here comes that feeling again.

Time for my annual love affair with a tennis tournament.. and after Venus looking completely silly at the french open...I say this was silly because you can claim "woman power" all you want, but this outfit was "sexy" as defined by the male-gaze.

I think Venus is sexy when she aces a serve going 128mph. Why can't a female athlete be sexy without resorting to nude-shorts and black lace lingerie? If she isn't prancing around in things like this she gets called "mannish". There is a problem with this, this is not the kind of thing I want my future child to witness. A woman can be sexy and shoot a heck of a 3-ball. She can be sexy and turn double plays and throw a fastball. She can be sexy and fight for a rebound.

Then there are those people who will argue that Venus' outfits are her art. Ok, I guess I don't have a counter-point.

Bring on Wimbledon, Venus you will look sexy, powerful and great in the strict-Brit-dress-code.
(Oh and Andy, so will you) Go USA Tennis!

something about an angel just kills me

I am trying to get back into the swing of blogging. But I feel like there is nothing to say. So I thought I would talk about someone other than myself.

So here is one of the two shows Keenan is involved in this summer. Starting next week he will be in rehearsal from 9am-10pm everyday except Monday. It will be a little lonely for me.

He plays various charcters but here is one of the public shots of one of his costumes: the free range chicken

rainy days and Mondays

This is my perpetual calendar. My working gal friend Josie bought it for me recently to perk me up. It helps, mostly because you can turn a little dial for the weather for the day. I like that.
