…My puppy is spending so much time in my office with me that it’s beginning to smell a bit like a pet store in here.  Definitely need to get some air freshener.

…Here are three things I learned last week:

#1. After 72 hours, you forget 95% of everything you’ve heard

#2. Cities with the highest percentages of working artists:
1. L.A. - 4.9%
2. San Francisco - 4.3%
3. Seattle 4.1%

#3. Chris Paul of the LA Clippers basketball team signed a six year deal paying him $107 million. (Salaries for athletes always astound me.)

And here are some pithy things my friends on Facebook had to say last week:

-if you think there's anything better than watching pelicans fucking divebombing the ocean for fish, you can go straight to hell.

-Some people are so intent on taking away your gun, if you don't hand it over they'll shoot you.

-PSA: Being a "writer" does not grant you a pass to be a fuckwad.

-Katie caught an errant bat flying around our house tonight with two rods and a sheer curtain. Yep. My bitch is a bad-ass-- a curtain wielding, flying Dracula killing, bad-ass! And she will f*** you up!

-My mission tonight is to collect bunny poop and send it in the overnight mail. You think I'm kidding but I'm not.

Lastly, here are some things Marilyn Monroe once had to say (they’re pretty sharp):
-"Ever notice how ‘What the hell’ is always the right answer?"
-"Creativity has got to start with humanity and when you’re a human being, you feel, you suffer."
-"I don’t want to make money. I just want to be wonderful."
-"A career is wonderful thing, but you can’t snuggle up to it on a cold night."
-"Most importantly, keep smiling. Because life is a beautiful thing, and there’s so much to smile about."
-"It’s not true I had nothing on, I had the radio on."
-"Imperfection is beauty. Madness is genius. It is better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."
-"Hollywood is a place where they’ll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss, and fifty cents for your soul."
-"It’s often just enough to be with someone. I don’t need to touch them. Not even talk. A feeling passes between you both. You’re not alone."
-"To all the girls that think you’re fat because you’re not a size zero, you’re the beautiful one, its society who’s ugly."
-"The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead or smiling into your eyes or just staring into space."
-"I’ve often stood silent at a party for hours listening to my movie idols turn into dull and little people."
"Suicide is a person’s privilege. I don’t believe it’s a sin or a crime. --"It’s your right if you want to, though it doesn’t get you anywhere."
-"Beneath the make-up and behind the smile, I’m just a girl who wishes for the world."
-"The truth is I’ve never fooled anyone. I’ve let people fool themselves. They didn’t bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn’t argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn’t. When they found this out, they would blame me for disillusioning them and fooling them."
-"Please don’t make me a joke. End the interview with what I believe. I don’t mind making jokes, but I don’t want to look like one… I want to be an artist, an actress with integrity… If fame goes by, so long, I’ve had you, fame. If it goes by, I’ve always known it was fickle. So at least it’s something I experienced, but that’s not where I live."
-"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so you can appreciate them when they’re right. You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself. And sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
-"I’m selfish, impatient, and insecure. I make mistakes. I am out of control and at times, hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you don’t deserve me at my best."
-"Sex is part of nature. I go along with nature."
-"People respect you because they feel you’ve survived hard times and endured and although you’ve become famous, you haven’t become phony.
-"I restore myself when I’m alone."

-"Men who think that a woman’s past love affairs lessen her love for them are usually stupid and weak. A woman can bring a new love to each man she loves, providing there are not too many."--Marilyn Monroe
