I was going to title this “Letting the cat out of the bag” but, frankly, I think we’re all better than that.

I just went to throw away the empty sack Victor left on the counter after he unpacked the groceries* but then I heard the bag rustling and looked at Victor and said, “Sir?  Have you left your bags unattended at any time?”

ferris hermit crab

And then Ferris Mewler gave me that panicked guilty look of “OMG, WTF?  KNOCK FIRST” and I was like, “Hang on.  What did you do?”  And that’s when I looked in and realized he’d ripped open a catnip mouse in there and was having a small, paranoid kitty freak-out.

It was like a tiny paper hotbox and now I think he needs rehab.

These are the things people never warn you about cat ownership.

*I changed the original way I’d written this because in real life it was a sack from a resale shop that Victor left on the counter after he was like, “No, no, no.  Do not leave that decapitated head on the kitchen counter.  You take that with you” and he pulled it out of the sack and I had to carry it around with me for an hour while I tried to find a good spot for her.  I changed the head (and also a vintage scythe) to “groceries” because I thought people would be too distracted to enjoy the cat picture, and then I’d have to explain that the vintage head is not made of real human (except for the hair) and that at $25 she was cheap at twice the price.

As an aside, Hailey and I are currently debating the best style for Hedy Lamarr (I’m open to other names if you have something more fitting) and I think this is an excellent place for a poll:

Shit I made in my shop (Named “EIGHT POUNDS OF UNCUT COCAINE” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):

Shit that I’m vaguely involved with on the internets:

Shit-I-didn’t-come-up-with-but-wish-I-did-because-it’s-kind-of-awesome:

Shit you should buy or steal because it’s awesome:

This week’s wrap-up is brought to you by David Robert, author of Wanderlush.  “When David, self-proclaimed anxiety-ridden introvert, convinces himself that he’s dying of ass cancer, he invites his delightfully unpredictable, Xanax-popping, chardonnay-swilling mother on a series of international “good-bye” vacations. By doing so, he unwittingly opens a Pandora’s box of hilarious and humiliating events that include digging his mom out of a rain gutter in Costa Rica and being dragged across the Arabian Desert by a psychotic camel named Forrest Hump. As the vacations unfold, David’s mother shares a secret that will change everything.”  I’m buying it.  You probably should too.

I opened the door, walked over to the dumpster, threw in the trash and turned to walk away…..and had a damn heart attack. THERE WERE HEADS ALL ALONG THE FLOOR UP AGAINST THE WALL!!!!! My life flashed before my eyes as I imagined a maniac with a machete coming out of the shadows to add my noggin to his cranium collection. Obviously, that didn’t happen. Turns out the beauty supply store in the strip mall was going out of business. I guess they thought it would be better to line the heads up along the floor for funsies than actually toss them in the dumpster.

So this past June I saw him in DC and hung around forever waiting for him, and was able to tell him that it was four years to the day. He remembered me from the show in Charlottesville last year and gave me a huge hug and chatted with me for a couple of minutes about some of his new stuff.

  118. As for the head: it belongs to the figure who appears headless on the cover of every third fiction book written for women.

  120. You hit the nail on the head with Hedy Lamarr, though Maxine Headroom was the first name that popped in MY head when I read you were open to suggestions. What can I say, I’m a product of the ’80’s.

  122. Your poll should have an option for “all of the above”. Seriously – Hedy rocks both looks – she is a 40’s glamour puss.

  126. Hedwig/Headwig. Then, you could get a smaller, somewhat irritated looking head and name it “The Angry Itch”. Also, I love the scarf because she looks like Rosie the Riveter in it & she strikes me as a machinist.

  127. Just a guess, but did you picmonkey that photo of yourself with the new comic theme feature? I freaking LOVE those new options.

    Please only have babies with Victor. You and Victor create much lovelier children than you and Mindy Kaling would.

  133. I just had to tell you about the mannequin heads my grandma had when I was little. She owns a salon and a cosmetology school. The heads she had were the ones where the faces were split open from the base of the neck to the back of the ear on both sides so that they could be changed out when the hair was done. we used to peel their faces off and wear them as masks and creep out our parents by hiding in random places at grandmas on Sundays and jumping out. It was silence of the mannequins, and it was awesome good fun,
