Oh, snap. . .

When mom says your middle name, and you know you're in all kinds of trouble.

In which I finally confront spellcheck. . .

Needy people all up in my email. . .

I was just deleting the mail in my spam folder and saw an email, supposedly from some hot girl. The subject line was "I've lost my panties again."
And I'm just like, "Bitch, how am I supposed to help with your ADHD? I hardly have a handle on my own."

In which I try Snapchat for the first time. . .

I turn 43 on Monday, so I decided to join the digital age. I tried Snapchat. Got my rainbow headphones on, my heart's beating like a kick drum and I'm sharing a glimpse of my mermaid soul.

Song of the Day: "Into the Light" by Siouxsie and the Banshees

I've got another song of the day because it began playing in my mind, unbidden, after listening to a new Lana del Rey joint. It's "Into the Light" by Siouxsie and the Banshee off their album Juju. It has such a memorable opening and Siouxsie's voice and words are everything.

I was only six when this album came out. Being into Siouxsie and the Banshees when I was in high school made me feel like I belonged to an exclusive club, full of dark dreams and fairydust. In fact, I still feel that way.

Song of the Day: "Groupie Love" by Lana del Rey

Isn't it nice to see Lana Del Rey smiling on the cover of this album? Here's my song of the day, her "Groupie Love." That's someone named A$AP Rocky rapping up in there. I'd know who he was if I was more abreast of the hip hop world.

BTW, isn't homegirl prolific? I just looked it up and Lana Del Rey is 32. She's released five albums and who knows how many singles since she busted out with Born to Die in 2012. She's got a deep catalogue and is crafting a really unique musical legacy.

Plus, she makes me really tempted to make myself uncomfortable and apply some fake eyelashes—even if they may be slightly obscured behind my glasses—because she's always done up so pretty.
