portrait of the artist as a wretch

In movies and television the women who are doing hard manual labor always manage to look sexily disheveled, but for some reason I usually end up looking like Ma Gogan. Plus in this photo I seem to have crazy lady hair like that nasty Gosselin woman who is taking up all the news these days. Truly, I am of most women most miserable.

I am just so tired for you. I thought of you this morning when I remembered one of my brother's favorite sayings. When he truly despises something he'll say, "I hate it with the passion of a thousand suns." And I thought to myself, "I bet Layne hates tar paper and cutting in and her entire office with the passion of a thousand suns." Am I right?

Oh, and? You totally don't have the hair of a divorced mom of 8. Yours is far cuter - even when "sexily disheveled."

Hey! I have a saying very similar to that, only it's "I hate _____ with the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns." I acquired it from the great Diane Chambers on Cheers.

I hope that this holiday weekend will give you the break that you need. Fireworks help you wind down, right?

Hang in there.
