I really love this photo — despite the fact, looking at it now, it is clear I need to burn those pants.

That is me and Pumpkin walking through Austin to the Bat Bridge.

the moon fairy tale

December 15, 2014

I am bringing back The Moon Fairy Tale just because I really like it. Also it’s a really good break from trying to feng shui the fridge and closet, ahhh!

 

the moon

 

A king asked his young daughter what she would like for a present. And she said she loved the moon, she would like that.

And the king asked, How big do you think the moon is?

And she said, It is just the size of my thumbnail when I hold it up to the sky.

And the king asked, What do you think the moon is made of?

And she said, It is silver, that is why it shines in the night.

So the king had a silver smith make a silver moon the size of his daughter’s thumbnail and the king placed it on a silver chain and gave it to his daughter and she wore it around her neck and was happy.

But the king was afraid. What if she saw the moon in the sky?

So the king closed up all the palace windows and no one was allowed to see the night sky.

But the people grew unhappy. And his daughter grew unhappy. And she began wasting away because she could not see the night sky any more.

So one day the king allowed the windows to be opened again at night, but he was very afraid of his daughter seeing the moon.

And of course she did. But she did not seem unhappy.

And the king asked his daughter, Do you see the moon in the sky?

And she said, Of course.

And he said, Don’t you worry about how it got there when you have the moon on a chain?

And she said, No, it is like a new tooth. You can take the moon away, but another will grow back

 

 


That is the moon fairy tale. I heard the moon fairy tale when I was very young. It is probably in a book I was too little to remember. But I always remembered the story.

Also that photo was taken by my friend Mercedes. It reminded me of the moon fairy tale which is why you get to hear the moon fairy tale today.

Wednesdays are traditionally my day off.

You know what that means right?

New men in kilts photos yay!

I know, freaking gorgeous, right? Ahhh!

 


SO THERE I WAS completely minding my own business coming down off a 5 am work high trying to wear myself out enough to sleep —

[You don’t know 5 am work highs?  They’re what comes from pushing through midnight and 3 am and the desire to sleep and catching a second/third/fourth wind to keep working because you have something that needs to be finished before the alarm goes off for other people on some coast USA — only then you are done and it is 5 am and you can’t just go to sleep, you have defied the gods o’ sleep too long and they are pissed so now you have to wind down and no, there are no drugs involved, quit it…]

— When this hot kilt meme showed up on FB and I thought, you know, maybe hot kilt guys would be just the thing right now and also everything else has a hot this or that page there should be a hot kilt page around here somewhere.

 


THERE WERE NO HOT KILT PAGES ON FACEBOOK.

Whut?

There was some private group.

[What the hell do they do in a private group?  Okay wait, that might be scary, don’t answer that.]

There was an app. And it did not work.

Whut?

There was some page with like, 5 kilt photos.

Whut?

And no good hot kilt pages.

 


TRAVESTY!

So I made MEN IN KILTS.

 


ALSO HERE IS KIT HARRINGTON IN A KILT.

[You’re welcome.]

[I know.  It is not plaid.  Screw plaid!  It does not have to be plaid!  I am descended from Scots I can say that.  The real Scots might get a little excitable though.]

 


THAT IS THE STORY of how I came to be the mover and shaker behind the one and only acceptable hot guys in kilts page on FacebookMEN IN KILTS

I know, totally professional, right?

 


[Screw professional, life is short!  Okay maybe not so professional, but life IS short.  Also, we are talking kilts.  Yay!]

cry baby cry!

Word is [via Slate] Getty images just dropped the pay wall and is trying something new, embeds that link back to the original source. I see that news and think, cool, I can go link some of my Getty photos without the watermark. [See for even me to use Getty photos of me without the watermark, there was some sort of pay scheme going — which seems wrong but there you have it.]

I do a search. They come up, but not on Getty. On Zimio. Whut?

Here’s a Getty photo from the 25th Nicholl Fellowships Awards ceremony. Look how spiff we all look yay!

I love that photo but that’s not my favorite photo from that night. My favorite photo is not even a Getty photo it is an iPhone photo shot on the way to the awards when I hadn’t put my heels on yet and was stopping for a Diet Coke on the way. Yay!

[I had been off sugar, chocolate, sodas, coffee, bread and booze for two freaking weeks before the awards ceremony. Your face looks pretty for the camera if you knock all that crud off for a couple weeks — but you are crying hard for a soda. Cry baby cry!]
