Porcine Cosmetology

What a fucking incomprehensible, heartbreaking, life-ruining mess. And of course, our Bushie government made it far worse by failing to respond until TODAY. Jesus.

Watching the news is just way too depressing...this post, by a New Orleans blogger I adore, had me close to tears. This disaster is probably going to end up being worse than 9/11 on many levels.

Because of this stultifying abundance of misery, I wanted to give y'all a couple of reminders that life ain't all shit all the time. Let's put some lipstick on this pig, wanna?

For one, my friends Nina and David are getting married tomorrow. In addition to being wonderful, kind, and hilarious people, they are both frighteningly brilliant. They love each other very much, and very well. The world will be a better place with their offspring running around in it. So congratulations to them.

For two...some of you might remember this. (If not, read it, or else the rest of this will make no sense to you.) Well, the Narcophonic team did it. The Depp guitar is in Depp's hands. I've never doubted that those guys would be a major stars, and now they're one step closer. Amazing.

We can't block out what's happened in Katrina's wake. We can do our bit to help, and we can keep moving forward. (And of course, we can ELECT A FUCKING DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT NEXT TIME...)

Now if you'll excuse me, there's an extra-dirty Sapphire martini with my name on it waiting downtown. Enjoy the end of your summer, campers.

Have a great holiday weekend. I'm joining you in with a vodka and cranberry in my hand at this very moment.
See you next week, Helen the Felon!

helen,

i too am devestated. even more so after reading your friends post. specifically because i shuddered in horror when realizing that they left their cat behind. as an animal lover and activist, and the owner of 2 cats & 2 dogs, i haven't even considered how many pets have been left to die until now. of course, i understand that everyone's primary concern is getting people out safe & healthy, as it shoud be. but now i consider the animals as well.

i think i am going to go and have a good cry now.
