As many of you know, I went to Seattle last month, during one of the coldest Novembers on record. It was at freezing or below the whole time, and eventually snowed like crazy. While there, I went to an awesome dance club with a friend. Despite the cold, the place was packed to the gills, everyone dressed up & looking awesome, having a blast, despite the fact that snow could fall from the sky at any time (and did the next morning).

While I was there, hanging out in a place with REAL weather, San Franciscans were staying in due to a little scary sky water. They didn't go to a massive, awesome monthly event, a PROVEN monthly event full of entertainment, variety, and pretty girls taking off their clothes with class & style. Why? because of rain. RAIN!

PEOPLE IN SEATTLE PACKED A CLUB BEFORE A SNOW STORM & THERE WEREN'T EVEN BURLESQUE DANCERS!!! WTF PEOPLE?!?

When did we get so wussy? It's just sky water people. You won't freeze to death, you won't get frost bite. You won't be trapped at the club because snow is blocking your way home. You can wear a coat. You can bring an umbrella, and you can have fun & support one of the top 10 burlesque shows in the COUNTRY!

Or you can stay home & whine about a the weather, be bored, then lament the fact that hubba went away & why doesn't anything good last in this town?

I know where I'LL be.

I work three days next week, then take a week & a half off. I realize this is my first break of over 5 days in a year & a half.

Taking most of the month off from vending as well. This is needed. Not terribly good financially, but necessary emotionally.

Flying to Seattle for my first time ever next Thursday. Missing 5 or so awesome events here that weekend, but I believe it shall be worth it.

One roommate moving out next week. Another moving in right after. Many things in the house will be changed around.

Just got given the green light on our semi-regular company holiday present: December 24th-January 2rd off paid. So, TWO vacations of over 5 days in two months. Fucking SWEET!!!

There are new things developing in my personal life that are making me happy.

There is one new thing that started to develop then kinda got derailed & is now being a little annoying. There will be a conversation soon (don't worry, this is not about anyone on here. If it was, you would know by now). Not a big deal over all, just someone acting with far less maturity than I originally gave them credit for. Le sigh.

Tonight I go to the birthday party of one of my oldest friends, who I never really see enough, but who is such a fundamental part of my existence. This is someone who I've seen go to just about the lowest lows a person can emotionally, and I've had the privilege of watching him come back & make a wonderful & fulfilling life for himself. I will gladly celebrate this with him & the other members of our little family tonight.

My life is filled with joy & love & amazing people. No one is perfect & happy all the time, but that's ok. We'd all be very boring if we were. Here's a sampling of teh loves:

EC has been gone for almost two weeks, and I just found out today he's not going to be able to come home before his next trip. Though the break has been nice (less cooking, more room at home), I do miss him terribly. We haven't spent more than three days apart in almost 6 months. It's funny how things like that sneak up on you. There's this random person you kinda know for a while, then suddenly they're one of your best friends & someone you hang out with every day & rely on for so many things.

I texted him about annoying situation earlier this week, as he's one of very few people who actually know the details. He called me back within 5 seconds from half way around the country to make sure I was ok. That prettymuch made my day.

Talked to a friend for 2 hours last night. We've been doing that more & more lately. this makes me happy. Also, that we're going to Seattle in a few days ! eeee!

 Another of the BFF's got into a car wreck last week. Actually, more than one. She was, against all odds, fine. I was glad I could be there for her, and that I have the kind of wonderful partner willing to jump out of bed, throw on clothes, and drive me to my stranded & shaken friend at three in the morning because I'm mostly night blind.

A good friend ended up with some extra money the other night, and pretty much sugar-daddied Monkey & I all night. The next day, he lost his job. When I saw him the day after that, I said I owed him dinner. He said I owed him nothing (well, except for money I already owe him, but that's another subject & he knows I won't be able to pay him back for a while). He's also building me a custom work station in my soon-to-be-liberated dining room. For Funsies. Because he can.

I've gotten two people in the last two days who said that they get happier when they see me. These are both people who have that same effect on me. This makes it double awesome.

Wow, I could actually just keep going. I really have been blessed with wonderful friends. I love you all. You are my anchor & my reason. :)

I feel at peace for the first time in a while.

Apparently, I was meant to be a blond. Though I haven't necessarily had more fun, I have totally gotten more compliments than I ever have on my hair. Weird. I never really thought it suited me. Whatever. I'm running with it for now. :)

Cause I'm a blond B-L- . . .oh, I don't know!

Haven't been writing too much lately. Too much going on. I'm busy as always, but also stopping to have fun sometimes. :)

Poly life is weird. I was not prepared to be full-on poly this fast, but . . . there are things in one's life you cannot predict & control, and one of those things are the feelings of others. So yeah, been coming to terms with that. I also have a very odd relationship of my own that I can't quite classify in any obvious or main-stream terms. It's just kinda . . ambiguous right now. Still, there's lots of love there & I'm not pushing for anything more than what it is currently. I just wish it wasn't so confusing sometimes.

Day job is boring the shit out of me lately, but the steady paycheck & insurance for my partner & I keeps me going. The night job is fun & stressful & I wish I had more time to make pretty things. Monkey's unemployment runs out in November. I don't know what we're going to do if he doesn't find a job soon. His business may support him eventually, but it will take months, and we just don't have that kind of time. At least the other friend I was helping out is getting back on his feet.

Tonight is Hubba, and I'm looking very forward to that. We have some new products to debut, with more in the pipeline. I have 4 big events (including tonight) before Halloween, which should help me get back on my feet & get me to Seattle in November. It may not be a good idea financially, but I NEED that fucking vacation.

My friends are wonderful, and every day I am amazed by the incredible people who have chosen to love me. This last month would have been hell without them. I may write more on that later. We'll see what my time is like. Now o finish the work day, pick up EC, get dressed for hubba, price & pack the new shit, drive to the city, unload, set up, work for the next severl hours while watching an awesome show, then go home fall down go boom.

Also, my right eye is swollen for no apparent reason, so I have a follow up visit with my eye doc tomorrow. Also, I am night blind, so if I ever ask you for rides to/from a club, know I'm not being lazy. Luckily for me, either EC, Monkey, or Blau (or on a super-fun night, all of the above) usually end up wanting to go where I'm going & are very understanding. Once again, my friends & loved ones rule.

Yeah, ok, enough randomness. I guess I just needed a quick brain dump. See many of you later tonight.

ok lazy web, I need your help:
  My friend & I are going to Seattle in November for a few days. We already have hotel rooms there, we're just considering our transportation options right now. Both of us are on the broke side, so cheap is good. We were planning on driving originally, but that may not work out, due to issues with his vehicle. I've looked into amtrak, and it's freaking expensive. Are there any other trains that go from here to there? (I kinda want to do the train thing because I never have, and I wanted to actually see the pacific north west, as I've never been there). If not a train, what about cheap flights? I hate flying, but I'd deal, if it was the most cost effective way. Suggestions?

In the realm of "things keeping me sane this week" is Monkey, _livid_ , whittles , my friend Shayin, blaugirl , and this video. (there are others who have helped with the sane, but these are really the top 5)

Also, look up this guy's other stuff on YouTube. He's fucking hilarious.Thanks to sacredvoice  for introducing me to his videos yesterday.

Huh. Realizing I haven't posted for shit about this.

I'm debuting at Hubba on Friday. My dear former upstairs neighbor The Reverend Mother, has asked me to be a major part of his act (as he said "Bitch, I gave you the FUN role. Dammit!!).

So yeah. My ta-tas, on stage, sometime between 11 & midnight. Tomorrow.

My lovely boys will be covering my vending table until after intermission, when I will be able to breathe again.

It looks like unemployment benefits got extended again. This is awesome news for all my friend who were about to lose them. This is also awesome because Monkey was down to his last check & I wasn't sure how we were going to get through the next month. *whew*

Also, is anyone hiring for anything? Especially entry level type stuff? I have a dear friend who is moving into his van today because he lost his job & cannot pay his rent. He needs a job NOW & isn't being overly picky.

My Monkey has a bit of a cold, and I'm going stir crazy. What's going on tonight? Where are you all ending up? If anyone is going from Oakland to either Cat's or DNA, could I get a ride? Prehaps a girl's night is in order?
