thanksgiving, 2010

I am eternally thankful for…my 3 delightful babies; my 1 extraordinary husband; my 2 precious chihuahuas; all of my unique, entertaining, priceless friends; my hilarious, felonious family; knitting; books; travel; movies; Antiques Roadshow; ebay; an iphone on which I can not only order Chinese take-out, but even write when necessary; the incomparable Los Angeles; New York; Paris; Rome; Fresno; my shiny red Crazy Rodent Vehicle (CRV); my very own in-house washer and dryer; access to really good health insurance and the miracle medicine that makes it ALL possible; all the food we can eat (I’LL SAY!); electricity by which to eat it; the continuing good health and safety of all those whom I love and adore; the freedom to write and say whatever I want; AMAZING writing partners to do it with; the luxury of sleeping completely surrounded by a king’s ransom in down pillows every night; black cashmere sweaters; red lipstick; vintage Schiaparelli jewelry; a plain gold band that means everything to me; the rare privilege of doing what I love for a living; being a difficult woman; living in interesting times.

About muffybolding

Muffy Bolding is a mother/writer/actor/knitter/feminist/withered debutante who likes the smell of asparagus pee, and remains obsessed with the bathroom hygiene of her three children -- despite the fact that they are 23, 19, and 16. She is blissfully married to a cute Jewish boy who looks like Willie Wonka, but remains tragically in love with the dead poet, Ted Hughes. She has the mouth of a Teamster, and her patron saint is Rocco (pestilence relief.) Ms. Bolding lives in Southern California, where she enjoys typing words, making movies, and plucking the rings from the fingers of the dead. She was the co-creator and Editor-in-Chief of the award winning satire zine, Fresno Lampoon, and in between writing screenplays, carnival barking, and savagely threatening her trio of darling larvae with a wooden spoon, she currently publishes the zine, "Withered Debutante." More of her work can also be found in the anthology, "Mamaphonic: Balancing Motherhood and Other Creative Acts", the compilation zine, "Mamaphiles III: Coming Home", as well as in The Cortland Review and She is currently writing and producing for film and television, and working on a book of essays entitled, "Inside A Chinese Dragon." She has slept around, but not nearly as much as she would have liked.
