It’s in the singing of the street corner choir…

RIP, Queenie. This photograph was taken by Bunny Yeager, who sold it to Hef for use in Playboy, but like the first “centerfold” of Marilyn, was never actually taken under the auspices of the Playmate of the Month title.

— it is Bettie Page! but her eyes are wonky as hayull; why did they not reshoot this picture?

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Care for me, I am not as prickly as I seem.

Need to paste this to my face for the holidays.

To: my wonderful family of loving, noisy, boisterous, pushy, adoring extroverts.

From: the one in the kitchen making fifty cheese trays so as to avoid the heart-to-heart chats you desperately want to corner me for.

I am not a humbug, I’m actually very into the holidays and enjoy seeing everyone open gifts, but I feel awkward receiving them and your attention and that will never change. I am not trying to ruin Christmas by not enjoying being photographed, but I do love taking pictures, so slap my kid on your lap and give me a grin. I am very in to hearing about what you’ve been up to, but yes, I am still getting a divorce, and no I emphatically sure as fuck do not wish to talk about it; that is to do with my feelings and not to do with you and your overtures of discussion. I am sure you are a great listener, I am just not much of a great talker. I have huge piles of love and optimism in my heart but I also have to hide from big displays of emotion. Let’s all focus on understanding each other instead of projecting expectations. I will try not to resent your demands of pictures and prying questions and recognize them for the signs of love that they are, and you let me have a little airpsace.
