Today marks the end of Venus in retrograde. For a Taurus, like me, that's good. I'm hoping that Venus in retrograde was responsible for making me feel like I've been slamming into walls every day for the last six weeks.
Are you rolling your eyes as you read this? Or are you nodding in agreement? How do you feel about Astrology?
Once upon a time, several years ago, at a taco shack in Honolulu, I had the most amazing fish tacos ever. The fish tasted like ocean. The cabbage crunched and the sauce...oh, the sauce. It was light, yet savory, with a tiny kick. I could have drank a cup of it.
Every few days, I think about these fish tacos. If I could afford it, I'd go back to Honolulu just for the tacos.
Recently, Facebook began charging people with Facebook business pages to "promote" posts. Meaning business owners now have to pay for their fans to see posts that used to come up in newsfeeds for free.
What crappy business move has an entity made that forced you to question your loyalty?
At a BBQ, friends recently described bad date stories. Like one friend, who after meeting someone on match.com and emailing a lot, finally exchanged phone numbers with the guy. He promptly sent her a naked pic of himself.
Another friend was driven almost two hours to have lunch at a taco stand.
A guy friend took a friend (who was a girl) out on what he thought was a date only to realize that his friend had no idea it was a date. He realized she didn't see him that way AT ALL.
My Internet is intermittent. Which is driving me nuts because it's kind of hard to work when you can't connect. So I call Verizon and answer 4,000 automated questions. I finally get to a human being. He says he's testing the DSL line and the call gets dropped.
It's like this
The scene is the same
All the usual faces, banter, noise
The door opens
It's not you
Heaviness spins from my head
to my heart
I want to leave
Pieces of yesterdays
Other Saturday nights
I take deep breaths
Hoping it will pass
This weekend, I attended the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas. The five hour show included debut burlesque dancers, duos, troupes, icons and all stars and an award ceremony featuring the crowning of Miss Exotic World 2012.
The totally entertaining show was part pin-up girl, part toe shoes, part modern dance with a dash of tap and a whole lot of tassels and glitter. The entire audience dressed in glamour gowns. And a giant blue male bunny hosted the event wearing four inch stripper heels.
When have you felt like you landed on another planet?
One of my favorite parts about a roadtrip home is rehashing events of the trip. The, "What? You didn't see that?" And the, "He said that?" And the, "Oh yeah, but did you see when that guy did ___________?"
