Rosse Buurt will be in Peep Show!

Another anthology from Rachel Kramer Bussel and from the intro listed on the new blog, it looks like a great line up (of course I may be biased).

From the blog

Geneva King takes us deep inside Amsterdam’s famous red-light district, or “Rosse Buurt,” A woman is drawn to a woman she sees there, a woman who “stands in her window on the second story, not banging on the glass like the other girls, just standing, surveying the crowd, like she picks the customer and not the other way around, like she’s deciding who is lucky enough to experience any bit of her.” This is the kind of woman who sells her body in this book; one who’s knowing, aware, yet can allow herself to get swept away by passion, even when she’s on the clock.
Here's a picture of the book cover:

Finally! My Long Wait Is Over

HBO's Big Love and Showtime's The L Word premiere tonight at 9pm. The Hippo (in Bmore) is holding a part for the L Word, but I won't be there (damn cold).

I'm a little nervous about The L Word. So far, we know Jenny dies and Alice goes to jail. As long as I get some more time with my L girls, I'll be happy.

As for Big Love, well...who isn't cheered by the prospect of more polygamist antics.

Prop 8: The Musical

After the disappointment of the passing of Prop 8, blaming the black community, and other negativity, we've got a long uphill battle to acheive gay rights.

And what better way to start then through song?

Check out Prop 8: The Musical.

Awesome Shirt

This site has lots of shirts with awesome slogans. This was by far my favorite. Me and awkward sexual advances...that sounds about right.

Marriage: When Less Than Ideal is Good Enough

In an article titled The 'Good Enough' Marriage, Suzanne Wright discusses whether "settling for 'Mr. Good Enough' is better than waiting for the perfect soul mate."

Pretty much from birth, our heads have been filled with thoughts the ideal mate. The Prince Charming on his white steed. The beautiful woman who puts her own needs second to yours. We've all been told to hold out for the Happily Ever After.

But is the fairytale a realistic goal or just another tool designed to frustrate and belittle ourselves? Why do we feel like we have to strive for 100%? Let's be honest, I think most of us fall short most of the time. Our jobs are not perfect, you breath a sigh of relief when your family leaves even though you love them, there's always 5 more pounds to lose no matter how hard you work out. And yet we accept that. But when it comes to choosing a mate, we can never bring ourselves to settle for the 70% person.

Now I can come up with a million reasons why you should strive for perfection, or as close you can get. I recently wrote a list for my friend, detailing all the things I want to know about a person before we start dating. The list was three pages. The longer the relationship, the more it grows.

But am I shortchanging myself? Will I possibly miss out on a great catch because he or she's missing a few items on my list?

And if I demand perfection, that means they have the right to demand it from me. So I've got to find someone who thinks that a woman with a wierd sense of humor, a low tolerance for people, and an aversion to procreation is perfect. Someone who's willing to maintain seperate houses because I like my space. And while they're at it, hire someone to clean because I'm domestically challenged.

Come to think of it, I'm starting to see her point.
