Lulu's back in town!


This is my view as I sit here laboring hour after hour after hour! (You believe that, don't you?) Well, okay, the laboring part may be exaggerated, but this is my view.

My friend L. is in town for a few days, visiting from the snowy wastelands of the north, where I cannot imagine living, being the summer, sunshine-loving baby that I am. She has a very serious job, requiring very serious clothes (for which she earns a pretty serious amount of $$$), & I don't think she'd want me to actually give her real name. So I'm christening her Lulu. Because I KNOW there's a Lulu inside - I'm privy to the information that she has a pierced belly button underneath those serious business clothes! I KNOW the Lulu in her wants out & wants more COLOR & more fun! I mean, this is the person who sends me pedicure accessories covered with skulls & crossbones wearing bows atop their pretty little skulls! Who bought me that little pink ducky with hearts to float in the tub, when I refused to spend the 2 bucks for it! The tissue paper she includes with gifts makes me as happy as the gifts! Yes, I admit it , I'm pretty easy to please - I was always a cheap date - but there's a lurking Lulu I intend to cajole into the open!

All of which puts me in this kind of mood!
