Counting the days until my soldiers come home
by Rajkhet Dirzhud-Rashid - SGN A&E Writer

Ah, as I sit here writing late at night on Sunday after visiting The Fabulous Daughter and her beau (a cuter couple you'll never see, and I'm not just sayin' that 'cause I'm the mom, honey!), I'm happy May has come and the days are getting closer until I see "new army sweetie." That one hits these shores again, June 10 and this one is beside herself, praying to all the Goddesses and Gods I know to keep that one safe "over there" and bring that sweet thing home to mama. And yes, this one is still hoping to see "army sweetie" again, at least to see how we stand, now that it's been a year and a half since that one "surged" with a whole group to that stupid war. Stay tuned, should get interesting, fo' sho'!

Ah, and though this little kitty has been a stalwart supporter of SPD (especially a certain tall, blond officer), while marching with some folks for May Day (and yes, it was many more than the "official" tally in certain papers reported), this harpy of an officer ordered me off the sidewalk, or maybe it was off the street, who knows? When I yelled back that I was "press," she screeched that I "should be up front," or some such nonsense. Guess the fact that her car nearly hit me - to her credit, she wasn't driving, but hey, I was nearly run down by a freaking police car - was missing Her Highness' vision at the time. Ah well, not every officer was acting like "Le Queen of Hearts" (remember, "off with her head"?), and some were even "standing and modeling," (S&M), as in the case of a tall, Black bro', and another equally tall hotshot who looked so much like my fave cowboys of films past as he threw one leg over his motorcycle, this one nearly lost her footing on the march as her knees went a bit weak. Nothing like power and a uniform to get this one's engine going, my sweeties.

Oh, but lest you think it was all ogling certain cops and getting bitched at by others, this one did hold a corner of a large version of "The Constitution" with her lovethang and friend, a certain Taurean, who I gave a wet, sloppy kiss to in front of cops, Goddess and the whole freaking city. Now that's spunk, my little sugar babies, oh yeah!

So, what has this one been doing besides marching for immigrant rights (and against the war, 'cause those folks were on hand too, making a crowd of over 2,000 folks, you conservative news sources, you!), lusting and waiting for my "soljah" to come home? Well, I finally, finally got my hot little hands on that delish mascara from Max Factor, Vivid Impact, and, dahlings, this stuff is the sauce and all the chicken wings, let me tell ya! The base coat (I bought Blushing Blue with a pinkish/fuchsia highlighting coat) looks like fairy dust for lashes, and, believe me, honey, you will get noticed wearing this stuff. Also comes in black/fuchsia and brown/gold (I'm planning on giving myself that one for Mother's Day). I'll hate myself for saying this, but the only place you can find it is Walmart. Believe me, I did many mea culpas after buying from those evillys, but hey, had to have that mascara, dearie. Also tried Annick Goutal's Le Muguet and Les Jasmin, which are only at Nordstrom, so get in there and get some; it's so yummy. Hey, if you haven't bought your mom - or someone you like to think of as a "mother figure" in your life - a present, this could be just the thing. Or, you could make her a little gift basket of the most wonderful soaps from some of the vendors at the Ballard Farmer's Market - go to the redhead, with the kid, and you'll get some soap so heavenly, you may learn to live in the bath or shower.

The soap is huge and she makes it herself in small batches. Lasts forever, too. Me, I want shoes, candles and chocolate (that stuff everyone at Madison Market is buying that one person says is "addictive" it's so good, Sjaak's, and my fave fantasy come true). Will tell you if that happens next time, as another "soljah" friend and my new bottom might be making that happen at Le Wet Spot this weekend. Oh, and big props to the medics who took care of this one when she thought she was having a heart attack a few weeks ago (I wasn't, honey, but the heart was beating super fast, faster when a certain hot firefighter showed up to help the medics out). They were nice, the releasing nurse at the UWMC wasn't so nice and left me with a huge bruise after her little, sadistic "pull the tape off the patient" scene. Nothing like being topped without your consent. Read more about this night of horrors in the blog version of this column at bloggerspot.com. And feel free to e-mail me about that and this column at ijanaral@yahoo.com. For now, enjoy the great spring weather, and be nice to each other out there, and drivers, we know the construction is making ya crazy, but try to remember folks walking or bicycling have rights to the street too, eh? Buhbye!
