And It’s One, Two, Three…

I’m a day late and a dollar short on this, but yesterday was an historic day in the history of women’s rights. It was the 88th anniversary of women winning the right in America to vote.


Back in the dawn of time, when I was a little shoe, my friends and I always made a point of celebrating the occasion. This year, it was with no small amount of symbolism that Hillary gave her convention speech. Not the one she wanted to give, which would have be the nominee’s acceptance oration, but a speech nonetheless, and nonetheless historic. This was the year that the first viable female candidate for President of the United States almost made it to the general election. It only took 88 years, but hey, at least it was less than a century. Let’s give it up for Hillary.

Item the Second

For some reason, RJ decided to hit me with a meme. Thanks, bitch. I feel obligated to do this, since I never return the chain letters of love she sends me.

Instructions: What you are supposed to do…and please don’t spoil the fun…Copy/paste, type in your answers and tag four people in your lists! Don’t forget to change my answers to the questions with that of your own.

(F) Four people I think will respond: Actually, I don’t think anyone will. So, you guys? Just stick a link in the comments if you decide to play.

But Wait, There’s More

As if RJ’s meme wasnt’ enough, Mean Louise tagged me the next day with another one. So here goes nothing:

Here are the rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you (see above).

2. Post the rules on your blog (this is what you are now reading).

3. Write 6 random things about yourself (see below).

4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them (This is only a game)

5. Let each person know they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog

6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up

Six Things About Me

1. I have a tattoo of a Siamese Cat on my shoulder in an homage to Bob Dylan

2. I worked as a figure model in a life drawing class at the Woodstock School of Art

3. I eat chicken feet at dim sum restaurants just to get street cred with the steam cart pushers. It works.

4. I almost got crushed at a Bad Company concert at Madison Square Garden when a fight broke out in the front row

5. I still want a horse, dammit

6. If I could live in any other time and place, it would be in Belle Epoque Paris, and who’s to say I won’t in my next life

You’re it! RJ, Elise, Elise, Shan, Gigi and Bee
