Okay, as I sit here with yet another pile of paper I've spilled something on today, I have to wonder: Is there something wonky going on in the universe besides the usual wackiness, astrology-wise, or what? Ah, but according to my honey bunny, who's a top-notch astrologer in Chinese and Vedic astrology (yes, it's a shameless plug to try and get him some business, but, hey, that's what sweeties are for, yes, yes!), it's "monkey month," so things aren't too bad for yours truly, and even my own tarot business recently got a major (and much-needed) shot in the arm as a regular client brought three friends into my life to enrich my cash flow. Praise be to Lakshmi, The Great Wow, and all deities I know and love for this boon.
So, what has this one been up to, besides having wacky times spilling things and getting more cash toward those new winter boots I'm ordering this week (so this one's feet are not cold and wet all winter like last year, honey)? Well, I did attend, though not vend, at the Central Area Community Festival last weekend and snapped up a gawgeous bracelet for my sweet one, as well as tried out the best chicken wings this one has put in her mouth (check them out for your next party by e-mailing those lovely ladies at firstname.lastname@example.org) and listened to some groovy soul sounds from one of this year's artists. Also entered several contests including one to win a sweet necklace that this one will grace my slave/love's neck with, should I win.
Also, there has been major drama at The Digs, and this one even got to wave at one of the hot firemen who showed up for some unknown emergency last week and to a couple of SPD officers (who didn't notice, but hey, I did, so that's what matters). Who knows what was up, but one can surely say "monkey month" is not only a challenge for this one's baby, but also for some of my neighbors (but, chile, that's true of my neighbors all the time, so it doesn't matter what Chinese astrology animal holds sway). Maybe next month, "rooster month" (which'll be good for sweetie, I'm told), will be better for them. Let's hope!
On the letting-you-know-about-it front, this one is thrilled beyond joy that hizzoner the (soon-to-be former) mayor was kicked to the curb, and we hope the next one is a heckuva lot more qualified and works on having buses show up on time and making the city more pedestrian-friendly. More parking over two hours on Capitol Hill would be nice, so my babe doesn't keep getting tickets when that one spends the night pleasing yours truly. Also, if you've been paying attention to the healthcare debate (and who hasn't, eh?), another option is something a certain Representative Weiner from New York has put forth: single-payer healthcare, the same type folks benefit from in our neighbor to the north, Canada. Call your reps and let them know this is what you want at 1-866-338-1015, and let's hope this one is able to maintain the healthcare she has and thus take care of some critical issues in the very near future. Down with spendown crap, and up with healthcare for all now!
Oh, and hey, we support First Lady Michelle Obama's shorts choice, which apparently caused a frenzy of late. Give the woman a break, folks; she's got the legs for shorts, and hey, isn't that worlds above anything Laura Bush or Mrs. Cheney ever wore, dahlings? You're damn right it is! And as for that whole gender flap over South African runner Castor Semenya, give it a rest, people, and let the grrl be herself and keep on winning. I mean, is this Salem, and are we going after a new class of "witches," or what?! 'Nuff said there.
Oh, and viva Les Paul, inventor of the best ever guitar. Have fun wherever you went, dude.
So what has this one tried and loved in the past two weeks, besides those yummy chicken wings and Trader Joe's Lemon Sorbet (since this one is trying to lose a few pounds, dahling, so ice cream's out for now)? Well, I did get samples of Caudalie's Vinoperfect Day Perfecting Cream and their Vinexpert Night Infusion Cream the last time me and my sweetie's grrl self wandered into Sephora for a makeover for that one. Great stuff, and I do hope to get more in the future for la face to look even yummier come fall.
Also, do try The Body Shoppe's new Colorglide Lipcolor in Pink Ginger (just perfect for the "nude lip" look for fall) and Berry Shimmer (my new fave go-to lipstick). You'll look divine, and maybe someone as delicious as my own love will kiss you, hopefully make your toes curl like my baby does mine when our lips lock. Oh yeah!
So, that's it for now, my little falling leaves, and remember: the earth is everyone's planet, and we should love her as she loves us by not throwing trash everywhere and cleaning up after ourselves, whether at the gym or out and about. And, Metro drivers, particularly my black sisters, honeys, do yourselves and your passengers a favor and smile more. After all, whatever is going on, a smile and one back always improves things, trust me on that one.
Good luck to the challengers in both the mayoral race and that of the King County exec, 'cause I don't wanna see Ms. Hutchinson there after November. And write your state and federal representatives and thank them for working so damned hard to fix the mess Bush left and get us all decent healthcare, and continue speaking out in favor of a more equal healthcare system. No peace until it's better for all of us for all time! And, hey, have an opinion, want to contact my sweetie for an astrology reading, or hell, me too? E-mail me at email@example.com. Peace out, kiss kiss, buhbye, and treat each other with mucho respect, love, and like we are all children of a higher being.
