I'M HOT
THE SWEAT IS RUNNING DOWN MY BACK
THE BIRDS ARE SITTING OPEN BEAKED
THE HOT AIR MANAGES TO INVADE EVERY TINY CREVICE
AND THE WEEKEND IS SET TO BE HOTTER

We're supposed to get rain tomorrow. And the next day. I'd send it your way, but we need it...

Put on that pretty white dress and drink something tall, with lots of ice?

Luckily the Onion is fully air-conditioned. Kick back and enjoy a cool, refreshing beverage in the comfort of our climate controlled establishment.

Stay cool Kylie...

I saw the photo and my heart sunk. Reminded me of the Discovery Park fire. I realize I do look at life differently than most. Why Kylie? I almost just deleted this. Why Kylie?!!! Now that's just funny! Yes, it's true, I can make myself laugh.

Megan lives near me, so yes, it's true, we're expecting rain. It's actually supposed to start tonight, but it's after 2 am and I don't hear any damn rain. Oh, I just realized Megan is in Southern CA and I'm in Northern CA (about 600 miles apart!). She doesn't live near me. Who the hell am I thinking of? Too funny.

Megan's right. Wear white. You'll feel cooler. Oh, and make it a very lightweight, flowing cotton. Boobs always look good in that, especially after 4 kids!

When you're done prancing around town in your cotton, stop by the Wild Onion. Drinks are on me. Well...on Cece. Well...free.

XOXOXOXOXO ;)

Megan said...

Heya Suz! I should be asleep but I'm not. Waiting for the rain...

Suzanne said...

Megan, it's after 3 am. Why are we up???!!! I'm going to try to get some sleep in a few minutes. I have a very busy day tomorrow (whoops, today) and somehow have to fit in a shower so I look presentable for the doctor. Good Lord!!!

Rain. I hate when it rains on my feral kitties, but we need rain so much in Northern CA. There's already discussion about a drought. Frightening. How's it where you are? I haven't kept "abreast" because I'm too busy looking at my own!!! I swear to God honey, I never knew they were so attractive and "perky!!!" I have a whole new lease on life!

XO ;)

Megan said...

Perk 'em if you got 'em, honey!

(I'll be in the background, supporting things with my hands)

Megan said...

Oh, and I'm up because I'm watching 31 days of Oscar on Turner Classic Movies.

I can't stop watching!!!

kylie said...

suze,
i posted that picture because it is fire weather here. there are no fires but the feeling in the air is just right for them.
i only caught flashes of news but if i'm right Victoria (thats kooka's part of the country) is on high alert
sorry it distressed you

You're too funny. I have to go to bed, but have a great story. I saw a real Oscar. Actually a whole slew of them. When we lived in West Hollywood we had a electrical outage one evening and made friends with a guy down the street. He envited us into his gorgeous home and there they all were. Wow! He's a famous costume designer and had a ton of them!!! They're actually quite big and heavy. Oh, and pretty!!! I can actually say I got to touch Oscar!

By the way, I'm looking for a new bra. You don't have to support me with your hands! You can let go now. I should be fine. Of course I knew that wasn't the direction you were going, but I couldn't help myself. A girl's just gotta have fun. Okay baby, it's nite nite time for Bonzo. Wish me luck waking up on time. Don't you need some sleep too?

XO

Leah said...

Megan, oh how I feel you on this one...perky? If by perky you mean something else entirely, then mine are perky.

Queen Goob said...

Duct tape makes mine perky - and it's cheap, too.

Sorry it's so excruciatingly hot there. I agree with the flowy white dress, bare feet, no undergarments, and a tall, cool glass of....heck, a tall, cool glass of anything!
!

Suzanne said...

I can't stay long because I just wrote a whole shitload over on my blog about my experience at the doctor's today and still have chores to do around this joint. God I need an assistant. I also need a new forehead.

Kylie my dear, not to worry. I know you would never cause me stress purposely. It's amazing how similar that photo is to the one in the Sacramento Bee. Good luck with your fire season. I know how awful it can be. We're actually very worried here because we've had so little rain. It's raining today, but honestly, it's just a drop in the bucket. We'll see what happens over the next month or so. Love you darling. Will visit soon. XO

Leah and Megan...explain. It went right over my head. Help me please!!!

Queenie...what happens when you have to remove it? That's gotta hurt. Is perky worth that much pain? And yes, I agree about white, flowing, and very little under the white and flowing! You're a very smart woman. Oh, you could also turn on the AC! ;)

I'd love to stay for hours but gotta go. God I hate housework.

XO to all

Leah said...

Well, I can't speak for Megan, but I know I've got those Breast-Fed-a-Wee-One-for-a-Gazillion-Years-and-I've-got-the-sag-to-prove-it breasts.

Suzanne said...

Okay...now I understand. Basically you need and Extreme Makeover! Do you want me to write
in?

Okay, here are some suggestions for the short term. Wear a shirt two sizes too small. It'll hold your boobs in any position you place them. However, you may have trouble breathing. Suggestion #2, buy a really beautiful, big purse/tote bag and carry it in front of you. People will notice the tote, not your sagging boobs. #3, don't leave the house. Hell, don't even get out of bed!!! Okay, if these don't work I'll share my next three!

Love you darling. Sorry about what happened over at RC's. I hope you're okay and forgive me. I love you very much and I know you know that. "She" has an amazing story you know. If RC doen't run with it I will. Maybe you should. You could tell it so beautifully and reach so many women. It's a story that needs to be told and she's ready. She just had to find her voice and her footing. Honey have you ever considered doing some freelance work? You tell a beautiful story and like I told RC, life is full of remarkable stories that need telling. Let me know what you think. You have my email if you want to write it there. I'm very serious.

I love you,
XO

Megan said...

Yep. That's where I was going with that!

Suzanne said...

Megan. You still up?!

Megan said...

Sure! But not for long. Two hour commute home today thanks to the rain. I'm exhausted.

But I'm wearing a very strong bra! Which will soon be off, thank goodness...

Mo said...

Wish we could send you some of our rain to put the fire out.

reyjr said...

Hello guys! I gave you an Honest Scrap award. Please come by and claim it from my blog! :D

http://reyjr.blogspot.com/2009/02/honest-scrap-blog-award.html

Cece said...

YEAH an Award! I'll be by after work to claim it!!!!

Thanks. We all appreciate it.

I would like to thank the writers and producers of the show. Especially the writers, because without them, this award would not have been possible. And I would like to Thank Reyjr for nominating and then choosing as the winners of this award. And I would like to thank myself for having the courage and the balls to allow all of you crazy people into my life. You all enrich it imensly.

Suzanne,
Did I spell imensly right?

Suzanne said...

No honey. Your spelling sucks. Jeasus Christ. I spell like crap and have absolutely no clue about grammar, but when it's wrong I'm like the Supreme Court Justice who gave an opinion about porn, "I know it when I see it."

Correct spelling...immensely. Like Maxwell Smart said, "You were that close!"

*Megan yanks Cece off stage with cane. Blottie walks past and gives Miss C a good swift kick in the ass before stepping up to mic. Flicks it with middle finger, adjusts green dress and fixes cereal box." "Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for putting up with that smart ass little bitch. How dare she call us crazy. *Finally frees self of arm restraints.* Oh, it's so good to be out of the asylum, excuse me, luxury hotel, to address you before I have to get my meds. Okay, let's take this time to pray. Oh right, I'm not religious. Okay, let's take this time to collect a beautiful award from a new and dear friend Reyjr. Why? Because we damn well deserve it!!!" *Pauses to take bite of humble pie. Flicks mic. "This damn thing still on?"*

Reyjr, thanks. We really are grateful and you're so welcome here. If you want to post just stop by Cece's email (aka the Troll at the Gate) and ask for permission. She's so easy. She's from Arkansas.

XO

P.S. Cece, I knew that last one would kill you. Finally...I win!!!







I won. Right?

Suzanne said...

Leah,

Thanks. I love you. No need to worry. Bygones. And thanks for explaining. Makes a whole hell of a lot of sense now. If I have to write and submit this thing, I will because it's that important. But I'll need and editor. I write like shit honey. And you know what, I honestly think facing it is half the battle. I don't think you have. When I think about what Bindi's done I'm in absolute awe. It's fucking insane. I can't imagine having that much courage. Honestly, I can't. I'm a sissy in comparison and that is the honest to God truth. I don't know how women get through it baby. I've never had to deal with it and the thought just breaks my heart.

I love you. I'm glad you survived. I'm so grateful you're my dear friend. No matter what, we will always remain dear friends. I believe that with all my heart.

Just remember that even if I get pissy once in a while, I still love you. That will never change. I'm just really bitchy every once in a while and get my feathers up. Just work with me sweetie.

XO

Leah said...

I think everybody has to face things in their own way.

Megan said...

Agreed.

Suzanne said...

Agreed.
