Smirk At Life

June 6, 2015

I  Never have been able to grasp the attraction of “Hello Kitty”….as I was wandering up Melrose to LaLa’s …there was a line forming…outside the store…

when I walked back there was a line in both directions on Melrose and around the next block….

My gay waiter came by to chat and we talked about Caitlyn Jenner….and he said “Oh did I tell you what happened with my husband…” he went on….. “last week he was driving with this friend of ours whom I HATE to drive with …as he drives so recklessly..speeds while he is texting…..he all of a sudden hit this woman crossing Western…they took a picture of the windshield and I said ‘What woman wears so much make-up…..?’ as you could see her lip imprint on the windshield….”

“Turns out that she is transgender…and was in a woman’s  sober living house…who on finding out she still has a penis has kicked her out…I told my husband that his friend HAS to at Least find her a new place to live…”

well I was just SPEECHLESS….at the total disregard for a human life……I still am in shock at the cavalier attitude he had in relating this story….and when I said what about insurance ….and that he would probably lose his license…

he said : “He said he had insurance….and yes I guess he will lose his Drivers License for a while”

My mouth has dropped to the floor twice today….and it is SOOO hard to close it…

My wonderful roommate – the Very Talented actress Meg Steedle….about three weeks ago found out that the series she plays a major role in…”The Mysteries of Laura”….WAS renewed…for which she was thankful…..as it was rumored by TV Guide and others that it was on the Death Watch list…………

she left for a relaxing vacation with her Fabulous boyfriend Zach….to Cabo….

before going back East to eventually resume filming…

They notified her last night….that she would not be needed in the next episodes…as she was too “expensive……”

My mouth dropped to the floor…and I said “SHIT!!!”…..

as she WAS the BEST thing on that show….she added a lot of comedy…fun and Beauty…which THAT show was missing….

The Longer I live I just am amazed by Life…well Humans……the way they treat each other….how controlling money…. can seem so important….

But in all honesty….I find that people with less money …enjoy Life so much more…than those with the responsibilities of Wealth….my Aunt Mimi….was always fascinated by Teddy Hamm…(of the Hamm Brewery)…he would arrive at her summer house “Forest Lodge”….(she had 4 residences from Florida to NY to Wisconsin)….. he being wealthy was “eccentric”…wed a Native American to shock his parents…..

rather than wearing a Jacket and tie for dinner…would wander in …with the blanket off his bed in the fabulous “Guest House” at Forest Lodge .. around his shoulders….

that would bring a smirk to her lips

She said she felt hassled that so many museums wanted her Japanese Art Collection….(but she LOVED the attention)…..and how hard it was to decide whom to give it to on her death…..(the Met got most of it)…she owned one floor at 3 East 77th Street in NYC

…her apartment was …kind of tacky as people born with old wealth are …..the only other apartment on the floor was where her mini-museum was..with all of these old Japanese scrolls worth millions of dollars…

now imagine if this overly made up transgender woman…kicked out of a “Sober House”…appeared…in her grand dining room at Forest Lodge ……with a blanket over her shoulder…

her smirk would not last too long……………….

    We “poor folk” very often do enjoy life more than the fabulously wealthy” in that we don’t have to worry about so many mundane things as investments and money. –just day to day living. Hugs R&R

    Praise to those that treasure people (family & friends) over money and things!
