Cathy Seipp Died A Year Ago Today

Stupid bitch. My social life has collapsed since then. I can no longer go to the LA Press Club with any feeling of belonging. I’m just a stray dog again. I need my owner. I want my special doggy bowl and doggy pillow and I want to go for a walk.

Cathy was one of the few people who enjoyed my grotesque sense of humor. We were like soulmates. She got me. I loved her. People thought we lived together. "That’s a big compliment to you!" she said when I told her that rumor.

As I walked around yesterday, I kept thought I was running into her. There was a woman with that spiky platinum blonde hair. Another chick looked like Cathy in her twenties. But in the end I was just on a long lonely walk to nowhere.

Lewis Fein says: "Sandra Tsingh Loh’s working on a customized motorola phone so we can make contact with Cathy. Sandra soldered some wires and bought a chip from kyoto to activate the phone."

From my live cam chat (it’s had 6,000 visits since its launch two weeks ago):
