Stuff Happens. Like Washing Playboy in the Laundry.

A few little ditties this week.


Because I feel like it, hookers.


Last night I inadvertently washed my Playboy magazine in a load of laundry. Not sure how that happened but my sheets were covered with pieces of tattered boobies. It took me a while to discover why my clothes were sprinkled with shredded paper and when I finally figured it out it was like my own starring role in Nancy Drew and the Case of the Disappearing Playboy Magazine.

It was fun.

I was a sad panda though, because I really did want to read the issue.

Who spies fleshy bits?

Good books were delivered to me this week. Choke by Chuck-who-in-the-hell-can-pronounce-his-last-name-Palahniuk, The Mapmaker’s War by Ronlyn Domingue (loved her since The Mercy of Thin Air – dear god please read this NOW), and Spillover by David Quammen.


"Oh sweet babies..."

“Oh sweet babies…”


I’m salivating to start Spillover tonight. Every now and then I get hot and bothered to read about infectious diseases. And you know, because I don’t like sleep. At all.


Saturday, the husband and I drove out to Four Peaks to do some target shooting. The Arizona desert is very beautiful and yet it reminds me of scenery in The Neverending Story, which is also a bit depressing. We went off-roading and drove through these creepy tunnels. I kept picturing hordes of zombies careening through them to eat our delicious brainssssssss.

On the writing front, I have a flash fiction piece called “Betty Lou is Welcomed to Undereaters Anonymous” in the spring edition of JMWW. Robert Vaughan rocks for including me among other fine, fine writers. JP Reese’s “Simulacra” had me marveling.

I also had a piece of fiction that’s been trying to find a home since June of 2012 accepted by Pithead Chapel so that makes me feel all kinds of good.

    So sad about the lost Magazine. The Naughty that should’ve been. The Mapmaker’s War is on my to read list AND CONGRATS ON THE PUBLICATIONS. You sure are purdy in the head places, Jules.

    Just love your writing … btw, the “real” Robert Vaughan? Actor and such? He and spell our last the same and we’re in the minority that way … just hoping he has me in his will. Every time I think I’m a slob for not writing as I should, I read yours and I have confirmation of just what a slob I be. Cheers.

    I have one old Playboy magazine. It features Carol Wayne. I’ve been waiting to give it to someone who appreciates the “Carson Sidekick.” A sad story in the end for her.

    I take full responsibility for bringing this writer into the world.
