I’ll just die if I don’t get this recipe.

Gregory and I rang in the New Year cozy, sweet, and low-key at the tragically fashionable mountain-top lair of the lovely Miss Jackie Beat — where we lounged about in our pajamas, kissed the lips of two sweet doggies, munched tasty dim sum, guzzled Diet Coke, belly laughed, belly cried, and, as the highlight of our evening and at Miss Beat’s wise suggestion, watched in awestruck amazement at the feminist allegory, Penthouse lighting, and high 1970s camp of The Stepford Wives (ORIGINAL VERSION, of course!), a film which I was previously warned would most likely SUCK. Not only did it NOT suck, it now joins the pantheon of films — including among others, Rosemary’s Baby (which, probably NOT coincidentally, was written by Ira Levin, the same guy who wrote Wives) and Valley of The Dolls — with which I am completely fucking OBSESSED. Having a brilliant drag queen with impeccable taste as one of your closest friends is like being artistically and culturally mentored by God himself — or rather, GODDESS.

So, much love and many thanks once again to Miss Jackie Beat, for not only a lovely, lovely sashay into 2011, but for leading a horticulture…and for truly making her think.

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 hipmama.com. 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.
