"old is hot, but smelly lingers"

anthony cortese, a.k.a. snowdog101, is the shit. and i love him to pieces.


you know when you get the giggles? and the stoopidest, silliest things make laugh til you pee? well, much like with my friend joe, anthony and i seem to hit the same groove when it comes to the sillies. and how do we do this? through the ubiquitous, much-loved, much-maligned text message, as we wend our separate ways into and out of manhattan, me on a train hurtling along the hudson, him on a bus from jersey.


sometimes we talk about work. sometimes we talk about life. sometimes we talk about nothing at all.


me: "i just saw the oldest woman in the universe!"

him: "she still seeing barry?"

me: "no, she ended it. the drinking, you know."

him: "he's young. he'll bounce back."

me: "he couldn't keep up with her. it's what pushed him off the wagon. well, that and the thing with the dog."

him: "the guide dog? sure. you're NEVER supposed to play with them when they're on duty. everybody knows that."

me: "well it broke barry's heart, is what it did."

him: "if he got through his ugly split with the smelliest woman in the universe he can get through anything. old is hot, but smelly lingers."

    we all need people that make us pee our pants every single day. then the Depends department would be sold out... for a good reason. & God - smelly does linger! fo-eva.

    Can't wait to visit your stream tomorrow for book highlights! Your running text dialouge is hilarious. I have a flickr friend who texts me; can't even remember how it got started. Too funny.

    Smelly lingers. Love it!

    Cool. That's what it looks like on your side. The envelope is a very realistic likeness of the ACTUAL envelope I send the text messages to you in.

    I have always dreamed of creating a catchphrase this classy!

    I'm reading a wonderful book , "The Emperor of Scent" by Chandler Burr. Among other fascinating thingds I have read, was the memorable fact that honey and urine smell remarkably similar. Ask torbak, he's reading it too. Oh, and are any other perfume whores up for a new Whores pool?
    Fragrance Whores? Think it over. I'm off to get some toast and honey, me...
