Lipstick and Lust
Three years of Lipstick and Lust!
Memories of my early days in Seattle, and more, in this week's special column.

by Rajkhet Dirzhud-Rashid - SGN A&E Writer

Before I get to the celebrating, the memories and other 'stuff', I must say this: Does anyone else who has ever seen that stupid car commercial, where that guy with weird hair, cuts off the salesman and starts playing music really loud, want to bop that kid upside the head? I know I do, because that is such a condoning of what seems to be a rampant epidemic of outrageous rudeness. It makes me grinding mad every time I see it. Maybe we, who still have manners in this lack of manners society (a man at a movie last week, not only stepped on me, but excused his behavior and lack of apology by claiming, 'I can't see!', then, proceeded to tell his 'friend' to step on me too, because 'she won't move') should flood that company with outraged e-mails. The treatment you get next time you're out could be even worse than that commercial, or the extremely rude clod and his 'friend' in the movie that caused this one to suffer! The person you save could be yourself from extreme rudeness.

Anyway, enough about that. I have been negligent in thanking a certain Taurean friend, who generously came over and gave me a 'full body massage' (and then some!) a few weeks ago. My dear, I salute you and your 'magic hands'! But to the Leo kookoo job who 'mauled' this one last week, honey, you're permanently off the grid and I do thank you for reminding me why I don't 'do' Leos anymore. I hope to never have that kind of encounter again in this lifetime, oi me! Ah, but grrlz have returned to this one's little brain, and I have been not only lusting over those two hot chicks who're on the 'what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas commercial', but a few cuties I've seen on the Hill, and at the Farmer's markets around town. Viva la lezbo tendencies for this one, eh? Sure hope a certain green eyed play pal returns to the new and improved Wet Spot soon, for some hot time in the sheets.

And speaking of Le Wet Spot, this one was surprised to note that the door fee has increased, but happy to play with a new bottom last weekend (though I missed my usual horizontal tango with a certain someone, because that one was busy being monitor that night). So, our lust remains unabated, making us a cranky creature as I write this missive. That and missing 'army sweetie' like all of the good stuff has disappeared from my life, is brining back some tears to these 'soft browns'. But, a cheery moment did happen yesterday, when a certain very hot SPD officer smiled at this one from their patrol car. Yes, miracles do occur, sometimes when you least expect it my dears. Wishing still to get to know that one better, fo' sho'!

So, my dahlings, not only is this column three delightful years old, but if you're reading this on Saturday, then this little kitty has been in this wack-ass town for 20 whole years. And believe me, a lot happened in those years, so, for the next couple of columns, I'll be saluting a few good souls who have left this one's life, either because they moved (Andrea, Annie, from 'Annie's Little House of Mojo', AHA Theatre, to name a few), or 'crossed over' (Michael B., Michael M., Cookie, Craig and his partner from 'Billy Buck's'-when Broadway was a truly cool place instead of the dive it is now---and Cowboy Tom). This one gives you a wave and kiss and misses you horribly and terribly. And though my relationship with Rev. Gwen Hall had a few spurs under the blanket, her passing only reminds this one of how much this little canker sore of a town has changed in twenty years. Viva Gwen and viva Cookie, who went before her.

Ah yes, and the photo in this column is from a photo shoot another friend who moved, Clarice, took for my first poetry book (which sold out, yay!). Happy anniversary to us all, and do look for more 'adventures' in the coming months and next year, when this one hopes to be hailing from that wonderful town of Tacoma (where she'll hopefully, finally have a regular sex pal and partner, while she waits for 'army sweetie' to return to these shores).

Well, my little parfaits, before I go all misty eyed on you, here are some great products I tried recently, as well as some music I liked when I attended the tail end of the Police Picnic that the 16th precinct throws for the neighborhood every year. First, do try L'Occitane's 'Eye Balm' which is guaranteed to take that 'I didn't get enough sleep' look from your face. Also, try their 'Very Precious Cream' facial moisturizer, which you sleep in, to look dewy fresh the next day. Get these at the L'Occitane store in Pacific Place (home of rude moviegoers, but nice staff).

And, though I'm not overly impressed with Gwen Stefani's signature scent 'L' (the complicated ad in the Fall Vogue, is impressive, however), I still recommend it for those who like just a hint of something and not a scent that overpowers everyone around you.

Also, do try and either see (they do perform at fairs around the area, so one of them told me at the Police Picnic back in July), or pick up the CD by 'Global Heat'. The sound is a mix of funk, world music and spiritual/newagey 'groove music'. And they have energy that's very positive, that won't make you hate yourself for liking the beat enough to dance to it. You can go to their MySpace page (www.myspace.com/globalheat) for more info on their upcoming shows and info on how to obtain this wonderful collection of songs. So, that's it for now my little butterflies, and do e-mail me at ijanaral@yahoo.com and check out my blog at bloggerspot.com Buhbye!
