Body aches, mean people, and traffic

by Rajkhet Dirzhud-Rashid - SGN A&E Writer

Oh, my dears, it's been such an up-and-down couple of weeks, this one should name herself "The Twister" or something, as I feel like a roller coaster ride. Still, with my darling one (who showed me a new part of himself that broke my heart with joy the other day) as my ever-present foundation, things aren't as bad as they could be. Actually, it's more tedious these days than downright bad.

First, yay to those folks in a certain government office who not only untangled the mess left by my money manager, but also put my finances back in the black so that me and my slave were able to enjoy seeing Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince for that one's birthday a couple of weeks ago. So you might see me smiling as well as limping due to a flush money situation and some unknown pain that started plaguing me out of the blue and which is sending this one back to Western medicine for some answers this week. And big props to The Divine Que and her laser for making it so I was able to limp to the wifi café (having finally dealt my piece o' crap computer a merciful death last night) and thus give you an update on all things interesting and yummy. Hopefully, by the time you're reading this, not only will I have an answer to this troubling ache, but a cure, and I'll not be limping.

Also, hopefully someone with more sense than the current incumbent will be running for mayor (no, I'm not fooled by all these photo ops, folks), and will kick him to the curb come November. And if you're not already planning to vote in the primary on August 18, first, shame on you, and then, do it, do it now, or then. Just think of how long you're waiting in traffic now or how long you waited with me and a bunch of angry riders a couple of weeks ago because of that expensive boondoggle that is our new transit system. Word from a couple of my fave Metro drivers (not the mean ones who leave me waiting at bus stops after I've run nearly two blocks to chase them down, or the ones who're always in bad moods and slam their passengers around as "punishment" while they drive) is that this new system is so sure to fail, Metro's already asking drivers to work as backup when they do fail. Also, who the hell wants to go to Tukwila anyway, when they could take a freaking bus, cheaper, and go truly where they want to go? Yeah, these are things that should be on your mind when you're choosing our next mayor, and some City Council folks, too.

And before I'm done with the ranting part of this column, let me just say to my pharmacists: guys, it's not my fault my whole healthcare system is a mess, and to make me pay by denying me at least meds until my doc calls you is just plain shameful of you. Guess you never meant to keep that Hippocratic Oath, now, did you? To think I was praising you a few weeks ago, ha! Let's all hope these guys get a conscience and the rest of the "mean trend" hitting Seattle of late melts away to a trend of compassion and understanding for others.

Not holding my breath, though.

So, what else besides being thrilled to the point of near fainting by my lover/slave/kitty-toy has this one been up to lately? Well, besides riding our "forked-up" transit system and playing obstacle course around construction sites, this one did try some new stuff I'll share with you now. Top of my list? One of two new "go-to" fragrances for "summer me," who likes light, breezy fragrances, instead of the heavier ones for fall. My new AuraCacia Aromatherapy Body Mist in patchouli/sweet orange that I picked up at Madison Market is one I'll keep wearing into fall, trust me, and one I even sprayed my slave (in her Trans gear) with and we both loved the effect. Also loving Caudalie's Moisturizing Cream-Mask for face and eyes that I got a sample of at my fave cosmetics place, Sephora (where my honey bunny and I are getting makeovers soon, dahlings). Makes you look sweetly, divinely gorgeous with or without foundation. Honey wears Shisheido, while this one is happy with a brush of CoverGirl MicroMinerals powder over a little moisturizer for a natural glow.

And lastly, for now and later, to get your hair in shape from a summer of abusing it in the pool or at the beach, do try Phyto's Dry Program for hair. Includes shampoo, conditioner and a wonderful daily hydrating cream to keep your locks (be they dreaded or not) looking hella hot and touchable. So, that's what's delish for you little red cherries for now.

Oh, and this one happened to glance at a TV Guide and found out that my fave show, Fringe, and a new Dollhouse episode are coming in fall. Yippee! Now if only they'd bring back Moonlight or Flashpoint (which I'm not sure about yet), this one would be happy. And big honking hugs to Mr. Craig Ferguson for keeping me tickled with his puppets during this trying time. Me, I like the unicorn best, but the monkey's cute, too, so there's my vote for ya, dahlin'. That's it for me, honey angels, and remember: be safe out there, and my heart goes out to those who lost a good friend and partner when Teresa Butz left this world. Glad the bad guy who did it's in jail now, though, and I hope he gets a hundred years. Time to take back the streets, folks, to keep women and girls from getting killed, abused or attacked, and time we let society know we do matter, so someone, let's get this going, 'kay? 'Kay. Be more tolerant, more loving, and drive less, and vote, vote, vote in the primary for someone new, and let's stop trashing our planet, including our local lawns and trees with beer cans and other stuff, right? Peace out, kiss kiss, buhbye!
