The SMC concert was a hoot. Leslie Jordan was hysterical. A sort of love child of Truman Capote and Blanche DeBois. And barely 5 feet tall. I loved his little vignettes, especially the one about his first job in Hollywood being the spokesperson for the Selective Service (all those sibilant S's!), and his "dream sequence" about trying to "recruit" 18 year old boys to serve their country. Hehehehe. The encore with him on a go-go stand, in gold lame, shaking his booty to "Dancing Queen" was perfect.

It's gorgeous in Seattle this weekend. And it's Gay Pride! Time to get out and enjoy it!

Teen Decapitated by Six Flags CoasterAUSTELL, Ga. (June 28) - A teenager was decapitated by a roller coaster after he hopped a pair of fences and entered a restricted area Saturday at Six Flags Over Georgia, authorities said.

Six Flags officials are uncertain why the unidentified 17-year-old from Columbia, S.C. scaled two six-foot fences and passed signs that said the restricted area was both off-limits and dangerous to visitors, spokeswoman Hela Sheth said in a news release.

dear p,
your pear martinis are PURE HEAVEN. and those accidents happen all the time, every day, but someone from the Disney corp. silences the families of the dead with cardboard cutouts of the mouse and tickets to the next 11 sequels to Pirates of the Carribean even if the accidents weren't Disney related.
love,
