The movers are here.

I am still shocked at what was under my couch…
17 rawhides buried by my creatures.
2 pairs of slippers.
a broken wine glass????
7 tennis balls (creatures again)
dust
dust
dirt
bottle of lotion.
panties.
magazine (nothing good Keith)
my diary. hehe.

One of the movers smells like a rotten cheeseburger and its making me nauseous.

I tossed about 5,000 things into my bedroom this morning thinking I would throw stuff out and go through things… Not sure the door will open.

Where did all this crap come from?

3 glasses of cheap pink sweet wine into my night.

11 boxes packed.

8 bags of trashed hauled to the curb.

Two sets of mattresses in the hallway ready to be taken to the truck.

I am almost 35. Why am I dragging around so much crap? Seriously. We just moved a half of a year ago and I have boxes that are unopened and nothing really missing from my daily trek through life.

My Mother’s condition worsens.

My financial condition worsens.

My relationship remains stable and loving but in a holding pattern…

Its 9 freakin thirty and the movers will be here in 11.5 hours.

I am moving back from the burbs where I can escape my neighbors and friends at all times. I will be forced to see them all on a freakin daily basis. The grocery store. The dogpark. The f*cking coffee house.

I will be doing my duty as a child. I will be saving for a house and more freedom. I will be going to school.

Did I mention that I have decided to become a Veterinarian? Thats right. The school that is more difficult to get into than medical school. No stress. Really.

Found a stash of tomato boxes left over from the farmers market. Good for picture frames and DVD’s.

I won’t be able to escape my friends.

My friends will be closer.

My f*cking shrink will be 5 blocks away.

My dogs will love going for runs over the bridge and around the monuments. They will miss the yard but I think they would rather be with me while I trudge through a workout than in a yard alone while I cook dinner.

I will be closer to my Grandparents and the baby.

I won’t be able to escape my Grandparents and the baby.

I should probably shut up and finish packing.

I just tossed every magazine I own, all clothing I don’t love and books I will never read.
Thank you Oprah.

I didn’t fall off the face of the earth… I have been building my website and launching a lil store!!!!!!!!  I have channeled my creative energy into my old jewelry business – revamped it and combined it with my desire to help fund spay/neuter programs.

I know – no porn.  I suck.

I can’t help myself. The more I think about old school beauty and the appreciation of the female form in its natural state, the more I think it needs a comeback… Look at Marilyn Monroe in her centerfold shot in 1962 monroe_playboy.jpg

Definately all natural and curvy. And HOT AS HELL! She is still considered one of the most beautiful and sensual women that ever lived and she would be considered a plus size model today!

This one is my FAVORITE with just a hint of nipple… a hint and a tease go a LONG way with flirtation.

Here is another shot I love – a 1962 playmate of the month centerfold..

Playmate Bunny Laura Misch
Playboy has an enticing and long history. There was a 25 year period 1960-1985 when playboy owned and operated Playboy clubs, 25 clubs in total, all over the world. The “Bunnies” served coctails, flirted with patrons, slipped tips into their cleavage and changed history a little bit for women then.hh5.jpg

The original club was in Chicago, Hef’s hometown. The original Bunny’s name was Ilsa Taurins who at the time was dating Hef’s promotions manager. When Ilsa and her mother sewed the costume, satin with a tail and ear’s headband… little did they know what a sex symbol they had just thrown together!a3.jpg

So here are just a few – since you have been enjoying them so much! I don’t have all of their names but provided the ones I have..

I know I have been posting about Playboy and natural looking women recently… but this has been on my mind as well.

Here are some green things I have started this year…

1. once a week I put a box of books (I have a TON) out in front of my house with a note that says, “free to a good home” in the hopes that other people will read them and enjoy them and not buy a book for another week. I am also going to only buy used books from now on (thank you gertrudegrannypanties).

2. I am composting!!! Not a lot, but I am. Dryer lint, coffee grinds, veggies and other lil things. I am planning on purchasing some red worms in the spring!!!

3. I work in a big animal hospital and almost daily during my downtime take a pile of paper from our recycling can and cut it in half put the two halves on top of each other to make a neat pile, staple along top in a straight line and make scratch paper pads. Sometimes I write a note with a little doodle on the front and give it to a coworker. They always use them and are always grateful! Martha Stewart had this on her show once and it involved alot more steps and they looked professional.

4. Replaced all the light bulbs with those green energy star ones.

5. Got a space heater for my bedroom and keep the heat for the rest of the house down.

6. Yes I am timing my showers… and brushing my teeth in the shower while rinsing off my shampoo/conditioner.

7. MY BIGGEST CHANGE is that I am cleaning the house with green cleaners and vinegar/water/baking soda/lemon juice. With 3 dogs, a cat a 13 year old and a muddy back yard I clean ALOT!

Got any other easy tips? I am all about the easy!

I am starting to obsess over the show “the girl’s next door” and old issues of playboy. Barbi Benton in particular stands out to me as one of the classic ultimate sex symbols.
playboy01.jpg

She met Hugh Hefner in 1968, when she was booked as “atmosphere” for his t.v. show “Playboy After Dark” which filmed A-list stars performing at hef’s mansion surrounded by Playboy Playmates. She said she pretended to be Hefner’s girlfriend for a couple of episodes and soon found herself living the role full time.

She was 18, he was 42. She was Hef’s girlfriend and lived with him from 1969-1976. She also became a recording star, a Vegas headliner and an actress.

She appeared on an episode of “the girls next door” and the new girls really didn’t care for her – but I googled her that night. I think she is hot as hell and just amazing!

The first classic playboy I bought featured her as Hef’s girlfriend in a spread that was just fun. She was hairy as a russian dairy woman. But it was hot as hell.

I would rather look at her than any of the present day hairless naked mole rats they have in everything now. Enjoy…

Today I was going through old emails to find a password to an email account I somewhate forgot… and I came upon the email I sent to my now landlord, from her craigslist ad. I realized the price in the ad was $50 less a month than my rent… So I looked through all my old checks and sure enough I have been paying $50 over the advertised price for 6 months.

How did I not notice this?

I sent the email, dear so and so – I found this email and would like to correct it now and subtract my overpayments from this month’s rent.

She emailed back and says “we informed everyone that it was actually $50 more a month and that is what your contract states”

Isn’t that the old bait n switch? False advertising? She never told me it was $50 more a month and she promised the apartment to me before I signed a contract…

What should I do?

Bet you didn’t know that I had 2 years of art school back in the day. I decided before I settled on Communications, to be an artist. I loved it. LOVED IT. And then somewhere about 10 years ago I just stopped creating. I use to draw pictures in my day-planner of the dogs I would see at the park and doodle disturbing images when I was down in the dumps.

I can not tell you why I stopped. I did keep making jewelry – but how creative is stringing beads?

The other day I was in the grocery store of all places and a sketch book caught my eye in the school supplies section. Now its as if I had never stopped! I am doodling and creating and thinking of buying paints again… It feels so amazing to channel this creative thing again.

Last night I sat in my bed with a glass of red wine and out poured a creepy old hollow tree with crows on the branches. It felt amazing. It would also seem that I haven’t forgotten all that I learned in my art classes. Yes I am a bit rusty, but its still there!
