Sometimes, you just have to pee in the sink. - Charles Bukowski

 

About me:

Loud, smart, fast, greedy, generous, potty mouth, fun, tough.

 

A gypsy child raised by soul and bee-bop loving parents, I fought the Punk Wars and ended up with a day job. Now passionate about repetitive guitar riffs, deep southern soul, unhinged gospel, classic 70s rock, real country, and pretty much everything except jazz, which, given some informed guidance, I may yet warm to.

 

When not working or pretending to, I relentlessly search for the perfect pub; collect fabric and embroidery thread and yarn and sometimes make things with it; wish I knew how to cast a spell to slow down time; miss my beautiful cat Pearl; laugh at my wonderful dog Billie; cry about the theft of my gold Rover SD1 3500 V8 (which was bankrupting me but love is blind); try to find new places to store books and vinyl and fabric and thread; cuss while doing embroidery; drive too fast; laugh too loud; try to learn from my many mistakes; attempt, but mostly fail, to keep good friends close, emotionally and geographically speaking.

 

Having lived in Virginia, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Staten Island, upstate New York, New Jersey, Philly, SF, and London, my accent tends to depend on who I am talking to.

 

I met my husband on Flickr. No shit.

Doubtless savage, yet somehow... pink. The flickrita known as - yes! - Savage Pink trawls and captures the dark rock 'n' roll underbelly of this great city so those who are too spineless to stray from the safety of a Sunday-supplement work-life balance don't have to. A shutterbug with cluttered lugs (just look at that record collection) she drives (drove) a geezer's car to where the breezes are. Her all-American enthusiasm shines through every frame and her lust for life and London's lavish lure is irresistibly infectious. Lovely hair, lovely teeth and a lovely smile. You go, girl. Wish I knew you.
