Caption: "The Red Carpet Treatment". A Warning to the Worshipped. A woman is surprised as she sees a man rolling out a red carpet in front of her. As the woman considers this, the man bows down in a worshipful stance. The woman imagines herself wearing a crown and she extends her foot to the carpet. The man then raises up with an evil grin on his face and yanks the carpet out from underneath her, sending her off-balance and into the air.

Caption: How To Pick Up Girls (Or anyone else). 1. Choose a safe place. Escape Route. 2. Be considerate of her feelings. Sometimes I feel like men see women as objects instead of people, like they don't care about who we are or what we have to say. Are you wearing a bra? 3. Pay attention to body language. Maybe she wants me to kiss her! 4. Express yourself directly. Wink wink nudge nudge innuendo hint. 5. Be prepared to hear "no". No. What!! I was nice and you rejected me anyway?! I should've been a jerk! 6. Be prepared to hear "yes". Yes! You SLUT!!

Caption: Sometimes Nina feels pressured by the people around her. Like right now she feels pressured to bank at the politically correct bank rather than the more economical, high-interest paying bank, because that bank is politically incorrect. WHAT?! You bank at the politically incorrect bank?! Don't you know how insensitive that is?! But ... But they pay interest! Well, she seemed like a good person, but she doesn't go the politically correct bank! Maybe in her next lifetime .... She's terrified to think that someone might find out she sometimes chews sugarfree grape bubble gum! Not only is that not politically correct, but it's also not macrobiotic, not karma-free, not natural and non-biodegradable! She also feels pressured to start digging astrology immediately. Like wow, man! All your planets are in Taurus! You're like totally earthy! Uh-huh. You don't say. Imagine that. Nina's biggest worry is that she's not merely different from the people around her; she's actually less spiritually evolved. She doesn't go to the politically correct bank, but only because she's a lower life form ... Perhaps in a millennium of two.....

Caption: "The R-Word". "Relationships". What a tired, old worn out topic. Nina would forget about them altogether if it weren't for people smooching everywhere she looks. Slurp. Drool. Slobber. Disgusting…I wish I were doing that…. Even not, Nina's brain leaps about wondering how she's going to get the relationship of her dreams. Cut that out! Wonder ponder ponder. Experience would suggest there in nothing you can do to "make" a relationship happen. At least not the kind of relationship you want. Yet Nina always wonders, is it really our of her control? Do these things really just happen on "God's terms"?? You bet your ass, honey. Voice o' god. Nina has the nagging fear that we hill eventually get into a romantic relationship, but with someone she doesn't like. Sigh. All those cute guys around. Too bad I'm stuck with Mondo here. Oh well, "beggars can't be choosers". So why does Nina yearn for a relationship when she knows what a pain there are? Pine yearn crave year. Cuz you're a dumbshit. Voice o' Negativity. Maybe it's due to those pesky hormones exercising their power... Go on! Hup! Get yerself a man! Hormones. Hey! ....Or perhaps, it's due to the deep yearnings of Nina's "child's within" for paternal love. Waaa! I want Daddy!!!! Shut up! Would you shut up!? Nina hasn't quite come to terms with all these forces at work within her, and so she feels a little strained. Strain strain uuurrghh.....But she knows there's no point in trying to tell her heart what to do. Look I'm drivin' this train, so quit hassling me! Nina thinks there's got to be an answer to all these relationship dilemmas. What's the @*?#!! answer?! Oh God No, not that !! The end?

Caption: A lot of people tell Nina: Don't be so negative! Be happy! Get a positive attitude and wear a big smile!! Flowers n' sunshine! Everything's beautiful! Dark cloud o' gloom. Ironically, these people don't make her happy. Be happy, dammit! I'm sick of your goddam negativity! Even so, she still tries to take their advice. Hi Nina! How are you? Just peachy! That's great! God. This is hell. Twitch, twitch. But she can't stand it!! Yeaargh!! In contrast, Nina also knows what genuine happiness feels like. La! Sproing! And she believes the truly happy people she knows don't hassle her for being negative.

Caption: Hippies. Nina always had this beautiful image of what hippies were like…Organic food! Peace and love! Natural fiber clothing! Probably because she grew up in the 70s and 80s, when all the 60s hippies went underground and became romantic legends...Okay, class! Now we're going to play tackle football! A hippie wouldn't stand for this torture! Peace and love! I protest violent activities in P.E.! So when Nina moved to Santa Cruz, she expected there'd be all these hippies to match her romantic images. But it was not to be. Poof. Romantic ideals. There were grouchy hippies...Everyone's stupid. Nobody knows anything. Food poisons the body...And trendy hippies...Tie-Dye boutique. Hey Starbeam! Dig the energy of this t-shirt! Like it is so cosmic...And college-age deadhead neo-hippies. Burgers and fries!! Peace and love! Hash and beer! So it goes. What does "hippie" really mean, anyway?

Caption: Housemates from Hell. Nina didn't mind at all when Sharyn's German boyfriend Jens came to stay at their little house in Santa Cruz. He's a nice guy, and they're such a cute couple…However, after a month, tensions began to build. It's good to know I live with quality people who share their space and don't put up walls around themselves. Uh-huh. Privacy peace & quiet = toast. Nobody said anything, though. Stab! Anything wrong? Death! Yeah! Kill. Blah blah. No. Nothing wrong, no problem. Soon Nina and her other housemates began talking about it. He's too low energy. All the extra noise and talking interferes with my meditations. He smokes and drinks and just bugs me. Jens eventually confronted Nina...Zo, I unterstand you are nut zateesfied vis me. You bet your ass! You play horrible music! You leave cigarette butts in the backyard! I have to pay rent to put up with that shit! Get lost, already! Er, I'm sorry, go ahead and stay here as long as you like. How could I say that? I'm despicable. It's good to know you're a quality person.
