Liz Your Best Life

"A free-form jazz exploration in front of a festival crowd"

I think Lena Dunham is trolling us. She’s choosing objectively ugly clothes to wear to awards shows to prove something — for the punchline, I believe. Perhaps a variation on, “I can’t tell if I’m kidding anymore,” or an ”I dare you to take me seriously” power play, which I get because I almost put that on a tie dye business card in 2012.

But the thing is this look from Giambattista Valli costs more than I made all year so can that be a troll move? Or is a rich person trolling a flat circle in which the troll  inevitably trolls oneself?

And yes, Lena Duham-based jokes are also a self-troll, I get it, and the largest joke of this YET is that I truly enjoyed Girls more than I enjoyed trying to watch Game of Thrones, but still. I call it like I see it. This is the Internet.

I am writing a thing about Jesus’ disciples getting mind-wiped by a spiteful Jesus, and M.J. Seidlinger put it up for his “What are you working on right now?” month.

i like this: “I won’t describe the contents of the book because I’m longing for a day when all books contain a uniform meaninglessness and exact likeness of symbols”  (i took this out of context cuz i like the way it sounds out of context; also cuz right above this daniel describes the book. lol. seems extra funny back to back.)

I wish I had an imagination.

The alternate punchline there, of course, is that even a very nice pair of Cole Haan driving loafers is cheaper than a pair of Birks.

Freedom isn’t free.

I just ordered a pair of loafers AND NOT a pair of birkenstock clogs to wear in the clinic and to cover my foot tat. Is this what Ben and Jerry felt when they joined the Unilever family? Pride, a little sadness? Excitement at the business casual possibilities?

I guess this is growing up.

The day after Stevie got spayed she was insane. She had been under sedation for a good 24 hours and when she came to her body was screaming. She tore around the house. She peed on an IKEA fold out bed. She shredded an old pillow case (above). At the end of the night that next day I was really tired and Dan was at a NIN concert and Stevie wouldn’t let up, and I took this picture.
Elaine’s face in it is everything. Just appealing to me, pleading with me, “are you here too? Are you seeing this creature? Will it ever end? What is life?”
It has ended, Stevie has chilled out enormously, but Elaine’s face still remains. Haunting us. Reminding us of what life can be when it wants to test us, knowing we are in the middle of a storm.
