Where Do You Go To Go Away?

“Where Do You Go to Go Away” by Gale Garnett


  1. V-Grrrl

    I recommend Brussels–or Virginia. 🙂

    I’m still thinking aobut starting the commune for Half Married People with Half-Assed Careers but Big Hearts.


  2. Ash

    V-grrrl: Can I come and live in your commune?

  3. Diane Mandy

    I’ve been where you are. I am really sorry you’re hurting right now.

  4. better safe than sorry

    i’d go to my mom’s, wish yours was closer, i’d still think about going.

  5. Long Story Longer

    Crap. I hate that feeling. Syracuse for a month? You’re welcome to.

  6. steppingoverthejunk

    Ah dude. I wish I’d been able to see you whilst in Cali. I’m sorry…as a sidenote, I am grateful I didnt live in a time where the bras made my boobs look like that. Write soon.

  7. psychomom

    When you find that place, send me the directions. (U)

  8. Elisabeth

    Sometimes, it’s better to turn the page than to read the same old one over and over again. Yet, I am very sorry that you are going through those heart-wrenching times.

    To Steppingoverthejunk: Damn, I always kind of wished that they still made bras that would make my boobs look like that!

    To V-Grrrl: Love the commune concept. As someone who lives in permanent separation from a husband who is actually now a good friend, and also has a serious companion (now living at some distance from where she resides), I would like to know if I could qualify to join.

    I know I’m supposed to be hurting, but just as a sidenote: I would totally do this Gale Garnett, if she’s still around. She’s like Beyonce of her time. I love that she rubs the Devil’s crotch (or is that just my imagination?)

    Somehow..this is the era I see you in Neil. It made that clip somwhat sad for me to watch.

    I went and looked at the jellyfish exhibit at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

    And up to Calistoga…near Napa…for a mud bath, a good massage and a good cry.

    oh yeah..and a good bottle of wine.

  12. Miss Britt

    I go to the tub. And I lock the doors.

  13. bookfraud

    yes, I believe she rubs satan’s crotch, when she does that stripper move, undulating up and down.

    i wonder if satan is hung?

    be a man and go to a bar and drink until you explode. that’s where i would go.

  14. Lilymane

    You could go girl crazy or just plain crazy for a while – or you could come EAST for some Southern hospitality. If you absolutely have to stay where you are, I recommend swimming in the Pacific. Screaming underwater is therapeutic and mother ocean can absorb a lot of tears. So sorry Neilochka. Y’all are in my thoughts and prayers. Peace.
    PS – I’m quietly in favor of the boobs but you’d best not talk about rubbing the devil’s crotch if you visit the South. Just saying.

  15. Julie

    Ireland. But it’s been 13 years.

    I recommend it highly though. It’s the perfect place to lose yourself.

    Many hugs.

  16. Savy

    Apparently we need to organize a group escape vacation!

  17. piglet

    i so like the ireland idea.

    i cannot tell you where i go to go away, or else someone would find me.

    i think bin laden uses the place when i’m not there. (that’s how come dubya can’t find he.)

  18. MCS

    I wish you lived nearby.
