Lolling, lounging and luxuriating in L.A.

Re: “Rally today to reopen government

Park City's snow is whiter and deeper than even the pix on your Inaugural Ball thread (below). And much better dressed. And more benign.

Still no Robert Redford sightings (rumor: he's upgraded his wig), but Sundance isn't quite officially underway for a few days.

Meanwhile, 9 MLK quotes you won't hear mainstream media cite today.…

Re: “The Sunday open line

Cold outside - and SNOW! But your Norma's all cozy at the St. Regis Deer Valley, schmoozing with other early arrivals for Sundance. Pricey, but I'm not paying. (The whole point of being in show business, besides the Art part.)

No sign of Bob (Redford) yet. Can't wait to give performance of my life with "impromptu" line reading of, "You're looking great!" - when actually dying to query why an 82 year old in his bracket buys full wigs at Party City instead of from Raffaele Mollica or Amanda Miller?

Wouldn't you . . . ?………

Re: “Report: Trump instructed Cohen to lie to Congress

Though not so much fun that your Norma hasn't time for just one more piece of elucidation from outside her Razorbabies' parochial box. Jesus H. Christ.…

Re: “Report: Trump instructed Cohen to lie to Congress

No, Mueller hasn't "denied" the BuzzFeed report.


Here's just ONE source who understands Mueller and what's going on. There are more, but Park City's too much fun to bother doing my Razorbabies' work for them.…

Re: “Nursing home-to-judiciary money trail: Bribery case links to Supreme Court justice

Would one of my beloved Razorbabies please tally the number of Commandments these Christians have broken in this sick, ugly "collusion" to rip off Arkansans in their final days? Not to mention federal (taxpayer) funds?

Your Norma stays well out of the Christian loop. Same with Scientologists. And Republicans. Greedy, lying, crooked, hypocritical, irrational, bigoted, humorless, talentless cult fanatics and wannabes, all.

Yeah, yeah. They're all coming from a place of love and peace and world betterment.…………………

What a crock. Look where religion's gotten us and STILL tearing people and nations apart over Iron Age tribal superstitions.

Thank god Generation Z caught on. They've abandoned religion almost entirely.…

Re: “Thursday: Headlines and the open line

If your Norma had pearls, she'd be clutching them. As is, of course, Miss Lindsey ("Linda" to D.C. intimates).

Last Sunday the Chairman of the Democratic Coalition, Jon Cooper, tweeted:
"A Republican just told me that he doubts @LindseyGrahamSC is kowtowing to Trump (and indirectly Putin) because he's being blackmailed over his sexual orientation (an open secret) or even financial corruption. Rather, he thinks it probably involves some pretty serious sexual kink.

"By the way, as an openly gay man myself, I couldn't care less about Lindsey Graham's sex life (gay, straight or otherwise). However, Graham is the Senate Judiciary Chair and theres a strong likelihood that he's being blackmailed by the Russians. If so, that needs to be revealed."

Then on Tuesday MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle smirked:

"It could be that Donald Trump or somebody knows something pretty extreme about Lindsey Graham. We're gonna have to leave it there."

Whatever you do, my Razorbabies, I beseech you: don't pollute your minds imagining what "serious sexual kink" and Senatrice Lindsey Graham might look like.

Just know that somewhere a Motel 6 housekeeping crew's spilled to the National Enquirer.

Personally, your Norma's eager to hear the excuse for abruptly resigning - because there IS no family for the never-married Baptist turncoat to "spend more time with."

Re: “Wednesday: Headlines and the open line

Your Norma's just an entertainer. Performing (with other players) stories writers have written about love and hate, war and peace, people of all ages and colors and nations, triumphs and tragedies, laughter and tears - that still others have produced and directed and photographed and distributed - in the most collaborative art form the world has ever known.

What are you doing with your lives, my Razorbabies? Democrats or Republicans, religious or not, in sickness or in health?

Making humanity and your world better for your having lived? Worse? For all or merely some? Getting along? Spreading love and knowledge and understanding and respect for each other and our planet? Or hurting, exploiting and destroying the greatest civilization the world has ever known?

Here's what Paul in Thailand, another entertainer, is doing with HIS life: lovingly giving something beautiful, created 300 years ago, trans-species.…

Show business is my life. What's yours?

Off to Sundance.
