Monday Judgements and Warnings

It's okay if you want to be the Galactic Leader of the PEOPLE WHO THINK SOY MILK WILL SOLVE ALL THE ILLS IN THE KNOWN AND UNKNOWN UNIVERSE but could you be so kind as to finish your dissertation over there in the cubicle where the broken chairs are?

Ever sort of fondly,

Sometimes, just for the fun of it, we make ourselves remember when we had to haul everything to the shit hole laundromat and we feel despair and then we gaze upon our gorgeous Mrs. Washer and Mr. Dryer and we joke about doing an entire load DEDICATED TO ONLY UNDERWEAR and we sip champagne and talk about how handsome the font is on the Cold/Cold, Cold/Warm, Warm/Hot, Cold/Hot, Hot/Hot combinations and then we take off our shoes, rip off our clothes and run through the streets screaming:

Dear Cupcake,

I have a Glamour Do/Don't question for you. What explains the phenomenon of men who wear braided pigtails? Are they somehow unable to see themselves in the mirror or have they just been watching too many reruns of Little House On the Prairie? Any insight you provide would be mighty helpful.

Monday Judgements and Warnings

I'm not a religious person but JUST SAY I'M TOTALLY WRONG and when I die I'm going to be loaded onto a bus with the destination: Heaven---Possibles and then be corralled into a pen with other well-meaning worriers where I will wait until my name is called at which time I will be paraded in front of the Big Boss and asked a series of questions about HOW I managed to talk my best friend into forging my father's signature in order to ditch 80% of 7th grade and WHY I chose to NOT pay so many parking tickets and WHAT I was thinking when I lied to my neighbor about my elderly dog peeing on her front lawn and WHEN was I going to admit that I adored Kenny Loggins to my closest confidants and, frankly, I will not know what to say other than I did the best I could, I avoided playing Farmville on Facebook and AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY I assisted a wayward senior citizen.

My fear is that all of this will be overlooked HOWEVER the focus will be on the fact that I betrayed my code of ethics by day after day after day using those hideous emoticon smiley faces against my better judgement and BECAUSE OF THIS, I anticipate, I will never be forgiven.

I bought some gladiolas yesterday that look so much like Liza Minnelli in their vase it makes me want to wear false eyelashes and buy a bunch of clothing that drapes FROM my body as opposed to clings TO it.

"Look! They're gonna sing The Man That Got Away next," I scream to Mister Cupcake, all caught up in the Razz-Ma-Tazz.

Cooper Being Josh Brolin in No Country For Old Men

"I got into uh boat load uh trouble on the set because I constantly mistook Javier Bardim for Nancy Kulp from The Beverly Hillbillies when I saw him from the back," he says, looking sheepish.

Dear Cupcake,

My husband and I were recently involved in a small neighborhood skirmish that involved a disagreement over Ken Burns's ancestry. Some of us argued that he is the great-great-great grandson of the cherry cheeked gnome in that odd 70's All-Wood-Cast Christmas classic Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer and others never wavered from their belief that Ken is a direct descendant of the miniature faced Thomas the Tank Engine villagers while a renegade few disparaged the views of the rest of us and just kept yelling HE'S A WHO FROM WHOVILLE, YOU'RE A COMPLETE MORON IF YOU DON'T SEE THAT. Can you weigh in here and tell us who is right?

Monday Judgements and Warnings

...and the Buddha, after sitting cross-legged under the Bodhi Tree for a FREAKING LONG TIME, opened his eyes and looked out upon the vast universe and realized that BECAUSE HE HAD THE COURAGE TO SIT WITH All OF IT--ALL OF WHAT HUMANS ENDURE AND EXPERIENCE---he had created PRACTICALLY enough room in his heart to hold the world entire---the sun and the moon and the sky and the stars and the grief and the joy and the confusion and the passion and the doubt and the way your seat belt sometimes gets caught when you try to lean forward and the trees and the children and the elderly and every emotion that humans, as a species, encounter and then he stood up, complained about his knees only briefly and AT LAST spoke to his devotees:

Tuesday Expert Advice

Dear Cupcake,

There have been moments in my life when I have entertained the idea of becoming a professional chef, HOWEVER, I have a relatively small forehead and I do not think I could endure The Awful Effed Up Freak Hat that chefs are forced to wear so I was wondering if you know---do ALL chefs have to wear the white trashcan hat or are there alternatives such as an elegant scarf or an understated visor?

Monday Judgements and Warnings

I was recently the victim of a Small Talk Sniper Attack in the check out line of Albertsons and I am not going to give you ALL the upsetting details because I don't want to ruin the rest of your year but BE ADVISED that, although I survived, the female perpetrator is still on the loose and was last spotted at a Rite-Aid paralyzing an older male by describing what her bathroom curtains look like.

This woman SWOOPS IN like a condor. Initially you might think OH LOOK IT'S A THING OF UNUSUAL WONDER I DON'T KNOW IF I SHOULD BE AWESTRUCK OR FRIGHTENED. This is part of her Confusion Ambush Tactic. Do not engage with her.

This woman IS VERY VERY TAN. She could be in her 20s or she could be in her 80s---the condition of her skin has made it impossible to pinpoint her age.

This woman has a mouth the size of that GIANT barn-garage they keep the Space Shuttle in when it is not in flight. If you engage in conversation with her YOU ARE IN DANGER.

Helmets do not help.

Although the 4th of July has primarily represented exploding hands and runaway dogs to me, I must admit that there are moments---while the barbecue is BLAZING and the neighbors are BINGE drinking and we're all sitting around the FIRE pit arguing about why our fore fathers wore those homely white wigs---that I am able to stop, take a moment and think about (and I mean REALLY think about) what sacrifices have been made and what it would all be like without what we know are some of The Most enduring and life-saving elements of our existence:
