I actually went out to the bar Thursday night. It was Bruce's birthday, and I've missed so many other important nights there (I'm still kicking myself for not going to his wedding reception) that I decided that I WAS going, come hell or high water.

And then Captain Paranoia reared his ugly head and tried talking me out of it.

So I whined a little bit about this on FB, and one of my friends/playa village-mates told me precisely what I needed to hear: "That fucker has the best timing. Kick him in the balls, and then go sparkle like the god damn princess we all know you are."

"Princess," I thought. "I can do that."

"There comes a point past panic," a friend of a friend once said, "where all you can do is turn the ignition." They were talking about BurningMan prep, but it seems equally apropos here.

Our bags are packed, inventoried, and ready to be locked down for transit. Tomorrow's outfits are picked out and ready to go. We're both freshly shorn; I even had time to get my nails done.

We are less than 24 hours from our scheduled departure time.

Let's do this.

This meme is making the rounds again, and this particular combination was just so striking, I couldn't help but post it. The directions, if you're unfamiliar:

  1. Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
    The first random article you get is the name of your band.
  2. Go to http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
    The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
    (My quote was only six words, so I broke it in the obvious place and went with that.)
  3. Go to http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
    Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
  4. Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together. (I used Serif PhotoPlus for this)

It's like Barbie for men.
