The Truth



This picture represents the truth which is forthcoming now and over the next few days. What I would like to start with is that I feel constrained by my very own blog, by the form I created in part for myself. Sometimes I hate the character I have invented for myself and no longer feel free to be you and me even though I still like Mountain Men. But listen. I am not a man. I am part girl, but with a severe case of BDD, as was mentioned in the last post, and therefore feel relief when thinking of myself as a man even though I am not one. I have distant early memories of myself as a three year old dancing on my bed under the lavendar top sheet like a ghost, swaying, arms out, with an invisible other, singing quietly "I'm a man, I'm a man," in a faux-blues melody, even though IN NO WAY did I act or feel like a man. Or even a boy. I am not really masculine so much, in all honesty. However, I would just wonder, what is it like, being a man?

So. That's all for now. I feel full and drunk from teat milk. I saw many friends this evening: Sloth, HFP, HP, Damian, FB, Arthur, Lupus...it was nice. We went to an opening of a group show I am in and also Uncle Fritz is in but he was out of town. Sadly. Uncle Fritz is named for his real life uncle who is actually a very unpleasant and horrible man. I have often wondered why he decided to pick this name for himself, in wondering it makes me love him more. Uncle Fritz is a good man and I miss him. Kudos to you UF. I am ready for curdled slumber, and tomorrow, it's time for the Swedish Calisthenic Squat method.

I am so sorry I missed it MM. It was due to my glutton-like ways. By the time I finished dinner it was too late. I hate myself for it--really. Please forgive MM, please.

Mountain Man said...

Of course I forgive you PD. I am sorry you weren't there only cuz it was real fun.

I have a terrible headache though, just from 2 beers and one margarita-type thing. Why? I mean is it the mixing or what? My head poundy. I want to get to the gym and the studio today and it feels all-around like poo poo. I was home early, slept plenty. Please let the Christmas Angels let me out of pain central through the goodness of their little candy hearts.

pd said...

I will pray to the angels for your quick recovery. I am feeling crappy from one glass of wine and one glass of champagne.
I want to paint too...but I will be dragging my ass to the studio.

Let's make a Sunday morning pact TO GET TO THE SHACK NO MATTER WHAT!!!!

Then my plan was to go to the gym in the evening, bringing all my stuff with me. I think it can work. Coffee is now coarsing into my veins courtesy of my IV machine and I am starting to perk up.

PD!!!! You little devil. It sounds like your dinner was delectable.

I think MORASS is one of the greatest words ever.

Coke Whore said...

I like the word PUTRESCENCE personally. But MORASS is not bad. Not bad at all.

MM, how was the opening??!! Wonderful I am hoping. I am feeling bad for not being able to see you guys but I am making the plans to see your painting. I am very excited but confused as to why the show is called hello sunday if the gallery is closed on sunday. Why is that? hmm?

luck lucille said...

I have ccd class today.

pd said...

MM, I will have one more cup of joe and then go to the shack...I WILL.

Mountain Man said...

Krix! Hi. I don't know why the show is called that. It is obviously very misleading. I will lodge complaint immediately on your behalf.

Did you get my email regarding Wed.?

Lucille, how can such a bawdy girl as you be attending CCD. When you are DDD. It boggles my mind.

Mountain Man said...

Me too. I will go in my gym clothes so there is no way I can't go to the gym. That will trick me, right?

pd said...

maybe I will even go to the gym...thanks to you.

Lucky lucille said...

hey PD, I like your handle, although I think you need another letter in there. PMD, perhaps?

krixfort said...

Hi MM. Got the email! I am supposed to have class that night, a make-up class, but I am over it. I do not think I will attend that class. I am more looking forward to holiday festivities and seeing friends.

mountain man said...

Woohoo Krix!!! I am glad to hear it. Now I am finally out the door after laundry goings-on that no one wants to hear about I am sure.

Fixer said...

MM you will be ok. Your penis will grow back and you will cease thinking you are a lady.
