It's a few days until Christmas, and I'm in San Diego with my parents. It's 6:40 am, and I'm awake, the rats, even, are sleeping. I brought them down here, the cage bumping around in the backseat, as finding a rat-sitter in LA at Christmastime was a difficult proposition.

Fake Rubber CockroachOh. I just announced I wasn't in my apartment. If anyone wants to break in, watch out for the cockroaches, they may have opposable thumbs by now, in fact, they may have a manifesto by now, and they are ORGANIZED.

Universal Waite Tarot Deck and Book SetI like to anthropomorphize things. I also like to coddle my rats until they look at me with those little beady eyes and say "put me back in my cage now, I'm bored, and there, there are walnuts."

Strange times. Interesting times. I went in a Mervyns that was going out of business a few days ago, and it looked like a riot was taking place.

The empire is falling. Taste the fruits of empire while you can. Before it's all gone gone gone.

I did a tarot reading this morning and drew the tower, crossed by the ten of swords.

If you would like to contribute to the fundraising for my poetry book, Lorazepam and the Valley of Skin, Extrapolations on Los Angeles, J.S. Davis of valeveil  is holding a fundraiser involving poetry in the streets of Stockholm.


A fabulous day is today. I am sitting with my dear darling Katie, and we just had band practice. We are gong to a reading tonight. Oh joy.

I just spent a week in San Diego and Reno learning about yurts, stew, and how many rats is a lot to deal with.

I am happily medicated. On D-listed, they refer to the Britney Spears tour as the "Don't be A'scared, Ahs on mah meds" tour.
Prosciutto Di Parma Imported from Italy aged 14 monthsThink of this as the "Don'd be a'feared, I'm on mah meds too!!! except I'm not going anywhere.

today is a day of leather and pink cupcake costumes. I awoke thinking of prosciutto cupcakes, and now I am one.

So, I am starting a new writing project. Details to follow.
SeXy Sailor Costume 4 Piece Set Weekend Pass Red White and Blue
Cherry Ames Army Nurse is coming along swimmingly! Here is our myspace.

And we made those sailor outfits all by ourselves...with just a lick and a promise.  They are much more modest than the one pictured here.

Life is sweet. Katie is especially sweet. I am having holiday neurosis, but, then again, this is normal.

Okay, the first rule in compulsive overshare is dreams.

The Sarah Palin mania (for all that I voted for obama) was triggered by a dream involving her and...ice cubes. Y'all can let your dirty mind work on that one.

However, I had an especially poignant dream last night, actually, two.

I dreamed that I had a pack of tarot cards and could make so much more sense of the world with their guidance.

This involved some hovering around my room with images from the major arcana blazing from my desk lamp and walls. (much like this Sprawl flyer)

Then I had this very sad dream about looking for a halloween costume in my grandmother's basement and mistakenly finding a dress worn by an young woman at Manzanar, the japanese internment camp which we recently visited. This was highly disturbing. For some reason I was compulsed to put it on, pale yellow with black trim, it fit perfectly, including the hat.

I started to cry.

I don't know if this is my fear of getting hospitalized on Friday, or the ache that comes from a poisonous reminder of human cruelty.
