Comparing Marilyn Monroe to cake? Sure, why not.

I'm a huge Marilyn Monroe fan. One of my goals is to own every movie she's ever done, and I'm actually pretty close to reaching it. Most of her really early stuff is out of print and super hard to find, but I'm still working on it. My two favorite MM movies are Don't Bother to Knock and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

Anyway, I came across this awesome post entitled Red-Hot: A Treat-ise on Marilyn Monroe and Red Velvet Cake. I truly enjoyed reading it. There are some great comparisons and I love the author's take on it. So, I'm sharing it. Enjoy! :)

Late, I can stay up late, in and out of bed...

I am late for everything. EVERYTHING. I'm late for work. I'm late for family gatherings. I'm late for doctor's appointments. I've been late for court, vet appointments, meetings, jury duty, weddings and funerals. Hell, even my period can't decide whether to be late or not most of the time.

There is one thing I am never late for, however. A deadline at work. I always make my deadlines. It drives me batshit when people ignore deadlines, or act like the deadline is merely a suggestion rather than an actual deadline. They're deadlines for a reason, people. If you don't meet your deadline, you're jeopardizing my deadline, and that just pisses me off.

I've even padded the schedule and given false deadlines, that's how bad it gets. But even then, there's always someone who misses it, and always someone who pushes it until the very last minute. Both of my magazines are running so late right now that this week was absolute hell, and I've been so stressed that it's taking me forever to wind down tonight and realize that I don't have to deal with any of it for 2 whole days.

2 whole days.
It's SO not enough.

Yep, I started a blog.

So after several people suggesting that I start my own blog since I always have something to say...well, I did. Since it's nearly 3am and I really need to be asleep, this first post will just be some random stuff about me, like an introduction. I promise the posts will get more interesting from here on out. :)

*NJ Gypsy Queen
*Member of The Dirty Diamonds, Girls of Modified, and Angels With Ink.

*part-time alt/tattooed model
*former punk rock singer for the band Pop-Up Porn
*rescuer of animals
*world's biggest klutz, seriously
*mouth like a trucker

A ridiculous amount of my memory capacity seems to be dedicated to song lyrics.

I have several tattoos and I want more.

I have this weird habit of bending paper clips into and out of shapes when I'm at work.

At any given time I have at least 3 shades of lip gloss in whichever purse/bag I'm carrying.

I love my family, friends, and animals and don't know what I'd do without any of them.

The beach is my favorite place to be.

I love music and seriously don't think I could live without it.

I have a major shoe and purse addiction.
Give me a burger and a beer and I'm a happy girl.
There is always a bottle of Pepsi in my fridge.

My first crush was Jack Tripper. My second crush was Hawkeye Pierce.
I make a mean chocolate chip cheesecake.

"Appetite for Destruction" by Guns N' Roses is the only album which I own in 4 formats: vinyl, cassette, CD, and mp3.

"Ave Maria" affects me like no other piece of music ever written.

The song "In the Air Tonight" by Phil Collins creeps me out so much I can't hear even 2 seconds of it.

One of my favorite completely random things to do is watch competitive dog shows on TV.

Two of my favorite TV characters of all time are Alice on The Honeymooners and Karen on Will & Grace.

My favorite piece of art is Van Gogh's "Starry Night."

I love interesting little dive bars.
I'm late for everything.
I can cross my eyes.

I fucking HATE clowns.

I'm VERY impatient.
I have a wicked temper.

I can be quite sarcastic.
I have a tendency to be brutally honest, I sugarcoat nothing and I rarely edit myself. If I think you're an asshole, I'll tell you so.
I offer no apologies for who and what I am.
