Beenie gives me stink eye
Whenever I’m feeling a little blue I just look at my animals and they make me instantly happy. I named Beenie after singer Nancy Shanks, who happens to be Tori Amos’ best friend. Shanks is better known by her nickname “Beenie”, and is thanked in the liner notes of many of Amos’ recordings. Amos also mentions her in the song “Father Lucifer” from the album Boys For Pele, singing, “Beenie lost the sunset, but that’s okay…”
My Beenie was born September 11, 2006. She’s getting up there!
