March is Here...

Citizens of Rochester have been taking their meals outdoors on Park Ave, in the sunshine, sipping sangria from long stemmed wine glasses - The sidewalks are lined with strollers and dog walkers, people jogging in the late afternoon sun - The cherry trees are in full bloom - Wildflowers are popping up everywhere...

Spring is here....

I turned 28 this month... Two more big modeling trips lined up (DC, Houston) - And then I start interviewing for grooming positions in May.... Excited for a part time job, it has been years since I've worked in the real world - Excited about spending time with friends. Excited about spending the summer with someone that I love so much.....

February in Rochester

Grew up in Syracuse, NY.... Never have I seen a winter this mild, this soft spoken - The snow comes quietly at night, melts off early, before homemakers can pull back their curtains and catch a glimpse. If I wasn't staying up until 3am every night, I doubt I would even notice that it snowed at all - MomDog and I walk the SouthWedge late on those nights, dark windows, soft snowflakes.... Mornings are remnants of Texas, brilliantly sunny - Warm, vibrant - Sunlight teases your windows, begs you to start your day.... And yet, by the time you brush your teeth and pull on your coat, the clouds set in - The sky turns gray, heavy, overcast, dark, muddled, dreary - The days here are long and dark. I feel like I am living in the Pacific Northwest, but without the ocean or the hot springs or the many wintertime festivals...

For a girl who relies on the weather for happiness....
I don't thrive very well here.
A cactus, in Alaska....

Dog Grooming Certification is going well, though - Only five more weeks to go - I am currently studying for my written test for the Department of Education..... Started looking for work last week..... I dunno. I'm nervous - Outside of modeling, I haven't applied for a job in almost seven years - I am completely clueless with how to approach my interview... obviously, I don't have much of a resume... And obviously, I cannot talk about my current job as a nude model.... Soooo I guess I just have to rely on the fact that I've been in certification school for eight months?....

My birthday is in two weeks.... Matt and I are going to celebrate by throwing a HUGE Moulin Rouge party...... All the men will have groomed moustaches and frilly french button down shirts - All the girls have to dress up like burlesque dancers... We are going to serve french food and champagne.... Ha. It will be silly, fun, and lighthearted.... I enjoy any reason to dress up and be around good company...

As for modeling stuff - I am headed to Detroit this weekend.... Sita Mae got some of our photos published in the Dirty Show (one of the largest erotic art shows in the US)!..... very exciting

New Work!

Kerouac

“There’s nothing to life but the living of it…hold still man, regain your love of life and go down from this mountain and simply be-be-be the infinite fertilities of the one mind of infinity. make no comments, complaints, criticisms, appraisials, avowals, sayings, shooting stars of thought, just flow, flow, be you all, be your what it is, it is only what it always is…so shut up, live, travel, adventure, bless and don’t be sorry.” - Jack Kerouac


"Collision with Animal"

I don't know why, of all the times in the world, that Buck deer had to cross in front of my car.. *sigh* - Couldn't have stopped if I wanted to... he galloped full speed, right into the drivers side of my mustang. Happened so fast.... I could barely breathe. Huge antlers headed towards my window, it's eyes rolling into it's head, I heard it's neck snap as it impacted on my windshield.... Car shook and rattled.... Drove a half mile before the engine gurgled, turned over and died....

Highway Patrol showed up three minutes later - Two guys hopped out with flashlights, frantically looking at the under carriage of their own car. "Did you see that fucking deer!!!? It was a monster!! Biggest one I've seen all season!! Can't believe we ran right over it!" Flashlights on my door, flashlights in my face... Kept trying to tell them that I was OK - But couldn't roll my window down or open my door.... car was too smashed up....

Tow truck guy (who was insanely attractive beyond all comprehensible belief) - Towed me to Farmington, a small town about twenty miles from Rochester NY. Dropped off my car. Dropped me off at a hotel. By which time, it was about 4am.... I called Matthew and gushed about how terrible I felt about killing a majestic magical animal with seven points on each antler - Matthew gushed about how I should go pick the deer up and bring it home so we could eat it - "I've been a vegetarian for three years, but I would make an exception to save that animal from wasting away on the side of Highway 90".... Obviously, I didn't go back for the deer..... I imagine Matthew and I trying to cut up a big bloody animal in our backyard... I would cry, he would cry, we'd be covered in blood... It would be a mess... As my adrenaline rush finally left me at 5:30am, I crashed on top of my covers...

USAA is awesome. They had my car towed to Rochester, to a nearby collision place for free. They set me up with a cute rental car from Enterprise (little Toyota Camery). Issued the check yesterday so my car will be worked on promptly. I have a $500 deductible. The collision place told me I probably won't have the mustang back until after Thanksgiving.... so it looks like I am driving my rental car to Boston for the holidays. Yep.
