eyes of the insane

Ok, to be upfront, for many years now I have obsessively avoided all news or mention of (let alone actually being subjected to watching) all the goddamned intermingled and meaningless popularity...er, I mean awards shows that seem so big on tv these days. However, something struck me this morning as I read briefly about the Dixie Chicks recent success and their winning of several grammy's, despite being roundly rejected by the so-called country establishment (and fans) for their anti-war and anti-Bush political stances a couple years ago. Well good for them I say.

But that isn't why I'm writing this entry. No, my reason is that the article (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/02/11/AR2007021101680.html) also mentioned that the Dixie Chicks won "Album of the Year" and "Record of the Year," among other awards - I guess a rare accomplishment. But can someone help me - what the fuck is the difference between these awards? I can think of no discernable difference between an album and a record - can you?

As an aside, I also noticed that one of the best fucking metal bands ever, Slayer, actually won an award for their song about one of the U.S. soldiers who commited suicide just before having to deploy back to Iraq...these are strange times indeed my friends - perhaps this is the seventh sign of the coming of the apocalypse?! If so, then I need to drink and do more drugs (and it almost goes without saying, have more kinky sex with my soulmate!) before the end...

Lesbians on the GO!

A while back Jenn submitted our little relationship story to GO! NYC magazine and guess what? We made their list of "captivating couples" - ranked #9 behind Ellen DeGeneres and Portia Di Rossi and other chic lesbian power couples from the city, but ahead of Rosie and Kelli O'Donnell, Batwomen and Renee, and 15 other couples.

I guess also that transsexuals rate higher in their minds than third rate daytime talk show celebs and ground-breaking cartoon characters. There is no accounting for taste I guess... Kidding! - it was probably a random thing... But wow - I feel so, so, so "special!" LOL. Just wish Jenn hadn't used such a crappy pic of us (from our second? date - at the Met) - I look terrible in it! and GASP!!! - brazenly showing off a bra strap, shitty, dyed hair, and a flabby tummy in public!!!...

north pole-less

I'm now back from chilly Montreal and with brand new indoor plumbing courtesy of the brilliant Dr. Brassard. I'm sore as hell, hopped up on demorol, and happier than a clam (no pun intended!). Lots more about the adventure soon, but for now just glad to be back home and sleeping in my own bed. Most amazingly, I went 2 weeks without a web connection and survived! Now it's off to dilation #3 of the day...

ps: thanks to everyone who wished me well or sent me flowers or chased down the doctor to make sure he took good care of me - you know who you are and my gratitude goes out to all of you. And of course special thanks to my soulmate for putting up with 2 weeks of my whining and groaning, and mostly just for being there the whole time and caring so much for a wretch like me - you make me feel like the luckiest girl alive everytime I wake and have the pleasure of gazing into your dazzling eyes.
