"the" Mrs. Astor

Tuesday, July 07, 2009

Now that Mr. Astor has returned from San Francisco, I can emerge from my self-imposed slumber; during the few times I did venture out, note was made that I was not myself. Actually, after Twist's birthday bash--a night that lasted until five in the morning--the sleep fest I engaged in was a relief. I did meet Mamie for tea on Sunday; it was typical Mamie. She barged into the the tearoom with five friends, all competing to be the loudest and guzzling every thing in their path. It was a fun afternoon for me, after spending three days in bed, but once again it was pointed out that I was a little too reserved. (A raging elephant dancing on a table and setting itself on fire would be a little too reserved next to that bunch.)
Celebrity bartender, Ditmar Perner, will host a party celebrating his birthday this Saturday, June 11 at his new venue on the beach of Ft. Lauderdale, Karnival. This club had fallen into a period of neglect and its new owners searched out the popular Ditmar to become general manager. Although not on what is generally called the gay part of the beach, in true Ditmar fashion he has decided to move the gay section to the beach in front of his new club.

Bye, bye Caribou Barbie.

Maureen Dowd wrote that Sarah Palin was "...one, nutty puppy" and had displayed "exquisite battiness" in The New York Times, and MSNBC's morning crew sighed, "...how could anyone function politically with a family like that?" But the oddest response of all, to me, was no response--at least initially--from the Drudge Report. With the world howling the news from every rooftop, Drudge took a long 24 hours to even post a piece on their darling.

Why does it seem that Sarah is going to be one of those summer colds that lingers and never seems to go away?

And, perhaps the police did save us from a future serial killer by skillfully profiling and tracking the movements of Tyler Weinman.
After explaining in great, gorey detail what it was like to dissect a cat, Miami-Dade police issued a statement declaring him a "sociopath" Also, it hasn't been reported all that much that his mother is a "life coach"; if she does half a good as job on her clients as she did on her son, we all should be worried.

Oh well, it's nice to be back and have Mr. Astor to fuss over again.

Re Sarah Palin:

Why are we at all surprised that, after making "elitism" a dirty word, this ho-hum unremarkable Plebian can captivate a nation of mouth-breathers?

If there is anything more that I detest than a liberal, it is a populist conservative. Yuck.

Glad to see your baby is back in town. We all enjoyed his company in San Fran.

Don't worry; I gave Leopoldo a detailed description of whom to avoid, and you were at the top of the list. I don't need some brazen hussy performing the dance of Salome' in front of him.
