July = A Month of Love
Juki is the most fantastic poodle in the world! This scruffy little love-muffin was rescued by my old neighbors on Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake just before the 4th of July in 2010. And they gave him to me! It was love at first sight and we have been living co-dependently idyllically happily-every-after for seven years!

July = A Month of Loss
Two years ago this weekend I broke up with my hot young stud-muffin boyfriend of almost three years. I kicked him out of my studio and delivered all of his belongings to his mother. I know this was the right thing to do but I’ve been upset about it ever since. And all I wanted him to do was either get a job or stop failing out of community college or stop having mental problems! I still miss my idealized vision/version of him. My friends and my therapist say I was just addicted to the sex. I say WTF? Emotions are often confusing and illogical. So I made a movie about this breakup called Broken Hearts are For Assholes. It’s NSFW so I will not post it here – follow this link if you want to watch it.

I miss the old Lucile house. I had to leave there in summer 2014 because the landlord wanted to sell the house and he wanted me out. The house sold and was torn down many months later and eventually a 1.7 million dollar faux mid-century modern home was built in its place. I received $10,000 but $10,000 is not enough to heal a broken heart.

When we are with each other
There is a beauty in that being
And then there is nothing
You know what this guy in the bar
Said to me the other night?
“I’d fuck you in a minute Nancy Spungeon”
