We loves us some Amy

On Thursday, October 26th, I attended a promo signing event with Amy Sedaris that my boyfriend Dave had put together. She'd been in town to do a couple of signings and Dave had been able to arrange her appearance at Virgin's corporate office for a lunch time craft demonstation followed by a quick Q & A and signing blads of her new book "I like You, Hospitality Under the Influence". I arrived shortly after noon and got to meet Amy (tackle box in hand) and Dave in a side room before she had started her demo. The first thing out of her mouth upon meeting me was, "Oh, he's not ugly!" Amy's very petite in person with a flawless complexion, a lovely smile and big, sparkly eyes. After some idle chit-chat, Amy descended upon the hapless Virgin employees with phrases like "I live on the corner of Faggot & Cocksucker" and later brought the crowd up-to-date on her imaginary boyfriend Ricky's current state of being (He's a ghost now who haunts her apartment and won't do the bills). The soothing "Eye Burrito" demonstation was a hoot and later Amy granted one of my wishes by letting us tape up our noses and pose as Piglet, the filthest teenager on the planet. Aaahhhhhhh......Viva Life!

Princess Cubbie!

This is our friend Haz's dog who we babysit for occasionally. This is her at her very own birthday party. Yes, you heard it right, a birthday party for a dog. Dave took this amazing shot of her highness in mid-cuteness. Can't think of better way to start a blog.
