|The Fabulous World of DiDi Glitz|
If Didi had a dollar for every Mai-Tai she's imbibed she'd be living in the Fountainbleau Hotel in fabulous Miami Beach which is where she truly belongs rather than the existential suburban nightmare America she is now miserably dwelling in without even the comfort of a live-in or even occasional lover and with only her rebellious teenage daughter, Crystal, and her contact paper to keep her company.
She is reduced to Rum and Diet Coke cocktails with an occasional maraschino cherry for cheap thrills. So she constantly dreams up far-fetched schemes to fulfill her desperately tawdry cravings for glamour and glitz.
DiDi is a suburban Sysiphus
striving futilly to redecorate her life. She thrives on highly charged
emotional scenes, valium and pepperoni pizza. She scrupulously examines
and catalogs her physical flaws and any sign of incipient aging sends
her into a panic . Wrinkles, dewlaps, crowsfeet, cellulite, flab and
grey hairs are all featured in her self-flagellating litany of disgust.
