An Ongoing List of Things About The Woman Behind,Miss Hag.
It is purely self serving and I don't expect anyone to read it.
1.)This is how I see the end of my life.
2.) My boyfriend's deejay name is Grand King Automatic. He has beautiful eyes.
3.) I was born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire at the Naval Shipyard.
4.) I have no desire to be married or have a wedding. But, if I was given this ring, I would take it. It was created by Mimi So who makes beautiful jewelry. This particular ring has a black diamond center. Black like my heart.
5.) Post-Its make me happy.
6.) In my alternate reality life, I am a parfumeur. I have an exquisite laboratory on the top floor of a Manhattan highrise. The lab has a greenhouse with exquisite floral specimens and rows and rows of Erlenmyer flasks and glass pipettes. My assistants and I discuss base notes as we sip chilled cordials.
7.) The year 1975 had the lowest birth rate since the Depression. People born in this year are rare and precious gems in the universe.
