Tiger bites Court Jester during Capricorn Birthday
"I, like, totally thought you were vegetarian"
December 31, 2007
I started it by biting her first. We were all talking
about cats biting and our experiences with cats from tigers to
house kitty cats and a couple of people got bitten. It's as simple
Don't believe the tabloid accounts. While it is
true that there was quite a bit of liquor consumed and that several
nameless individuals were clearly three sheets to the wind, that
was not enough to account for my lingering thoughts some 12 hours
later. Huh? (Imagine Luke Thomas playing original compositions
in the background with Phil on guitar).
It was Sue 'Sweet Sue' Vaughan's birthday party
for her and fellow Capricorns, Karen 'Sigourney' Babbitt, Bob
'take it to the house' Brigham and Elaine 'One wrinkle and I'm
outta here' Santore -- plus, it's my grandson Wesley's 2nd birthday
'Sweet' Sue Vaughan
Birthday gal Sue Vaughan bites a chunk out of h. brown during
an impromptu end of year progressive convention, held in the kitchen
of Alexandra Jones bohemian museum.
You having fun?
This has been my best housesit ever. All of our
love and affection for Bulldog Empress, Alexandra
Jones and continuing thanks for the opportunity for us to
get out of our little rooms and host parties in your magnificent
Going from a Tenderloin SRO to a million buck TIC
for 18 days? Beyond priceless. I cooked the best turkey I ever
did. My best friends and their children came in and shopped, and
I put them up in Ax's luscious master bedroom while cats Zazu
and Zzyyzzy and I reclined before the front room's triple-bay
windows across from the piano, and watched the moon approach,
go full and then fade as 2007 departs and 2008 cautiously enters.
Gonzalez rejects olive wreath
I sent an invite to Matt Gonzalez to join us for
Sue's party last night. Told him to bring his posse. No response.
He's a hell of a guy and a great politician and
I hope he'll come back and join us tonight at the New Year's Eve
party (at Ax's). The New Year is a great time for reconciliation,
Tonight I'm calling myself the 'overflow party'
for those who are either inbetween parties or just want to have
a drink with Jens and I at Ax's.
Damn, I have great friends. As Elaine Santore explains
to some angry guest: "It's just h being h." Lord, I'd
probably spend most of my time in the hospital or jail without
my friends. I'm incorrigible. And, profane. I'm also a loyal and
a very hard-working friend. I'm well rewarded.
I harassed Rick Hauptman and called the DCCC a 'useless
cadre of hacks' and got a hair of a rise. I flirted ceaselessly
with Vaughan and Babbitt and tried to chase away the other males.
Meaningless. Almost everyone is gay.
Rick Hauptman: "I've seen that picture of you, Marc,
and I've got some mistletoe."
Enrique brings me a cigar from Cuba. Marc Salomon
comes in and holds court over Alexandra's huge heavy beam Mission
dining table with Denise D'Anne and Erika Macdonald and co-parent,
John-Marc Chandonia with their the tiniest and cutest little daughter,
Amy, who's ooh'ed and aah'd and scrutinizes the world from the
standpoint of her 3 months on planet San Francisco.
Marc Salomon gets blown a kiss from Green Party coagulent Erika
Amy Elizabeth Chandonia, 3 months.
Enrique Asis once received an X and O from Fidel Castro.
Luke took a shot of the ladies. Susan King (minus
20 lbs?), Elaine, Vaughan, Babbit, D'Anne and Sasaneh. They represent
an amazing range of beauty, sensuality and political fire before
As the year closes
I didn't get laid again and you'll be the first
to know if I do and that could have something to do with my not
being able to get laid.
And on. And on.
Y'all need some comfortable bases to fall back on
as you move into the New Year. When you need raunchy satire (really
girls, I won't tell) or edgy coverage with humor, I'm here for
Remember me in 2008
I'll make you immortal
But, you already were
Happy New Year!
