Live, Love, Laugh, Fuck, Suck



(Fuji X100S)


CS will have me draining my savings soon. He keeps sending me to Facebook user groups whose members specialize in adjusting the settings of Fuji cameras, of which I own two, to accomplish varying degrees of film stock simulation, and to varying success. The catch is, of course, that the newer cameras offer more options and capabilities. This is always the case. There is no way to defeat the capitalist impulse to purchase. It is more innate than procreation. In point of very scientific fact, procreation can be most easily understood as an extension of the impulse to possess. Researchers have recently isolated the newly named Amazon Prime Gene Sequence. It is not considered an aberration or a disorder. There are some quasi-religious treatments and conversion camps, though these rely on strictly negative reinforcement and produce results that can not be considered entirely therapeutic. People born with, or who have later purchased, this specific gene sequence can sometimes live perfectly normal lives. They are walking everywhere undetected among us with their shameful natural flesh-tone secrets.

You can see it in their eyes, once you know what to look for. It is that faraway focus on what can best be described as a broken set of determinations.

  1. Hi Handsome.

    :)


    Sundays are remarkable days for finding free trinkets on the side of the road - in all the bougie neighborhoods. I'm part Pirate you know - and my grandmother on my Pop's side come from Gypsies. Hungarians.

    Today! I picked up several custom made lampshades, and a real antique - in good condition oak fireman's chair - WITH the name plate still attached. They are v. v. comfortable because the hold your ass just right due to the curvy planing the maker did. Plus they have rounded arms and oak is so strong. Probably 1910-20 or so.

    Of course I clean everything when I get home and good. This one antique house on Main St. has been putting stuff out - family must be getting ready to sell - so every Sunday there is a plethora of items to pick from:

    Free.

    There was a bed -Oh if I had a truck. It was probably 1920's all carved with 3d flowers and leaves and vines. Headboard, footboard - even the big heavy wide railings were carved.

    Painted or washed with any color of choice and that thing would be perfect. Very feminine - lovely for a little girls room OR I would have definitely used it in a grown up bedroom.

    Alas, I don't have a truck. Oh well. I hope it went to a good new home.

    Yesterday! I purchased an adorbs black skirt with a ruffled hem at the Thrifty Shop. It was a white tag so I got it for half price - it was 2.50. It will be smashing I'm certain. Wearable year round.

    I have not revealed this to the Readership but I have entered the workforce, again.

    Sooooooo... I need some dazzling new outfits. Well, I really don't need to dazzle but what a super excuse for an update. And a little pizzaz is always an uplift to the spirits.

    I mean, right?

    I don't have Amazon disease - others for sure -diseases I mean - oh nothing that you need to mask up for or anything.

    How's the fires? I haven't looked lately. I hope you are feeling maybe somewhat - better?

    About the whereabouts and severity of said Terrible Occurrences.

    And okay to whatever you said.

    I guess?

    I'm not ever really entirely sure or even remotely, sure, truth be told.

    But that's the fun of it sometimes. Innit.

    Happy Holy Day, Q.
