August was a dry month here in Dogtown. We usually get loads of rain during August. Lake Junebug is sadly depleted, but the rains doth fall since September arrived. Lake Junebug will make a comeback.
|Lake Junebug at its finest.|
Wow! I do look good. I'm glowing with good health.
It's all that yoga I do.
Recently, Willy Dunne Wooters asked if I had ever seen that movie that has music and the movie star who used to be married to another movie star was in it. Can you give me another hint? I inquired.
She's Australian, he said.
Moulin Rouge! I said.(WDW and I play this sort of guessing game a lot. I'm getting pretty darn good at reading his mind.) But, no, I've never seen it, I added.
WDW said, You should get that movie from Netflix. It's really good.
Okay, I said. Baz Luhrmann directed Moulin Rouge! I'll watch that with you if you'll watch his first feature film with me. It's Strictly Ballroom.
A little more than a week ago we watched Moulin Rouge! As it ended, I said, That's a masterpiece!
Don't you think that's a masterpiece? WDW asked about thirty seconds later. (Remember the deaf as a post thing? Interestingly, he can hear––it's a miracle!––if I say the words "sex" or "make love" or "let's go to bed to see what pops up.") Yes, it's a masterpiece, I agreed.
A couple of days ago we watched Strictly Ballroom. It's not a masterpiece, but I like it very much, as did WDW.
What I really want to know is why Baz Luhrmann is called "Baz" when his name is Mark Anthony Luhrmann? Baz is a cool nickname, whatever it means. I might decide to change my name to Baz. No doubt I'll start making brilliant, but unusual, movies.
I must leave you now so I can begin work on a script. It should be done in fifteen or twenty years. Don't hold your breath.
And that's the news from Dogtown, where the dogs are good looking, the dogs are strong, and the dogs are smarter than average.
Infinities of love,
Janie Baz Junebug
