In this time of uncertianty, its nice to know that no matter what, the holidays still roll around. Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. Not really because of the gifts I may get or receive, but its what the holiday season does to people. Everyone seems to really get what LOVE means. Hearts open up, people smile more, they wish each other Happy Holidays in passing (and actually mean it). We remember what giving is, and open up our pocketbooks to charities and people in need.
It’s what makes this season special! The warmth of life in December, the shared meals, the shared laughter, and many many memories.
My wish for each of you is that you have a warm, loving place to celebrate the season. Please, also take a moment to remember those of our brothers and sisters that arent home with us this season. They are overseas serving in the Military, and won’t get the option of spending time at home this holiday. Send them warm thoughts! And thank them when you see them around. Its because of what they do that you CAN disagree with the war if you so choose!
If you know of any military spouses who will be home alone, or for that matter anyone who will be home alone on Christmas, invite them over! Share your family with them! Trust me in knowing that will be the best gift they will get!
Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! And the best for a fun, exciting, challenging new year!!

Today we are going to see HairSpray!! YEAH, now, to be honest..I have never seen Hairspray the movie or otherwise, so I am sure I am in for a treat. My friends seem to think I know all the words to all the musicals, when really its just the Sound of Music I can sing along to word for word he he he….
Dinner in Ybor, cocktails with my Sistahs, a night at the theater…can anything really be better?
Okay, so we went to see Hairspray, and allthough I can hear the bells, it was about all I could hear. We were either sitting in the Wrong place, or they sound was screwy... It was darn near impossible to hear anything that was a cast number (ie, the first and last numbers)...But I still totally enjoyed it!!
Heck, I got to eat some deeelicious spanish food, and it was To Die For. If are in Tampa, you MUST go to Columbia in Ybor City!!

That’s right kids, its vacation planning time again, and in a total turn of events—my hubby & I have decided to try a back to back cruise on the Jewel of the Seas (Royal
YEAH!! I am sooo excited, and in fact my husband will probably want to kill me soon, because I get giddy, and it just doesn’t stop until we go, get back, and I end up spending days doing laundry!! J

On Friday night we went with our gaybors shopping -- which, believe it or not was FUN. And some random woman gave us $20.00 when we told her we were buying for charity food baskets! People are still good deep down, and thats what so GREAT about the holiday season. We get infected by the good feeling of giving!!
So keep giving, the more you give, the more you will receive!! Lets make a few happy Christmases out there!
Hugs & Kisses to all my Wonderful Neighbors!

So, the "Christians" are staging a "save wal-mart" campaign--because Walmart is now promoting the Homo. Agenda and helping to undermine marriage (divorce anyone?).
Anyway, take a look for your self. Though I hate to provide them with traffic, I find it very funny to read their point of view, and see just how far things can be skewed.
I find it particularly interesting that there is a blurb on their flyer about the morning after pill, and how wal-mart is helping to kill little boys and girls in the "privacy of American homes." Which would be my point exactly -- if you don't wanna take the pill--hey don't take it :-) Enjoy, laugh, get pissed off...I just know I won't be shopping at Wal Mart on Black Friday, and it has more to do with the crowds of bargain hunters than the few Activist Christians that may be on hand. (LINK HERE) (its a PDF File, and the website is http://www.savewalmart.com)
All the bosses are away, and short of being able to come to work casual--there isn't much civil disobedience going on around here.
We have training later today (not that fun) and a quick happy hour later...But the highlight of the day will be getting to see the rhaki sisters :-)

This was at a neighborhood function (http://www.historickenwood.org) and again, the lighting was just too good to pass up! I should carry my camera around with me more often!!
But I guess the animals "decided" to be gay too, after weighing all their options...
I miss the big city a little bit --- there is so much to do, and neat stuff you don't see in little city's like St. Pete. We don't have YOGA in the park, we don't have the big beautiful skyscrapers (thats a whole nother post), we don't have the city art projects (like the bean). But, big cities tend to be nice to visit -- but usually a bane to live in.
I love living in the gayborhood, and wouldn't dream of giving it up, and will get my fill of the big city when I travel -- and we love to do that! So you never know where you might see us next!!
We had this function where we were dealing with flower pots, and the sun was streaming in JUST right.. so while the composition isn't perfect (being how it was inside..) the light playing with the pots was fabulous! I just couldn't not take the picture, and now I can't not share it!
