Ay, Gahd, I Gotta Rest My Chi-chi Bo-bo's!


"Ay, gahd, I gotta rest my chi-chi bo-bo's!"

Thus sayeth the Divine Miss M on her comedy album from the eighties, "Mud Will Be Flung Tonight!" She is speaking in reference to her ample bosom.

This has nothing to do with tonight's post. I'm just a huge lifelong fan of La Midler and her bawdy, crass comedy. And that saying was on my mind as I sat down to type.

A writer writes. This simple statement was a quote from Alex Sanchez, one of the many authors I hope to emulate. Alex said he had thought that becoming a writer would mean becoming rich and famous, as well. He discovered that being a writer means that you write.

Who knew?

Well, it's obvious, yes. But who knew that it was allowed to be that simple in theory, if not in our actual realities?

I have wanted to be a writer since before puberty. That was a full three decades ago.
I have finally been taking some significant and substantial baby steps toward reaching that childhood dream. It's a major part of what has made the past few months such a good 2007 for me.

So, to the few and faithful who tune into this blog, I apologize for being so absent. I am writing! Just give me another month to complete the wonderful writing workshop that currently dominates my spare time, and I will be frothing more often, once again, with the plastic bubbliness that churns within the world inside my mind.

I LOVE Bette Midler. I discovered her as a child and just fell for her voice and style. We have to go to Vegas when she starts performing there!

PG, and you luv it!

JP, it means I bury my head in the sand too much, ostrich style!

N, I saw her "Kiss My Brass" tour, here in LA--imagine an audience full of Jewish senior citizens and middle-aged gays. It was fabulous!

Q, I am also your Lifetime Channel for Women partner. I've told P his shirt is 'garish.'

Mud Will Be Flung Tonight is the reason I tell people that I "don't even go to the fridge without major support."
