EXTRACT FROM THE BOOK
" After all the Peace and Love in my veins, and then 27 years of Buddhism, it’s really not that easy to switch to bitch. Then, in the early 90’s, I spent another five years reading every New Age, American Indian, Mayan, UFO, channeled, crystal healing, psycho-energetic book that hit the market and look where it landed me. I’m more reclusive, cynical and belligerent than ever. And yet somehow I feel more comfortable with myself like this. I’m workin’ on a balance—half bitch/half good witch.

I’m listening to Daniel Lanois. He’s singing in French, which I semi-understand, and always love—but right now, it’s annoying the hell out of me. I must be in a really bad mood—even the French language is pissing me off.

It’s only four-thirty in the afternoon and I’m making my way through a fifth of vodka. Shit. I’ve really blown my moderation strategy. Down the tubes. Gone. Poof. Didn’t happen. I’m just too weak and useless to ever think I could do anything without going to a dramatic extreme. Nice try. Some kind of Buddhist golden mean I’ve never been able to master. What’s left? Exorbitance. Self-destructive habits. Anti-social behavior. Fatalistic outlook. This is your life. Queen for a Fucking Day. Well, bring on the crown. You want me to smile and wave to the masses from the back of some shiny new Lincoln Town Car convertible in my french roll, strapless formal and tiara? Been there, done that. It’s Miss Sylmar 1964. We’ll give the people their goddamned parade. But you’ve only got me until midnight. Then I turn back into your worst nightmare. "
