VISA717 Exposed OR I Left My Heart in Kevin Spacey

I woke up with a migraine. I'm fighting it likes to take its time going away.

I think my tire has a valve-stem leak. That's all I know about it - I sure as hell can't fix it.

Today is Brad Renfro's birthday. You know, the kid from The Client. How sad to peak at 11. He's 23 now. The pic is from his glory days.

And now, I'm opening myself up to embarrassment. Because I get asked this quite often, it's time to divulge why I use "VISA717." It all started with The Client. It was the first John Grisham book I read, and I also watched the movie. Well, being and young thing I was, I developed a ridiculous crush on Brad Renfro. Give me a break, I was a pre-teen. Well, in the movie, he steals this guy's VISA and orders "20 of your largest supremes" and then - wait for it - he kisses the credit card. Sigh. I almost forgot what it's like to be a silly girl. And 7 and 17 are my favorite numbers.

Tomorrow is one of my favorite days: Kevin Spacey's birthday. Yes, I'm weird, but I like to spend July 26 watching Kevin Spacey movie. What can I say - the man has a knack for doing good movies, and he's one damn fine actor.

Alas, it is time to continue trying to sleep off this migraine, which is Wendy talk for trying to coerce my brain not to explode into lots of little tiny pieces, because that's sure as hell what it feels like is going to happen.

Last night, I had a vivid dream about Lindsey's ferrets. I've never actually seen them, but in my dream, they were cute. Anyone want to offer a psychoanalysis?

Song of the Day: "Fade to Black" by Dire Straits. But I don't want my MTV.

I wonder where you are tonight
you're probably on the rampage somewhere
you have been known to take delight
in gettin' in somebody's hair
and you always had the knack
fade to black

I bet you already made a pass
I see a darkened room somewhere
you run your finger round the rim of his glass
run your fingers through his hair
they scratch across his back
fade to black

well maybe it's all for the best
but I wish I'd never been lassooed
maybe it's some kind of test
I wish I'd never been tattooed
or been to hell and back
fade to black
