She's rubber, his head is glue.

Now I know why they use Chinese bodies in the Union Station exhibit - they save a bundle on latex.

Pick Up Line!!!

What winks and fucks like a Tiger?

It's not meaningless if you mean it.

My response to nay-sayers:

"It’s hard to kill a dragon when you stand alone with only your sword. It’s the ability to bring the village over to look at the dragon, talk about the dragon, and develop strategy to bring him down - that truly makes a knight noble. With the village behind you, your sword becomes sharper, your armor stronger, your passion deeper. You’re still only a small man against a massive beast, but from the masses you have encouraged a couple more to fight with you, and together - you are determined to bring him down. His aged skin is tough and his natural weapons are hard to bear, yet you penetrate his hide and scar his pride. You turn around with your battle wounds to rally more people and to forge more weapons. Because no matter how futile the effort seems, the dragon is still there.

And he’s eating our children."

Thank you, Thank you!!

Thanks to everyone who came out on Friday night for the Viable Third Anniversary!! XO, Spyder, Kanga, Jim Waldo, A Librarian and my lovely co-host Dan, represented Kansas City well as we celebrated a blogging venture not to be forgotten. Thanks to Tony, for linking on his site and then posting a skeptical review of Airick this morning to remind me once again why the fight is so important!
The party reminded me of how small Kansas City is - new friends know blog friends, old students know favorite teachers, campaign people know friends of bloggers. It also reminded me why I started blogging - this community is where people from all over town, all through the spectrum of race, class and gender, all across the political board, come together and have conversations. . . conversations I can't find every day and conversations that need to happen. Thanks for coming out!!

And, a huge thank you to Myra Harper at Harper's 18th and Vine! If you have never heard of Strange Fruit or sampled food by this amazing lady, please go to lunch out at Harper's and discover what is possible in the pursuit of healthy AND delicious fare!

Viable Third Anniversary Party

March 15th marks the one year anniversary of the Viable Third. In the spirit of voting with our dollars and supporting these businesses who are bringing vitality and variety to the third district, we will be celebrating with a Happy Hour at Harper's 18th and Vine on Friday night.

There will be some food and drinks and a chance to meet Dr. Robyne Turner and Airick Leonard West - the heart and soul of this movement. If you want to meet people that are doing things for our community today, dedicating their lives for the betterment of the children and citizens of our city, and want to know what you can do to help - or why they do the things they do - please, come out and share in the discussion!

Please share this invitation and become a part of the Viable Third!!

Im not dead - I swear!

Yeah, I kinda fell off the face of the earth - first Elle came back from Mexico, all in one piece, thank you very much, had some dance competitions, fundraisers, midterms, you know - craziness in a bottle!! Not to mention the fun times had at the meetup that had me moving a little slowly for a couple days. It seems a little late to talk about it now - Faith, Heather, Spyder, and Average Jane posted about the good times, and I can't wait for the next one!

I'm taking in all the happenings in Kansas City and saving you all the trouble . . . I'll let you know whether to soak it up or squeeze it out!!
