Wow - what a view! The gals have been spending a lot of time talking about perspective lately. Get to the top of the mountain and look around. Take it all in. See what's important. Last seat on the plane as you take off. Who's got your back?

Dancing With The Hoarders

New reality TV show idea

Dancing With The Hoarders! 

Take a sequined Snooki or Kardashian, drop them off at a hoarder's house, have them spin around and around the living room with a guy in overalls, leaping over Barbies and boxes, clearing out the mess along the way. 

It's a win, win.

Dog Days

In addition to all the bad health jujubeees circling around me, Sully the dog has seen some better days, as well. He's old. The hearing is going. Eyesight right behind. Hips aren't great. We've traded our walks for grass lounging. Suddenly he's a picky eater. I'm at the store every one or two days now to buy dog food, since he changes his mind daily so I can't load up a case at a time anymore. He makes noises all the time, grunting, some sort of sneeze-like nose clearing sound, and achy rolling over noises. On certain days, he can't make it up on the couch or the bed or into the car, needing a little push. He doesn't sleep through the night anymore, which means yours truly doesn't either, and when I let him out into the dark night, I'm afraid he's going to fall in the pool. I'm trying to be nice. I've been giving him medicine. Treats. Lots of treats. I'm babying him.  It's a good thing I knew him when he was cute. And he was. Oh my God, so cute. Total tiny white, fluffy ball with one big black spot in the back cute.

And he still is.

Movie Madness - Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

Hilarious! I can't wait to see it again.
New favorite word: WANKER

How Novel

Little present from in-town-for-a-minute Cathy. There's definitely a book in our crowd somewhere...

Human Planet

"We're such a diverse species. It's incredible how different we all are, but yet we share roughly the same hopes and dreams for life. We're essentially looking for a roof over our head, looking to find a mate in life and feeding ourselves and looking after our offspring. And that's about it, really."

Spring Training

DBacks game on a Saturday night, hot dog w/o the hot dog, perfect weather, little kids running around, fast ball over first whooshing by Shawn's ear...

Gimme A Break

It's been a shit few months. Hospitals, illnesses, procedures, sad death in Arcadia, heartbreaking violence in Paradise Valley, Napoleon-like doctors that aren't so Dynamite, grounded planes, coast-to-coast familial bad news, bad hips, knees, a broken gall bladder, poor memory, shot hearing and, in addition to everyone around me falling apart, my pinkie has hurt for weeks (something to do with four square and the monkey bars back in the day) and there's nothing I can do about anything. Nothing makes a difference, except maybe crawling into bed at 7:30 and hoping for a better day tomorrow. But, it's Spring. Regeneration. Pregnant (?) with possibilities. Time for a break. I can feel it. Bright stars in the sky. Orange blossoms...

Life's too short

Our new Diva friends.

My dad says, "Life isn't fair." I wish I had something other than that to tell beautiful Kenzie about her father's passing.
But nothing else makes sense.

Leslie Remakes America

Check out our incredible Leslie on the new Yahoo series Remake America.

Dr. Everythingwillbealright

Let's Go Crazy
Dearly beloved, we have gathered here today
To get through this thing called life
Electric word life it means forever and that's a mighty long time
But I'm here to tell you there's something else
The afterworld, a world of never ending happiness
You can always see the sun, day or night

So when you call up that shrink in Beverly Hills
You know the one Dr. Everything'll Be Alright
Instead of asking him how much of your time is left?
Ask him how much of your mind, baby
'Cause in this life things are much harder than in the afterworld
This life you're on your own

Movie Madness - The Secret World of Arrietty

Made it to lunch with the ladies at the Jungle, but then life got in the way of the movie. New Movie Madness Maven, Carol, however, got there and gave it a spectacular review - so I'll get there soon.

Cars and Coffee

Shawn and the boys standing around his friend's Bugatti. I'm all up-to-date on the car after watching a "how it's made" show the other day. Taking more than a year to make, it's really more like an airplane than a car and costs over $2 million (car buddy is in a pretty seedy industry - something Rush Limbaugh's been blowing on and on about lately).
Meanwhile, this shiny red piece of art rolled into it's first cars and coffee clothes-on circle jerk for a look at me, look at me gorgeous morning in the sun.

Six days to go 'til the big 21 and Shana's down fake ID number two, snagged by a bouncer that went to high school with the not fake Bonnie Bea. I told her I could try to doctor up one of her old ones to get her through the next week until she's legal...
