~~The Day After~~

Today is the day after I published the book I've been trying to write nearly all of my life. I feel sick. 

Maybe it is the purging.  Maybe it is the fear that my story is really "out there." Maybe it is the lack of control, like when you let the proverbial cat out of the bag. Maybe it is the anxiety of not knowing what, if anything, will happen in my life as a result of publishing "Phunny."

I don't know...

Well, mark this day, as this is finally the day that I finished writing the book about my life.  I have not published it, and the thought of "pulling the trigger" is causing me to have an anxiety attack of grand proportions. Once I pull the trigger, everything is "out there."  As one of my best friends says, "You can't un-fuck a fuck."

I am shaking uncontrollably.  I even ate a bowl of spicy chili, thinking that it would help me stop the shaking.  It didn't. Thank GOD for leftover xanax, phor phuck's sake.

I have been wanting...and others have been prodding me...to write this for many, many years.  I finally was able to right the tragedy of my life in a shroud...of humor.  Thank GOD for humor, phor phuck's sake.  It is the REAL saving grace in life.

~~Orange Sky in Arizona~~

A new restaurant opened in the Phoenix area, "Orange Sky," at Talking Stick Casino. 

The restaurant/lounge, located on the 15th floor of the new resort, boasts a 360 degree panoramic look of the Valley and Fountain Hills. Stunning, never-to-be-seen-again views are indescribably breathtaking.

I reserved a private "viewing booth" at just the right time of day during this time of year, 5:30.

Ketel 1 martini, a little dirty....like me.
Notice Camelback Mountain just as the sun is about to set, thus "Orange Sky."
The food was outstanding!  And yet, it paled in comparison to the EXPERIENCE.

Speaking of experience, it was clear that we overstayed our welcome, when, over my right shoulder I overheard someone say, "It's about time....(they leave)."

Beautiful legs...
Hmmmm....now.....that's not nice....so, of course, I said something.  The manager came over and OFFERED a nice, very nice wine for desert.
