My friend Jo Ann retaught me the value of lists.
A short wordy list
1. I thought I was going to die yesterday. I couldn’t breathe, my heart was racing, I was dizzy, sweating, panicked and going to have what I thought would be a heart attack or stroke. After much research, this is what I’ve found - If I were a doctor I would diagnosis yesterday’s near death experience as an aspartame induced panic attack. Now keep in mind I am a hypochondriac, (although what happened to me was very, very real), but after doing a lot of research I think the aspartame that almost killed me, also caused me to panic, which in turn made me feel like I was dieing. It was horrible and I never want to have that experience again. Never. So I am so off Aspartame. And I think you should be too.
2. In Amsterdam I went to a peep show. It cost 2 euros for 2 minutes and it seemed to be a favored spot for all the boys. So we thought why not, and if I had kept my big trap shut it would have been a fairly hot experience despite the fairly unhot performers. But I can’t keep my mouth shut, as anyone who knows me has probably experienced at some point in their very fortunate lives (if you know me I feel like you must realize you’re fortunate and now I hope you know I’m joking. No I’m not. Yes I am. I was in the booth with one other girl because while two boys weren’t allowed in a booth - for some strange reason (hmmm? what could that be?) two girls were. Well, me and the other girl who went into the booth together were talking pretty loudly about what we could see, never even realizing that they could see us back. It got really uncomfortable after I exclaimed “I wish they would just fuck” and, well, they did, and then things got ugly. I’m going to try to write it up as a story. Then you can read more.
3. I’m teaching a class for the first time this Thursday night. It’s at a party in NYC and it starts at 7PM. Tickets are around $20, and it’s a pretty different kind of place. If you’re interested email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll give more information. I don’t want to write more about it now as I am still fine tuning my idea - can you say it’s already Monday, shouldn’t this be done by now - but I will say this: if you come to my class, which is called The Sexth Sense, which may or may not give you any idea about what the class is about, you could also come for my friend Abby’s lecture and forum on Play Party Etiquette. Then…well, let’s just say the party starts.
4. I’ve just realized that I have too much too do to keep writing this list. How come some places spell realized with an “s”? Like this..realised…have you ever noticed this?
