Oh for the love of Buddha I am off again to California on November 3rd.
Will this hell never end? I just want to be left alone and enjoy the benefits of agoraphobia.
I’d rather eat razor blades.
The people at Reno International Airport (International? Right. Excuse me while I smirk stage left) know me by sight now. Hell they know my damned name.
“Hey Miss R? Off to Cali again?”
“You betcha. Hell it’s been two weeks. How’s the wife?” I ask
“Oh just fine Miss R. You packing any more of those switchblade stiletto knives?” says Jonathon.
– I giggle- “No hon, just the shoes this time”
“Alrighty then, we’ll see you in two weeks! Don’t forget to pick up that Eightball you left at the security desk on the last trip.”
“Damn. I did forget. You rock. Thanks babe.” And I blow him a kiss.
So this trip is to celebrate my dad’s 75th Birthday.
I always think of my parents as being in their 30’s. Fuck I’m older than that now. It’s more than a bit disconcerting when I do see them and witness their physical age.
Hmmm oddly enough they surely feel the same way.
So I have to fly into Orange County (John Wayne INTERNATIONAL airport yark) because the party is at my sister’s house.
Christ I can’t believe I quit drinking. Whadda Maroon.
Yeah I’m so on top of the world now and filled with self-esteem and happy happy joy joy feelings.
Excuse me while I put on the hair shirt won’t you?
Okay it’s worth it to see my dad and he will be surprised. It is after all a surprise party. Well, I’m surprised. What the hell.
Wait nevermind. My dad is pretty much the poster boy for tunnel-vision so maybe not.
Yeah so I’ll see Cate which is a fab thing, and see my step-sisters which is a half-fab thing (’cause I only enjoy one of them), and see my dad which is a wonderful thing.
Then it’s back on a Southwest jet to Reno two days later.
Hopefully for longer than two weeks.
James has got to be sick and tired of catering to Lizzie.
Jeez, James what the hell do you look like anyway? Liz sees way more of you than I do.
I can do this.
Although I want my Xanax back dammit.
