"We can see this shit on TV, bitches!"

Yes, that was Grace's quote last night as her, TrannieLuver, and I made our premature departure from yet another of DC's vast free events.

To explain, Grey Goose Entertainment and Sundance Channel were having an "advance screening of the premiere episode of the Sundance Channel original series, ICONOCLASTS," this one staring actor Samuel L. Jackson with basketball legend Bill Russell.

It was at the beautiful City Museum of DC, which sadly was recently closed to all but private functions such as this. The plan was supposed to be: 7:00 pm Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, 8:00-9:00 pm ICONOCLASTS screening.

The problem began when the Grey Goose drinks came with mostly Grey Goose and not much liquior, and was compounded by the utter absence of hors d'ouvres, especially in relation to Grey Goose. By 8:00 pm, we were simply not in a state capable of enjoying in a respectable manner.

So we fled, and worshiped the iconoclast that is Wentworth Miller's character on Prison Break instead.



Perhaps I need to go back to my moonlighting job as human test subject. Malaria and Ecoli paid nicely. I wonder what else the world of parasites have to offer...


It has been a very long time since I reported on the status of my goals, which themselves were the product of a drunken night (okay afternoon) with Blue Like Mine.

1. Establish a comfortable & organized living space. Date: 8/15, then 9/15
Status: Still at the half way point, I think. Two steps forward always seem to be followed by three steps back. New date: 12/15
2. Continue & fortify my volunteering. Date 7/31

Status: Temporarily Satisfied. I have returned to the food preparation organization I was formally at with a new friend, and I've tried my darndest to do the legal clinic for HIV-related employment discrimination. I'm going to stay at this point until the new year.
3. Incorporate artistry into my life (painting, photography, etc). Date: 8/31

Status: Still need to paint more, and find a photo lab. But no money means I might put this on hold.
4. Weigh 165. Date: 10/15

Status: Success! I hit 165, right around the target date, and am now past it.

New Goal: Weigh 180. Date: 12/31

5. Resolve Buffalo. Date: 8/31

Status: I've grown tired of Buffalo. I deleted his number (AND all text messages with it) this past weekend. Resolved.
6. Restart academic research & writing. Date: Collect - 8/15; Organize - 9/15; write draft - 10/15

Status: Research collected. Check. Organization delayed.

What WORLD is this? In what world do we continue to see a Democrat as governor of VA, while we have a Republican heading up MD!? Please, let this be just a sign of shifting times, which would elate me. If not, then god as my witness I'll cut ties to MoCo and move to Clarendon.
