You know me! I'm like, "Go school! It's your birthday!" Or something to that effect.

Willow ,'Empty Places'

ita's thread

A place where we can talk about ita, miss ita, and share information about memorials. The hugging started over here in Natter.

If you're going through hell/keep on going/don't slow down/keep your fear from showing/you might be gone/'fore the devil even knows you're there

I had just met a guy who did animal portraits at a benefit and for Secret Santa I reached out and had him do a sketch of Amyth’s Lulu, who had passed recently. I think that was my favorite Santa.

I always remember ita's birthday because she shares it with my sister. Not the only day of the year when I think of her, but a day I always think of her. Just a couple days ago I saw a young man resting in front of a Jamaican grocery drinking a Ting, and I smiled.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

The NYTimes crossword puzzle has "Ankh-carrying goddess" as a clue today, which of course made me think of ita.

Friends don't let friends read "Atlas Shrugged"

I saw the photos of Harvey Guillen at the Met Gala and, at first, thought he was wearing pink gingham. I don't think he was, but he'd be a worthy addition to the Pink Gingham Junta, wouldn't he.

Apparently if you're enough of a power nerd, there is nothing that cannot be flowcharted.

It wasn't pink gingham, but he did look spectacular at the Met Gala, and I think he'd be darling in pink gingham.

I am a woman of various inclinations and only some of the time are they to burn everything down in frustration

And we know he can do a spectacular fight scene.

Today was Frandenbuddha's birthday. Gone far too soon. Tipping my imaginary bowler hat in memory.

"Look, son, if it's good enough for Shirley Bassey, it's good enough for you."

One of his old comments rolled up in my FB memories where he said he wanted to come out to SF to visit me and JZ.

Never happened.

It makes me a sad that we found out about Frank and Connie and DXM so late after the fact through obits and family comments on social media.

"I'm useless alone." // "We're all useless alone. It's a good thing you're not alone."

I had a dream last night about realizing I'd not seen someone online in a while, and all of us (not this community, but another) having the same realization, and trying and contact her and make sure she was okay.
