Stamped by Life

I realize no one may read this and that's just fine. The lady's had about 18 months of various stamping. Patriarchies come in all shapes and sizes, and she's currently shuffling around all oppressions be they professional, familial, religious or ovarian in nature. We must also make mention of a certain patriarch that might possibly be the littlest patriarch ever. Stay tuned.

Stamped by Cat People!

There are some things a woman doesn't want other women to understand 
- Simone Simon as Irena Dubrovna in "Cat People"

As the Lady completes six blessed months of returning to the workforce, she's been wont to reconsider the nature of what's stamping her on any particular day. Goodness knows it's always something!

It's possible that my superior probably should have questioned my feline vs. canine proclivities during the interview process. What I've discovered is that nothing makes the Lady drift into a reverie faster than an indepth discussion about multi-tiered cat trees.

Job Searching with Charles Bukowksi: Godot Edition

I think that's the wrong Bukowski

"It's best to take walks late at night. It's best to do your business only on Mondays and Tuesdays. It's best to sit in a small room with the shades down and wait." - Charles Bukowski

Meanwhile, here's your daily dose of Spongebob:

"Forts win wars Squidward"

The Lady is not permitted to walk in scary Del Aire late at night, though she does have enough decorative pillows to build a formidable fort. When you're stamped you can never be too careful.

Why do I get the notion that igoogle's "Literary Quote of the Day" might be taking said quotes just a wee mite out of context?

PSA: Fat Varmint Edition

Squirrel sitting on wood
Hickamore, Hackamore on the King's Kitchen Door. All the King's horses and all the King's Men couldn't get Hickamore Hackamore off the King's Kitchen Door.

A Shortstack update.....

Firstly, The Lady is infinitely grateful to still be employed. It takes little more than a new lipstick or cocktail to remind her of those challenging days of.....5 months ago. I feel very fortunate.

However, I'd like to offer a bit of clarity to those searching and those kindly folks who must observe their friends or family go through this difficult and mind-numbing time:

I'm pretty sure Domestic Patriarch was convinced my life was like THIS

Which is great, because every time he came home to see me slumped on my side of the couch with a face full of Pringles, it was actually more like THIS.

But most days were kinda like this.  

That's when even the most industrious of squirrels need an adequate supply of wine, chocolate, best friends, and bad movies from the 80s. Then the quest doesn't seem so bad at all!

Let's Hope We Never Go Through This Again....

But, but you guys are my friends!

Why, hello!

The Lady is easing her way back, having gone through a litany of strange adventures lately - how to sum up many weeks worth of fried green tomatoes, Floridian swamps, Adrian Zmed and Grey Dawn? I'm still workin' on it.......

Tragically (or rather, melodramatically), I've returned to the somewhat disheartening news that SOAPNET will be leaving my beloved TV Lineup, to make way for more kid friendly viewing. How on earth "Days of Our Lives" did not pass muster for the 4 year old demographic, I'll never understand. Fraternal Patriarch certainly never suffered as a result of watching Stefano trap Marlena in a Parisian sewer in the summer of '93. As for the year of demonic possession, I plead the 5th.

Friends I've Made: A Friend is a Friend Til the End of the End

A new friend somehow found his way to the lady's Del Aire estate just in time for Easter! That's a heck of a red eye from Shanghai!  The Lady almost went certifiably insane while attempting to finish him up on Holy Saturday upon realizing that she'd sewed this Panda's nose, mouth and eyes to his bum! But he turned out thoroughly charming and full of cock-eyed character. He'll set up his homestead down south with Fraternal Patriarch and his Lady. In the spirit of this blog, we hope this Panda finds himself with employment  to make the world a better place. 

And now a brief update on Eco-Pup. He faithfully resides with the kindest of couples at their WestSide Chalet - he clearly is not too good to bestow some kindess when it's merited to his former owners:

  On the left is proud and tired Domestic Patriarch after his long quest to finish the LA Marathon. On the Right is Eco-pup helping him rest. A kind and goodly pup if ever there was one.
