October 2012


If I stood in the streets of downtown Toronto every day dressed as a glam mouse, yelling clever things, after a while someone would put my picture in the newspaper, or interview me and I’d become a phenomenon like the Naked Cowboy in Time Square who is out there performing today despite hurricane Sandy’s imminent arrival. I’m not looking for notoriety but are notoriety and fame not just flip sides of the same coin?

Me and Lena Dunham

Lena’s not my first that could have been me object but in this case the similarities hit you right in the face, don’t they? I’m sure some of you are thinking are you kidding Aviva? That’s the best you can do? Why not Nora Ephron or Fran Lebowitz since this is all in the realm of fantasy anyway? No it's not.

Duking it out with my blog

Blog: “You ingrate, how could you just leave me hanging around waiting? I thought you cared. I thought you were punctual, reliable, thoughtful.”

Aviva: “I am. I was. I am. And anyway, it’s not like you’re on a street corner somewhere, exposed to the elements.”

B: “You’re right, sitting in cyberspace, open to everyone, wearing last month’s outfit is not exposure at all.”
