Thanks for all the well wishes on finishing You Are The Camera. Special thanks to Lana for the good fortune! And I totally agree with you on the Jack K. issue -- don't get me started on those wretched commercials for cancer centers that "care" when your local doctor tells you that you don't have very long to live. Note the "results not typical" caveat after the inspirational story of surviving Stage Four pancreatic cancer.
At any rate, I'm worn out, worn down, and ready for the wrap party! In lieu of the light posts I'm usually wont to do about assisted suicide, sexual violence, and death, I'm going to opt for something a little more serious. It's no secret that I love clothes. So who are my fashion role models? Well, here's a partial list culled from television:
Lindsay -- main character on Freaks and Geeks. 1980 in metro Detroit. Army jacket and jeans. Good low mainentance look.
The women of Dark Shadows -- this is perhaps too obvious to even mention.
Joan on Mad Men -- I have a theory that of the women who watch this show, most either relate to Betty or Joan. I like Betty, but I love Joan and would kill for the necklace she wears dashing around the office.
Maude -- yes, you heard me. Bea Arthur is just that cool.
Morticia on the Addams Family -- again, maybe too obvious to mention.
Adriana on The Sopranos -- sometimes too much is just enough.

I'm enjoying evil little packets of something called Vibrant Cleanse. My friend Cal called me on my bullshit on this one, stating that I "in no way, shape, or form have any desire to cleanse" and referred to them as "hunger-strike packets" intended for weight control. Busted. Even so, no worries. I'm not doing any master cleanse and giving up food.
