Shit SB Says to Her Good Friend, West Hollywood Voyeur

COOLEST LAMP EVER IN THE HISTORY OF MAN EVER (except for maybe my Grandmother Peg's lamp, which had a naked ship's siren on the base, with exposed boobs, and a lampshade fit for a whore house, complete with gold fringes). You'd have liked Grandma. She also had a habit of wallpapering bathrooms in red and white candy stripe and even papering the back of the goddamn door, which made things a might confusing when one was inebriated. Bitch had style!

[Grandma said, "See Grandma is just like Andy Warhol," when she showed me the papered-over door. SB comes from cool people.]

Link to the very fab West Hollywood Voyeur. Check it out, motherfuckers!

Ms. Moon said...

Nice. But I really wish I could see a picture of your Grandmother's lamp.

It makes me dizzy just thinking about being in a bathroom like that.

Kathleen Scott said...

I KNOW I'd love your Grandma. She has gumption. Is she a Texan?

Syd said...

Was your grandmother from the South? She sounds like a cool campy woman from Savannah.

Dear SB, I love that she papered the back of the door!! xx

I’d like to have met her, but I would have made sure to have a leak before getting Brahms and Liszt.

All the best, Boonie

loving the idea of candy stripes..Grandma sounds great did she throw wild parties too???

grace said...

You do come from cool people. I come from drunk people who wore kilts properly and painted their legs (and balls?) green on St. Patty's day.

PS. Your word verification for me today was "repent." Is it trying to tell me something?

Kathleen Scott said...

I thought I left a comment here yesterday...must be losing it.

Grandma Peg is awesome. We should all grow up to be her.

We're going bat-watching tomorrow. Hope you have a good weekend too.

Young at Heart,
Not wild parties. Just lots of food get-togethers. And she had a highball or two every X-mas and got pretty damn bossy. She once told my Aunt to get out of her chair. Laugh.

Love,

SB

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Grace,
There is a reason we are friends, babe. Laugh.

Love you!

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Have fun bat watching, Kathleen. Sounds like a damn fun time to me!

Love you and Denny,

SB

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Ms. Moon,
And I wish I had one. My Uncle Gene said we should have kept the lamp, because nobody would ever have believed how tacky it was without seeing it. He was right.

Love you.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Kathleen,
She was not Texan, but she was a southerner from a monied family in Mississippi. They once owned 10,000acres.

Love you!

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Syd,
I guess my response to Kathleen answered your question, too.

Much love,

SB

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Boonie,
I hear you. Laugh.

Findon said...

My favourite place to pass out in was the bath, so with your grans wallpaper waking up would have been one heck of an experience. Thanks for watching over me, I heard you. Love Findon

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Findon,
You are loved.

Thank You for the Link!
Okay here is MY grandma story! We would call her the Plant Bandit! She would put clippers in her bra and when she thought no one was looking she would steal the neighbors flowers! If we took a walk I would always have to have a big coat on with pockets cause you know we would be stealing the neighborhoods gardens! When they would knock on her door, she would say " Oh no it's not me, I've just been knitting all day! Grandma was a good liar! I loved her so!!!
Our grandma's could have had a good laugh together!

Lori said...

I dig Grandma's style. You do come from some stylish folks my dear. Good to be back, missed reading you. Maybe I shall decorate my bathroom in some kind of funky way....hmmmmm...love you....

Sarcastic Bastard said...

West Hollywood Voyeur,
I love your grandma. She sounded like a damn hoot! Yes, our grandmas would dig each other. Definitely.

Love you. Hope you have a great week. Give my regards to Hollywood. Laugh.
