Miss Beehive 1963

On nights like this
When the world's a bit amiss
And the lights go down
Across the trailer park
I get down, I feel had
Feel on the verge of going mad
And then it's time to punch the clock

I put on some make-up
Turn on the tape deck
And put the wig back on my head
Suddenly I'm Miss Midwest Midnight Checkout Queen
Until I head home
And I put myself to bed

I look back on where I'm from
Look at the woman I've become
And the strangest things seem suddenly routine
I look up from my Vermouth on the rocks
The gift wrapped wig's still in the box
Of towering velveteen

I put on some make-up
Some LaVern Baker
And pull the wig down from the shelf
Suddenly I'm Miss Beehive 1963
Until I wake up
And I turn back to myself

Ummm... okay...

Daytime Emmy's are April 28th. Here is the category for:

Outstanding Achievement In Hairstyling

Dr. Phil (Syndication) Annette Jones, Hairstylist; Mimi Vodnoy-Love, Hairstylist
Full Frontal Fashion (We) Christine Fennell, Hairstylist
The Oprah Winfrey Show (Syndication) Andre Walker, Hairstylist

Is it just me? Now I loves me some Dr. Phil but... :/

I mean the five ladies of The View have only 3 hairstylists. Dr. Phil has 2?

That's a real headscratcher!!! (Pun intended)

Well, THAT was Interesting.

I'm sitting here at my computer, minding my own business, watching a re-run of the news and I look up and see flashing lights in my dining room window. So I go to my front door look outside and see 4 police cars, an ambulance, an EMT truck and a fire engine outside my house! They took someone away on a stretcher and the cops were talking to my neighbors and a crowd of 20-somethings across the way!


Hmmmm, I feel I should know about what went down just now. I have kids to worry about. Guess I could check the LAPD site?


These are the moments we treasure, no?

Two Years And It's Still So Hard to Accept

My Mother, My Angel. I miss you now more than ever.

Do you know how much I love you? Did you know how much I loved you? Do you know how much I want to hold you? Want to kiss you? Want to talk with you? My God, how I miss you.

Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home

Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
And don`t know what to do
The memory of love will see you through

Oh, love to some is like a cloud
To some as strong as steel
For some a way of living
For some a way to feel
And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go
And some say love is everything
And some say they don`t know

Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict, full of change
Like a fire when it`s cold outside
Or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you

~John Denver


From an entry in my other diary 2 years ago...

The saddest day in the history of my life...
2004-03-19 18:00:28
My Mother died last week and I am grief stricken beyond all belief. My Mother was my best friend. She was the warmest thing in my pathetic little life. And my heart shivers at the notion that I will never feel the softness of her gentle hand stroking my hair. Or her tender whispers in my ear full of ’I love you’s.’ I spent every single day with her. This is the lowest point of my entire life and I don’t know how I’m going to go on.

I miss her more then I could ever imagine.


My love for you lives on, Mommy. Until that day that we will be together again, I am forever...

Your loving daughter.

Silly Dad!

My Daddy sent this to me today. Teehee! Cute! He's so silly!

Thanks, Dad! I needed that! I've been feeling so yucky today. I've got a really really bad bout with the flu, AGAIN!!! Bleh! I feel awful. As several of my friends have attested this flu season, NyQuil is my friend! All hail the Q!

And, love you, Dad! ;)
