59. actually that is not true I can have my pie and cake and Edith too
Sun Dec 30, 2012, 04:58 AM
Dec 2012

I can go into the diner in Twin Peaks and have a damn good piece of Cherry Pie and go into my Diner here in NJ and have a damn good piece of Blue Velvet Cake (as my diner serves both Blue Velvet and Red Velvet cake.) They also serve pie.

Therefore I can have my cake and pie, and also, on AntennaTV, I can still watch All in the Family.
Therefore I can have my pie and cake and Edith too.

enjoy a piece of Blue Velvet cake, while listening to Lana Del Rey from my favorite album of the year doing a version of the isabella Rossellini version of the song Blue Velvet from
David Lynch's Blue Velvet

meet pie

or perhaps I can have the above pie and cake and this Edith too
the legendary Edith Piaf, who if alive now, would be a welcome guest at this White House
and like her, since President Obama took office, I too have NO REGRETS
