I’m in a soulless, faux-deco apartment on the boardwalk in Venice.
I drove my lesbaru downstate yesterday to pop into a client conference for a few hours. Last night, I slept in a pristine white bed in a perfectly climate controlled room in the Anaheim-Orange Hilton, like a princess, sans… Read full post »
The other day I bought a filing cabinet off Craig’s List.
Not your average janky metal office furniture jobby, this filing cabinet is a deep faux mahogany affair that can easily pass as a classy end table. Up until now, my files have all been stashed in a cheap… Read full post »
I’m really into making pottery. I don’t talk about it all that much, partly because it’s hard to talk in words about something that happens purely from the right side of your brain, and partly because, well, it’s my thing, and I don't always feel like sharing it. Sometimes it&… Read full post »
Once upon a time I lived in a rent controlled 3-bedroom flat in San Francisco.

It was a year ago that I moved out of the house I shared with my last boyfriend, the V.H.B.P.D. **
I moved from our spacious 3-bedroom railroad flat in San Francisco to a quiet, tiny, cozy studio cottage in Mill Valley. It was a drastic and depressing change for… Read full post »
If you have a sensitive stomach or a clinical mollusk phobia like I happen to have, you may not want to read this story. But, having lived through this sordid nightmare myself, it would really make me feel better if you would read it. I cannot stand to suffer this kind… Read full post »
My father sends me letters. For the past year or so, he’s been hand writing missives about his childhood and mailing them to me 3,000 miles away. He’s getting up there in his years, and I think he wants to document his youth while he still has lucid memories of it.… Read full post »
