Lipstick and Lust
Lust discovered, Saturn returns aplenty and gift suggestions for early shoppers
by Rajkhet Dirzhud-Rashid - SGN A&E Writer

So, since the last column (where this one was warning bus riders who stand at the #10 bus stop to beware the rats), this one has seen more of these nasty little pests in this hoity-toity town. Suggestion: a new title for the "Emerald City." How about "City of Rats?" I mean, honey, they're everywhere. We even saw some scurrying (luckily this femme was on the bus, or she would have screamed her little head off) at the stop just before the Aurora bridge. Ewww, honey, some city official needs to get on this before we have bubonic plague: phase two, know wha' I'm sayin'? Just keep your eyes peeled, and me, I'd carry something heavy if I'm waiting in the dark at some bus stop, dahling, just in case Willard and his little friends come to say "hi."

Ah, but enough of dark news, my little roasted chestnuts. This one is a happy, happy, happy camper, as she sits here with a satisfied soul (and other parts of me, baybee!), from some "pillow pile" action last weekend with a certain Army supply clerk. At last the Craigslist ad this one put in has yielded some good results (never mind the scary stalker we had to call the cops about last week, honey!). This one had her "bell rung" by the supply clerk (a real Georgia hottie!), is being chatted up and flirted with via text message and phone by a Marine, and went on an actual date with a Navy guy. Too bad that one's going to Iraq in a week, but this one will make sure said Navy guy has good thoughts before the departure date. This one will let you know how that turns out, dahlings. Just call me "Ms. Military Ambassador Par Excellence!"

Oh, and a few firefighters answered, as well as some ordinary folks, but this one really has a soft spot for the soldiers, since falling for 'army sweetie' (who's still in the war zone as of this writing). At least now I can handle the weirdness in this city a little better (including the nutjob who, after getting thrown off the bus in front of me, came over to where I was freezing my ass off last weekend to ask if he'd "be OK"). What does one say to that question, but just answer "I'm okay, so I think you'll be okay too." Only the guy was completely off the beam, and after nearly getting into a skirmish with another nut who literally fell down from drunkenness, proceeded to harass other folks. So this one called the cops, but thank Goddess the bus came before they came and this one made her way safely home to kitties Zzell and Garbo (and a delightfully campy episode of The Legacy).

Ah, and yes, this one did try some yummy products, including the three delish lipglosses being offered as part of a gift set at L'Occitane. I particularly liked their "Cherry Blossom" gloss, but the "Lemon Honey" gloss is cool too, and they taste good, so kissing should follow if you wear it this holiday season. Also do try Hermes' "Kelly Caleche" eau de cologne, too, and smell as wonderful as you look when you're hitting those many holiday parties I know you'll be going to very soon. And if you're in the U-District looking for a gift, a little store called Sindhu has lots of incense, funky and fine jewelry and other cool items, including the wonderful solid perfume I got in "patchouly" fragrance. Wearing it today and loving it (might turn on the Navy person I'm meeting later tonight, Monday) before the Iraq departure, for some fun in the sheets.

And do keep reading the blog (which this one found out will be continuing, in spite of the fact that our loyal poster has left "the fold," as it were, for another job post - more of that "Saturn return" energy that has been hitting all the mid-twenties folks in my life of late). You can find it at bloggerspot.com, and the serial story, Young Blues will continue, yay! For now, be safe, eat right and do some exercising after all the pigging out you'll be doing (I know this one is doing both, working out and pigging out and working out this weekend before some shopping). And do keep in mind while you're getting gifts, it's a good thing to give too, so donate to theaters, public television and a nifty little organization called Heifer International (which you can probably find online), which helps third-world countries with gifts of livestock and bees. Also, this one can tell you the remaining open farmers' markets (in Ballard and the U-District) have great and original stuff for giving, so don't neglect them. It's worth the trip, trust me.

A shameless plug here: Yes, tarot readings are great gifts, so remember your favorite psychic and call him or her. Then don't forget Sephora (this one's fave place to shop) and Nordstrom have gift sets for your diva who likes to "make up" and smell good. That's all for now, and have a great holiday weekend, my lovelies. Buhbye! Oh, and don't forget the Museum store at the Tacoma Art Museum, with so much stuff you'll have to be there all day (just to look, let alone shop for others ... maybe for yourself, too!). And honey, no one will turn down stuff or a gift certificate from Teatro Zinzanni (in the process of moving now). Byeee!
