1/19/2010 - Birthday!
1/19/2010 - The first one! I chose describing the excellent ways my birthday was spent as the motivation to start the comic journal off. I was living in Montclair, NJ at the time. Dinner was at my faaaavorite restaurant at that time, a Chinese fine dining restaurant called Sesame. They closed a couple years later - I miss that place so much. Still the only non-takeout Chinese place I've ever been to, if you can believe that. The prices were still reasonable but the food... TO DIE FOR.
1/27/2010 - Sarah Palin
Actually, I do know why I was watching Oprah. Where we were living at the time, we rented an apartment in the third floor of a family's home. I was downstairs and the lady was watching TV and Sarah Palin was being interviewed by Oprah. No, Oprah never said that. I only WISH she did. And Sarah Palin... I only made what she said a LITTLE weirder... some of that actually came out of her mouth.
1/??/2010 - LarryCon
LarryCon was what my ex-husband's friend Larry called him having his birthday party in a convention room at a hotel. He staged it like a convention, with different events at different times. The one I showed up for was "Jägermeister Brunch," at which we realized it was the Jägermeister that was for brunch, not a brunch to be consumed with Jägermeister.
People Think You're Crazy
My homage to having always been someone who just says random things at random times. Look, a squirrel! Oh, sorry. What? And yes, that kid in the classroom is singing Goldfrapp's "Utopia". The teacher is about to be like, "...WHAT?!?"
The Evolution of Woman
It was a real epiphany to me just how much every single thing about being pregnant and being a new mother seemed designed to bust you back down to the level of an infant so you'd fully commiserate with the helpless creature you were now tasked with taking care of. You grow all the way up, and get to a certain point in your life, only to find yourself right back there, having to pee every twelve seconds, crying, behaving too impulsively, throwing dirty, goopy, wet, cranky- the ciiircle of liiife!

I teared up. Legit.
