"i am the only human being to have been created with this, single, unique and precise genetic make-up, in this specific place and time in which we find ourselves. i'm special. no one sees the world quite like I do. i have a role to fill. fill yours" - alexander edam.

the money man's mistress

dear money man,

this city's sidewalks
are littered
with condoms.
and yet you,
you spiff your shoes
to walk
to work.

still, my tits are swollen
with unwanted milk.
i lie in the tub
all day.
i ash
in my hair.

you treated my love
like a brothel.

and i treated your lust
like love.

oh money man!
how foolish we've been!

as foolish
as your pennies on my nightstand.

woman is a devil

woman is a devil,
that's what i've been told.
she'll take all your money,
then she'll spend all your gold.

lessons learned

and as a side note to the post below, this alcohol influenced conversation took place last night:

boy: sorry i was an asshole
girl: you aren't an asshole
boy: but i acted like an asshole
girl: yes, and i was an awful bitch

perhaps, in addition to avoiding troubled assholes, i should work on not having to make the above apology again?

mmmm, no, never mind. that's hard.

i have

a rather humorous addiction to troubled assholes.

no more.

a lot

of really bitchin things are happening right now.

i'm still working on my furniture refinishing:

see that sunshine at

but i've also started sewing and fixing up vintage clothing, shoes, and more; you can see that hoopla at

and the best news out of all these bitchen things is that i am officially moving to seattle in march where i will work on opening a little store (most likely called the gypsy itch) to sell all sorts of fun vintage stuff.

i would just like to thank all of you lovely people who have supported me every time i change the course of my life drastically (which seems to be every other tuesday and every time it rains.)

i can honestly say that i feel like i'm on to something with this nonsense. and that i am ridiculously and peculiarly happy these days.

from the girl who spent all her money on shoes to the one that paints all day in her long johns, you have loved me.

i think i'm really on to a "me" that fits.

peace and love,

dear 2009,

you were mad.

you brought me champagne for breakfast and left me thirsty in a way i still can't comprehend.

you taught me to love every freckle on my body as a beautiful boy loved them in a summer of brown skin.

you brought me campfires where i danced in circles, barefoot and tipsy and wild, wearing war paint made of mud and a daisy headdress.

you showed me that jealousy tastes a lot like cheap whiskey and a little like some cheap girl's perfume.

you showed me that strength tastes a lot like jameson and looks a little like a cheap zombie film.

you brought me gold sparkly sweaters, records, giant chalkboards, owl sculptors, and vintage sewing machines.

you taught me to be more capricious, more insane, more passionate and loud and loving.

2009 you threw me for a whirl but i...

i became the kind of woman who enjoys being dizzy.

thank you very much 2009.

lord am i glad you are over!

peace and love,

your mandalynn
