Lipstick and Lust
Waiting, lusting and making 'bold moves', all in this Lipstick and Lust
By Rajkhet Dirzhud-Rashid

First, before I forget it (as I did in the blog of this column!.) let me just wish 'army sweetie', my true love, a big happy birthday (and even though you're in a war zone baby, this one is certainly thinking of you, kiss, kiss!) on turning 24. And stay save ovah theah, 'kay? 'Kay! There, now that's out of the way, a few other things to get off the rather luscious chest (in my Frederick's hot cami, ba zing!). Folks, folks, we know it's finally summer but here are some things you must keep in mind if you want looks of longing instead of horror. Wear clothes that fit properly (and we're not being 'sizeist' here, because everyone who knows this one, knows she likes the 'big boys' and the 'big girls', 'kay?) and use some sunscreen, because skin cancer is not a 'glamour do', hmmm. And people, now that it's hotter and we're all on crowded buses, ( a good thing for the planet and to stop the war sooner, yes?) do NOT forget those three magic words: soap, water and deodarant. No one wants b.o. in their face (or 'plumber's cracks' either-and this goes for some of you females out there who thought that top from wherever you bought it would look as good on you as on the dummy in the store, but no, that is NOT true). Just my 'summer tips' for those of you who lose common sense this time of year.

Oh, and my pet peeve, people I know you love to visit your 'homies', but please keep in mind that there are other people on the planet, and don't block sidewalks, or aisles in bathrooms (really, I ran into this 'gaggle' of girls from 'tha hood' who did not seem aware that the Westlake Mall bathroom is already built for midgets, and had to 'oh' and 'ah' someone's baby to the point of keeping this one's bladder waiting for them to move the freak out of the way!). So not cool. Remember summer weather means more folks in the street, so act accordingly yes? Oh and chile we have been lusting our bodacious booty off, over not only a certain officer of the law (baby, at least give the girl a 'oh, rejected, bruised and refused' or sumthin' over the flower, 'kay?), but some delish firefighters who stopped to put out a fire down the street from The Digs recently.

And for all of my Dyke readers who have been rolling their eyes, thinking 'that girl is boy crazy and will never think of 'the P' again', well I have news for you. I not only felt like ripping my gal pal's short little dress off and munching her there at the Redmond Fred Meyer ยท(hey, you gotta love a girl who wears a dress so short and red fishnets with it, yes?), but I"ve been smiling a lot at the hot ladies on the Hill of late (who have been smiling right back, thank you very much-seems my working out has paid off dahlings). So there, something for everybody to be happy with me about (I guess!). But mostly it's been (as the song said) 'a cold and lonely summer', without someone permanent, or even a regular 'hookup' to keep my sheets friendly. Guess I'll have to wait for Fall to come to 'get some luvin' again, eh? I sure as hell hope not, as this girl is getting pretty tired of fantasy lovers and wants some real stuff right now!

Antyway, I'm still able to smile through it all, thanks to my man Craig Ferguson and his late night comedy routine and the fact that CBS has brought back not only 'Standoff', but 'Jericho' as well. And cash flow is improving, so I actually bought some new lip gloss from my fave store, Sephora, today. Honey, you have to try some, especially the 'No. 4' I'm wearing right now. A delish hot pink that'll hopefully get some heads turning and make some fireworks happen in my bedroom pdq. Also, do try 'Wise Woman Regeneration Day Cream' (which you can pick up at The Body Shop at Pacific Place. And if you haven' t gotten up to the Ballard Sunday Farmer's Market, by all means do and if you do stop by the Ballard Organics booth and pick up some of their oil or soap, or bodywash (I'm wearing the Dark Patchouly and Ylang Ylang now and believe me, no one complained that this one smelled rank on the crowded number ten I rode up from downtown just now. Also, if you want real strawberries that taste like the way you dream they taste, try the ones from Sidhu Farms (also as the Ballard Farmer's Market and the one on Fridays at MLK and Union). A taste of heaven, I promise.

And finally, I must say out loud that media, mainstream media that is, seems to have forgotten that people of color exist. I mean, there are more than blondes in the Northwest, but not if you watch current commercials, or programs (which this one does, since she's single, not by choice). Maybe some boycotting of products or letter writing would help certain local folks and national ones to put more color in their ad campaigns, so activists, get busy. Hey, I believe it's each of our job to change the world, and not wait for the world to change on its own, so consider this your 'call to arms' as it were. So, I guess that's it for now my little blueberry shakes, and do feel free to e-mail me about this column (and check out the blog of the same name on bloggerspot.com) at ijanaral@yahoo.com. Be nicer to each other out there, have patience with each other and spread good thoughts everywhere, all of the time. Buhbye!
