What's New Pussycat ?

The cast of The Vagina Monologues .
Free Vino for V-Day .
Free Fish for V-Day.. how apropos .
Over sized platinum clothes pins are also artwork .... who knew ?
Niko's artwork speaks for itself .
Niko , the artist , and one of the beautiful people , both in tights and boots .
Eva and her boots .
N@ reading about aging foo foos .
Patsy Gallant woo hooing .....
Beautiful Sandra , beautiful Alice , and moi tickled pink .
Twiggy , N@, Scottypants , and Kittycakes .

Whoa , whoa whoa .. what's new was my virginal time hearing "The Vagina Monologues" at the Galerie MX in Montreal last night . As most of you already know my baby N@ was reading a part in the play . In my day ( and believe me I am well aware of how parental that sounds ) , we would have called it the "The Down There Monologues " or " The Pee Pee Monologues " . Heck , I am a grown woman and I can certainly say it now . All proceeds went to V-Day which is dedicated to stopping violence against women in our society . That is precisely the reason that N@ did the reading . As I hobnobbed with the beautiful people , it did not take me long to realize that I was behind the fashion times . I was wearing black dress pants . Most of the ladies had left their pants at home and just wore black tights and knee high boots . I must remember that . I ran into Eva Avila ( of Canadian Idol fame ) posing for photographers . We chatted for a bit then she booted it out in her black thigh highs . I strolled around with my free glass of chardonnay viewing the paintings on exhibit by an artist called Niko . All of the the art work featured paintings of women with huge red collagen lips . You could interpret that a few ways .
Niko was generous enough to give 15% of all her sales to V - Day . When the show started I wedged myself between the Global and CTV cameras and took my own pictoral. Natalie did a fantastic job of reading the old woman part . When Patsy Gallant went on and on mouthing guttural sounds about the little man in the boat , I thought there might have been a few guys in there who were anxious to get home and park the porpoise .
It was a fun night out and I learned a lot about art , fashion , and tacos . The best part of all was actually making new friends with the real beautiful people of the night ... Sandra , Alice , and Twiggy ...and of course , Scottypants and Kittycakes .
yes Virginia , there is a vagina and it is permissible to say it out loud .

Birth and Rebirth

These beautiful babies were born March 10th to a friend of mine . I remember last summer when this friend had agonized over how she would ever care for two babies when she already had a one year old son . God gives us only what He knows we can handle . As time went on and her belly grew and her twins developed inside the comfort of her womb , she came to accept the miracle growing inside of her with a grace and strength beyond her years . The birth is over but the labour is just beginning . Life is about labour .. and love ... and how we all deal with it .
It seems to me that life is forever a birthing process for each and every one of us ... of ideas , of circumstances , of places , of music ....of everything and anything .
The seasons of life are much like the seasons of the year . Spring is our time of rebirth and renewal . We celebrate Easter and Spring . We celebrate our rebirth .
Happy First Easter Jaden and Jasmine .

Cha Cha Nah

"Dancing with the Stars " premiere episode almost put me to ZZZZZZZZZZ.... oh wait , it did . I had 2 glasses of white wine and a slice of boredom on the side with crackers . Tonight I will switch between American Idol 's hopefuls and Prissy Presley 's mannequin dance .
Oh well , there is always "Lost " to make up for it all ....

A Bit Of Blarney

Happy St Paddy's Day to all !! May you all be blessed with the luck of the Irish .

"I'm looking over a four leaf clover
That I overlooked before
One leaf is sunshine, the second is rain,
Third is the roses that grow in the lane.
No need explaining the one remaining
Is somebody I adore.
I'm looking over a four leaf clover
That I overlooked before...."

Beautiful Day

I am not a winter person . In fact , the older I get the harder it is for me to like the snow and ice . I yearn for the newness of spring and the warmth of summer . But today , I saw the beauty of a winter's day . I saw the peacefulness that only nature can bring . I saw the winter with a new born perspective .

" The woods are lovely ,dark and deep ,
But I have promises to keep
And miles to go before I sleep ,
And miles to go before I sleep . "

Robert Burns .
