Dear goddam princess slambook

What’s happening now? It’s Juneuary, but more June than January at the moment. I am feeling pretty mellow.

I did hit kind of a surprising rake in the grass yesterday. I had some free-floating anxiety and ended up taking a personal day. I felt better once I knocked some stuff off my list then relaxed.

I guess it wasn’t totally free-floating though. I suspected it was fallout from court. I’ve lost twenty-five pounds in the past year. I guess I could lose a little more, but EH. Not really a priority.

The girls are looking forward to summer. Franny’s going to be gone for a month out of the gate. I’m hoping she can use some of that time to talk with her dad some and just have a normal, non-overladen-with-yuk-and-subtext-and-angst times.

I don’t know if I mentioned I’m going to the Twin Peaks fest with my sister this summer. I bought a chevron-patterned shirt to wear. I’m getting hyped up about it around myah. Franny and I went to a Kyle MacLachlan Q&A session that was part of him receiving an achievement award, which was followed by a screening of the Twin Peaks pilot. It was so awesome to watch her watching him. That sounds weird, doesn’t it?

We decided we’re having a MacLachlanfest this summer. The Hidden is going on the list (Mr. MacLachlan said: “It’s a good rental.”), for sure, The Flintstones, and maybe some selected eps of Sex and the City. I think it’s going to be THE MOST AMAZING SUMMER EVER.

Here are some jerks I live with:

    I have wanted to go to Twin Peaks festival for years now! It’s in Snoqualmie, eh? Will you be staying at the fancy hotel where it was filmed up there?

    MacLachlan in Blue Velvet is purtygood, too.

  7. iasshole says:

    Yeah, I’m going for fancy, even though it’s remodeled etc etc. I looked at the smaller motels there and I just can’t do it. I love staying in hotels too much. I have to go in style.

    I’m thinking about BV. It would just scare the pudding out of the little one, and I’m not sure if the big one is ready for that. I’m okay with sex in movies, but the sexual violence is another thing. I told her she can see Fire Walk with Me when she’s 30, which is our fun arbitrary age for when she can do grown up things. However I can watch it alone!

    My god. Those girls. What great energy.

  9. A says:

    Go fancy! Go all out. I always splurge on hotels to feed my inner Eloise.

    I rented Blue Velvet when I was 14 on an art house film binge and my poor little (11) sister watched it with me because it was on, I guess. To this day she says it scarred her. To this day Dennis Hopper sucking on oxygen and chewing on a blue velvet bathrobe makes me laugh so hard.

  10. A says:

    OK, last thing. Have you seen the book, “Full of Secrets: Critical Approaches to Twin Peaks”? I’m sure Seattle Library has it.

  11. iasshole says:

    Oooh no, that sounds fun. Twin Peaks is way more fun now that the internet has happened. Last time I watched it, it was pre-graphical web. Thanks!

    I want to marry that video, I love it so much. Those girls are wonderful.
