DAY 73


The end of what could be in the very least described as a tumultuous year. A couple things I probably haven't mentioned in the last couple months--have been going to school, went to visit the relatives in Pennsylvania. They day before that a tire blew up in my face, ended up in the WHC ER. At least one of the doctors was hot. 
Also, there was the robbery and Perpetua's death, yet with all this I have come out feeling loved, cherished even. And fallen in love. I had thought of myself as a pretty non-sexual being, a eunuch, even. So, 2013, bring it!

SENSE AND SENSIBILITY

Or as they called it on Saturday Night Live, "Dense and Densibility." At one point Kate Winslet gets horribly upset over Greg Wise, goes for a walk in the rain and ends up with an "infectious fever." I can't tell you how many times I've gone out and got soaked and nothing happens to me. Still, at the end Emma Thompson ends up with Hugh Grant...

I DIDN'T MEAN TO CALL YOU THAT

Ok, yeah, you were drunk, but you DID call me that and it wasn't nice: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6G46Mw3PqM

DAY 69

Why am I so tired after about four hours in two hospitals/clinics?

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

LES MISÉRABLES

Did the Jewish thing, saw Les Misérables Christmas Day. Jean Valjean stole a loaf of bread and it ends up as a two-hour and 37-minute feature film. Great visuals, the vocals not all the best. It seems I am almost always Éponine: http://insidemovies.ew.com/2012/12/14/les-miserables-eponine-and-marius

Marius was a twit, but the Entertainment Weekly person put it well when she said "frankly, having a crush that doesn’t like you back is the very least of anyone’s problems in 19th century France."

DAY 68

Boy, Jesus, you really know how to stick it to people the day after your birthday. But it was your birthday, not ours.

And you assholes who robbed us, you NEVER thought you would take something you couldn't give back and it wasn't money, drivers licenses, debit cards or flash drives. And you managed to hurt all three of us, maybe more, in ways of which you never dreamed. I hope you're happy.

WEEK

Gas prices around $3.30/gallon in NW DC. Week ended with bitterly cold weather, almost too cold to go out last night, so I went with a guy to the Diner after last call.

BRIGHTER THAN THE SUN

"Swear you hit me like a vision
I, I, I wasn't expectin'
But who am I to tell fate where it's supposed to go?

Lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun
Brighter than the sun"

DAY 64

Nothing seems to make a woman more attractive to men than being pissed off at another man and wanting to stick it to him. Go figure.

DAY 63

The world did not come to an end as the Mayans predicted. Good thing I didn't do what I WANTED, which would have meant my behaving like a total asshole.

DAY 60

Total clusterfuck. I feel as though I've fallen through a rabbit hole or a worm hole or some kind of hole. Sometimes you just need to cuddle a pig.

Sunday, December 16, 2012

Saturday, December 15, 2012

WEEK

Dow down, gas was $3.31/gallon at the Sunoco Station at the corner of 14th and U, the place where I got my first-ever traffic ticket. Weather is chilly but not unbearable. After eight weeks of sucking, things now seem to suck less.

MY PRIDE STILL FEELS THE STING...

...you were my everything: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSBFehvLJDc

IN THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS...

I did not tell the McLean Bible Church assholes to go fuck themselves.

DAY 57

Eight weeks ago today we were robbed. Robbing the obsessive compulsive is a particularly shitty thing to do--we obsess/agonize over it twice as much as anyone else.

ETA-it was 28 people who were killed in Connecticut yesterday.

Friday, December 14, 2012

DAY 56

27 confirmed dead in Newtown, Connecticut. I pass the site of the robbery at least once every day.
Every traumatic incident feels more traumatic now--ambulances, cop cars...

WHY IS THIS NIGHT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER NIGHTS?

Oops, sorry, wrong holiday. Happy Chanukah!

WALK AWAY

This is what cops tell me to do: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmpJZ8hNZR0

And I just think this is a cool song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqAh1dQu_pg

DAY 50

Today is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Seven weeks ago we were robbed. Perpetua died four weeks ago.

Friday, December 07, 2012

WEEK

Dow closed up, weather got pretty cold, week ended rather pleasantly. The lowest gas price I saw was $3.35/gallon at the Sunoco Station on Harvard St. and one other place. On new meds but getting sloppy about the old ones. Not sleeping well and forgetting to eat.

janedoe@seductive.com

EVEN AT MY AGE

I still ache from desire: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0cZx6JN6SQ

Infamy

The Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor 71 years ago today. When I was a little kid it was on calendars like a holiday but my parents said it was inappropriate to wish peeps Happy Pearl Harbor Day.  Some peeps say last year's earthquake, tsunami and subsequent nuclear disaster were revenge for Pearl Harbor. And then there was Godzilla: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ln8-Y-fIbqM

DAY 49

This car ran into Mac's. I can vouch for my whereabouts at the time. First the fire at Shenanigans, now this. Who's next? Millie N Al's? North Sea? Pizza Boli's? Starbucks? The Diner?

LIFE DOES NOT IMITATE ART

A bunch of Law and Order SVU episodes on the USA network. DC cops are nowhere near as diligent. And yes, sexual crimes are heinous--at least I wasn't raped.

WHAT DO I STAND FOR?

Most nights, I don't know: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQkBeOisNM0

DAY 46

Talked to a cop tonight--he told me not to feel guilty. But do you realize I didn't mean for any of us to get hurt? And that I probably think about it a thousand times a day?

MATTERS OF THE HEART

The sister of a high school classmate is awaiting a heart transplant in California. Apparently I wouldn't make a good donor, even dead: http://hearttransplant.com/faqs_hearttx.html

TO THE ASSHOLES WHO ROBBED US:

You have no idea what you've done. I hope you're happy with the less than 60 dollars you got from me. Because things will never be the same. You suck.

AFTER ALL THAT WE'VE BEEN THROUGH...

I will leave it up to you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqq3tW3iACw

Saturday, December 01, 2012

WEEK

Bitter cold in the last couple days but warming up. I think the cheapest I paid for gas was $3.35/gallon at the Sunoco station on Harvard St. Working through medical stuff--it's a struggle to make appointments, take medications etc.

MASSAGING ASSHOLES

Talked with D about massaging assholes. I meant people who are assholes, not actual rectal massages.

"NOVEMBER...

...is the most disagreeable month in the whole year"

Louisa May Alcott

And now it's December, but yeah, it's been a sucky couple of weeks.

WORLD AIDS DAY

Today is World AIDS Day.

DAY 43

Six weeks ago we were robbed. Perpetua died three weeks ago. At least now I have two pigs again.

JANEY'S NEW BABY

Janey and Pepsi proudly announce their newest family member. His name is Patapsco, formerly "Cyclone" and he is an 11-month-old dark grey neutered American boar adopted from the Baltimore Humane Society, hence the name. We think he will be a satin. He was surrendered to the Humane Society on or around October 27th or 28th, date of birth given was December 28th, 2011. HIs official adoption date was November 27th of this year, his weight on that date was 2 lb, 1 oz. This was the bio on the society web page:

"Hi everyone! My name is CYCLONE, and I'm looking to blow my way into your heart! I was originally "bought" from a "pet store" by someone who unfortunately didn't realize that they have allergies, which they were unable to manage. Luckily, I was brought to BHS in the hopes of finding a true forever home. I'm looking for a nice, piggy-savvy family with whom to settle down; and in return, I'll be a wonderful companion. Please stop by to meet me soon; I can't wait to start my new life with you!"

As soon as he got home he impressed us by showing us how cute and smart he was.




Special thanks to Tom Grooms from Mix 107 (Cumulus DC) and Dave McCallister from Radio One Baltimore for giving me good references--we hope this will also cement good relations between the Humane Society and two major radio groups.

DIFFICULT PATIENT

I am not a fun patient to examine, or to massage. I still flinch, startle etc.

DAY 41

Saw five cop cars in or near the park and one woman being led away in cuffs.
Apparently the homeless people are actually paying attention to me. Now if I could get the attention of peeps with money. And a place to live....

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

I HATE IT WHEN THAT HAPPENS

It's so depressing when drag queens make fun of you. But I still think my ass looks better than theirs.

janedoe@seductive.com

ON THE BALL

Todays Powerball drawing may be a record one. I have no money for tickets. I have no money for gas. I had to borrow 20 dollars so I could be LESS overdrawn.

DAY 40

Wow, like the flood, 40 days and 40 nights. Or like Lent.

I SAILED MY SHIP OF SAFETY...

'til I sank it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUgwM1Ky228

THE ITP FACTOR

Linda Ellerbee used the term I.T.P. to refer to "indignity to person." Mammographies are an indignity to one's person and this was even before her mastectomy.

DAY 39

Waiting for my mammography but not worried--I am told I have great boobs.

HOW WILL I KNOW?

'TIS THE (SUNDAY) NIGHT AFTER THANKSGIVING

And what John Irving refers to as "conceivably the loneliest" night of the year.

SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT

Watched Cat on a Hot Tin Roof--the Deep South, surgery, ambulances, alcoholism, other drugs, homsexuality. Paul Newman has Elizabeth Taylor in a slip begging for sex. And shirtless Newman--yummy.

DAY 37

Have not started my Christmas card/gift list, that is usually finished Thanksgiving night ):

Saturday, November 24, 2012

WEEK

Getting colder, gas prices well under $4.00/gallon in most places around here.

SWEETNESS

A cute guy said to me "do you work in a bakery, 'cos you're a cutie pie." I don't normally get that--I am just grateful people don't beat me and my friends up and steal our money.

GHETTO BITCHES IN SPANDEX

A refers to the chicks who come out of Bukom as "ghetto bitches in Spandex." Some of them have buttocks twice as wide as my whole body. B is intrigued by this. As morally repulsed as I am by this I offered to send some his way. The guy may have saved my life, I owe him one. I don't want to charge him a fee, but should I charge the bitches? Is it fair to do this to him? Or to the bitches?

SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY

I generally try to support small business, including my own, and not just one day a year. But last year on SBS:

1. I had an unpleasant encounter with a small business owner and the camera crew trying to promote said event. Way to treat a longtime neighbourhood resident who tries to support you all year 'round.

2. Tryst had no Wifi on Saturdays, which I remembered AFTER I ordered my drink.

3. I got hassled by Romany and some homeless-looking person.

4. I ended up spending more time and money than I would have at Mac's, *$ etc.

This year the main small biz I tried to support was closed for the WHOLE WEEKEND. The other one was closed for good. I ended up buying a box of teabags and two cans of soup at Metro K Supermarket.

DAY 36

Five weeks ago today we were robbed. Two weeks ago I had two pigs instead of one.

Friday, November 23, 2012

HAGMAN DEAD

Larry Hagman died.

Three phases in my life:

1) I Dream of Jeannie and my childhood

2) Dallas, high school, undergraduate school, graduate school and Wilmington

3) The new Dallas, a new generation

A Christmas classic with which to start the generic winter holiday season: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgIwLeASnkw

For me "the winter holidays" start with Thanksgiving and end with Valentine's Day, Mardi Gras or Chinese New Year, whichever comes last.

From now until January second things will be weird.

THE MOST PROFOUND THING I'VE HEARD ALL DAY

G says "in some fucked up [sic] incestual way, we're all family."

THINGS FOR WHICH I AM THANKFUL

1) My mom and I still alive.

2) Pepsi and Peppy are still alive.

3) I have a place to live.

4) And in spite of everything I feel protected. Cherished even.

DAY 34

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

VANILLA SKY

Watched that this afternoon while emailing about Perpetua's death and the robbery.

DAY 30

They say when G-d closes a door he opens a window. Sometimes he opens the door again, even if for a little while. Sometimes he opens another door. Sometimes he opens a crawlspace. As I said yesterday, it is what it is.

Friday, November 16, 2012

It was a dull evening until E left her smartphone unattended and one of her co-workers posted "omg I just sharted again, some please help me. I have lumpy yoga pants."

It just gets weirder. The Mellow Mushroom is having drag queen bingo tomorrow night. With my luck they probably look/dress better than I do.

Monday, November 12, 2012

Veteran's Day.

Woke up in horrible pain this morning. The good thing about being a massage therapist is knowing what to do for it, the bad thing is not having anyone to massage you. BTW, aspirin really is the wonder drug that works wonders.

WORST HALLOWEEN EVER

That's what I was going to say. But I was pleasantly surprised. E feels bad about the assholes stealing my Mac's coupons so she sez she'll buy me a Mac. And apparently I have multiple men vying for my attention.

Today is All Saints' Day, a holy day of obligation. Actually got my ass into church.

DAY TWELVE

I thought this would end today, did not count on being a victim vs innocent bystander. I am debating whether or not to wear my princess costume--afraid I will not be able to run away or that someone will grab me by my skirt/sleeves: http://www.ordercostumes.com/mm5/graphics/00000001/CC00859REDFULL.jpg

Of the two guys who were with me during the robbery one says he still has trouble seeing out of one eye, he tells me the other may lose a tooth. This should not have happened to them -- they may have saved my life.

TWO OTHER THINGS I AM REMEMBERING

1) My father died eight years ago today
That week was a lot like this one--there were 30-40 MPH winds in Michigan, which blew down telephone wires. As a result, his twin sister did not find out about his death until days after it happened.

2) Nine years ago yesterday I was robbed: http://janedoesblog.blogspot.com/2003_10_01_archive.html

This is not usually a good time of year for me.

janedoe@seductive.com

BEST TWEET OF THE DAY

From www.twitter.com/birbigs : Hurricane Sandy bumps masturbation rate by 750%

It will be interesting to see how many babies named Sandy will be born nine months from now.

Today would be a good day for a 24-hour urine as I'm not supposed to leave home anyway.

My father could use every four-letter word in the English language and a couple others but he was funny about women and profanity. Men could curse all they wanted to as long as it wasn't directed at women and women were not allowed to curse, especially his daughter.

My mom said he would be horrified at the way my massage clients treated me. She said "he may have abused you but no one else was allowed to." I guess that's something.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, BABY!

Four years ago today I adopted "little" Perpetua from the Montgomery County shelter.

Ten years ago today the DC snipers killed their first victim. I remember that night. There was a report of a body found at the Giant parking lot in Leisure World. We didn't bother reporting it right away.

The Occupy DC people came to our city one year ago today. They have served as little more than human paperweights.

Eleven years later I heard planes flying low over my neighbourhood and couldn't help noticing. Low-flying planes have always made me nervous but now I think if we're going to be killed by them there's nothing to do about it.

One year to the day I adopted him I buried Puzzle's ashes. And watched the Green Mile. Both were surprisingly cathartic.

DAY

"Rabbi Yekel of Zans, who had the best diction in the world until a
Gentile stole his resonant underwear, dreamed three nights running
that if he would only journey to Vorki he would find a great treasure
there. Bidding his wife and children goodbye, he set out on a trip,
saying he would return in ten days. Two years later, he was found
wandering the Urals and emotionally involved with a panda. Cold and
starving, the Rev was taken back to his home, where he was revived
with steaming soup and flanken. Following that, he was given
something to eat. After dinner, he told this story: Three days out of
Zans, he was set upon by wild nomads. When they learned he was a
Jew, they forced him to alter all their sports jackets and take in their
trousers. As if this were not humiliation enough, they put sour cream
in his ears and sealed them with wax. Finally, the Rabbi escaped and
headed for the nearest town, winding up in the Urals instead, because
he was ashamed to ask directions.
After telling the story, the Rabbi rose and went into his bedroom
to sleep, and, behold, under his pillow was the treasure that he
originally sought. Ecstatic, he got down and thanked God. Three days
later, he was back wandering in the Urals again, this time in a rabbit
suit.
The above small masterpiece amply illustrates the absurdity of
mysticism. The Rabbi dreams three straight nights. The Five Books of
Moses subtracted from the Ten Commandments leaves five. Minus
the brothers Jacob and Esau leaves three. It was reasoning like this
that led Rabbi Yitzhok Ben Levi, the great Jewish mystic, to hit the
double at Aqueduct fifty-two days running and still wind up on relief."
