My Room

Having been in the hospital for weeks now recovering from my final round of chemo makes me miss my room greatly. Living with 5 other people it's the only place I can truly call mine, where everything in the room serves a purpose and every object has some kind of meaning. This last year I've nested there trying to create the warmest and coziest environment.

I found about this movie a while ago, being the big Joseph Gordon Levitt fan that I am. The trailer is finally out! I'm pretty stoked about it. I couldn't have thought of anyone better to play me in a movie!

"When his friend Will Reiser developed cancer at 25, Seth Rogen thought, ''How can we turn this into a movie?'' And they did. The Reiser-penned dramedy 50/50 (out Sept. 30) stars Gordon-Levitt as Adam, a cancer patient, and Rogen (who's also producing) as his loutish friend. 50/50 doesn't downplay the disease's toll, but it definitely finds humor, like when Adam exploits his condition to attract women. ''Often with films about cancer I think, 'You made something sad seem sad for two hours. Congratulations!''' Rogen says. ''The real challenge is to make it seem anything but completely miserable.''

Oh Sarah Michelle, you're back!
Every now and then I need my fix and happy Buffy will always be there for me.
And now, you're starring in a new show I see. Ringer, a noiresque series about murder and wrong identities. I hope it's good cuz you deserve well written material. I'm curious to say the least...

Reading Rainbow

Coming across this piece by Olaf Hajek I immediately thought of Reading Rainbow. If you were born in the 80's or earlier you definitely know what I'm talking about. There's something quite conforting about being read to. Thanks dude from Star Trek!

Black Hole

Black Hole
In my way I pray, black hole take me away
and if it came today and sucked me away
I would jump right in and say
"Tomorrow is here today!"
in my way I pray, black hole take me away.

Mantra bound this skyward train,
like fanning flames
and I squeal out as I kneel and
summer rain.
But with this storm comes newly
born exit mundane.
mantra bound this skyward train,
like fanning flames...

Hoop the Flow

One of my dear friends and ex roommate has come along way. Her interest in hoops began tentatively. We had to move all the plants out of the living room when she would practice and duck behind each other to avoid getting knocked over by hoops that would clumsily fly off her body left and right.

Years later she has become a well known hoop instructor and performer in the San Francisco community. She teaches classes, leads workshops and soon will be taking her hooping experience to Mexico to impart some more dance, body and mind awareness and hooping magic.

I'm a bit too stiff to even try to look graceful with a hoop. But this woman knows what she's doing!

For more on Hoop the Flow, check out her website here.

Tina Fey

Tina Fey responds to some haters (how could anyone hate this woman? I don't understand!)

“Tina Fey is an ugly, pear-shaped, bitchy, overrated troll.”

Dear Centaurious,

First let me say how inspiring it is that you have learned to use a computer.

I hate for our correspondence to be confrontational, but you have offended me deeply. To say I’m an overrated troll, when you have never even seen me guard a bridge, is patently unfair. I’ll leave it for others to say if I’m the best, but I am certainly one of the most dedicated trolls guarding bridges today. I always ask three questions, at least two of which are riddles.

As for “ugly, pear-shaped, and bitchy”? I prefer the terms “offbeat, business class–assed, and exhausted,” but I’ll take what I can get. There’s no such thing as bad press!

Now go to bed, you crazy night owl! You have to be at NASA early in the morning. So they can look for your penis with the Hubble telescope.

“I’d stick it in her tail pipe.”

Dear SmarterChild,

Thank you so much for your interest. Whether you meant it in a sexual way or merely as an act of aggression, I am grateful. As a “woman of a certain age” in this business, I feel incredibly lucky to still be “catching your eye” “with my anus.” You keep me relevant!


Ms. T. Fey

It's Only Natural

"Tears begin in the heart,
but some of us deny the heart so often, and for so long,
that when it speaks we hear not one but a hundred sorrows in the heartbreak.
We know that crying is a good and natural thing.
We know that crying isn't a weakness,
but a kind of strength.
the weeping rips us root by tangled root from the earth,
and we crash like fallen trees when we cry."

Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram

A Little Piece of Heaven

Vampire Honeycomb

Had I been in this tame crowd I would probably be going wild as Vampire Weekend is one of my favorite bands. Nevertheless, this a great cover of an old Honeycombs song.
