I am sitting here answering phones at the front desk of a governmental entity working for a republican governor in a city I know nothing about but I’m happy. Damn, go figure. So much has happened in two years yet things are still, for the most part, the same. More to come as I develop.

This is my first time writing on this blog in over two years and I can’t believe I’m back!!!

The adventure that is my life has been one rip-roaring surprise after another, the very nature of how this has all come about is perfectly insane and the hits keep on coming…There is something beautifully masterfull and well planned here one of the Universes design, but I’m digging it and keeping the faith, causr right now…It’s ALL Good!

its hard to write

At the tail end of a beautiful summers night of birthday celebrating, A friend was ruminating on how similar she looks to her mother.  She was enjoying a cigarette while paging through her digital and realized how much she looks like her mother who had died when she was young.  It made her cry.


In the same moment a young gentleman walked by and asked her– not so politely to give him her camera and her purse.  Being the fiery-sprite-like pixie that she is she told him to fuck off and screw himself. 

He did not oblige.

Instead he and a friend heaved upon her, one brandishing a pistol.  He grabbed her wrist, from which the apparatus was hanging and pounded the back of her head with the butt of his gun, he was still pulling at her wrist when the gun went off and shot clean through her thigh. She had been shot.  The men ran and got away with the camera and the purse.

Later that night the work on patching her up had gone on without incident.  However, her belly had risen to a height that she had never seen beforeThe doctors said that the trauma had caused her belly to fill with liquid- A liter and a half worth of liquid.  Traumas sometimes, somehow highlights other things that happen in the body that have gone on ignored.


It seems as though my vibrant, young friend has Cancer.  Her ovaries were removed that night and she was quickly given a list of people and places to go.


My friend has Cancer.


One night of trivial violence has turned into a struggle for life.  No children to be had, no work, no insurance, and a diagnosis that has rendered her helpless, depressed, alone, lost and angry.  The diagnosis is quite new and she is still reeling.  We found out last week that the Cancer has spread to part of her colon. 

Because she was a Hostess at a hip Restaurant downtown, she is rendered Insurance-LESS, but she knows many people in the industry and Sunday night 10/05/08 Bon V had a fundraiser The Bears had made a bet, If they won the game they would show up.  It was a great night.  Kelly Arrived fashionably late and as chic as ever and the crowd roared, they pulled her there and here and everywhere.  She didnt drink, I grabbed her and said hey, long time no see, pretty girl! Thats how I always greet her.  She smiled with that Im a rock star look on her face with a tinge of humiliation and a hint

 of pride and a smidge of her usual caustically cynical aloofness, Thanks, doll.


A friend has Cancer.


Its crazy.  And Im still reeling, and I am most certain so is she.


At the end of the night there were three $5000.00 holistic packages for raffle.  By the end of the FIRST hour they had all been purchased for her and Urlacher showed up and some of the other players I dont know did as well and donated generously, I went home early cause I had an interview.


Kelly Mulqueeny started Chemo-Therapy last week.



If you would like to donate ANYTHING to her fund (that they are still in the process of setting up and establishing) please contact me at modstar30@hotmail.com and I will connect you to the proper folks!  Thanks for your time.


Am at work so cannot write fully about this but will in a later blog.

It’s one of those days. That beautiful crisp autumnal reach of brilliant light that climb around hearty stalks of slowly drying birch and oaks, where leaves are grasping for their last breath of vibrant green— where the rich reds, deep ochre’s breach the fading bud and bloom into a new phase of life. The day is quiet. It is serene. Heady.

I woke up this morning invaded by a nasty taste in my mouth- a smokers’ hangover, one that could keep most good women down. Last night my mind raced. It jumped from one activity to the next.

Write down goals for the distant future
Write down goals for the not-so-distant future
Start crocheting a new scarf
Write down your visioning dreams
Do Morning Pages-scratch that wait till the am.
Don’t miss Two and a Half Men
Start your psychic Journal
Try to meditate for the 40th time tonight
Have another cigarette
Masturbate-scratch that, may take too much time
Stare into the blackness for about an hour or so.
Watch In Bruges for the 4th time tonight.

When was it said that you should under-compensate for your skills to get a job? I finished a gig that was meant to last 2-3 weeks. I was supposed to move some files to a different department, reorganize them and label them-in heels no less. I was told that it was an assignment that called for my strong organizational skills and Microsoft Applications experience, I was prepared to be behind a desk for the whole of the day. Instead, I wore my best shoes, fabulous and high to do hardcore labor and moving equipment and files. Nice.

I had believed this assignment to be a way to keep me busy while my original contact was at home gathering all of her soggy insurance documentation from a flooded basement in a waterlogged suburb that was hit by our 72 hour rainstorm. Little had I known- this reorganization project WAS the 2-3 week assignment.

Terribly excited about the prospect of guaranteed income (rent) for the next 2 weeks (at least) I jumped the gun by taking a feigned leave of absence from the hideously tragic telemarketing job that I had held for 5 weeks. I had high hopes to move onward and upward from the temp assignment at the Wrigley Building. Anything was better than aggravating already annoyed prospects, some of which had lost jobs, down sized their possessions and really wasn’t in the market for any jerk trying to trade her wares for their hard earned cash. Instead I had given them an unofficial leave of absence and purchased 3 professional outfits to get ready for the weeks ahead of me.

I arrived at 8:30. My contact had changed he pointed out the work that needed to be done. 26 tall, deep and long vertical files had to be transferred, reorganized and labeled. Needless to say I was done before lunch. My assignment was officially and unceremoniously over. A retarded ape may have taken about 2-3 weeks to finish the job. I am no retarded ape.
Thank god for my experience with the mundane, repetitive, mindless shizah I had been blessed with in the past. Now I know what it was ALL for.

The Universe has got me cradled in her heaving bosom!

Well at least I had an interview set up for the following day. But when I woke up with that awful smoking exhaustion, there was an ominous voice mail message beeping at me from my employment agency, it lay in wait on my cell phone as I tried to get past the sun in my eyes and the chill on the toilet seat.

The company had hired from within. Your interview has been cancelled. Your time spent all weekend positive visioning, meditating, manifesting, studying and rehearsing in fron of the mirror has paid off! Be hold! Preparation for No one. Its like waiting on a blind date that never comes. Beautiful!

Oh, I am not ungrateful, just disgruntled. A broke, disgruntled, unemployed, apparently unemployable, ex-telemarketer who did her job too well to keep it going long enough to earn money for toothpaste and toilet paper. Ah, such is life, I suppose.

Well, at least I have therapy.

grossly addicted…
