I'm Following Vernon...He's my Messiah

Gotta love that Bill Hicks. (Buy Rant in E Minor if you want to make your bitter self laugh. All his CDs are good, but I require at least one listen to the Willie Nelson IRS song a day for max performance.

It really shouldn't be sandal weather in January in Nashville, but I'm milking the shit out of it.

So I unloaded the Skeksis-free van last night. My apartment is crowded again, mostly with laundry that needs to be laundered and sorted, and like as not given to Goodwill.

I donated over $500 worth of clothes and appliances to Goodwill last year, and I still have too much stuff. I don't get it. I think my t-shirts are performing eugenics experiments or something.

I did find my Resplendent Muumuu, just so the BUSTies know. It's baaaaaaack!

Damn, I hate having nothing to say. Here's some pointless info:

What I'm Wearing: thong sandals, one-off comfy jeans, Chairman Meow shirt, burgundy bra that I would like to burn because of its sheer pointlessness, dreadlock ponytail.

What I'm (Re)Reading: The Idiot Girl's Action-Adventure Club: True Tales from a Magnificent and Clumsy Life,by Laurie Notaro, because I don't feel up for anything in the least serious. She's not my favorite writer, but I'm glad there are other people out there who feel stupid for some of the same reasons as me, most of the time. Although on my worst day, I think I was a better drunk than she.

"And then she asked me the strangest question I've ever heard... 'What chyoo readin' for?' Not what am I reading, but what am I reading... for. Well, I guess I read for a lot of reasons, but mainly so I don't become a F'in Waffle Waitress!"

Rant in E-Minor is my favorite Bill Hicks CD, and somewhere between moving from PA to FL & back it disappeared. I'm replacing it soon, and can't wait to hear it again. The new one's pretty darned good too, though.

I do like Laurie Notaro a lot- her books are always good for a super-fast, funny read. I like her for the "Thank Elvis someone else has gone through this too" quality of her writing. There's another new book coming in May, apparently.
