First , I’d like to congratulate JoAnn for the Bust interview in the article “Women who play with dolls” (or some such)! I knew Gina, Donna & Tiff were gonna be in there from the TIB forum, but I am soooo tickled to see JoAnn’s name in lights along with her sexy goh guy. Volks is getting exposure. Doh! Go get it now! June issue is on the stands.
A bit of irony re: another article in this issue (and I’m not a regular reader of Bust) is called, and I paraphrase heavily, “Financial planning for stupid fucked up slackers.”
Gah! *shuffles feet*
The other book we bought at B & N was “Financial Planning for dummies.” Yes, I know. So dumb. But it’s true. I’m one of those people who stood around at cocktail parties looking fantastic all through my twenties. Now I’m 35, married, still manage to have the cool dot.bomb job and I’m absolutely clueless. As my therapist (yes I’m seeing one) kindly put it “you are completely unprepared for adult life.”
But suddenly I want to know I won’t be a homeless junkie when I’m 68, and it really, really matters. So what does that mean? I HAVE TO STOP SPENDING MONEY.
That hurts too.
I can’t stand being here. There is so much to do at home that I am climbing out of my skin.
My pretty girl awaits! Aaaaaaaaaaah!
