Daily Prompt: My Dinner With…Frankenstein’s Monster

Daily Prompt: It Builds Character

Tell us about a favorite character from film, theater, or literature, with whom you’d like to have a heart-to-heart. What would you talk about?
My favorite character would be the monster from Frankenstein.  I’d love to sit and have a cup of tea (no fireplace please) with him and ask him how it feels to be put together from so many other sources.  Does he feel like a walking compilation of human beings, or does he feel complete, as one person would feel? 
I would tell him that I’m sorry about society’s “norms” and how they make him an outcast, and have turned his kind heart to stone by ostracizing him.  Then we could watch “Beauty And The Beast” – the Jean Cocteau one that I love.  I hope he doesn’t consider me a snob – I’ll have the Disney version handy!Image
Beyond that, I would hope he would tell me of his adventures, of the friends he met and of the relations and loves of Victor that he felt implored to destroy.  I’d ask him what he thought his mate would have been like, and if he thought he’d ever be accepted by those who don’t look like him.  
It would be a fabulous conversation!


Are You A Good Drunk or a Bad Drunk?


This explains, well, everything about weepy drunks, happy drunks,  stupid asses who get drunk and become yet more obnoxious. 

I think I’m kind of an awesome drinker.  To start with, give me two drinks and I am flying.  I’m usually just less shy, slightly more physical and happy. 

What kinda drunk are you? Yeah yeah I know you’re not a drunk. What kind of drinker are you?

Little Asthma Annie

I have just rushed my daughter off to school, and have returned to try to finally write a little bit. Have you even noticed I was gone???

Bronchitis blended with Asthma is what I have and have been suffering with for the past week. I believe assitis is the technical term. The adorable doctor at the local strip mall doc joint told me that I must have prednisone. I despise prednisone. But I was very worried that I was once again going to have pneumonia, and I definitely hate that more, so I decided to try it. Do you know that it actually WORKS??? Holy moly. Glad to be done with it, but really grateful for its existence.



My sister (remember the StormDoor Kicker?) took us all out to lunch and to a matinee of Annie on Broadway last week. Two and a half hours at a musical in the balcony. I was prepared for torture. Now, please understand that I was sick as a dog, feverish (yet not contagious per the cute doctor) and cranky. But we got to the city, and I managed to hone my beacon of bitchiness soley on my husband, who deserved it all heartily, and managed to spare my sister and daughter. We went to the Olive Garden, because that’s where you go in New York City where you can get anything on earth (and trust me, it was GREAT somehow – in no small part thanks to our server named Angela who went above and beyond and I’d adopt her if I could). Then onto the theater, where I was so pleasantly surprised at how not-scared I was of being in the balcony plus doubly shocked that the seats were great. And finally, the play was amazing. No, seriously. Amazing. It was creepy, funny, dramatic and kid ruled. My fever broke during the first act, and two and a half hours just flew by in a flash.

Since then, I’ve been taking care of myself and trying to get well. So far, so good.

How are all of you doing???? I missed you!!!


We’re Bracing For Sandy, That Bitch!


If you click on the above, you’ll see all kinds of dopey people walking the boardwalk of Long Beach while waves are crashing and bashing what’s left of the shore.

Dennis Rutowizz, of Babylon Village, takes in the

I’m a bit further inland, thankfully, but I’m a little scared.  I admit.  I don’t like the thought of elderly people on their own in my neighborhood, or of homeless animals and people around the state.  I dread losing electricity, or having some serious damage to our home.  But I’m glad Kiddo’s school is closed and that the husband doesn’t work tonight so we can be together and play games or watch movies if the power stays on.

These ARE the good old days!  Stay safe, and I hope to be able to check in with you all soon!
