choices...choices

And I was just thinking today that winter is almost here and no one has schedule a winter ball. How disappointing. Then I saw that the Cirque Du Noc ball has been scheduled for December 8th. Yay!! Then I saw that it was scheduled at about the same date and time as the clothing swap I was planning to go to. I not only have 4 boxes of clothes to bring to the swap to get rid of, but I just LOVE the happy buzz I get from taking new things home from the swaps. Why oh why do I have to choose!? Nooooo!!

what ever happened to privacy?

The production of "Dog The Bounty Hunter" has been suspended and the show canceled due to a racial slur that Dog made in private telephone conversation with his son. Did I mention that the call was PRIVATE?

I don't think a racial slur is ever a good thing. But I think there is a difference between using a slur publicly (in print or televised) and using one in a private conversation with a family member. I don't know if he's a racist or not. But I'll tell you this much...that conversation was private. I don't think anyone had the right to secretly tape it and sell it to the Enquirer. I don't know ANYONE who has not said something in private that would not publicly humiliate them were it made known. I don't endorse racial slurs or excuse them. And I do I know what it's like to be on the receiving end of a slur like that. But I think if some one makes that slur privately to a family member, and doesn't go public with it, they are only making themselves look bad and not the person or race in which the slur is intended. Whereas going public with a slur, in some situations, is more of a public endorsement of racism. THAT is just stupid and you should have your show canceled if you do that.

I sure don't want to see people punished for something they say in private to a trusted family member. There's just too much of a "Big Brother" feel to it knowing our private conversations with some one we trust can result in the loss of everything we have worked for most of our lives.

scratch one product off my list

With all my success, it was bound to happen that at least one product or service I offer did not work out. That has finally happened. Whenever I do a guided ladies only strip club tour, women express to me that they would have liked it if their husband or partner could have joined them. So I scheduled the first ever couples only strip club tour.

No one registered for it.

I'm not too ruffled about it, everything else I offer is selling like hotcakes. But this particular service is very popular in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Apparently Seattle-ites are not up for it.
