It has been a busy month already.
July 1: Worked production on "Losing It With Jillian," as the show swung through Miami. I have to admit, if you want to lose weight, there's no need to begin a life-altering exercise regimen. Just get a job on the staff of her show, and you will run around for 12 hours lifting things and carrying things and you will wear yourself out. Sadly, I didn't see much of Jillian herself, just one time when she walked by me; that was disappointing because instead of walking, I had hoped she'd sit on a tray and make someone drag her around while screaming motivational commands through a megaphone. If you don't know what that reference means, you obviously haven't seen her shows.
July 2: My birthday. Gifts: a hand-made leather notebook, this awesome clothes presser, and three ties and a shirt.
July 3: Nomi Malone's birthday, 7/3/73, as mentioned in "Showgirls." Or is it really her birthday? Again, if you don't understand the reference, you haven't seen it. And if that's the case, why not? I love this movie and I watched it again for the zillionth time.
July 4: Independence Day! I did absolutely nothing. But that's okay.
July 5: Put everything on high shelves, to puppy-proof my apartment—and welcome the arrival of these black lab mix troublemakers:
Don't be fooled by the innocent glow in his eyes. He just chewed my curtains.
This little guy and his two brothers are currently peeing on every available surface in my tiny studio apartment. They were rescued from the county pound; I don't know where their stories beyond that. So I am foster-parenting them, hanging onto them until they get adopted. Or until Cruella DeVil comes by and says she's going for a darker wardrobe this season. If these pups eat anything else in my apartment that is not served in a bowl, I may donate them to turn them into a nice pair of furry gloves. Just kidding. I love all three of them already and totally dropped a pile of cash on toys.
If you see me wandering about with the dogs, feel free to say hello.
What will July 6 bring?? I'm exhausted.
