John Waters Xmas card

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I would love to say that John Waters sent this to me but in fact he sent it to my dear friend Paola Piglia who knew that I would love it.

I did have the pleasure of meeting him once decades ago in NYC at Cookie Mueller’s party but that was  for about 10 very cool minutes. Paola on the other hand really knows him, she even met his mom.
