Just checking in. Letting you know I am still alive. I can’t promise I’ll be alive much longer though. I’m going to New Orleans with the sleazeteam today. We’re probably going to accidently explode the city, but I’m not too worried about it.

Monday

30 Aug

Hey gays & girls. I would ask you what you did this weekend, but I really don’t care. I, on the other hand, got a new bed, watched “The Land Before Time,” & then I made some roasted eggplant hummus. Party machine comin’ through….

I would blog about something having to do with fashion, but fuck it. Even I am getting bored with that crap. Just don’t wear your hair in a bun with a scrunchie wrapped around it & I’m sure you’ll look fine.

Yeah, well- fuck all y’all. See ya.

Day Tripper

11 Jul

I’m going on vacation today, & probably won’t be back until next Monday. As much as I should probably post something about Alexander McQueen’s tacky tribute window at some store in London (they have the dresses looking like they have hung themselves), I will leave you with something happy & exciting.

As a lot of you know, I write for a magazine here in San Francisco. I cover concerts & do album reviews- la la la…Well, last night, I got to cover Paul McCartney! I was put on his personal guest list & ended up being sat 8th row, center stage. It was a dream come true. I couldn’t believe it. I had a photographer with me who was moving around all over the place, so some of these photos are taken from behind- however, they show just how close we were to the stage! To give you a better idea: when the microphone was turned off, I could still perfectly hear what Paulie was saying. It was amazing. Once my review gets posted for the magazine, I’ll give the link on here.

See the rest of the set here: Paul McCartney @ AT&T Park; 7/10/10

Adios, my dears! See you in a week-ish.

Back in the day

9 Apr

I’ve been looking back to my childhood & previous years as recent inspiration. I recently ran across a blog entry from A Cup of Jo that had a pictorial of stuffed animals. It got me thinking about that one toy we all had as a kid that we would be devastated if ever lost, even to this day. I have a stuffed lamb (LambyPie) that has been by my side for 23 years. She’s sitting on my bed right now, as a matter of fact. I remember, about 3 years ago, I thought I had lost her & went into a panic. I cried for a good three days. It was like loosing my child. It didn’t help that my mom found my old baby book that same night & the entry she randomly decided to read was about my first encounter with LambyPie (my very first Easter, she was waiting for me in my yellow basket). Oh, I just about wanted to kill myself. Turns out, my sweet little lamb had fallen down the side of my bed & was stuck between the wall & my dust-ruffle. Needless to say, when I found her, we (me, mom, & even though he thought it was really dumb- my brother) threw a little “thank god you’re okay/we love you” party. Hah, yeah…well…ever since then, LambyPie has been carefully placed everywhere she goes. I haven’t let her out of my sight. She’s been to Costa Rica, Mexico, Greece, Switzerland, all over the US- made pit stops in France, Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom….she’s very worldly. I just adore her.

Did some camping

Spring has sprung

2 Apr

I have a love/hate relationship with spring & summer. I love the warmer months because I’m a big outdoors person- the nicer weather makes my kayaking, hiking, & camping trips much more enjoyable. Also, I like jumping off of random objects into lakes & rivers, which I won’t do when it’s cold cos I don’t want to get pneumonia. However, I hate warmer months for a very stupid & girlie reason: my hair. I have long, curly/wavy hair which goes completely nuts in heat & humidity. Oh, it’s just pathetic. Needless to say, by the time spring & summer passes, my hair throws a celebratory party. With that said, however, I’ll take my messy hair any day if that means I get to go for a good hike & then jump out of a tree into a big river at the end of the day.

Da da da — here’s a list of my spring wants & inspirations:

Still crazy after all these years

30 Mar

Another personal post. Sorry. I’ve just been having such a great time being home & surrounding myself with the most wonderful & real people, that it’s hard not to mention all of these good times.

Usually my nights in Birmingham starts off with some big shindig until 2 or 3 in the morning, & then I always end up back at this apartment until 6am. Ol’ Drunk McGee taking pictures with a teapot was out of control that night. Lord have mercy. I don’t even know.

What I do know, however, is that Paul Simon & dancealong’s like this seems to be the regular routine when we’re together- no matter where we are. I just love ’em.

Going back to Birmingham tomorrow & Saturday. Then I go back to San Francisco & I am not ready…at all. That’s a whole other story that I may or may not say something about later on in the week- but the thought of going back to California has made me pretty emotional lately & well…yeah.

I’m going for a hike today. Good day to you & yours.
