It's Everybody Can Bite Me Friday!

Over at the Bloggers Choice Awards I'm now in 13th place so thanks for voting and keeping me in the top ten like I asked.

You know how I make fun of people who post and then write Enjoy! after whatever it is they've posted?

Anyway, I never noticed this before but I made some microwave popcorn the other day and usually I just reach in and grab the bag because I'm too busy doing cranial surgery with my other free hand but this time I glanced at the machine only to discover the HUBRIS of Sharp by exploding my popcorn and then flashing ENJOY! when it was done. SO I PURPOSELY DID NOT ENJOY IT.

Do you know the artist Georgia O'Keeffe?
Yes, THAT Georgia O'Keeffe. She lived until she was 98 and painted until the day she died which I find exhausting even to read. The Whitney in NYC is giving a retrospective of her work and in an article in NY Magazine, they excerpt this from her journal, from a letter she wrote to her husband, photographer Alfred Stieglitz:

"...on my back - wanting to be spread wide apart."

So my deepest fear is realized. I have journals, mostly written when life did not run smoothly. So there are millions of them. There are parts that are very sexual and a few years ago I tried to edit them by tearing out all the sexual parts but eventually gave up because I'm apparently some kind of sex perv when it comes to documenting what various men liked and didn't like. Reading them back, especially the ones from the 90's, gave me a mini heart attack.

I will die and they will be read. Or I will never die and then I'm golden.

Tomorrow my episode of Seinfeld is on (Sat. Nov. 14 5:30 PM TBS) I think it's Pacific Time but I'm not sure.

And how weird is it that I got this video from my friend Mack Dryden of the hilarious Mack and Jamie comedy team? They're probably sick of hearing it but their version of Desperado is better than the original. Them boys is funny and can sing.

It's a funny video. Wait until the end and then watch the credits carefully and tell me THAT is not coincidental with what I posted yesterday. Mack didn't even warn me and I know he doesn't read my blog because THAT'S WHY I'M IN 13TH PLACE.

End of chat.

    Georgia O'Keefe is fabulous. If any of you ever get to Santa Fe, she has her very own museum (other than, perhaps Picasso, this is unusual -- no art other than hers). She also spent time in Hawaii, and so we have some of her paintings in Honolulu as well.
    Aloha, MJ

  2. Sorry, it will not let me vote for you again.

    Don't want to publish those journals now and at least make the profit yourself? Perhaps they would be a good base for a movie . . Oh, right, you already have a screenplay (or two or three)

  3. i didn't vote for your blog yet . don't worry , after i have done that you will be number 1 .
    i didn't know about Georgia O'Keeff 's work . thank you . i am going to look for .
    THAT episode is great , but for now one i am going to watch with other yes .
    ENJOY !!!

  4. -->Is that The Dinner Party episode? It's on 5:30 p.m. EST on TBS too. I've seen it a few times before but this time I'll look for you to ENJOY. haha...

  5. I second the Georgia O'Keefe museum in Santa Fe as a must-visit attraction. In addition to being an amazing painter, O'Keefe was positively brilliant as a thinker and philosopher. Some of her quotes that are sprinkled around her museum are still haunting me with their wisdom.

  6. Hey, just wanted to let you know I made you my "Friday Feature" for today.

    It's nothing like being listed as a "blog of note" but you might get one or two more visitors and one or two more votes at Blogger's Choice out of it.

    Main thing is, I wanted to let you know how much I like your blog. Thanks for the laughs, and keep 'em coming!

  7. I read my straightlaced grandmother's letters to my grandfather from before they got married. Now that woman knew her way around a well let's say man. She would have made a sailor blush.

    Also and too did you ever see the episode of My Name Is Earl where their episode of COPS was on tv? That is what it made me think of when you said My Episode of Seinfeld. :)

  8. You need to make a pact with you BFF. If you die before she does she must burn those journals for you..or publish them!

  9. Wow, that painting is amazing!!

    Yeah, tore out a bunch of pages about two years ago, I think maybe the whole notebook should be burned. No one needs to know my deep thoughts after death!

  10. Amazing painting Suzy...thanks so much for the sweet comments on my Johnny post. I always appreciate your feedback girl. I hope you have a great night! Kori xoxo

  11. I'm teaching O'Keeffe in art class right now. She's phenomenal. If money were no object . . .

    If only YouTube was around when you Kiki was up to his bird-carrying antics.

  12. Burn the journals - I mean, unless they've got good comedy material in them...

  13. Love Georgia O'Keefe!

    Do NOT burn your journals! You'll need them when you begin your first memoir and you don't have to wait until you're at death's door to do this Suzy!

  14. So what? No one has mentioned the obvious? Which is just how much that Georgia O'keefe painting resembles a vagina! Great choice of pic to post!!!!

  15. So why don't you just give me your pervy sex journals and I will keep them safe for you.

    No, really.

    No, really!

    What, you don't believe me?

    Come on, I'll tell everyone they're mine.

  16. Does everyone have sex journals? I thought I was so unique.

  17. Love O'Keefe!
    Love Seinfeld! Will definitely catch this one!

  18. You could always fake your own death and see what happens. At least you'd know.

  19. I'm still trying to figure out the damn picture. Is that what Marie Barrone sculpted and donated to her church? They graciously declined.
