Took the dog to the vet this morning and somewhere during the visit began to take obscure satisfaction when the techs (who were great) would say in a knowledgeable, off-hand way things like “she’s a bleeder” and “she always has a reaction to shots” and “wow, it’s been a few months since we saw you!” It’s like having custodianship of a 7-pound hemophiliac Russian princeling.

A still from last night’s David Lynch-directed Duran Duran film. (I still wish Herzog had directed instead.)

6. Hungry Like The Volf

I met my friend Lori tonight to see the new Duran Duran concert film directed by David Lynch (one night, one showing only!). She told me that she kept getting confused this week and telling people that it was directed by Werner Herzog, which is, it turns out, really easy to construct. “Here is master vocalist Simon LeBon” and “Duranies come from near and far” and “like a volf, we are hungry.” Also, at one point, Werner’d maybe track down bitter Andy Taylor at his village pub and make him listen to anecdotes about Klaus Kinski.

It was a lot of fun. There were only 20 or so people in the theater besides us, and Lori pointed out how like junior high it felt—to be slouched in a seat eating Junior Mints with one of your friends, watching Duran Duran videos, while the rest of the world’s off doing something else.

thebegats:

"Keeping up with the Joneses" is said to have originated in reference to Edith Wharton’s great aunts on her father’s side. ”The Jones family history was marked by bitterness, greed, self-interest, and favoritism,” themes that recur in Wharton’s writing, Carol Singleton argues.

(Thanks to Carrie — tinglealley — for the Wharton genealogy tutorial!)

EDITH!!!

My stepdaughter had a baby on Thursday, her first. It was big, weird, and great, and I’m still (to borrow from Lauren) getting my wig back on. The hospital had tags for visitors that they used to scan you in and out of the room, and there was a point when three of us, along with her husband, went out to grab some lunch and we all had these tags on our shirts, sitting in a restaurant—and it was like wearing a badge that marks you as part of a strange cult or sect, where you all have to eat together and don’t mix much with the outside world.

Later in the afternoon I was sitting by my stepdaughter on a little chair next to the monitor with the baby’s heartbeat. It sounded like a washing machine filling up—if the sound of a washing machine filling up became unexpectedly moving. It was still going to be a few hours till go time so everyone in the room was just chatting about dumb stuff—like Instagram and video games—and when she’d have a contraction—every three minutes or so—she’d do a sharp intake of breath and be quiet and inward-looking for a second and then keep chatting. At one point someone looked at his phone and said, “Joan Rivers died.” Just then my stepdaughter had a contraction; she was quiet and then said, in a lament, “… and before awards season too.”

"There’s nothing wrong," I said. "It’s just that, as an individual, I’ve failed in life."

"So have we all," he said, "you, I, all the people here in the station buffet. We are every one of us failures. The secret of life is to recognise the fact early on, and become reconciled. Then it no longer matters."

"It does matter," i said, "and I am not reconciled."

— Reading Daphne du Maurier’s The Scapegoat and hit a Pema Chodron patch in it.

Lately a friend of mine’s four year old is into saying, “I don’t like your good idea.” (I assume this is a contraction of some preschool-learned politeness along the lines of “That’s a good idea, but…”)

Just putting it out there in case you’ve been looking for a new way to express displeasure/ issue a veto/ rebut a think piece.

When Jane was working on this story on the history of Seventeen, we did a lot of emailing back and forth about Back to School magazine issues and how much we loved them. In junior high I read the hell out of every September issue of Seventeen, and the memory is all caught up with the anticipation of seeing people again after the summer and the belief that Everything Was Going To Be Different This Year.

One year, one of the pieces of editorial advice was to soak cotton balls with perfume and lay them on your next day’s outfit so that the outfit would become pleasantly layered with scent. I did this DILIGENTLY for at least a month. Four or five cotton balls each night. So that’s what September always feels like to me, like the time of year that you believe that you can soak some cotton balls in Jean Nate, tuck them in your clothes overnight, and become magically alluring the next day.

One of my favorite things in Sylvia Plath’s diaries are the entries that swing from “I need to start having people over for dinner more often! What a pleasure to cook for people!” to “I need to stop having people over for dinner all the time, they’re assholes and I need more time to write.” (Loose paraphrase!)

I think of this whenever I get in a burst of sociability.

maudnewton:

Dear ragweed: I almost typed rageweed by accident, even though I was going to try to come up with something fair-minded to say. Such as, theoretically I have nothing against you. But if you could just not pollinate? Or if you could thrive on the moon?

Ugh, yes. When I read today’s horoscope for Geminis, it left off, “You will accidentally take a Benadryl nap midmorning.”

A couple of years ago we were in San Francisco visiting my stepson, and one night we were walking back from dinner and there was this nice grenadine-ish smell in the air, and I said, “It smells like cherries.” My stepson paused, sniffed, and said, “That’s urinal cakes, Carrie.” (Except he’s very deadpan, so it was more like, “That’s. urinal. cakes.”) Anyway, I was writing well this morning so I was late getting to the woods for a walk. It was already hot out and there were lots of thick gnarly spider webs everywhere with dime-sized spiders in them. None of the guys I passed were wearing shirts. And once in a while when the breeze picked up it smelled a lot like urinal cakes (not unpleasantly!).

“"I’m not used to seeing people’s faces," he said. "There’s too much information there. Aren’t you aware of it? Too much, too fast."

The Strange Tale of the North Pond Hermit

Wow. This is an incredible story of a man who lived in the woods of Maine for nearly three decades, surviving almost entirely on things he stole from summer homes. He was finally caught, and reporter Micheal Finkel struck up a sort of friendship with him, visiting him in prison and learning about the years he spent silent and alone.

My friend Flurry saw this while he was out and about in San Francisco today. He wrote, “Title page of novel? Contents of package? Taped to teacher’s back?”

I really hope it’s the first. “Now I’d like to read a short section from my novel entitled … ,” etc.
