The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys

The Mistress had a sex dream about David Bowie last night, one month after his passing into the stardust.

This is the sixth (sexth?) time I've dreamed about him since January 10th.

We didn't make love just once. Oh, nooooo. Four times over the course of one dream. And it was FABULOUS.

In the final scene, I was chatting to a woman when I spotted David returning for the night from the Ziggy Stardust Tour. I told her, "I gotta go. David's back from his performance and I've got to fuck him while he's still wearing his high heels!"

Because The Mistress loves a man who can carry off a pair of high heeled boots or shoes.

Don't you?

Please Excuse Our Dust

The Bad News: The Mistress continues to toil at work six days a week which leaves precious little time for blogging.

The Good News: All that time to and fro on public transit means she can READ MORE BOOKS for The 2016 Infomaniac Book Challenge!

We hope you Bitches have cracked open a book or two since the beginning of the New Year. Remember that we'll be checking in with you around March 1st to find out what you've been reading.

Recommended Reading

Still trying to decide what to read during The 2016 Infomaniac Book Challenge?

Based on titles I've read over the past couple of years, The Mistress offers a few suggestions. See if something here strikes your fancy (besides the man in the photo, above.)  

Not My Father's Son: A Memoir by Alan Cumming (2014)...

You may know Alan Cumming as Eli Gold on The Good Wife. Or as the master of ceremonies in Cabaret. (If you haven't seen him in Cabaret, give yourself a treat and click here.) Or as the camp steward, Sebastian Flight in the Britcom, The High Life. Or maybe you've seen him introduce Masterpiece Mystery! for PBS.

So now that we've established just a few of his on-screen accomplishments, let's add author to the list.

In Not My Father's Son, Alan shares the emotional story of his complicated relationship with a father who psychologically and physically abused him. Not for the faint of heart, the descriptions are absolutely Dickensian.

Interwoven into the tale is how he goes about solving a deeply buried family secret. 

Though emotionally draining and at times disturbing, Alan relates his memoir with his signature wit and opts for a positive outlook.

"The truth can hurt," says Cumming, "but not knowing can hurt more."

Can't We Talk about Something More Pleasant? by Roz Chast (2014)...

If you're a fan of Roz Chast's angst-ridden cartoons in the New Yorker magazine, try her memoir on for size, in the form of this graphic novel.

Roz deals with the decline and care of her aging parents with dark humour and a sense of the absurd. You'll laugh. You'll cry. And if you or "a friend" are going through a similar situation, this book may bring much needed comic relief.

And it's all illustrations so it's like reading a comic book. Yay!

The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir Who Got Trapped in an Ikea Wardrobe by Romain Puértolas (English translation published 2014)...

The title perfectly describes what happens in this whimsical novel. Looking for a light, fun read? You've found it.
