but when I do I change it regularly. I mention my dislike of text speak and emojis. I also find men like it if you say you need help with something. Like, “I really enjoy living alone except for when I see a large bug. Looking for someone to dash over and dispose of bug.” I get LOTS of responses when I say something like that.

      • Well! While I don’t feel qualified to comment on le boobies, although I’m sure they’re spectacular even if choking a whale, I can tell you two things , or possibly three because I never concisely get to a point….
        1. You obviously are making people happy because many of us check your “not blog” to start out our day. Screw George and Robin, or morning radio….June is where it’s at! I even read your blog before I start up my audible book and I can tell you, not many things rank higher than audible books in the morning!
        2. I actually have a Book of June semi-success story. As predicted, my job is due to end in February so I did enroll in a bookkeeping certification course- although court reporting was really a close second in terms of options – logistically I was just having a difficult time figuring that out. The reader advice was very much appreciated and taken to heart. You’ve got an amazing group of people here! However!!!!
        3. I have an even more successful Book of June story……. 🙂 When I saw the window you purchased and hung, I had not seen anything like that and immediately felt motivated to ….try something. I went and bought 10 old windows and went saucer shopping and started in. Unfortunately, I ran into some issues with the old window frames I purchased and decided to make my own frames instead, which took a couple of weeks to hammer out the particulars considering I am not a master wood worker in the slightest! Then, I switched to tempered glass and resin and the END RESULT from this run-on 3rd point is I am now participating in art shows and have a website! http://www.windowsauce.com 🙂 All because of you, June! ❤ ❤ ❤

    • Oh, yes. Yes, I was. I mean, I’m always low-level depressed, but I remember driving around there and seeing the mountain on sunny days and falling absolutely in love with the place. A few months after I got there, my aunt came to visit, and on Friday night all my new friends got together to meet her (they invented a secret Aunt Mary handshake), and I remember us all going back to my apartment late at night after a fine night at the bowling alley and the gay bar and thinking, “Look how fast I created a group.”

    • I’ve had anxiety since I’m 8, so getting up and functioning each day is scary for me. But the first thing that came to mind was back in 2000. I have never wanted children, not once, not for even a moment. I married Marvin because he didn’t either. Before we even moved in together I had my tubes tied. This was back when insurance was actually good and the whole operation cost me $40. Anyway, that was in 1996, and in 2000, I got pregnant. I knew right away and no one believed me till I went to my doctor (who also didn’t believe me) (she quit the following winter) tested me and I was.

      The scariest thing I ever did was decide to go ahead and have a child. I was terrified but I was happily married, we had decent jobs, and it had fought hard to get there. I decided on Thanksgiving day and miscarried that same day. So.
