  1. I've never understood why that garlic sauce is talked about so much. It's like margarine with some garlic powder and a bit of fresh garlic from what I remember. My recollection of some CH discussions is that it's more complicated than that--with various people suggesting it's got mayo or potato, etc. in it. I believe it's made with bread, oil and garlic. Sometimes their sauce is really intense and wonderfully garlic. Other days not so much. I like to take the leftover paste, swirl it into the houmous and eat it with corn chips for an overwhelmiing breath stink bomb. The dolmas from Zankou
  2. This is what we drank. Almendrado. Quite delicious. Thanks to Abby and Aaron for putting up with me and my crazy friend K. We dig drag your asses all over the armpit of downtown. But the bling was most worth it! Tacos from Tacos Tumbras were birria, carnitas, carne asada and cabeza. The cabeza and birria were outstanding. Fried anchovies with chile and bits of sweet onion (they're called charales) are available at Ongpin Chinese food stand. My favorites. Abby's Bling Heaven Santee Alley Two blocks crammed with everything you do and don't need. Hank's is at the Stillwell Hotel on
  3. I love Dan Savage - he and Susie Bright are the best advice experts ever. I knew a transgendered who used to go around asking girls for tampons and Pamprin. It was great to see on the look on their faces, especially since Stephanie was a big girl and the object of some some derision among the 'real women'. I used to make a big show of handing over the tampons so everyone could see. She loved it.
  4. Hmmmm, announcements? I wonder if the stationer near me does those. Would it be a red letter day?
  5. Yes, Diane Arbus felt the same way. According to her biography, she would often announce that she was having her period and enjoying the process to anyone who would listen. Me, I can't wait to be done and not be so earth bound.
  6. You know that was part of the Hell's Angels' initiation rites - going down on a woman while she was bleeding. How one 'earned' the red wings. Here's a fun link to many things menstrual: would you stop menstruating if you could? And another: Judy Chicago's Red Flag at MUM

    Four of my favorite words. I hate it when clicking doesn't work. Do I have to go rent Pillow Book again?
  8. Yes, and it will tell you the time - my kids programmed it to do that and it freaked me out. What I learn every day: No good deed goes unpunished.
  9. If you could meet and talk to one of your body parts, what would it be? What would it say?

    That is far more disturbing than I expected it to be. These people are absolute fucking lunatics. How can you say that? On the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Ivar there is a two story building that houses these elite. From ground level nothing is apparent: there is one nondescript door with a security code entrance. But the second floor does have windows, and from the club where I was working directly across the street, it looked like one of those ant farms you had as a kid. Those people were ALWAYS WORKING. On the phone. At computers. Organizing. Busy, busy, busy. I would leave my
  11. Pictures? I love scarabs. Neck pain be dammed, just wear it. (coming from a woman who would pile on big African beaded necklaces at a time - if a little is good more is better-my chiroprator was appalled) And please, sheets? Talk to my man. He makes me look like an amateur.
  12. I don't know if it's kindness Cathy - I mean, this kid is just sooo fucked up. What else could you possibly do? I mean, I've seen some shit down here but her throat is horrific. And she looks like she's 12. The drunks and the crackheads I could care less. But this one hurts.
  13. I love driving in NYC. Especially when traffic moves. The assholes in my town seem to buy $50,000 luxury cars equipped with sonic woofers, DVD players, 54"video screens, jacuzzis and rocket launchers. NOT ONE OF THEM HAS A GODDAM TURN INDICATOR. IS IT TOO FUCKING MUCH TO PUT DOWN THE CELL PHONE, TURN OFF THE TV, STOP PUTTING ON YOUR MAKEUP, READING YOUR EMAIL AND INDICATE TO ME WHICH DIRECTION YOU ARE GOING SO I CAN GET THE FUCK OUT OF YOUR WAY? I thank you.
  14. I'm a jewelry whore. Ebay is my enabler. I've sold my soul for many a pretty bauble. Most recent purchases include an elaborate Tibetan turquoise and coral necklace,and a pair of 4" chandelier style lakh earrings earrings from India. Over the years I've amassed a ridiculous amount of vintage beads, old rhinestones, Mexican silver, lots of American Indian turquoise. I have an unhealthy obsession for old garnets and Victorian funeral jewelry. I am also perversely fond of unwieldy hunks of Russian amber in silver settings, but I am trying to stablize this need. And I try to wear it all at once.
  15. There's been a young girl wandering the streets down here for the past week or so who's particulary distressing. She's very dirty, and has recently had her throat slashed in three broad lines across the front of her neck. She stopped me the other day to ask if I knew the way to the Twin Towers (euphemism for LA jail) and took off before I could really help her. She's attracted some notice because her throat wound, while superficial, is alarmingly red and scabby. A few of us have been trying to find her to get her some medical attention. I came across her today sleeping on a heavily traff

    by me when I reprinted the email, but it got deleted. I'm guessing that linking to the same info on another site is perfectly acceptable though. Ah well, I've been living under a fucking rock the past few days and just received the link. News travels fast it seems. Stone, I like your writing style. Scarlett is hot.

    Another amusing speculation bouncing around the airwaves: Rob Thomas and Tom Cruise http://www.jossip.com/gossip/tom-cruise/to...ce-20050629.php Hope for you yet Wilf.
  18. Wow, Dr. Buzzard! Are you into Kid Creole and the Coconuts as well? Such an incredible group of musicians and performers - Coati Mundi is an old friend, and one of the funniest people on stage I know. Cherchez la femme!

    I do fancy a shag, but I don't like my shagging fancy.

    Ah, smuggling raisins, how nice.
  21. "The best part of a party is getting dressed to go," she often said. My sentiments exactly.
  22. For whom 'never too rich or too thin' was a mantra. (Altho I always thought she needed to eat a big bowl of mashed potatoes.) God Bless Her.
