Dotson Salutes - Jayne Mansfield

Libra Girlfriend has been told by two different psychics that she was Jayne Mansfield in a previous life.



So today she decided she wanted to take a look at her old stomping grounds at 10100 Sunset Boulevard.

That's where Libra Girlfriend lived when she was Jayne Mansfield. The house was known as "The Pink Palace," and had this heart-shaped pool.



(The Band Nirvana would later write a song based on the heart-shaped pool, but they had to change the name of the song to "Heart Shaped Box" to avoid a lawsuit. Rumor has it that the reason Kurt Cobain was so tortured and depressed throughout his life is because he was never invited to swim in the heart-shaped pool.)



At any rate, the house is no longer there. The land and trees are still there, so that's pretty cool. But no house. It was torn down in 2002. All that's there now is a "Beware of Dog" sign.

Libra Girlfriend was sad that her house is no longer there. Fortunately, though, we were very close to this awesome ice cream and cookies store I'd heard about, so we went to it and got ice cream and cookies!



ON THIS GREAT DAY, JUNE 15, 2008, DOTSON SALUTES JAYNE MANSFIELD FOR HAVING LIVED AT 10100 SUNSET BOULEVARD, FOR HAVING A HEART-SHAPED POOL THAT WAS A MAJOR INFLUENCE ON THE CAREER OF KURT COBAIN, AND FOR BEING LIBRA GIRLFRIEND IN THIS LIFETIME.


Oh, yeah. This is that outfit I wore yesterday---



Now I'm going to read the book "Are You Really Too Sensitive?"

Umm, that picture isn't of Nirvana; it's Soul Asylum. Just an FYI.
