Numero 6 of the RDP and I chose them because, well, I felt like it. So there! :)
I had a lot of fun reading these and had my horizons expanded intellectually and culturally. Keep on keepin' on, bloggers!
I was PMing with Jack Heart this past week and he wrote: " you wrote that thing about Mellon that I still have saved in my favorites. What did you get 10 ratings at most. Then you write "no I won't fuck you" and go to the top of… Read full post »
This is a bittersweet time of year for me. Two years ago yesterday was Inauguration Eve here in DC, and at the last minute, I was given a ticket to stand in the Blue Section on the lawn of the Capital Building during the Inauguration. The alumni director from my undergrad… Read full post »
This supposed enlightened, vegetarian, radical feminist, lawyer man that I've been seeing for almost two months informed me Sunday, that, and I quote:
"I expect to have sex everytime I see you."
For almost two months, he has portrayed himself as a gentleman who "knows how a woman should be… Read full post »
After a hiatus due to life's unexpected curve balls, I have finally been able to sit down and read through the posts here at OS like I used to. Man, have I missed it. This week's Razzle Dazzle Pick is devoted to normalcy, decency, and a need to acknowledge who we… Read full post »
It has almost one week after the shooting in Tucson, Arizona, and I repulsed by the complete disregard and blatant willingness to look away from the real causes of this tragedy. Even the Open Salon editors are picking posts that rally a message that it isn't political and that we shouldn'… Read full post »
This past Wednesday, I was in Old Town Alexandria, VA, for a little date night. After taking in the Happy Hour deals at one Irish pub, I easily persuaded my date to join me in visiting Le Tache, the adult store that - correct me if I'm wrong - was featured… Read full post »
We have reached the breaking point in our country where those who have used violent rhetoric against political opponents must be held accountable.
Regardless of whether or not Jared Loughner is a Tea Party member or extreme right wing conservative, those individuals who have gone on the campaign tra… Read full post »
You heard me. So sod off already.
I'm not going to answer my phone when you call me at 3:00 am, because you "want to talk." Kiss my ass. Has your arm fallen off of your body and there are no ambulances available to come pick you up and transport you… Read full post »
They buried you today. The ground has been shoveled back into the grave to cover up your coffin. I can't imagine what darkness your face looks into now. But, I know that the face that matters doesn't see it.
You were the last one of your siblings to pass… Read full post »
Happy New Year, OSers! I've compiled my own little list of video clips that stick in my mind from over this past year from pop culture to politics to "human interest". Two of them, I had to provide links for instead of the actual videos because, for some reason, after I… Read full post »
I awoke on my 27th birthday, thinking it was like any other. Nothing miraculous had happened; I felt the same as I did the day before. But, unbeknownst to me - I had become a lesbian.
A couple of months after my birthday, my mom called me one Sunday afternoon.
"Hi,… Read full post »
Yesterday morning, I was forty-five minutes late getting to work because of a suspicious package found in Pentagon Metro Station that held up the metro lines.
I was having drinks with a friend last night, and I told him I should have a shelf full of Oscars for all of the times I've successfully faked an orgasm. I mean, a wall full of those puppies.
He said, "Please don't fake it."
Me: "Sometimes, you just want it… Read full post »
After standing in line in the back of the Cathedral until it's my turn, I walk through the barred metal gates into the anex of the darkened confessional room, walk through the thick wooden door and close it behind me.
Making the sign of the cross. "Bless me, Father, for I… Read full post »
Wow, four weeks of the RDP... anyway, Happy Holidays and enjoy some great posts that I think are pretty fab.
jane bourne ultimatum smithie's why oh why oh WHY did none of you tell me about hair tinsel?
So, now, on the verge of the tax deal that the spineless Democrats are caving in on, the Republicans block legislation giving seniors $250 in aid.
I am through with this bullshit.
Why don't the Democrats call the Republicans' bluff on filibustering these damn tax increases and let them… Read full post »
I was born a little over a year after John Lennon was assassinated. I wasn't exposed to the Beatles other than my sister playing their music in our house and that wasn't done very often. I happened across Strawberry Fields when visiting New York City once, but I didn't understand the… Read full post »
I didn't sleep well last night.
At 2:30 in the morning, I woke up. Some one had been yelling my name, calling out for me in my sleep. It was the end of a dream I was having - I just can't remember the dream. I heard him yell my… Read full post »
It looks like the wealthy are going to get at least two more years, or $740 billion, of tax cuts that they don't need. How much longer are they going to hold the guns to our heads? How much longer are they going to make the millions of us suffer under… Read full post »
Series 3 of the Razzle Dazzle Picks.
I thought it appropriate to go with posts about Thanksgiving or posts that made me thankful for what I have and for life with its many challenges and encouraging, uplifting outcomes. Best wishes, Susan1967.

I swear. I don't. I don't, but that may not seem to be the case when I'm on the phone with Verizon. I called to cancel a work request and instead of canceling the work request, they canceled my account. Yeah, that's right. Not only was my internet not working, but… Read full post »
As I prepare to pack up and head out of town for the Holiday, in the safety of a family member's car where no one needs to grope me or my cat before we board, or look at my cat's naked body via radiation therapy, I am fighting the insane urge… Read full post »
Week Two of the RDP! Now, there is one blogger who was chosen last week, and no, I'm not playing favorites - promise!
Flylooper's post on Mahler and Ruckert is dear to my heart because I've performed selections from Mahler's Des Knaben Wunderhorn. Mahler raised me to a level of… Read full post »
