Who is the Sexiest Otter in San Francisco?

My Boyfriend!

At least according to the Sisters Of Perpetual Indulgence and a bar full of and drunken bears and horny leather daddies. You see this weekend my sexy man, Stephen, won the Mr. Indulgence Otter competition (benefiting the Marine Mammal Center)at the this weekend.

You are kinda jealous, admit it.

OH!! I'm desperate to get a picture of Stephen's victory. So if you have something let me know.

Talk About 'Arousing The Body Politic'

Beau Breedlove (Charles Dickens, eat your heart out) the legislative intern whose intimate and controversial relationship with Portland Mayor Sam Adams caused people from all corners of the internet to call for Adams' resignation, recently announced he was posing for Unzipped magazine.

You know, looking at this cover I'd be tempted to throw away my political career too.

Living on the Edge of the Future

Remember that scene in 'Minority Report' where Tom Cruise interacts with his computer just by using his fingers? Well its about to be a reality. Pattie Maes' lab at MIT, (lead by a genius named Pranav Mistry)has developed a wearable device with a projector that will radically alter the way we interact with our environment.

Top O' the Morning!

That's right boys and girls, Saint Patrick's Day, that most hallowed of holy days is upon us. And how do we celebrate the Christinification of Ireland?


I've already started, so if you want to catch up you better double fist it.

Or at least, 'a thing,' a lamp to be specific.

I found this awesome rusty old lamp on the street a few weeks ago. i took it into Cliff's on market, and this super cute butch lesbian talked me through how to rewire the thing.

Now i'm going to reward myself with food.

Brace Yourself!

a gird your loins. (heh! loin.) The State Supreme Court is hearing arguments today regarding the repeal of Prop. 8.

My sources tell me that the Civic Center is already packed. One friend described it as 'like the siege from 'Willow' with signs taped to four by fours instead of swords and catapults'

umm... awesome.

Perhaps one of the Justices will look down on the unwashed throng and turn everyone into pigs. It could happen.

For the third time in just over a month, a healthy human placenta has been found by workers at the Urbana-Champaign Sanitary District. Urbana Police contacted the Champaign-Urbana Public Health District (CUPHD), and the Champaign County Coroner's Office for assistance with this unusual situation. According to the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency Rules and Regulations, human placentas are considered potentially infectious medical waste, and should not be disposed of in the municipal sewage system.

"I can say with absolute certainty that the Champaign-Urbana Public Health District has never received a call of this nature," said Julie A. Pryde, Public Health Administrator at CUPHD. "CUPHD has been asked by local authorities to assist with disseminating information to the community to ensure that this situation does not occur again."

Persons assisting with home births, human or animal, should not dispose of placentas through the municipal sewage system-through flushing down the toilet or depositing them in a storm sewer. Placentas should be treated as any other solid, potentially infectious medical waste, and disposed of properly. Hospitals, clinics, and the Champaign-Urbana Public Health District have contracts with licensed medical waste disposal companies.

His Smile

His smile is bright, false.
She does not contradict him
when he says 'i'm fine'

Mornin- er... AFTERNOON Cartoons

So the other night my boyfriend and i were digging through the depths of our cable providers 'on demand' programing (which we only ever do when we are to tired to think or talk and there is nothing we actually want to watch on). Anyway.

I had forgotten how DEEPLY weird and trippy the Thundercats are. Take the episode below for example, Tygra goes underground to discover the source of mysterious earthquakes, meets a nymph named 'Silkie' who gives him hallucinogenic fruit which turns him into a zombie crack addict. AMAZING. Even the non-drug metaphor episodes are acid-flash-back inducing; the random introduction of characters, strange stilted expositional dialogue, plots that start and stop at random, the way Mumm-ra 'The Ever Living' says his own name in every sentence... This is why everyone in my generation experiments with drugs.
