CGM: So you're a cute girl and you're reading Michel Houellebecq right now, that's super rad about cute girls and books, or anyone and books. I dig his style, he's very male I would say, it's hard to imagine anyone other than all black leather wearing rock and roll stars reading his thing. Where else do you like to go in the literary world?

A: You're right about Houellebecq, he's sexist in a way that only a French writer can get away with. Some older French man told me that it was a good that a young woman like me was reading The Elementary Particles - he said it would help me understand men - ick! I also just read Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthey, which I loved. At first I found it too gruesome but I think his style is really beautiful and, of course, totally original. Apparently he lives on a ranch in Texas and is really private. I've imagined him as this old rugged type, isolated in his home on the plains like a present-day Texan oracle. Of course this is all fantasy though, actually I think he was on Oprah so he clearly can't be that reclusive. Oh, and I also read the Brothers Karamazov this fall - one of those 'classics' that I felt obliged to read - but I liked it, plenty of angst. My mother just sent me two Margaret Laurence novels because she thinks that I should care more about Canadian literature, so I guess I should read those next.

CGM: What's good about being cute and having great style? Why is it so rare?

A: I would say that being cute is most useful when you get yourself into a tough situation and want someone else to fix it for you. This applies to a range of possible scenarios: wandering around a foreign city without a map and having to ask every other person for directions, missing your train and begging to be allowed onto the next one, losing your credit card and needing friends to buy you airplane tickets, dropping things, spilling tea, forgetting things, submitting forms late, losing other people's stuff - mostly when I've been caught in these and similar situations I've gotten out of them by smiling and pointing out that I have dimples. I'm not sure that it's rare to be cute but I think many people are wary of 'workin' their cuteness. I guess they're nervous that they won't be taken seriously or something.

CGM: Yeah, you gotta work it!! There are lots of cute girls out there, that's why I started a blog!!! Some just gotta realize that they are...pretty much every girl can be cute, unless they wanna be "hot," in which case, less interested. Being real is what it's all about, if you're real and you're cute, that's fine with me!! So why are gummy bears so great?

A: I have to say that gummies are great in general but worms outdo all the other possible animal shapes. It's the gumminess that makes them so good! When you chomp onto one end and tug at the other, ripping the worm in half is so satisfying because of that great elastic-y resistance. Oh, and the sour ones are the best. But I hate that they make your mouth-flesh feel raw when you eat too many.

Lizzy Libs, or: Thin Lizzy are my favorite band.

///AND now for
The Mad Libs version of CGM///




I asked Lizzy for:

A city/location
A color
A famous person
A type of food
An adjective
Another color
A mode of transportation
A person you admire
Another type of food
Another adjective
Another location
Another color
Another mode of transport
A favorite activity
A time of the year/season/holiday...

And here is the story that follows based on our collective brain signals and vibratory transmissions.///

The city of Beirut is the capital of Lebanon. The falafels over there resemble A Mauvy Shade of Pinky Russet, the type of color that Sylvia Plath wrote about when she wasn’t entranced by Lollipops or the summer’s Crinkly air. Amber hallucinations are prevalent, and the Piggyback Ride that one can take along the many waterways and through various attractions and wonderments are best done on the back of Charmaine. Porridge is a difficult breakfast item to obtain, and once acquired, you are looking at a Lukewarm bowl for chow time. Under Mike’s Bed in the old port, there exists a Violet container, a Pirate Ship of yesteryear that contains all the jewels and secrets of the Hellenistic period, and yet still, Putting Pennies on Railroad Tracks in Autumn is the favored activity for fun lovers.



Lizzy is someone who makes me smile almost daily, and we’ve never even met.!!! Aaaaand, that's Charmaine on the right!!!^^

Tara James and her Fancy Frames!




Tara is an incredibly powerful bright light. When you see her in public, she is shining. She takes really nice photos and makes super artworks.

///

CGM: I have this vision of you being at a convenience store and it's getting robbed, and you just kinda tap the would be dude and say, "umm, hey, could you not rob this store?" with a smile and a laugh, and then the guy would put his gun down, start crying, and run out of the shop...how would you handle that situation irl?

TJ: In real life, I would cower behind the chips in terror.

CGM: If someone gave you a bunch of money, enough to go anywhere in the world on an extravagant vacation, but you had to be back in one week, where would you go? So, blingin' times...

TJ: Brazil! Rainforest, colours, dancing, latin music, beaches, textiles, smokin' hot Brazilians, exotic birds.

///

CGM: How has being a cute girl helped you irl or online? Does your cuteness ever fail you?

TJ: Online, I think it has helped me in promoting photography/art. People like to look at cute people and to see what cute people are up to. In real life, I don't really think much about how it has helped me...Maybe I think more about how my charming personality and wit helps me, ha.

Every so often cuteness fails when you run into one of those demanding middle-aged women that are ready to slaughter anyone and everyone in their path.

CGM: Those ladies are problematic for so many reasons!! Their negative energy is super awful and lacerating, yeah. So who would you say is your biggest influence on your supremely witty personality? Is it a bunch of cooler older ladies that you knew, or is it built in?

TJ: Haha, that was sarcasm! But the wit that I do have is built in I think. I don't know where it came from.

I was just reminded - speaking of of cooler older ladies, when I was in Laos, I saw this super cool older women - thick black glasses rims, colourful clothes, mad style. I tried to sneak photos of her. I hope that I'm as cool as she looks when I'm her age.

CGM: Lookin' up!! SWEET, thanks Tara...anything else?

TJ: My anything else is a book suggestion: A Confederate General from Big Sur by Richard Brautigan.

TJ is such a wicked nickname, right?

Taryn, Tasteful and Taking!


Taryn and the Unicorn

One day Taryn met a for real life unicorn. She came across the unicorn while it was sick, so she fed it beer and Fruit Loops. The unicorn became Taryn's guardian angel, but in this dimension, not in Unicornland. Beer made the unicorn vivacious, and Fruit Loops brand cereal allowed the unicorn to absorb the goodness of the beer, which was not Pabst. All the flowers in the land of unicorn came into the universe and sprayed Taryn with a magical supercolourful gel that wards off all evilz. The unicorn pushed on into the night, one night in the future, and it never forgot Taryn, and all the love that she bathed the babely one-horned horse type in. Then she graduated from art school and lived happily ever after.

Rebecca Rules!


Rebecca is an old soul of a woman. Hundreds of thousands of years old, surely. She was bred by massive fish and then cannibalized bit by bit until she regenerated into the beautiful human being she is today. She makes wicked clothes with her elegant hands and has a sparkling personality that you want to be around whenever.

CGM: Tell womyn something that they need to know about men.

Rebecca: My advice for women is this: "they never just want to be your friend...and if there is no crotch attraction, no hope. If you're not attracted to his smell nothing else matters."

CGM: What about scent? What should ladies smell like?

Rebecca: Ladies should smell only like themselves, no fake stinky stuff a little mix of shampoo, deoderant, laundry detergent.. that's enough.

CGM: Food advice for the ladies, go!

Rebecca: Ok, ladies, here you go:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egg_in_the_basket

French toast is good too.. with berries and a stranger who you woke up beside.

CGM: What's the funniest thing you've ever seen or the dumbest thing that you hate that girls do?

Rebecca:
The funniest thing I've ever seen is girls thinking that tights are pants... that's also the dumbest thing that i hate that girls do. I feel like it's The Emperor's New Clothes. "Hey, the emperor is naked" = "hey, those girls aren't wearing any pants!"

http://www.tightsarenotpants.com/manifesto

CGM: Thanks for being FIRST!

Rebecca is also the title of an Alfred Hitchcock movie, but I like the real life version more.

I love my friends.

Fun ladies who are easy on the eyes, this blog will be dedicated to you. It's for cute girls to give advice to other cute girls, I'll just conduct the interviews. I'm a celibate babe magnet.

So, I'll post a photo, no skin, just smiles, and some words about them, and an interview. I will be focusing on my friends who make things and do stuff. Yeah, I could have also called this FUN WOMYN, but purple.
